to architects

For New offices ‘Coolness’ is the word to  excite media interest for both the company and the Architect/Designer.   Most firms aspire to project this cutting edge image.    A 2T chair, or the derived 4M workstation, answers this exactly and in addition reduces LBP and increases productivity by lessened morbidity and stress. ( Also see  ☛ Ergonomics and office stress.→ )

To office managersOffice managers should consult this blog as a resource.   It allows an alternative view to the usual hype, often laughably misguided, from manufacturers,


To remediationBackache & chairs.   A number of systems are described.  Spinal bio-mechanics dictates that prolonged sitting should be performed in a reclined position with frequent change of posture.  For a full remediation  a number of requirements are essential.   To be effective these are detailed in the 2 Tilt (2T) concept.
