Intelligent Support

Intelligent Support

LTC2 is a unique, patented synchronised tilting mechanism with two separate backrests. The lumbar and thoracic sections are connected yet they function independently of each other – just like the upper and lower areas of your spine.

Please facilitates task-intensive jobs which involve long periods of sitting, high levels of concentration and heavy computer. While some of us like to sit upright, others prefer a more relaxed, reclined position. Please recognises that everybody has their own way of working – and their own way of sitting. The chair
is designed to support diverse work styles, ensuring lasting comfort and optimum postural support.

Insights

Be in Motion
Motion Study

Be in Motion

Be in Motion

We spend 75.000 hours of our  life sitting in the office.
Employees need to be supported by highly  ergonomic chairs that support the body as it moves, promote movement and are comfortable for long periods of time. What’s more, they need intuitive adjustments to accommodate a wide range of users.

These key insights drove the development of the  Please chair.

Motion Study

Motion Study

We intensively study the ways people sit working individually – and how they move while seated – giving us a deep insight into the biomechanics of the human body in the seated position.

The spine doesn’t move as a single unit.

As you change posture, the upper and lower regions  of the spine move independently, not as a single unit. When the top of the spine leans backward, the  bottom arches forward.

EACH INDIVIDUAL SPINAL MOTION IS UNIQUE.

Each of us has unique spinal motion, a ‘spine print’  that is as individual as a fingerprint, and changes as our posture varies throughout the day.

THE UPPER AND LOWER BACK REQUIRE  DIFFERENT AMOUNTS AND KINDS OF SUPPORT.

Our need for upper back support increases when we  recline, but our lower spine requirements remain more or  less the same.
