Thorasic S’port* ridge
This optional extra is often suggested for those suffering a herniated disc. A ‘ridge’ of S’port foam is built up, during the hand-crafting of the chair back. This supportive ‘ridge’ encourages the sitter to preserve the natural curve of the spine, so alleviating pressure on the herniated disc.
An additional passive ergonomic feature is that the ‘ridge’ persuades the user to roll the shoulders back and open the chest cavity. This reduces pressure where the main nerve bundles pass through the shoulders and so reduces discomfort.
The S’ port* ridge option automatically includes a whole back upholstered in S’port* foam so giving greater comfort all round.
