The Chair that Could Save Your Life - Huge Hit at 100% Design

100% Design Earls Court
Simon Freedman an osteopath and inventor was seeing more and more people whose problems are caused by prolonged sitting, or by the lack of a suitable chair. He has been creating a seat that allows the spine and pelvis to achieve that same posture in sitting when standing.

Exhibiting at the 100% Design Show in Earls Court has caused  huge interest for this unique chair. The next steps being the launch on kickstarter on the 27th of September.

Working with Simon for over 2 years JNDC has been using computer aided design (CAD) software to assist in the prototype development process. The design has seen several key areas change over the project, to simplify the parts and promote the best seating position.

From CAD structural analysis was undertaken to check the seat flexed and behaved in the desired way. Prototyping has been involved and intense, utilising methods such as CNC machining right the way through to sand casting and silicon moulding.

Dean Carran Operation Director at JNDC said: 'It is a pleasure working with Simon to develop his ideas, the project is going from strength to strength and I can see the chair as a must for environments where prolonged sitting occurs'. 

The latest prototype has had lots of fantastic feedback, JNDC are looking forward to working on the next exciting stage of the project.
