Pain affects adults’ job performance and career stability, as well as the sufferer’s mood and behavior. Complications from back pain include
Research on low back pain has shown that disc misalignment is worse for people sitting in a typical 90-degree position. Discs move the least, and thus minimize back pain, when people recline to a 135-degree sitting position (see right). Researcher Dr. Waseem Amir Bashir explained
We were not created to sit down for long hours, but somehow modern life requires the vast majority of the global population to work in a seated position. This made our search for the optimal sitting position all the more important….Sitting in a sound anatomic position is essential, since the strain put on the spine and its associated ligaments over time can lead to pain, deformity and chronic illness….A 135-degree body-thigh sitting posture was demonstrated to be the best bio-mechanical sitting position, as opposed to a 90-degree posture, which most people consider normal….This may be all that is necessary to prevent back pain, rather than trying to cure pain that has occurred over the long term due to bad postures.
Before Rest-A-Desk arrived, industry experts noted the absence of a practical, fully-reclinable computer workstation:
The Solution. Based on decades of back pain research, the key advantage of Rest-A-Desk’s patented design is that you can position the independently adjustable monitor and keyboard platforms wherever your computing position completely relaxes your neck, arms, shoulders, and back. Bringing the computer to you, rather than the other way around, can reduce and prevent back, neck, and shoulder pain. The desired result is for you to be able to use your computer longer and with less pain, which can lead to decreasing your need for pain medications and generally feeling healthier and more productive.
Rest-A-Desk connects to your desktop or laptop (PC or MAC), and safely locks into your most comfortable position—fully upright (seated), completely supine (lying), or anywhere in between.
With its ergonomic, safe, and economical design, Rest-A-Desk can reduce and prevent pain for computer users wherever they may be—at home, in medical settings, or at the office. Rest-A-Desk’s hospital-grade equipment is such high quality that we provide a no-cost, 10-year replacement warranty on the components (the monitor/keyboard set has a 1-year warranty).
Rest-A-Desk was built to accommodate painful medical conditions including:
Muscle strain or sprain
Degenerative disc disease
Failed back surgery
