With so much time spent in front of a computer or hunched over work desk sitting in poorly designed chair, you will definitely have muscle tension and pain at the end of day. Zero-gravity beanbags or recliners or chairs can help you in this situation.
Zero-G original concept
What really is Zero Gravity or Zero-G? It is a reclining feature of a chair or beanbag resembling posture that astronauts need to employ during lift-off, when on space mission. As the astronauts endure sudden intense increase in gravity when they escape the gravitational pull of earth, it is important for them to position their body in a way to handle the stress increase.
Reclining position helps to distribute stress uniformly across the astronaut’s body. Therefore, astronauts sit in reclined configured chair during launch of the space shuttle.
