My son was having a lot of pain in his neck and low back when he worked sitting at a desk or standing at a standup desk. He bought an expensive new ergonomic chair to sit at a desk, and he bought the latest standup desk. He continued to have neck and low back pain when he used both his new ergonomic chair or new standup desk. My son was very frustrated, so I decided to “look into it.” There is a lot of research out there about the effects of sitting and standing on the neck and low back. Peer reviewed and published research shows that both sitting at a desk and standing at a standup desk add pressure in the low back and force to the neck compared to a supported and Unloaded body. Pressure in the low back and force to the neck can cause pain.
I set out to build a work station for my son that would relieve his pain and promote work that was traditionally done while sitting at a desk or standing at a standup desk. I based this product on existing research plus input received from ergonomic specialists, physical therapists and other healthcare professionals. The design of this work station totally supported the user in an ergonomic position in order to reduce force to the neck, pressure in the low back and reduce strain and stress to the hips, legs, knees and feet. After several prototypes, I finally had the Procliner. This was a work station that greatly improved comfort and promoted work that was traditionally done while sitting at a desk or standing at a standup desk.
Initial designs of the Procliner had several limitations: challenging to assemble and to set for the unique physiology of the user, strict height and weight limitations, and somewhat expensive. After seeing the benefits of the initial Procliner for my son, my next challenge was to build an efficient and effective Procliner to help others. Finally, there is a Procliner that is easy to assemble, easy to use, has a user height limitation of approximately 6’6” tall, has a user weight limitation of 250 pounds (we can certainly build a custom Procliner for heavier individuals), and is less expensive than many ergonomic chairs, traditional desks and standup desks.
The Procliner is based on existing published research data. I read many research articles on ergonomics and physiology, and I listened to input from ergonomic specialists and test subjects. Then, I built a work station that can reduce forces, pressures, strains and stresses to the body, and improves comfort while you work. I was able to help my son, and for that I am thankful. The Procliner can help improve your
comfort too. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call.
PS I have included several photos showing the development of the Procliner.
