The Design and Use of Healthy Seating

Jennifer Pynt, Joy Higgs

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    This book examines the relationship between sitting posture and seating design and the health of the low back. It is written by physiotherapists for people who sit for leisure or in the office, for people who design seating and for health professionals involved in the treatment of clients with back pain. Current and past scientific literature regarding sitting posture and seating design is clarified and distilled into a readily accessible format, with regular summaries. The reported research demonstrates that some popular leisure seat designs encourage poor sitting postures leading to low back pain, the onset of which may not occur until the following day. The book makes recommendations for enhancement of seating design, education and use in, and beyond, the office.
