Some FACTS first:
We sit on average 8 HOURS a day
Most people sit with a TILTED PELVIS
Long sitting with a tilted pelvis causes PAIN
is a TILTED PELVIS and
why is it
harmful to the body health?
Simply put, a tilted pelvis means the anatomically incorrect alignment of the pelvis. It can be tilted forward or backward, both are a very common case during long sitting.
Both, front and back tilted pelvis, have negative impact on the whole spine.
As a result, structures around the spine shorten and tense, which in turn affects the entire skeletal system, including muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, fasciae, nerves, etc.
Over time, these shortened and tense structures cause pain and postural health complaints, such as:
numbness in legs and arms
pelvic floor weakness, etc.
Sitting with an upright pelvis can be CRUTIAL for the body health.
Or, in other words, and this is
front tilted pelvis
back tilted pelvis
centred pelvis on the Air8 cushion
Air8back:up can help to reduce pelvic tilt and support sitting with the pelvis upright
With this special cushion, ones back can not lean against a back rest and sink in while sitting. The torso has to be straightened again and again, which is obviously much easier with the cushion than without.
Air8back:up stops the unhealthy leg cross and supports a straight leg axix
The rounded segments of the cushion support a straight and relaxed leg axis and thus prevent the development of orthopaedic problems such as bow-legs or knock-knees.

Air8back:up strengthens the pelvic floor and prevents postural pelvic problems
Active sitting on Air8 can also strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. Since the air-filled cushion does not form a firm base, the balance must be unconsciously constantly adjusted.
These balancing micro-movements of the bony pelvis activate and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. A strong pelvic floor can relieve health problems, such as
loss of sexual sensitivity,
