We’ve all heard that sitting isn’t good for our health. It puts extra pressure on your spine, strains your shoulders and neck, and can lead to muscle degeneration. Our bodies are designed for regular movement and sitting for extended periods of time is just unnatural. Yet in today’s business and leisure pursuits, prolonged sitting is unavoidable and over time, it can become not just uncomfortable, but painful.
This is why AirHawk® has produced a variety of seat cushions made with their patented air cell technology, which allows the user to virtually float on air while in a seated position. The AirHawk cushion helps:
- Equalize forces over weight bearing areas
- Increase blood flow
- Relieve pressure points
- Absorb vibration and shock (especially good for long distance rides)
- Reduce fatigue, numbness and the overall health risks prolonged sitting
AirHawk® uses clinically tested air cell technology that has been used in medical applications for over 35 years to reduce tissue pressure and improve comfort. The AirHawk cushion is designed to match your body shape and is contoured to deliver the optimum in comfortable seating, no matter where you use it.
What does the AirHawk® cushion look and feel like?
The AirHawk® cushion comes in two components:
- A cover with a sleek appearance that zips open to reveal the cushion insert.
- The removable, inflatable air pad.
The cover is constructed with a breathable spandex and spacer mesh that allow air to flow through the seat. The air flow keeps you cool and comfortable when sitting for long periods of time. The removable, inflatable air pad is made with AirHawk® patented air cell technology, which works better with your body than gel or memory foam.
What does this mean for long-distance drivers and those that are required to sit for long periods of time?
From the person riding their office chair 12 hours a day to the farmer putting in long hours on the tractor, AirHawk® can help increase your overall comfort and the health of your hips and spine. For many, this means noticeable relief from stiffness, numbness, leg cramps, and an overall feeling of more energy. With an AirHawk® cushion you can sit for longer with less negative side effects. It permits better circulation throughout your body, which is not only good for your heart, but promotes an overall feeling of more energy. And in the long term, your hips, back, neck and joints will feel less pressure, which can have a significantly positive impact on your body over time.
