Quality is priority.
We have spent an immense amount of time ensuring the quality of our chairs are top-notch and true to customers by getting them BIFMA certified. The chairs go through many tests, such as;
Back Durability test,
Sit Durability test,
Foam Fatigue test,
Mechanism Tilting test,
Mesh Durability test,
Base Static test,
Castor Durability test,
all of which the Z-365 has passed easily. To further provide our customers with greater assurance, we put the chairs through similar tests with a 10% increase in intensity in-house.

Health is Wealth.
A bad chair can harm your body. It is paramount to take care of your health to prevent problems from appearing at a later stage. A common health problem that may occur is the Upper Crossed Syndrome (USC)
“Upper Crossed Syndrome refers to a particular configuration of overlapping overactive and under-active muscle groups in the neck, chest and shoulders.” – which was stated on Medical News Today article on upper crossed syndrome.
In layman terms, it would mean that there is an excessive strain on the neck, shoulder and back due to sitting with a wrong posture for a long period of time, resulting in the muscles deforming. This usually happens to working adults who spend most of their time sitting down doing work in the office or even those who live a sedentary life. Based on Medical News Today article on upper crossed syndrome, symptoms would be neck pain, headaches, stiffness in the upper back, etc.
After prolonged periods, you may start to realise that your head is stuck in a forward position, and there is an outward curvature of your back.

On average, we spend about 8 hours of our day at work (equivalent to an average time spent sleeping), with the majority of the time sitting on a chair. Since we are willing to splurge on getting the best bed, we should also be willing to splurge on getting a good chair.
We all know that prevention is better than cure, so spending a little more on a chair in the ZOOM series will save you much more money than incurring medical expenses.
Sitting with proper posture can prevent such stresses of muscles from happening. And in order to help your body adapt to better postures, a good chair that can cater to your needs is imperative.
With ZOOM series, there are many essential features that can help to maintain the posture you need for a better health.
