Revolutionary Liquid/Solid Material From Bayer MaterialScience De-stresses Back Using Unique Three-Dimensional SupportPITTSBURGH, October 18, 2005—A new study conducted by internationally renowned neuromuscular researcher, Carlo J. De Luca, Ph.D., found that office chairs that incorporate a proprietary high-tech material into the seating structure were shown to reduce the activity of some back muscles by up to 28 percent.
“The significance of these results cannot be underestimated,” said Dr. De Luca, director, NeuroMuscular Research Center of Boston University, and president, Delsys Inc. in Boston, where the study was performed. “Many people may not realize that the act of sitting requires several back muscles to work to support the spine and the pelvis. Prolonging this sustained muscle activity can cause any number of problems including low-back pain.”
