Posture Exercises

These six simple exercises can help you to improve your posture and stretch your muscles after a long day in front of your computer.

Stand up and take a walk any time you can, even if it’s just to talk on the phone. While the KomfortChair has been superbly designed, nothing competes with a simple ten-minute walk.

Head Presses
Sit with your back well-supported on your KomfortChair. Keep your chin level with the floor and move your head straight back as far as possible. Do not turn your chin or forehead. Hold your head in this position for three seconds, then relax into your normal posture for a second or two. Repeat this exercise five times several times a day.

Wrist And Ankle Rolls
Roll your ankles and wrists regularly clockwise and anti-clockwise. This helps to keep your blood circulation regular and prevents “pins and needles”.

To stretch your calves while sitting, lift your legs and push your heels forward before setting them down. Repeat until your legs are comfortably tired then again about ten minutes later, and continue for about an hour. This exercise will stretch your calves and help prevent blood clots from developing in your legs, a common problem among middle-aged computer users.

Torso Stretch
Stand tall with your back straight, abs engaged, head lifted, and feet a hip-distance apart. Clasp your hands together then slowly raise them above your head towards the ceiling. Reach as high as you can while inhaling deeply and hold for 20-30 seconds. Bring your hands down slowly while letting out your breath. Repeat twice.

Shoulder Rolls
Stand or sit in a comfortable position. As you inhale, raise your shoulders towards your ears and roll them backward. As you exhale, pull your shoulders down. Repeat five to ten times.
