When you visit one of our 59 Comfort Stores or arrange a Home Visit, you will be in the caring hands of one of our skilled Comfort Specialists.

Our experienced staff have been trained by independent Occupational Therapist, Julie Jennings Dip COT HCPC, so they understand and can advise upon the importance of good posture and how it will benefit your overall comfort and wellbeing.

 

Poor posture, which stems from many root causes, can trigger a wide range of medical and lifestyle issues; from back, neck and shoulder pain, to increased stress and fatigue.

If left untreated, its strain on muscles and soft tissue can lead to long-term ill-health.

In order to help you find the best CleverComfort™ designed chair and sofa, we have developed a unique 7-Point Seating Assessment™.

Working with our Comfort Specialists to carefully assess your unique needs will ensure that each part of your body is properly supported, giving you unrivalled comfort.

Visit your local Comfort Store today or make an appointment with one of our Home Visit teams to learn more.

Bottom in the right spot

The starting point is to make sure your bottom fits snugly into the back of the seat. When your bottom touches the back of the chair, your lower back, shoulders and neck are supported correctly.

 

The right seat height

For the most comfortable chair, the seat needs to be at the correct height to support your legs and back. Your feet should be flat on the floor and your knee forms a right angle. Sitting and rising will become a lot easier in a chair that is fitted correctly.

Seat depth

The correct seat depth should see your calves gently touching the leg rest.

Getting the right width

For the correct width, make sure you can sit comfortably with your arms resting on the arm rests. Too small a gap puts pressure on your hips; too large and your shoulders aren’t supported, causing you to lean to one side.

Lumbar support

All backs are different, so make sure the curve in the chair follows and supports the curve of your back.

Keeping a level head

When the neck is supported correctly, the head is not forward or too high above the back of the chair.

Elbows to fingers

Your forearms, wrists and hands should be fully supported by the chair arms, so your shoulders are in their natural resting position.
