BodyBilt #2 seat

The most contoured and popular of BodyBilt's range of seats.

Category:

The BodyBilt #2 seat is the most contoured seat pan in the BodyBilt seat range. The U-shaped contouring follows the curve around the back of the seat, then extends outward to create leg troughs to the front of the chair.

Those leg troughs were designed into the chair to cradle the legs – and in that process, increases the surface area of contact with the legs. The greater amount of contact area you have with the legs and buttocks, the greater area bearing the weight of the body against the chair thus effectively lowering seated pressure on that part of the body. Lower seated pressure typically translates to greater comfort.

Ergonomic Features

  • Integrated Ish dish –  a set of strategically placed spacings. This creates comfort and support without creating a pressure point.
  • The “Pommel” – the bump in the centre of the front of the seat creates a more even sitting seat posture to help align the hips.
  • The waterfall front seat edge – designed to reduce the risk of creating pressure points on the back of the upper legs.
  • U-shaped contouring and leg troughs – creates a greater amount of contact with the legs and buttocks, spreading the weight of the body more evenly and effectively lowering seated pressure
  • Front pommel – encourages the sitter to move back into the seat and take full advantage of the back support
  • Waterfall front- designed to reduce the risk of creating pressure points on the back of the upper legs
  • Ish Dish* – a combination of strategically placed spacings (at the right and left ischial tuberosity of the pelvis, and at the coccyx or tailbone) to create comfort and support without creating a pressure point – unique to BodyBilt designs. As with every BodyBilt seat, this model is made by hand, using traditional upholstery methods.
