The ergonomic headrest, which is adjustable and removable, allows you to adjust it for perfect comfort. The ‘zero-gravity’ position gives maximum comfort with the legs placed slightly above the heart making circulation easier. The elastic lacing suspension system provides users with very good back support, flexible comfort and can be replaced. This chair not only provides excellent comfort for general relaxation whether in the garden, on a campsite, by the beach or at home, it also has fantastic benefits when used in reflexology.

 

Health benefits with a Lafuma Reclining Chair.

There are 2 main reasons why a zero-gravity chair (or anti-gravity) chair can benefit the body.

1. No pressure points on the body.

To be classed as a zero gravity chair the angle must be that of 127°. Any other degree is wrong, NASA have proved this. This angle creates a weightlessness sensation where the body feels no pressure points from being in the chair. The weight of your body is evenly spread out. With other products (not at 127°) when the user gets up after long periods of use the body can feel stiffness or aches/pains, this is similar to sleeping on a poorly supported mattress overnight. Lafuma recliners are being used in neonatal units around the world, this is ideal for parents who need to lie with their premature babies and have uninterrupted skin to skin contact with them for up to 8 hours pain free.

In addition, muscular tension in the lumbar region is reduced, circulation in the lower limbs is improved and the amount of effort required from the heart is lessened. The open angle between the torso and the thighs promotes lung expansion for improved oxygenation.

Stress puts demands on the back, leading to premature degeneration of the spine. Being able to relax and decompress the lumbar discs in a zero-gravity chair is therefore beneficial to your health.

2. The feet are the same level as the heart.

When fully reclined in a Lafuma Recliner, the users’ ankles are slightly above the level of their heart, this gradually slows the heart rate down as there is less work for the heart to do. We have shown that after 4 minutes in our chairs the heart rate is reduced, and the person feels more relaxed. This is great for those who can’t take medication for blood pressure and heart rate problems!

In addition, muscular tension in the lumbar region is reduced, circulation in the lower limbs is improved and the amount of effort required from the heart is lessened. The open angle between the torso and the thighs promotes lung expansion for improved oxygenation.

The position of the legs at the same level as the heart allows for a considerable reduction in pressure on the lower back and the spinal column.
