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.

Back problems
Education and Children

At about the age of 45, I began to experience severe pain in both of my knees. I was told I had damaged the cartilage, initially caused by the use of a kicking strap on a sailing dinghy, and made worse by many years of beagling, and to stop beagling or risk ending up in a wheelchair. A few years later a friend suggested the Alexander Technique. At first I was very sceptical, but had also reached the stage where I was ready to try virtually any means to solve the problem. A few weeks after my first lesson, I had gone out beagling, but only walking.
