The OrthoAir Orthopedic Chair – Affordable Back Pain Relief

Blending modern design with unparalleled comfort, the mesh back OrthoAir Orthopedic Chair is perfect for both work and leisure. With extensive adjustability, this chair excels in offering optimal support for both lower and upper back without breaking your budget. What is an orthopedic chair?

The height adjustable backrest, free-float mechanism and multi-adjustable armrests are just some of the features found on this state-of-the-art chair.

Available with and without a headrest, the OrthoAir has a 120kg weight rating and carries a 5-year warranty.

1. Backrest adjustment

We work in different positions and we all have a preferred seated posture. The backrest on the OrthoAir can be adjusted in three distinctive ways to specifically suit your spine and prevent or reduce lower and upper back pain.

a. Backrest angle

The 3-lever free-float mechanism allows you to independently adjust the angle of the backrest to suit your specific working position. The backrest can be locked in any position, or alternatively left in an unlocked or “free-floating” position where it will follow the movement of your back. 

b. Backrest height adjustment

The height of the backrest on the OrthoAir can be adjusted so you can position the support ‘exactly where you need it’.

c. Lumbar support adjustment

The lumbar support can be adjusted vertically to enable you to ‘fine-tune’ the support for your lower back.

2. Seat adjustment

The mechanism on the OrthoAir enables you to adjust the seat angle and lock it in any desired position. A forward slope of up to 5 degrees is possible, which lowers your knees in relation to your hips, effectively “opening” the pelvis. The opening of the pelvis promotes a more natural curvature of the spine, alleviating pressure on the lumbar discs during sitting. This adjustment significantly reduces the risk of experiencing lower back pain. What actually happens when you sit?

The OrthoAir does not have a seat slider for adjusting the depth of the seat. If you are above average height with long legs or have a coccyx-related concern, the absence of a seat slider may render this chair unsuitable for you. In such instances, we suggest opting for an ergonomic chair equipped with a seat slider.

3. Armrest adjustment

The armrests on the OrthoAir are multi-adjustable. This allows you to position the supporting pads for optimum comfort while you work.

In addition to vertical height adjustment, the arm pads can be adjusted horizontally and also pivoted inwards/outwards.

The OrthoAir has a Free-Float mechanism that promotes Dynamic Sitting.

orthoair orthopedic office chair

Dynamic sitting occurs in an office chair that is fitted with a mechanism that allows the angle between the backrest and seat to change. By continuously changing this angle, you automatically stimulate, or activate various muscles in your lower back, core and legs. As a result, the blood flow through these muscles increases, bringing oxygen and other nutrients to the muscles and carrying away the waste products of muscle metabolism. By doing so, muscle fatigue and it’s associated pain is reduced, particularly in the lower back, core and legs.

An Orthopedic Chair is recommended for anyone who has chronic lower back pain. An orthopedic chair must have a forward-tilting seat function that reduces the rotation of the pelvis when sitting down. This decreases the disc pressure in the lumbar region of the back while you are seated. Compared to an ergonomic chair, an orthopedic chair has additional features to ensure the chair can be adjusted to specifically address chronic lower back pain. What is an orthopedic chair?
