STUDY DESIGN The seat and back contact force, pressure distribution, lumbar lordosis, and low back muscle activities associated with a new seat design with adjustable ischial support and backrest were investigated using kinematic, kinetic, electromyographic, and radiographic measurements. OBJECTIVES To investigate the biomechanical effects of adjusting ischial and backrest supports during sitting. SUMMARY OF THE BACKGROUND DATA Sitting may induce posterior rotation of the pelvis, reduction… CONTINUE READING
