Why we often slide towards sleeping in our recliners

More Aussies are investing in mobility aids and recliner chairs but are they worthwhile or simply a mancave necessity?

In this second instalment of our three-part-series, we explain why a mobility lift recliner chair from Superior Lifestyle is your next best health investment.

You may recall in our first blog of this series, we presented and analysed a detailed report from 2018 by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, it was estimated that around 16% of the population suffer from varying degrees of back pain.

We can only assume this number is steadily increasing as more generations develop what's known as "text-neck" and we identified the collosal impact this problem is having on our productivity as a nation.

The case for preventative measures that promote good posture day and night is clearer than ever and in this post, we will exactly explain how our lift recliner chairs have helped others overcome common barriers to a good night's sleep.


The Origins of "Zero-Gravity Positioning"

In order to land on the moon, NASA's top space engineers and scientists carried out a substantial volume of research into the inner workings of the human body.

One of their critical discoveries was the body's behaviour and response to a lack of gravitational pull. In this environment, the body assumes a natural position that minimises the strain on our muscles and organs.

NASA used this information to calculate and design a reclined position in its space shuttles that would mitigate the effects of increased G-force during lift off.

Although the mathematics appear overcomplicated, the science can be reduced to one simple equation: zero gravity positioning + pressure relief = pure comfort.

This critical discovery has continued to inform engineers in multiple disciplines across the globe from automobiles and aeroplanes to office chairs, helmets, shoes and of course, bed bases and lift recliner chairs.

For many, including our customers, zero gravity positioning has made a real difference by raising the legs above the heart to achieve a sensation of weightlessness.

In fact, it's no longer a secret and the benefits it delivers for health conditions such as venous swelling, poor blood circulation, fluid retention, aches and pains and pressure sores are documented and well research.

That's why we are so passionate about what we do. We are on a mission to improve Australia's sleep deficit by making a Superior Lifestyle accessible for anyone.

In our final post of this series, we take a deeper dive into the array of benefits offered by our lift recliner chairs and the specific functions that may help improve your overall health and well-being.
