Q:- What Research Is There on Seat Cushions & Back Pain?
Study 1: “Effect of a high-density foam seating wedge on back pain intensity when used by 14 to 16-year-old school students: a randomised controlled trial”
Description: This study found that using a high-density foam seating wedge reduced average self-reported back pain among school students. This is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design as it supports the importance of using high-density foam to provide proper support and comfort for the user, reducing the risk of back pain.
Study 2: “Novel natural rubber latex memory foam”
Description: This study found that natural latex foam can offer proper spine and joint support, prevent back pain and improve blood flow. This is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design as it supports the use of natural latex foam as a material that provides the necessary support and comfort to the user.
Study 3: “Sitting biomechanics, part II: optimal car driver’s seat and optimal driver’s spinal model”
Description: This study found that electromyography readings favoured a 110-degree angle between the seat and the back of the chair. This is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design as it supports the importance of having an angle of 110 degrees for comfort and proper spinal alignment.
Study 4: “Are you really sitting comfortably? A field study of a forward sloping chair and sedentary low back pain sufferers”
Description: This study found that users who sit with an “open” trunk-thigh angle (approximately 110-120 degrees) will be more comfortable. This is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design as it supports the importance of having an open angle between the trunk and the thigh for comfort and proper spinal alignment.
Study 5: “Sitting—an electromyographic and mechanical study”
Description: This study found that an angle of 110 degrees between the seat and the back of the chair and the back should be curved to fit a spinal 1-2 cm lordosis. This is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design as it supports the importance of having a curved back that fits a spinal lordosis for comfort and proper spinal alignment.
Study 6: “Study on Resilience of Mattress Foam and Body Pressure Distribution Characteristics of Mattress”
Description: This study found that the resilience of latex foam was better and the body pressure distribution was improved. This is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design as it supports the use of latex foam for its resilience and improved body pressure distribution for comfort and proper support.
Study 7: ‘Latex reduced peak body pressure and achieved a more even distribution of pressure compared with polyurethane across different postures.
Description: This study provides evidence that latex materials can effectively reduce peak body pressure and distribute pressure more evenly compared to polyurethane materials. This information is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design because it highlights the importance of using materials that are able to provide adequate support and cushioning, while also reducing the risk of pressure injuries. This study supports my decision to use latex as a primary material in the design of my seat cushion, as it helps to prevent discomfort and improve posture.
Q: What Causes Back Pain?
Lower back pain is the most common type of back pain, and it can be caused by a variety of factors. These include:
- congenital skeletal abnormalities such as scoliosis, lordosis, and kyphosis
- degenerative conditions like arthritis, spondylosis, and disc degeneration.
- Other potential causes of low back pain include spinal problems like sciatica, ruptured discs, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and osteoporosis.
- Additionally, conditions like piriformis syndrome, fibromyalgia, endometriosis, pregnancy, and tumors can also contribute to back pain.
Certain lifestyle factors can also increase the risk of developing back pain. Overweight and elderly individuals are more prone to back pain, as are those who lead sedentary lifestyles or have poor posture. Individuals who sit for prolonged periods of time, especially with inadequate back support, are at an increased risk of developing back pain. Stress, anxiety, and depression have also been linked to an increased risk of back pain.
As a chiropractor, I usually recommend that individuals maintain regular movement and exercise, along with using proper seat cushions that may help prevent back pain. A healthy back also depends on getting enough quality sleep, as poor sleep can contribute to back pain and impact overall well-being. Therefore, having a good sitting posture during the day and a proper sleeping position at night can help individuals maintain a healthy back and minimize the risk of developing back pain.
Q: Chiropractor Explains: Ergonomic VS Orthopedic VS Memory foam Seat Cushion?
Ergonomic seat cushions are designed to help you sit in a way that promotes good posture. These cushions are made to support your spine and hips, reducing the amount of pressure on your back and joints. By using an ergonomic seat cushion, you can avoid common posture problems that can lead to pain and discomfort.
Orthopedic seat cushions, on the other hand, are designed by medical experts such as chiropractors and physical therapists. These cushions are meant to provide targeted support and relief for people who suffer from chronic back pain or injuries. They often feature special cutouts or contours that help to redistribute pressure and provide additional support where it’s needed.
Finally, there’s memory foam seat cushions. While I’ve worked with memory foam for many years, I’ve grown to prefer other materials such as natural latex. This is because natural latex is more comfortable, supportive, and less toxic. That being said, memory foam seat cushions are made from a special type of foam that molds to your body shape, providing customized support that can be beneficial for people with certain pain conditions.
In summary, whether you’re looking for a cushion to improve your posture, relieve chronic pain, or provide customized support, there’s a seat cushion out there that can meet your needs.
