New Chair Balances Aesthetics and Ergonomics
May 1, 2006, Dedham, AliMed® inc., a leading designer, manufacturer, and distributor of ergonomic solutions, now offers the new Neutral Posture Balance(TM) chair. The chair's clean lines, simple yet elegant form, and European-styled controls prove that ergonomic seating can look as good as it feels. And with both passive and active ergonomic features, the Balance chair feels good.
The Balance chair's back support structure is made of foam and mesh that automatically adjust to the contours of the user's back. Its arm pads are topped with gelthane, a compound that combines the durability of urethane with the soft support of gel.
Any user is sure to find the right fit in the Balance chair. It features adjustable back and seat angle, seat tension and height, arm height and width, and arm pad positioning. The well-padded seat sits atop a synchronous knee-tilt mechanism that has a side-activated tension knob, multi-locking positioning, and anti-kickback and anti-rocking motion with free float that allow the user to balance effortlessly.
With seven adjustable features, the Balance chair has the potential to be an unsightly mess of knobs and levers. But its ergonomically positioned levers retract out of sight while remaining easily accessible to the user when seated.
The sleek, comfortable, and healthy Balance chair can be found in AliMed's 2007 Issue 1 Ergonomics catalog. To request a free copy, please call 800-225-2610 or log onto www.AHMed.com.
