Human Touch Perfect Chair® PC-420 Classic Manual Plus with SofHyde PC Pad and Black Base
Our vision was to create a chair so extraordinary, it deserves to be called the Perfect Chair. By skillfully blending contemporary architecture with old-world craftsmanship, we laid the foundation for the chair’s bold yet classic look. The Perfect Chair’s body-frame ergonomics are inspired by the neutral body posture chaise position developed by NASA to support astronauts during their ascent into orbit.
Benefits of Zero Gravity
Zero Gravity Chairs have taken full advantage of the relief and relaxation made possible when the body assumes the Neutral Body Posture position. Through these advances, it has been discovered that many other relaxation and health benefits occur during this position. The human body experiences less pressure on the spine because of the distribution of forces across the body, reduced muscle tension because of the natural relaxation effect of the posture, less pressure on the heart as it has to work less to pump blood through the body, increased lung capacity because of the expanded lungs in the neutral position, and increased circulation and blood oxygen levels because of the ripple effect of greater lung capacity and decreased stress on the heart. All of this is made possible by raising the legs above the heart and assuming a zero gravity position taking compression pressure off off the spine.
Maximum Relaxation in the Neck and Back
The human spine is designed in an 'S' shaped curve and divided into 3 regions: neck, upper back, and lower back. When there isn't pressure on the muscles of the spine at any curve, we achieve a natural position of the spine. In a Zero Gravity chair or lounger, the torso and thighs are in perfect alignment, the feet relaxed above the level of the heart and head, and the hips and the ankles create a 90-degree angle between them. This results in a neutral position of the spine where gravitational forces do not affect it. It's design supports the natural curves of the spine along with the upper and lower back. Thus the neck and back are completely free of muscle tension and pain.
Relief to the Muscles
In a variety of relaxation positions, we unknowingly put pressure on our lower back (think sitting at a desk all day, then sitting on a couch at home.) When a person enters into a Zero Gravity position, the muscles are released from this pressure, and oxygen-rich blood can relax the muscles completely.
Expansion of the Lungs
When an open angle is created between the torso and thighs, more space is created for the diaphragm to expand. This results in an increase in of oxygen from the air and expanded lungs and promotes deeper breathing. All of these things will allow for a better blood flow bringing more oxygen to all parts of your body.
Less Pressure on the Heart
In a zero gravity position, the blood flow from the heart changes. When a human is in an upright position, the heart is required to work against the force of gravity to pump blood to the extremities. In a reclined position, the situation is obviously reversed. Blood flows into the heart with the support of gravity as opposed to against it, essentially accommodating the heart's natural function.
Full Support Head Pillow
The comfort pillow of the Human Touch Perfect Chair PC-420 Classic Plus cradles the head and neck while providing ergonomic support.
The wide and long armrests of the Human Touch Perfect Chair PC-420 Classic Plus give constant support even as the chair reclines into zero-gravity.
The smooth recline motion eases back the Perfect Chair to position your body in a state of virtual weightlessness.
Adjustable Lumbar Support
The adjustable lumbar system is equipped with a release valve, allowing you to customize your seating comfort.
