Objective

This study is the result of growing demand for research into back-related illnesses. The objective of the study is to compare the back postures of altogether 37 students and office employees as they are standing and when they are sitting on a saddle chair.

Method

The study was conducted using pantography when the students and office employees were standing and sitting on a new saddle chair.

Results

The lower back hollow (lordosis) was statistically considerably smaller (p<0.01) when the test subjects were sitting on a saddle chair instead of standing. The posture of the lumbar spine did not change.

Conclusions

According to this study, the posture of the lower back straightens when sitting on a saddle chair. This is probably due to the active influence of the back straightening muscles. This would indicate that the new saddle chair helps its users to retain the strength of the back-supporting muscles
