The First Health-Positive Chair

Medical research suggests that our sedentary behaviors, especially long hours of sitting, contribute to obesity and the negative outcomes associated with it—diabetes, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, and mortality [1]. Yes, we should all exercise more, but the truth is that sitting for hours every day in front of a computer is a fact of life that won't change any time soon.

Embody is the first health-positive chair. So advanced that it actually lowers your heart rate and reduces stress. Keeping you focused and relaxed at the same time by stimulating blood and oxygen flow while you sit. You'll feel like you're floating, which means you'll feel more alert. Your brain will be more alert too—coming up with those innovative ideas that keep your company lively and productive.

 

 
 


   

  Healthful Movement and Support

The back of the chair looks like a spine? Entirely intentional. Embody's instinctive back adapts to your movement, adjusting automatically to your shifting positions, keeping your spine aligned and healthy. Whether you lean forward or recline, your lower back support remains constant—no adjustments needed.


The narrow backrest lets your arms move unimpeded, adding comfort and encouraging additional air movement into the lungs to feed your brain.

 

 

 


   

The Embody tilt technology places rotation points within the seat and back, so the base of the back remains fixed relative to the seat, encouraging the body to move naturally into the most positive seated postures. This technology provides three zones of support—for the thighs, sacrum/sitting bones, and thorax. The pelvis remains stable with no rearward rotation.


Without a rigid frame and with edges that flex, Embody prevents uncomfortable pressure on your legs and arms.

 
 


   
 

Embody encourages the most healthful posture for computer users—working recline, which reduces spine compression and even slows fluid loss from discs. The BackFit adjustment positions the backrest in line with your spine's natural curve, so you achieve and maintain a neutral, balanced posture. Even when you move in the chair, your head will remain properly aligned to your computer display.
