Experiencing discomfort while sitting can have several causes. Some of the places discomfort is reportedly expieriend by chair users are the following areas.
- The lower back
- The Coccyx
- The SI-joint
Instability or the limitation of mobility or space in one of the areas mentioned may also be the cause of discomfort.
The aim of this project is to create a chair that can alleviate the discomfort and provide more functionality for the patient.We have created a functional prototype that was tested by a small group of 4 patients for a limited time. Though the feedback is encouraging, we need to expand the test with a larger group of minimal 10 patients for a prolonged period of three months minimum to compare to a control group using normal office chairs.
The project aims to raise Eur 12.500,- now to fund the validation test.
