LiveLumbar Technology

LiveLumbar™ Technology

An adjustable LiveLumbar™ zone flexes with every move for consistent ergonomic support for lower back.

The enveloping backrest and textured, refined look of Amia are immediately inviting. And as soon as you sit down in the robust, yet comfortable Amia office chair, you know you’ve found something special. Both the LiveLumbar™ support and the flexible seat edge angle adjust automatically to your body shape.

LiveLumbar Height

LiveLumbar Height

The Amia chair is an ergonomic office chair.

  • It slides up or down for custom support that flexes with your back.
  • The back lock locks the backrest in an upright position and unlocks allowing for full-range motion
  • Height, depth, width and pivot arms telescope in and out, move forward and back, pivot, and adjust up and down, so you can find a natural position that comfortably supports the wrists, forearms, shoulders and neck.

As a visitor chair, Northside gives a distinguished touch to a manager desk. The combination of high quality fabric with stitching on the seat and backrest gives an elegant and comfortable, welcoming environment, the perfect setting for formal meetings.

Flexible Seat Edge

Flexible Seat Edge

Overview

Overview

Motion Study

At Steelcase, we constantly invest in user research as part of our product design process. Amia was inspired by three key discoveries revealed in a unique global medical study we conducted over four years with 732 users.

The Spine

The Spine

Since the spine does not move as a single unit, a chair’s backrest should change shape to support the independent movements of a person’s upper and lower back when he/she changes posture.

Spinal Motion

Since each individual’s spinal motion is unique, a chair’s backrest should mimic each individual’s unique spinal motion as he/she changes posture.

Die Rückenlehne mit integrierter LiveLumbar™-Technologie erlaubt es, die Lumbalstütze nach oben oder unten zu verschieben. Die Flexoren sorgen für komfortablen Halt, indem sie sich den Veränderungen der Körperhaltung perfekt anpassen.

Upper + Lower Back

Upper + Lower Back

The upper and lower back regions require different amounts and different kinds of support.

Amia’s Solution

The lumbar and thoracic areas are differently supported:

  • Amia’s LiveLumbar™ support is designed to sense movement in your back and self-adjust to provide optimal support.
  • The tilt tension gives support to the higher part of the backrest
