Milagon - Ergonomic Chairs Page 1

Ergonomic Basics

Milagon chairs facilitate dynamic sitting due to their ergonomic design. Frequently changing the sitting position reduces one-sided and unhealthy strain on the muscles and spinal column. The spinal column takes on it’s natural S-shape and spine and muscles relax. This improves blood circulation and nutrient supply. The spinal column can regenerate, and concentration and efficiency increase.

Chair Adjustments

BACKREST TILT
Contact pressure (variable) -10º to 10º. The backrest is mounted in a pendulum bearing and offers permanent and variable backrest contact pressure. Following the movements of the upper body, it can be adjusted according to weight. Therefore, the spine is effectively protected and the ergonomically required "dynamic sitting" is supported. The backrest can also be locked at any tilting angle.

HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
For the Backrest & Seat. Smooth height adjustment is accomplished by means of a safety gas pressure spring. The height and the tilting angle of the backrest can be infinitely adjusted by using the bracket.

SEAT TILT
-4º to 10º. The backrest can also be locked at any tilting angle. The variable seat cushion tilting angle of -4º to +10º allows the optimum body opening angle of at least 90º to be retained in any working position. Compressive stress in the thigh area is reduced and uniform blood circulation is provided.

AN ERGONOMIC WORKPLACE
Improper seating can have a detrimental effect on a worker's health and motivation. It also reduces productivity, leads to a higher than average probability of industrial accidents and reduces product quality. Milagon WORKSEATS® provide for precise adjustment of seat tilt, seat height and back support. This gives each worker the ability to adjust the seat to their body posture, thus, minimizing physical strain and injuries. All adjustment options can be executed while the operator is seated. Milagon offers a wide variety of options and accessories to fit any industrial environment such as upholstered seats, polyurethane seats, wood seats, swivel base, castors, arm rests, step rails and foot rests. WORKSEATS® come in a variety of designs and constructions and can be engineered to the user's specifications.

Seating Posture
Seating Positions

FORWARD POSITION
Characteristic features

  • The back is bowed or in a stiff sitting position ­ pushed forward.
  • The center of gravity of the upper body is in front of the ilia.
  • With the thighs held virtually horizontal, the hip angle, i.e. the sitting angle, is smaller than 90º.
  • The pressure within the abdominal area is raised
  • Negative influence on the blood-flow return through the abdominal area.
  • The muscles become statically flexed.

If the muscles are not straightened within a short period of time, the upper body searches support through the arms which are on the work surface. The center of balance returns to achieve a relative relaxing of the muscles.
In the forward sitting position, the shoulder and neck muscles have more strain as opposed to the middle or rear positions.

STRAIGHT POSITION
Characteristic features

  • The center of gravity lies in the area of the ilia.
  • In general, this is a statically balanced sitting position. The curve of the spine from lumbar to neck is relatively small, and the muscles can relax. Breathing is deepened (= Asian relaxing position).

In every form of work, bodily movement is necessary which impairs the center of balance. In order to retrieve the center of balance, the muscles must be put under tension. These are the reasons why the middle sitting position is not of much importance when discussing working positions.

REAR POSITION
Characteristic features

  • Without a backrest, the pelvis is twisted back on the seating area.
  • The open hip angle, related to the pelvic position, is greater than 90º.
  • Depending on the position of the sacrum, there are differences in the curve of the spine.

The stronger the curve of the dorsal vertebra, the more adjustment must be made through the neck. "Stretching" of the spine is possible, but only with a lumbar support (back muscles are relaxed).

Brio Series
Brio Chair Features
  • Self skinning polyurethane seating is chemical resistant and tough enough to withstand harsh industrial environments.
  • Straight or S-shaped backrest bar.
  • Seat insert is top grade, 7-ply plywood cushion finished with an injected molded polyurethane.

These are mounted to a cast aluminum mechanism providing a -4 to +10 degree tilt of the seat and a 10 degree + or - angle of the backrest with spring-tensioned clutch mechanism. This self-skinning polyurethane is an ideal material for those multi-shift environments where hygiene is a concern.

  • Industrial strength modular construction
  • Ergonomically designed
  • Separate seat tilt and backrest adjustments
  • Backrest height adjustment
