How the ErgoFlip Benefits..
Kathryn Anderson, Physiotherapist explains, “We strive to ensure that everyone has a chance to Sit-Well, and the ErgoFlip is designed specifically to break the monotony of static postures and encourage active sitting. You will notice when you sit on the ‘motion cushion’, the gentle & flexible nature of the sitting surface accommodates the natural shape of the pelvis, in addition to creating an active surface for the surrounding muscles to work the way they were designed.
You will particularly note the way the sitting surface actively supports the lumbar spine.
It is common that sitting on a regular chair promotes lumbar flexion, or posterior pelvic. Those with lower back pain will often find this position aggravates their pain. Due to the active movement that’s encouraged by the ErgoFlip, the user has a greater ability to hold neutral spine, and therefore to unload the spinal structures. This is true not just of the lumbar spine and pelvis region, but of the entire back, through the conversion of the ‘C’ shaped spine which helps to unload and relieve the entire spine.
The dynamic nature of the sitting surface encourages the active muscles to work and achieves our goal of sitting well.”
The Ergoflip has been listed in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) Medical Device Class 1 under registration No: 305942 which has a ruling of GST free by Australian Tax Office.
