There is a lot of misinformation out there regarding zero gravity chairs. It’s easy to claim, but only the very best recliners actually offer a zero gravity position in the way they are designed and manufactured. Based on years of research and decades of expertise in ergonomic chair design, Positive Posture® recliners offer the perfect zero gravity angle of recline, weight distribution, body support and personalized comfort that has earned the title of The Most Comfortable Furniture on Earth™.
You hear a lot of talk these days about zero gravity in everything from office chairs to automobile seats. But the term “zero gravity” can be a bit confusing. To begin with, it doesn’t mean that when you sit down, you suddenly find yourself in a state of weightlessness. To do that, you’ll have to book a flight on the International Space Station.
Here on Earth, zero gravity refers to the NASA-inspired concept of reducing the effects of gravity on the human body. The tremendous and sudden g-force placed on astronauts as they accelerate out of the earth’s gravitational pull creates multiple health risks including intense strain on back muscles. NASA scientists determined that by putting the astronauts in a reclined position with their feet above their heads, the pressure of liftoff would be distributed across the astronaut’s entire body, rather than concentrated in one place. Thankfully, those same ergonomic benefits can be translated into a high quality, zero gravity recliner you can enjoy in your own home.
Because everyone’s body is different, finding the ideal zero gravity position is unique to each individual. That’s why traditional recliners that only offer two or three pre-set positions cannot provide the support you need. (In fact, many name brand recliners are so poorly designed that they can actually be harmful to your back.) Instead, a recliner capable of infinite adjustment is a better solution. And with multiple members of a household using the same recliner, the best zero gravity position will be different for each person using it. A chair capable of precisely fine-tuned adjustments will allow all users to enjoy their own personal zero gravity position in the chair.
A zero gravity recliner will also allow the user to enjoy flexion and extension of the knees and hips, thus helping to relieve these key areas of joint pain. Also, when seated for a long period of time, it is beneficial to periodically change positions. So while a zero gravity chair offers many health benefits, a recliner should also offer comfort and support in other positions—everything from upright for reading or to a relaxed, reclined position for watching television.
Another advantage of the zero gravity position is that it promotes circulation and reduces swelling in your legs. And by sitting in a position that elevates your legs over the level of your heart, you can help reduce the effects of a number of circulation-related conditions including varicose veins, atherosclerosis, diabetes and high blood pressure.
In addition to its True Zero Gravity® gravity position, power recliners from Positive Posture also offer an even further reclined position that places legs and feet significantly higher above the heart. This unique High Therapy Position promotes improved circulation and relieves swollen ankles and edema. It can also be a therapeutic position for recovering from an injury.
Not all recliners that claim to offer zero gravity positioning actually deliver on that promise. So before buying a zero gravity chair, take the time to do your research. Find a manufacturer that has performed the necessary ergonomic engineering to produce a chair that can truly deliver all the benefits of zero gravity seating.
With Positive Posture, you can enjoy the many advantages of zero gravity positioning, along with the most responsive, adaptable controls. Positive Posture’s whisper-quiet motors offer smooth, independent operation of the leg rest and back rest, providing an infinite number of positions so you can Find Your Comfort.™ And with its stylish good looks, and your choice of fabrics and leather coverings, it will look as good as it makes you feel.
