SMARTSEAT™: Posture Corrector to Relieve Lower Back and Sciatica Pain
About SmartSeat®: Say goodbye to lower back and sciatica pain
SmartSeat™ posture corrector will make sitting with legs UN-crossed feel good. The special slope of the seat means that the sitter can comfortably sit for long periods in pelvic neutral, or even anteverted (tilt forward) or rock the pelvis for more flexibility. This seating posture helps relieve lower back and sciatica pain as it takes the act of sitting from a negative to neutral by enabling the body to distribute the weight of the upper and lower part better, giving a feeling of lightness. Sitting in a posterior tilt is a feeling of heaviness and compression. Using this posture corrector seat, you will feel lighter, pain-free, and more flexible which means more energy!
WHY SMARTSEAT™ WORKS
Sitting with legs crossed feels comfortable because the body is smart and adapts to this posture. SmartSeat™ provides a way to erase this muscle memory and acts as a posture corrector by substituting a better, bio-mechanically correct seated posture to relieve lower back pain, spider veins, and sciatic nerve pain. Additionally, you will avoid:
- Abdominals inhibited—especially internal oblique muscles.
- Pelvis in a posterior tilt so there is compression on the femoral nerve, artery and veins bilaterally which restricts circulation to the lower extremities.
- Blood pressure increases due to compression.
- Foot pain and numbness due to adverse neural tension which causes pressure on the peroneal nerve which may lead to long-term nerve damage.
- Lumbar spine (low back) & nerves compressed in tilted posture.
- Sciatic nerve and piriformis muscle stressed.
- Femur (thighbone) abducted (rotated inward) which leads to lumpy looking thighs and spider veins.
"I personally think it’s great because it naturally forces me to sit up straight and use my core. Having a scoliosis, it helps keep my back straight. I can sit on it for hours at a time. The other great perk is that I can’t cross my legs when I’m sitting on it, but it does it in a very instinctive way that I do not even find myself trying to cross my legs! I like to alternate sitting on it and not to sit on it to give my core and back a break. But all in all, it’s a great product!" Laurane Chemenda
