As noted ergonomic innovators within the seating sector, Status has recently added the Form range to its portfolio and in turn has now incorporated the notable ProBax technology into selected ranges for even greater medically proven benefits.

ProBax is a unique foam-based posture solution which dictates the pelvis and spine, and stimulates the optimum correct sitting position by realigning the spine and ensuring that the person’s weight is supported by the skeletal structure and the chair rather than the body’s muscles. Equally, blood flow and lung function are improved as is stress on the spine- and the overall effect improves comfort and efficiency by reducing fatigue and back and neck pains as well as reducing the risk of DVT. Visually, the user of a ProBax type of chair will clearly be seen to be upright rather than slumped.

Typical of the designs involved are the elegant high-tech Form X2 concept with its 3D knitted back and 5 year guarantee, and the famous Status Chiropod and Therapod models which feature multiple adjustment - and colour schemes –and encourage healthy people to sit properly whilst also greatly assisting those for example who are recovering from relevant surgery or who need non-standard seating.

ProBax can be seamlessly incorporated into most types of commercial chairs, and given that eighty percent of the western world experiences back problems at some time in their lives then the scope for reducing absenteeism and improving morale is truly awesome.
