Passive ergonomics in the office setting.

Mini Free-Float

This passive ergonomic mechanism was designed for medium to large size chairs. The Mini Free-Float's function is a tilt mechanism that allows the seat and backrest to follow a person's body movement independently. The spring tension in the mechanism can be adjusted to suit the body weight of the individual, and the mechanism can be locked at any angle. The JBUM option is also available allowing manual depth adjustment of the back rest. Cross bars have been added to the mechanism to provide the same hole pattern and balance point as the T3001 mechanism. An integrated seat slider option can be added to both the Euro Back and JBUM style control.
