Scandex Announces New Podiatry Division

Swedish ergonomic chairs and stools in the U.S. and Canada, has recently launched a new Podiatry Division to cater to the unique seating requirements of podiatrists and their office staff.

Scandex is the top of the mind choice for podiatrists the world over, Podiatrists who require a chair (for themselves as well as their staff) with superb back/lumbar support to help minimize lower back problems and reduce the potential for musculoskeletal disorders turn to Scandex.

Scandex Swedish ergonomic chairs and stools are designed for proper seating so the lumbar area is supported and the spine maintains the proper “S” position. The most popular seating for podiatrists are the Bruno Ergonomic Office Chair, Series 300 and the Björn Ergonomic Saddle Stool, Series 400/600. Both automatically seat a podiatrist in a correct posture. The Bjorn Saddle Stool also positions a podiatrist nearer to the patient which reduces overall strain on the back, shoulders and neck muscles. The Björn Ergonomic Saddle Stool, Series 400/600 is recommended if space is tight. Arm supports are available options of each of these models.

“A poor body position is largely responsible for the ill effects of prolonged sitting. Poor body positions can also originate from job design that requires employees to sit uninterrupted for longer than one hour. The duration of sitting, along with the shape of the body in a sitting position is the most critical risk factor,” explained Sven Emilsson, Director of Sales at Scandex.

He continued, “Podiatrists understand this very well and the demand for our Swedish ergonomic seating has increased significantly so much so that we have developed a new division to cater to their specific needs.”

Podiatrists Can “Build” their own Ergonomic Chair

Scandex recently launched the second generation of their website,, which provides podiatrists and their office staff with a Selection Guide that provides guidelines for utilization of Scandex Swedish ergonomic chairs and stools in various settings. Individual sections on the website for types of arm supports, upholstery, cleaning and care allow podiatrist to “build” their own chair to preference. Podiatrists may also take advantage of Scandex special “Rent-A-Chair” option.
