Backcare armchair made to measure
- Reference: DOS-MIHAUT-NAT
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
What are the advantages of a custom-made chair?
Made to measure, this backcare chair offers
. a seat height and depth which, by harmoniously distributing the support pressures, improves blood circulation; this avoids pain felt in the buttocks, due to poor vascularisation in relation to the ischiums.
. a seating depth that allows you to sit at the bottom of the chair, with your back resting against the backrest; the column thus retains its natural curvature
. the seat does not rest against the calf so that venous return is not hindered.
. a seat angle of 12° reinforces these benefits by making it easier for the back to rest against the backrest and reducing pressure on the seat.
The choice of foam
The Bultex foams used for seat and back cushions have a high resilience, which means that they retain their original properties for a long time. Their relatively low thickness, compared to a traditional lounge chair, makes it easier to get up and avoids the hammock effect. The high density foam of 38 Kg/m3 makes the armchair comfortable for hours on end.
It can be stored flat in its packaging.
The structure of the armchair consists of 4 panels in Valchromat with slots: they can be assembled without tools. The seat can be quickly disassembled for transport or stored in a reduced volume.
The Valchromat panels are coloured in the mass: if a panel is damaged on its surface it can be sanded to recover 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
Angle of the seat 12°, angle of the backrest is 22.5°
MDF panels from Corrèze made with wood from French forests. The panels are protected by a natural hard oil (pearl effect) which gives a chocolate tint to the panels.
PERLOleo Classic natural hard oil for indoor use. The oil nourishes the wood and has a water-repellent effect. It consists of vegetable oils, natural additives and oil derivatives.
Made in France from panels made of French wood. 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).
The cushions are removable. The panels can be cleaned with a cloth soaked in liquid soap.
