Choosing a sofa or dining room chair can be a difficult decision as you want the best value in terms of comfort, style, and durability. However, your level of detail should not end there, paying close attention to your seat cushioning can have some health benefits. When seated a person’s weight is supported by their buttocks and thighs. Sitting even for a short period with insufficient support can cause injury to your hips, back, and thighs. These risks are further increased if you suffer from an injury, obesity, reduced mobility, or any condition that affects blood supply.
