Title
(EN) PIECE OF FURNITURE WITH A BACK FOR ASSUMING A KNEELING POSITION
(FR) MEUBLE DE POSTURE AGENOUILLEE, AVEC DOSSIER
Abstract
(EN)
Piece of furniture for assuming a kneeling position, affording an alternative rest position to the seated position. The body is supported from the head to the upper thigh by a large back (2) inclined at approximately 60° for extending the front muscles and aligning the spine with the pelvis and the thighs so as to relieve pressure on the intervertebral disks. The knees rest on a padded support. The piece of furniture consists of a knee support (19), a back (2) with a vertically adjustable apron (4), whose load-bearing strength can also be adjusted, for supporting the lumbar region, so that the piece of furniture can be adjusted to the height and morphology of each person. The piece of furniture does not include a proper seat; arm rests and a rocking chair type mechanism can also be fitted.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un meuble de posture agenouillée proposant une position de repos alternative à la position assise. Le corps de la tête au haut de cuisses, est soutenu par un ample dossier (2) incliné à environ 60° permettant une élongation modérée de la musculature antérieure et un alignement de la colonne vertébrale avec le bassin et les cuisses soulageant les disques intervertébraux. Les genoux reposent sur un appui rembourré. Le meuble est constitué d'un appui pour les genoux (1), d'un dossier (2) muni d'une ceinture (4) de soutien des lombes, réglable en hauteur et en intensité, de manière à adapter le modèle à la taille et à la morphologie de chaque individu. Il ne comporte pas d'assise proprement dite et peut être muni d'accoudoirs et d'un système de balancement type 'rocking-chair' (3).
