Not every chair reduces neck pain, won’t tip over, is built of the strongest materials, and looks good.

But there is one.

The way children and students sit in the classroom has long been one of debate, not least because studies reported in 2013 showed that the vast majority of school children suffer from back and/or neck pain as a result of sitting in school chairs.

There is clearly a need for chairs that enhance wellbeing, comfort, and concentration. They also have to be durable and able to withstand even the toughest of environments.

One point often overlooked, particularly within the SEN sector, is the need to design furniture that inspires a positive environment. What is needed is not a chair which looks like a relic from a 1960s asylum but a chair fit for the most contemporary of environments such as a high-end design office. This fresh approach to learning spaces has an immediate impact on the expectations of all stakeholders within a school.

This is why we have worked so incredibly hard to create the Max 2 chair. It reduces the incidence of back and neck pain, it will not rock back, and is built of the sort of materials that will ensure a long life (they come with a ten year guarantee).

Plus, the pupils and students love the look and style.

Of course, there are other positives as well, such as the zero environmental impact of the chairs (they are 100% recyclable) and delivery in just 7-10 days from order.  You can see the chairs (and all the colour options) and find out more here along with details on how to buy.
