“Sylphy” is the latest in adjustable swivel chairs. Able to conform to each employee’s body shape Sylphy provides superior comfort. Its “Back Curve Adjustment Mechanism” increases lumbar support, and improved backrest reclining allows for both rear and forward reclining. Forward reclining tilts the pelvis up to maintain the natural S-curve of the spine which reduces lower back strain. The seat with 3 different thicknesses of polyurethane fiber relieves pressure on the thighs while fully supporting the buttocks. By evenly distributing body pressure Sylphy limits the possibility of DVT.
