How UVI Chairs came to be

Introduction

The story of UVI Chairs

The story of how UVI CHAIRs came to be starts in the year 2015. Then, at a young age of 24, Tadej spent a lot of time behind computer due to work and playing video games. But spending so much time sitting started to take a tool  on him. He slowly felt more and more back pain as well as had tingling feeling in his arms and legs after sitting for couple of hours. After spending few hours on Google Tadej realized that to prevent back pain and tingling feeling he will need to get a new chair and start sitting in the right position!

Effects of poor posture are not something you feel immediately, but over time the stress you are putting on your spine due to poor posture can lead to anatomical changes in your spine. These changes lead to back pain by causing problems with your muscles, discs, and joints.

Lower-Back-Pain

Tingling in hands can be caused by bad sitting posture. These effects are caused by compression or pinching of a bundle of nerves and blood vessels located at the base of the neck or shoulder. Compression during sitting often happens because of a bad pasture that is caused by bad chair.

Just like the tingling in hands a person may feel numbness in their legs and feet due to sitting in a chair or a position that puts too much pressure on the nerves or reduces blood flow.  Many people say their leg has “fallen asleep,” and the medical term is transient (temporary) paresthesia.

In hope to improve his health conditions Tadej decided to invest into a new chair. Since he was a gamer at heart he decided that buying a gaming-office chair would be the best option! So he visited the store and bought a chair for 300 €. After he got the new Tadej started feeling better. Back pains were slowly going away and he felt that the new chair fixed all of his problems. Few months have passed and Tadej noticed that the chair base is not as soft as it used to be. It was not comfortable to sit on the chair anymore, but rather slightly unpleasant. The foam was not firm and while sitting Tadej could fell the metal pole underneath the foam. He could not believe what has happened!

After only 6 months the foam became completely flat, uncomfortable and eventually broke in half!

Shocked and angry that he spent 300€ on a chair that only lasted him 6 month Tadej decided to take matters into his own hands. He went online and started reading article after article about what back pains, tingly feeling, what determinates a quality chairs and chair manufacturing. 

After months of doing research Tadej made a list of most important things and feature a quality chairs needs to have:

Quality Polyurethane foam

The most important thing in the chair is quality foam. Many manufacturers are using cheap recycled foam that feels the same as quality polyurethane foam at the beginning but losses its comfort after half a year.

Fully adjustable chair

To make sure that chair fits each individual perfectly and allows him to sit in the perfect posture it needs to be as adjustable as possible. A perfect chair needs an adjustable backrest with tilt mechanism together with adjustable height and armrests.

Lumbar and head support

Every good chair needs a fully adjustable lumbar and head support. Lumbar support helps you sit in the right posture while preventing any unwanted pressure on your lower back whereas head support provides additional comfort.

The beginning of UVI chair!

It was time for testing, adjusting and improving prototype until it finally passed every quality check Tadej reach about in his research. Once the prototype was finished it was time to move to design. Tadej knew that to make a chair stand out you need an attractive to make sure that it stands out from other chairs while still being able to blend in with whatever room it is put it. So in February of 2017 the first batch of UVI chairs was ready for public release!

First-UVI-Chairs

To infinity and beyond!

Finally Tadej made him idea a reality! He managed to create a high quality, fully adjustable gaming-office chair for an affordable price. But Tadej did not stop there. He decided to put all of his time and effort into making UVI Chairs even batter, more adjustable and appealing to all kind of different tastes. He attended as many conferences and events as he could, talked to as many clients as possible to get as much feedback as possible. At the end of 2017 he put all of the gathered information together and made few more adjustments and changes based on feedback.

But Tadej's story doesn't end there. He keeps reading all the feedback and working on UVI CHAIRS so that no matter who you are UVI CHAIR can be the perfect chair for you!

“I was only 24 years old when I started getting back pains. I did a lot of research on how to improve my sitting habits and posture but at the end, no matter what I did, my back pains did not want to go away, so I decided to change my chair.  As a student and a gamer, I went all in and bought a gaming chair from a well known brand. Why a gaming chair?  It looked super comfy, soft and widely adjustable.  My new chair was super awesome for first 2 months but then things started to change for the worst. Chair lost it’s softness and slowly I started to fell my back pains.

I was devastated. I invested so much of my money into a well known gaming chair but the results were bad. So I decided to create my own brand of quality and soft gaming chairs!  But I knew that just creating chars is not enough so I decided to go further.
