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.
So what does the future have to offer? Already there are chairs in stores and in development that are replicating human biology in their design. These chairs have seat and backrest designs based around the human spine with the concept that a chair with a spine can support a body based around a skeletal spine. Each of the mechanical vertebrae segments making up the chair’s spine is hinged allowing them to move uniformly in equilibrium with a human back. Other developments are exploring advanced chairs that move as the body moves. These chairs cease to be passive supports and become automatically adjusting supports that move and twist as the person sitting on them moves.
