Tailor-made light gray activity armchair, to eat, play or stand up easily whatever your size
- Reference: STANDUP-LGR
The width of the seat is equal to the width of your hips plus 2 to 5 cm. To measure it, sit on a flat surface, place two parallel blocks against your hips, measure the distance between them and add 2 to 5 cm.
To measure the depth of the seat, sit on a flat surface.
1. Measure the distance from the wall to the recess at the back of the knee.
2. Remove about 4 cm to get the seat depth measurement of the chair.
Correct measurement of the seat depth will result in better weight distribution over the entire seat, better blood circulation and therefore greater comfort.
It is important that the seat is not too deep so that it does not rest on the popliteal fossa at the back of the knee, which would hinder venous return.
To measure the height of the seat
1- Sit on a surface that is high enough so that your feet do not touch the floor.
1. Add books under the feet so that :
- the front of the thigh rests on the front of the seat (no hand should be able to pass through).
- the feet are no longer in the air
3. Measure the distance from the underside of the heel to the seat
If the seat is too high, the knees are up and the supports are more important at the bottom of the seat; the sitting position is quickly painful.
If it is too low, the feet are not on the floor and the user slides forward.
To measure the height of the backrest sit on a flat surface. You can choose between 3 types of backrest.
Classic backrest (Figure 1)
Pinch a pencil under the armpits and measure the height of the seat with the pencil.
Mid-high backrest (Figure 2)
Measure the height from the seat to the shoulder blades or base of the cervical vertebrae.
High backrest (Figure 3)
Measure the height from the seat to the rearmost part of the head.
Other dimensions and requests
It is easier to stand up from an activity chair
The seat is slightly tilted backwards; by putting your feet under the seat, grasping the front part of the armrests, you tilt your trunk forward and push slightly on your legs to get up. This gesture is greatly facilitated by the height of the seat, which is adapted to the user's morphology.
The armchair is made to measure to fit the end-user
Among the benefits of a custom-made chair :
. a tailor-made seat height and depth allow the blood circulation to be improved by harmoniously distributing the pressure of the seat; this avoids the pain felt in the buttocks, due to poor vascularisation of the ischium
. a tailor-made seat depth allows you to sit at the bottom of the chair, with your back resting against the backrest; the spine thus retains its natural curvature
. the seat does not rest against the calf so that venous return is not impeded
Resilient, firm and comfortable foams
The Bultex foams used for the seat and back cushions are highly resilient, which means that they retain their original properties for a long time. Their relative thinness, compared to a traditional lounge chair, makes it easier to get up and avoid the hammock effect. The seat foam has a high load-bearing capacity and density (38 kg/m3) to keep the chair comfortable for hours.
A light grey armchair easy to assemble and transport
The structure of the chair consists of 4 MDF panels * with slots: they can be assembled without tools. The chair can be quickly disassembled for transport or storage in a small space.
The MDF panels are stained in the mass: if a panel is damaged on its surface, it can be sanded down to its original colour.
High resilience Bultex firm foam with a density of 40 Kg/m3. Thickness 50 mm. Bultex is a high quality foam for a lasting support.
Bultex high resilience PU foam 30 Kg/m3 thickness 50 mm for a lasting support and comfort
The angle of the seat is 6° and the angle of the backrest to the vertical is 13.5°. It is easy to get up from this slightly sloping seat.
19 mm thick Valchromat panels, tinted with organic dyes. On the surface there are small pure wood fibres which have not absorbed the organic dyes.
3 layers of clear matt vitrifier - Ceramic Technology V33: high performance resin combined with ceramic microbeads, creating a shield and increasing strength by 40%.
Made in France from Valchromat panels made in Portugal. Precision cutting of the base to measure with a numerical control. Handcrafted finishing of the structure and cushions.
Delivery and assembly
Delivery flat-pack to reduce CO2 emission, in a wooden crate. The grooved panels can be assembled without tools (some accessories may require the use of a screwdriver for assembly).
Removable cover. Wash cushion and frame with mild detergent ( water and soap ).
