The OrthoLux Orthopedic Chair – A ‘Backsaver’

The OrthoLux Orthopedic chair is designed to provide optimal support and comfort, particularly for individuals who experience lower back pain. This chair is crafted with a focus on ergonomics, aiming to promote a healthy and comfortable sitting posture to reduce the risk of discomfort or pain associated with prolonged periods of sitting. Whether at work or play, this specialist orthopedic chair provides exceptional ergonomic comfort. What is an orthopedic chair?

The height adjustable backrest, free-float mechanism, multi-adjustable armrests and seat-depth adjustment are just some of the features found on this superior product.

The OrthoLux has a 150kg weight rating and comes with a 10-year warranty.

1. Backrest adjustment

The backrest on the OrthoLux can be adjusted in two distinctive ways to specifically suit your spine and prevent or reduce lower back pain. 

The free-float mechanism enables you to autonomously tailor the backrest angle to match your preferred working posture. The backrest offers the flexibility of being securely locked in four different positions, or it can be left in an unlocked, free-floating mode. In this mode, the backrest maintains continuous contact with your back, adapting to your movements. Additionally, the backrest height is adjustable, empowering you to place the lumbar support precisely where you find it most beneficial.

2. Seat adjustment

a. Seat angle

The OrthoLux allows for an adjustable seat angle, introducing a forward slope of up to 5 degrees. This adjustment 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?

b. Seat depth adjustment

The seat slider on the OrthoLux empowers you to fine-tune the seat depth, enabling you to move the seat pan backward or forward to align with the length of your thighs. When you are seated comfortably with your back against the backrest of the chair, there should be a 2-3 finger gap between the front edge of the seat and the back of your knees. This practice not only prevents strain behind the knees but also provides optimal upper leg and under thigh support, promoting good blood circulation.

  • For taller individuals with longer legs, a seat slider allows you to INCREASE the seat depth, thereby maintaining a correct ergonomic seated posture. Conversely, a shorter person should consider REDUCING the seat depth. If the seat is excessively long (deep), anyone with shorter legs might find themselves sitting on the front edge of the seat, leading to a lack of adequate back support.
  • If you have a coccyx-related issue, a chair featuring seat depth adjustment can be invaluable. This customisation capability allows you to tailor the seat depth to alleviate pressure on the coccyx, contributing to enhanced comfort and wellbeing.

3. Armrest adjustment

The armrests on the OrthoLux 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 OrthoLux has a Free-Float mechanism that promotes Dynamic Sitting.


ortholux orthopedic chairDynamic 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?
