Kobo Chair by DK&E Technology
Musculoskeletal pain is a frequent complaint among dental healthcare workers. The human body was not meant to remain in the same position for prolonged periods of time, but due to the nature of dental work and the majority of time spent sitting and performing delicate procedures, repetitive strain and back injuries have become a common problem.
Most back problems occur in the lumbar vertebrae which consists of the five lowest vertebrae. Sitting strains this lower back area far more than standing, especially when coupled with poor sitting posture. Chair backs are meant to support the back, but when you lean forward, the back is no longer supported and your muscles tire. This leads to slouching, which flattens out your lower back and decreases your normal lordotic curve. Good posture should put the least amount of stress on your body, and for the back, this means maintaining your natural lordotic curve (the natural curve of your back when standing straight).
Kobo Chair has an innovative design to provide support for dental care workers who need to lean forward the majority of their day to perform dental work. The front panel supports the clinician so that he or she can get closer to the treatment area without losing back support. The fully adjustable armrests swivel out, allowing shoulders and arms to remain in a healthy, relaxed position during dental procedures. The seat height is adjustable to provide a comfortable fit to any individual.
Kobo Chair was designed with your comfort and health in mind.
