„THE KEY COMPONENT: THE BACKREST“

Lumbar support

The optional Schukra lumbar support for padded backrests can be adjusted by hand wheel manually in height and depth to the optimal working or resting position. A height-adjustable lumbar support is integrated in each of the padded backrest series.

Backrests in many varieties

MONICO® has a number of different backrests. The backrest is the key component of the chair and therefore the most distinctive module of MONICO®.

INSTRUCTION
MANUAL

The most complex technology in an office chair is worth nothing, if the user can‘t handle the chair properly. Then, even a high-tech office chair just stays a simple chair. However, we think ahead – for our customers. Therefore, our customers will find a small flyer with simple operating instructions delivered with every MONICO® chair by Original Steifensand. If the user wants to adjust his seat properly, the flyer is always close at hand. This makes it possible to fully use all advantages of the MONICO® chair. And to prove that it is not „just“ a chair.

1. Learn to adjust your office chair correctly.

 

Get familiar with your ergonomic office chair. Only if you know its functions and are able to easily adjust it, your office chair will help you to find a perfect and healthy sitting posture during your everyday work.

 

2. Adjust the height
of table and chair correctly.

 

While sitting, your upper and lower arm, as well as your upper and lower leg, should form a right angle. Your feet should be firmly on the ground and your arms should lie loosely on the table. It is recommended to sit in a slightly tilted position in order to slightly straighten up the pelvis.

By the way: If you sit on the front edge with strongly tilted thighs, you are not stable. Bending your knees in smaller angles affects blood circulation.


3. Please use your whole office chair.

 

Make sure that backrest and seating surface of your office chair are ergonomically shaped and use them. The bulge of the backrest should support your back in the lower and middle part (lumbar spine).


Adjust the backrest to your individual body size. In addition to this, please use the entire seating surface. It should support two thirds of your thighs.

 

 


4. Sit in an upright position – with the help of your office chair.


If your pelvis is slightly tilted forward, you can avoid hyperkyphosis and ensure an upright sitting position. This has enormous advantages: Muscles and intervertebral disks are stressed equally. There is no pressure on the stomach. The legs are better supplied with blood.

However, THE right sitting posture for sitting for hours on end does not exist. Therefore: Change your sitting posture regularly and stand up from time to time. This way, the back muscles stay in motion and the blood circulation is stimulated.

 

 


5. Do not forget to stay in motion – even while sitting down.


Use your office chair‘s dynamic sitting function. Vary between different sitting positions (tilted forwards,
upright, reclined). And let your backrest support you while sitting.

This avoids one-sided strains of the spine. And it improves the blood circulation within the muscles of the intervertebral disks.
