Okamura Cruise Workstation comprises Cruise Chair, Cruise Desk and Adjustable Monitor Arm. Also available is an optional Cruise Workstation Screen.

Computer-intensive work is shifting toward tasks that involve long periods of thinking while looking at the monitor. Until recently, computer work mainly involved inputting data while looking down at paperwork and the keyboard. Working posture in this new mode of computer-oriented work tends to tilt the upper body away from the monitor in an effort to find the best angle and distance from it.

Okamura focused on this to develop a posture ideal not only for working but thinking as well. The low-seat, rear-tilt keeps the body relaxed and makes it possible to concentrate many more hours compared to sitting in other chairs. Compared to the old upright sitting posture, the low-seat, rear-tilt posture is a major step forward.

Free ergonomic set-up of the chair by qualified DSE assessors is available upon delivery inside the M25.

Summary

    As the business environment changes so does seating posture

    From work posture to thinking posture, effective creative thinking needs not only a relaxed and comfortable brain but also a relaxed, comfortable body.

    What is the most comfortable work posture now that many of us are spending more of our time working at a computer?

    Human body engineering research provides an answer to that question with the relaxed working style achieved by the utterly unique "low-seat, rear tilt" concept.

    An all new seating style for intelligent and creative thinking from Okamura, "low seat, rear-tilt" is the style for professionals who are the business world's next generation of movers and shakers.

    The comfortable seat and back position is the result of extensive research

    The low-seat, rear-tilt posture is the result of doing research on how people actually work in front of computers.

    Okamura’s exclusively developed low-seat, rear-tilt posture places the seat in a low position and sharply tilts the body back to reduces stress on the body even when working several hours before a computer.

    Since this posture was developed based on research on how people actually work in front of computers it provides comfort that past posture systems were unable to achieve.

    Even after several hours the low-seat, rear-tilt posture keeps you relaxed

    The low-seat, rear-tilt concept was formulated through collaborative research with human body engineering advocate and Keio University Department of Science and Technology Professor Nobutoshi Yamazaki.

    The low-seat, rear-tilt posture is the result of accumulated experiments using chairs, desks and other equipment in a variety of shapes.

    In an article on the BBC's website in 2006, Levent Caglar from the charity BackCare is quoted as saying "As to what is the best angle between thigh and torso when seated, reclining at 135 degrees can make sitting more difficult as there is a tendency to slide off the seat: 120 degrees or less may be better.". The Okamura Cruise Workstation chair can recline to 113 degrees.

    Low stress on the body also minimizes changing posture

    The low-seat, rear-tilt posture keeps the body relaxed and makes it possible to concentrate many more hours compared to sitting in other chairs. Compared to the upright sitting posture, the low-seat, rear-tilt is a major step forward.

    Rear-tilt disperses body weight, while the Low-seat reduces swelling

    The changes that occur in the body also clearly show the reduced stress achieved by the low-seat, rear-tilt posture.

    The dispersion of pressure received from the back and the seat of the ergonomic office chair means that the body is supported over a wider area.

    Reduced leg swelling is a result of bringing the height of the heart and legs closer together so that blood circulates more easily.

    Returns

    Due to the current climate, please use the contact form and we will get back to you with an update on returns

    Bespoke orders are acquired specially for your order. For this reason, bespoke products cannot be returned.

    All returned products must be in the original packaging and in a saleable condition, without any marks from use. You will need to arrange for a courier or postal service to deliver the item back to us at your own cost. Please note you will be responsible for the item until we can confirm receipt at our premises. For this reason, we recommend using a trackable service provided by almost all postal and courier services.

    In some instances returns can also be made through either of the following options:

    • Simply take the proof of purchase and the product you wish to return or exchange to our showroom at 28 Wigmore St, London W1U 2RN.
    • Within the M25 we may be able to arrange collection for large items such as office chairs and desks at an additional charge. Please contact us to find out if we are able to do so.

    Faulty Items
    If for any reason you feel the item you have received is faulty please contact us as soon as possible to let us know that the item has a fault. We will request that you explain to us what the fault is and in some instances, we will request that you send us photos of the fault so that we can see the fault described. Once the fault is identified we will ask you to return the item and provide a replacement. In the event that a replacement is unavailable (whether it be due to discontinuation or end of line clearance), we will either replace it with a similar product or provide a full refund. If you are returning an item because it is faulty we will reimburse your return costs once we have inspected and confirmed the item has a fault.

    If you wish to return an item to us for any other reason such as our seven days’ returns policy (on certain products only) please contact us

    to inform us that you would like to return an item and the reason for the return. We will give you an address to return the goods. Please note that you must include the original receipt with the item so that we can identify that the returned product is from your order along with the reason for the return (you can write this on the receipt if you wish). Failure to do so may mean we are unable to identify who the return is from and we will be unable to process the return.
