So intelligent, sitting in it actually helps you think
With Embody, designers Bill Stumpf and Jeff Weber set out to solve the problem of the lack of physical harmony between people and their technology. They worked with more than 30 physicians and PhDs in the fields of biomechanics, vision, physical therapy, and ergonomics who contributed their expertise to help guide the development of this office chair.
As a result, you feel Embody’s responsive ergonomics the moment you sit down—like you are floating, yet perfectly balanced. The seat distributes your weight evenly while supporting your body’s micro-movements. The narrow backrest allows you to move freely and naturally as it automatically adjusts to support a full range of seated postures. By reducing seated pressure and encouraging freedom of movement, Embody allows blood and oxygen to flow more freely, which helps keep you focused.
"Sitting is bad for you. Embody is good for you."Bill Stumpf and Jeff Weber View Design Story
Less Pressure, More Cool
A combination of support layers in Embody’s seat work together to reduce seated pressure. These layers were designed to allow for airflow, keeping you cool and comfortable as you sit.
As Agile as You Are
Embody encourages movement, keeping your body and brain limber all day, and helping you stay focused and relaxed at the same time. That’s good, because movement promotes blood and oxygen flow, which keeps the brain more focused.
Embody encourages the most healthful posture for computer users—a working recline, which reduces spine compression and even slows fluid loss from discs. The Backfit adjustment positions the backrest in line with your spine's natural curve, from your sacrum to lumbar and upper thoracic. When you move in this office chair, your head remains properly aligned to your computer display.
Embody's tilt technology maintains your back in a fixed position relative to the seat, encouraging your body to move naturally into the most positive seated postures while keeping your pelvis stable.
Three Zones of Support
The tilt technology of the Embody chair also provides three zones of support—for your thighs, sacrum/sitting bones, and thorax. The pelvis remains stable with no rearward rotation. Without a rigid frame and with edges that flex, Embody prevents uncomfortable pressure on your legs and arms.
Conforms to You—Automatically
A dynamic matrix of pixels creates seat and back surfaces that automatically conform to your every movement and distribute your weight evenly. One chair size fits every body because Embody automatically adapts to the wide variation in the sizes, shapes, postures, and spinal curves of different people.
