Ease back/neck/lower back pain

According to the Danish Health Authority, back pain and its consequences pose the greatest health problem among the Danish population. Approximately 30 per cent will experience back pain in any fortnightly period. Back, lumbar region and neck pain can be signs of serious conditions which can be investigated and treated, but in up to 80-90 per cent of cases, it is not possible to make a diagnosis.

Most cases of back pain are transient and will ease off and disappear by themselves. Research shows that you recover best and fastest if you maintain your activity level and continue with daily life as far as possible. 

Inappropriate and stressful work postures or sitting for a long time in the workplace or the home are often the cause of fatigue and pain in the neck, back and lower back. Putting excessive stress on the neck, bank and lower back can fortunately be avoided with a good, ergonomic work environment. For example, a suitable working technique and workplace setup, as well as the use of adjustable tables and chairs, can ensure a healthy work environment.

Finding the right chair

VELA has many years of experience of finding just the right chair to prevent and ease back, neck and lower back pain. VELA has several models of customised chairs, sit-stand chairs and stools which are well suited to the workplace or home and can help create an ergonomic environment.

For example, customised chairs can be adjusted and adapted to achieve a supportive, active sitting position. Sit-stand chairs make it possible to switch between sitting and standing and contribute to variation in a long working day. You can encourage an upright sitting position by using stools with or without a backrest or with an active seat, which can train the back and lower back while you are sitting down. Stools can also function as a secondary chair and therefore be an alternative to e.g. an office or customised chair, and therefore promote variation throughout the day.
