Why use lumbar support cushions?
Working in a seated position for extended periods is one of the main contributors to low-back pain, whether in an office chair, driving long distances, or operating heavy machinery. In fact, back pain associated with prolonged periods of sitting with inadequate lumbar support is the most prevalent and costly work-related musculoskeletal disorder today. One cost effective solution is to provide workers with lumbar support cushions.
Tips for a healthy back
Make sure the cushion fits into the natural curve of your back and fully supports the area between your lower back and the back of the chair.
Avoid forward leaning or slouching in your chair, which puts undue stress on the lumbar discs and muscles of your lower back.
Movement is good! While sitting, recline slightly, and shift your position to avoid pressure points.
