General Details

Extra product information

COLOURS: The chair is available in a range of fabrics including environmentally recycled fabrics.

BASE: The standard Therapod Contemporary Office Chair has a 6-star Nylon base. The Therapod 24/7 (Heavy Duty) model has a 5-star heavy duty polished aluminium base.

SEAT: Contoured foam designed to stabilise the pelvis and evenly distribute pressure. The seat frame is constructed of reinforced timber.

BACKREST: The Therapod Backrest System targets key areas of the back: Strap 1 is for the upper back and provides thoracic support; Strap 2 and 3 are for the mid back and offer lumbar support; Strap 4 is for the lower back and provides sacrum support.

Any or all of the straps can be adjusted to suit individual needs.
Step A: Test the chair to obtain a feel for the areas of your back that need support.
Step B: Unzip the chair back for access to the straps.
Step C: To adjust tension, pull each strap outward and then across to secure in place. Support increases by the degree of each strap`s tension.
Step D: Zip up the chair back and commence using the chair.

Backrest is height adjustable. Place hands at the base of the backrest and pull upwards. There are nine incremental positions at which the height can be set. At the tenth position, the backrest can be lowered back to the starting position.

ARMRESTS: Table length height adjustable armrests

BASE: Five star heavy-duty polished aluminium base.

FEATURES: The "synchro" mechanism provides a syncronised action that responds to the user`s movement automatically. The back and seat move in a 2:1 degree synchronised ratio with "zero back separation" which allows the chair and user to change position while maintaining the support in the lumbar region of the backrest. Also has a knee tilt function that helps keep the user`s feet always on the ground during varied positions. The lever on the right of the seat operates the synchro mechanism. Turning the lever will allow synchro movement, another turn will lock the seat and backrest into the desired position. The lever on the left of the seat controls the tension of the synchro mechanism. Turning the lever will increase the tension.

The chair has a special double cylinder gas lift making it suitable for bariatric users and heavy use.

MECHANISM: There is a choice of two mechanisms:

1. The Premium Synchro Mechanism - which ensures the lumbar region remains correctly supported as the chair moves through all positions from forward tilt to recline. The seat and backrest movement occurs in a set ratio (1:1.9). This mechanism also ensures the feet remain on the floor at various positions of recline. Suitable for 24 hour usage 7 days per week.

2. Ergo Mechanism - the seat and backrest position also moves in a set ratio to each other but is not dynamic moving with the user - the position needs to be locked in by a lever.
