Abstract

A dynamic sitting device includes a seat 20, a means for supporting the seat 30, and a novel floor-contacting element 40. Said novel floor-contacting element includes an outside edge 60 and a point 50. Said outside edge is circumferential to said point, and is positioned approximately perpendicular to said means for supporting seat. Said point is positioned near the center of said floor-contacting element and sits a short distance below a plane defined by said outside edge. A user can either balance the sitting device on said point in order to rock and spin, or rest the device on both said point and said outside edge in order to rest or to roll in a circular fashion. This invention promotes active sitting through the function of said floor-contacting element. The invention allows for both a dynamic sitting position that allows the body to be involved in maintaining balance and posture, and also a position of lesser activity and bodily involvement.

Description

    DESCRIPTION OF PRIOR ART
  • Sitting in common chairs for extended periods results in various injuries to the back or neck. Most health-promoting or ergonomic chairs attempt to remedy this problem by achieving an improved sitting position, either through adjustability or a special sitting surface. However, it has been shown that no static sitting position is healthy if maintained for extended periods. This invention seeks to provide people infinite variability in sitting positions as well as the ability to move dynamically and naturally between different positions while remaining seated. Active or movement-promoting chairs are common in the art, but each example has certain drawbacks and lacks certain benefits when compared with this invention. The following paragraphs are a summary of the art: [0001]
  • A. Multiple Rocker Elements [0002]
  • U.S. Pat. No. 2,923,345 (Strauss, Alvin K.) is a multi-directional rocking chair. The chair allows movement along six rocker elements that radiate out from a central point. Any movement allowed by this chair would be limited to the three axes defined by the rocker elements, so infinite variability of position is not possible. Also, movement between the three axes would not be smooth and natural Finally, the chair is so large as to be impractical for use in any conventional setting. [0003]
  • B. Mechanical Means of Movement [0004]
  • There have been several patented movement-promoting sitting devices that allow movement through the action of mechanical joints within the seat or support. Examples are European patent # 0 161 062 (Takizawa, Kiyoshi), U.S. Pat. No. 5,590,930 (Glockl, Josef), and U.S. Pat. No. 5,630,648 (Allard, Peter B. et. al.). The seats of these chairs pivot, slide, or rotate to allow movement between different sitting positions. However, this movement is so loose and uncontrolled that a spring damper or boundary ring is required to provide stability in most of the examples. The movement allowed would likely be unnatural due to this need to artificially limit movement. These devices are mechanically complex and therefore would be expensive to produce and maintain, and would be susceptible to failure. [0005]
  • C. Dish-Shaped Base [0006]
  • The best examples of active sitting devices are those with a parabolic or dish-shaped base. Examples are Belgian patent #561720 (Rosenkaimer), German patent # 48348 (Neuerburg, M.), U.S. Pat. No. 4,025,107 (Chippa, Charles), and U.S. Pat. No. 5,887,944 (Boost, Julie Ann). These devices allow infinite movement while being very simple in function. However, the movement provided by these devices is not differentiable into separate modes. Only a very loose type of movement is provided, without a more stable position where movement is limited. Because of this problem, their use would be limited to special circumstances allowing a high level of activity. [0007]
  • OBJECTS AND ADVANTAGES
  • Through the introduction of a novel floor-contacting element and a seat position that allow more activity, this invention solves the problems that are present in existing examples of movement-promoting chairs and introduces certain benefits that are not currently available within the art. Accordingly, several objects and advantages of this invention are: [0008]
  • 1. infinite variability of positioning [0009]
  • 2. a seat position that allows a relatively open angle between the user's thigh and trunk as compared to conventional right-angle seating [0010]
  • 3. smooth and natural movement between different positions [0011]
  • 4. a differentiation between active and stable seating positions [0012]
  • 5. size that is consistent with standard seating devices [0013]
  • 6. mechanical simplicity [0014]
  • Due to these objects and advantages, the invention allows omni-directional, infinitely variable movement as well as maintenance of the lumbar curve, so that the user can sit upright more easily and be more active while sitting. At the same time, the invention allows the user the option of enough stability for prolonged use in different settings. In addition, the invention would be durable and low cost, allowing for widespread application. Further objects and advantages of this invention will become apparent from a consideration of the drawings and ensuing description. [0015]
  • SUMMARY
  • As has been stated in the above discussion of objects and advantages, this invention is a novel and useful device that promotes active sitting, Through the function of a specially designed floor-contacting element or base, the invention allows for an infinitely variable dynamic sitting position, while also providing differentiation between positions of activity and stability. This combination of features is not currently available from any example within in the art. In addition, this invention provides the above benefits while maintaining mechanical simplicity, rendering it very practical for production and widespread use [0016]
