The Importance of Posture for a Child

The Importance of Correct Posture for Children’s Development

Happy National Children’s Day! Celebrated by hundreds of Britons throughout the country since 2014, this occasion is aimed at getting as many people as possible to create events and activities. This highlight and celebrate the importance of a healthy childhood in the UK. On this day, children’s issues are discussed throughout the country to find the best solutions which ensure the continual development of children.

Amongst the most pressing issue that UK parents are dealing with is related to their children’s ergonomics. Children sit in bad postures a lot. This will cause serious problems as they grow into adulthood. If neglected, problems such as back and neck pains might arise in the future. In fact, in a study conducted on 10-year-old children, researchers have found that as many as 10% of the population might have in them time bombs which will explode into serious back and neck issues when they reach adulthood. For this reason, to allow children to fully develop and realise their potential, it is important to take a look at this posture issue and take preventive measures to keep back and neck pains at bay.

There are a lot of effective ways to combat poor posture in children. You could encourage your children to sit in the right posture all the time. However, this is quite time-consuming and requires a lot of patience to pull off. Alternatively, you could opt for ergonomic children furniture.

Ergonomic Children Furniture

Ergonomic Children Posture

Ergonomic Children furniture is designed to help your child sit in a comfortable and healthy posture. The number of adjustments available is useful in nurturing your kids to the correct position.

However, finding the right children chair or children desk might be difficult as there are a lot of factors to take into account. There’s the aforementioned issue of ergonomics, and then there’s the problem with finding the right measurements. Kids grow up very quickly, so the furniture you have this year might not accommodate your kids the year after. For this reason, a successful design must be flexible so that the correct working height should be maintained even as your children grow.

As well as height, other adjustments on chairs including seat depth, backrest height would also be beneficial. For the desk, a tilting tabletop increases comfort when reading and writing. This reduces the chance "hunching" over the desk and retain the correct posture.

Moll Funktion

Moll Kids

As one of the leading ergonomic brand for children, Moll has taken into account all these factors. All of their products are fitted with a height adjustment mechanism. This allows your children to use their worksurface for a very long period of time, from pre-school to even university. Even better, their desk can be tilted to make sure that your kids can study in their most comfortable posture. For the best ergonomic solution for your kids, Moll will certainly be a great choice.

Moll products are available at Back2. From chairs, desks to containers, we have everything you need to build a healthy environment for your child to study in. We have a wide variety of models and colours that will be sure to complement your children’s bedroom.
