A Revolutionary Seat Increases Comfort And Blood Circulation(for airplaines, tour buses, motorhomes, trains, office and computer users).
A Frequent traveler
has developed modified airline passenger seats, called NewSit
and NewSit2, that are built to enhance
sitting comfort and significantly reduce Deep Vein Thrombosis
(DVT), a potential fatal condition, also known as "Economy
Class Syndrome", which is believed to affect
millions of air passengers a year, worldwide.
An ever-growing number of air passengers are becoming aware
of the risk of DVT, caused by compelled prolonged immobile
sitting within a limited space and insufficient leg room
– as is typical for the standard aircraft seat. In
the USA alone, about TWO MILLION people a year suffer DVT,
half of them air passengers (See “Articles”).
According to Aventis Pharmaceuticals:
"Up to 2 million Americans are affected annually by DVT. Of those who develop PE, up to 300,000 will die each year. More people die in the United States from PE than breast cancer and AIDS combined.."
As a result, public,
media and government agencies begin to understand that this
unbearable situation cannot be left untreated, especially
when innovative seats that dramatically improve passengers
well being, exist.
Mr. Arnold Jonas, a frequent flyer has introduced an innovative
sitting concept, which enables a portion of the front part
of the seat to extend forward and upward. The moving part,
which is button-operated, enables users to support their
legs under knees, to a desired height thus relieving legs
stress and enabling wiggling of the legs above the floor.
These effortless exercise capabilities, which give a sensation
of an easy chair, are recommended by all experts in order
to improve blood circulation in the lower legs and significantly
reduce risk of DVT.
has recently won a US patent, covering the concept, technological
solutions and applications. After perfecting the innovative
mechanism and building a few prototypes on the basis of
conventional seats, NewSit was put to a series of examinations
and tests, including medical assessments of its effectiveness.
Recently, a comparative sitting test on a prototype model
of NewSit was conducted by Professor J. Kreiner of California
State University at Fullerton, California.
