Umana compares the chair with the benefits that it produces to be sitting on a pilates ball
Forma 5 has been collaborating for some years with Biomechanic research as the IBV (Biomechanic Institute of Valencia) or Umana, specialists in Biomechanic and Occupational Health. As consequence, many of the programs of their portfolio are certified after having passed successfully the tests and their pertinent proofs.
A few months ago, Forma 5 sent the 3.60 Task Chair to the Umana company, which has been responsible to test and elaborate a report that has resulted a highly satisfactory grade.
In this way, Umana compares the chair with the benefits that it produces to be sitting on a pilates ball, because when the ball swings, the body is in a constant tension and looking for the balance. In case of 3.60, thanks to the mechanism that allows it to swing head on and laterally, in this case with a synchro movement, the task chair produces the same effect. In addition, it is combined with a better support thanks to the backrest, the armrests and the lumbar adjustment.
For this reason, with the continued use in the office, it produces benefits for the body such as the improvement of the physical condition, the contact comfort, the posture of the body, the comfort in the back and even it prevent sweating.
Other certificate programs are Eben or Sentis.
