School Chairs Petition

 

Our petition to European Committee of Standardisation (CEN)

STAT leads campaign to ban school chairs ‘bad’ for children’s backs.

To sign our petition click here.

STAT is calling for changes to the European standard which currently allows a school chair to slope backwards by five degrees. Backward sloping chairs encourage children to adopt poor posture which health experts say increases the risk of back pain among children during their school years and, crucially, later in life.

The Alexander Technique has improved my posture so I’m more upright and seeing the top of buildings I’d never noticed for 20 years. It’s also helped with lower back pain and tightness in my upper back and neck. During the 6 months I’ve been learning the Technique I’ve had virtually no football injuries, and friends say I look younger. This has made a radical difference.
