Ergonomics and orthopedics are now playing an ever increasing role in chair design as engineers seek to make chairs not only feel good, but also to actively support our skeletal and muscular structure. The result of these analytical ways of evaluating chair design have seen the development of orthopedic chairs and task chairs – chairs that work with our body and that stay in harmony with the tasks or activities that we perform whilst seated on them. With an increasingly sedentary work force and more and more chair based hobbies and pastimes, how well our chairs support us is becoming increasingly important and this is being recognised in the future design of chairs.
There are also self adjusting chairs that shape themselves to the natural curves and bends of the back, shoulders, bottom and upper thighs by reacting to the different pressure points applied to them. These chairs will support everyone who sits on them in a slightly different way by taking account of their personal biology, weight and body shape. Ultimately the future holds many advances in ergonomic, orthopedic and active support chair design and we are just beginning to see the first fruition of these developments.
