With the start of another new school year just around the corner, the value of an ergonomically correct chair is something that parents and teachers should keep in mind
Bowling Green, OH (PRWEB) August 6, 2007
BioFit Engineered Products, a worldwide provider of ergonomic seating solutions, has put a new spin on customized seating with BuildMyChair.com -- the first eCommerce website to make consumers active participants in chair design, rather than being passive shoppers. The difference allows hobbyists to create their own upholstery, component and color combinations, instead of selecting from pre-fabricated options.
Using an online tool called a "chair configurator," users can design durable, ergonomically correct chairs to meet individual needs and tastes, while watching the entire assembly process right on their computer screens. By accessing the convenient pull-down menus, changes can be made real-time, putting the final look, function and shape of the product completely in the hands of the purchasers themselves.
Perhaps more importantly, this advantage can make all the difference in terms of personalized ergonomics. Studies show ergonomically correct chairs help prevent lower back problems and repetitive motion injuries associated with sitting for extended periods of time. In addition, they assist in alleviating poor posture consequences such as premature fatigue and lapses in concentration. To Ed Metzger, president of BioFit, these considerations should not be taken lightly, particularly for students at every level.
"With the start of another new school year just around the corner, the value of an ergonomically correct chair is something that parents and teachers should keep in mind," Metzger said. "After all, it stands to reason that greater seating support and comfort translates into longer, more effective study patterns. BuildMyChair.com makes it possible.
"With just a few clicks of the mouse, people can design their chairs, proceed to checkout and arrange for shipping, free of charge, within five days of ordering. It's a great way to give long-lasting, one-of-a-kind gifts for 'back-to-school' or any other occasion. Once users try it for themselves, they'll be hooked." Metzger stated.
Gift cards are also available on BuildMyChair.com, enabling users to share the experience of building chairs with family, friends or business associates. Even better, like all products manufactured by BioFit, every BuildMyChair.com chair is backed by a 13-year, 24/7 warranty - the best in the seating industry.
