This optional extra is often suggested for those suffering a herniated disc. A ‘ridge’ of S’port foam is built up, during the hand-crafting of the chair back.
The Thoracic S’port ridge encourages the sitter to maintain the natural curve of the spine. By offering more support to the thoracic region, it helps alleviate pressure on the herniated disc.
An additional ergonomic feature is that the ‘ridge’ persuades the user to roll the shoulders back and open the chest cavity. This reduces pressure where the main nerve passes through the shoulders and so reduces discomfort.
The S’port ridge automatically includes a whole back upholstered in memory foam so giving greater comfort all around.
