Do you have a child sitting exams this year❓ The importance of Posture & Positioning for handwriting

👉Students, you need to really read this post if you are doing exams & or sitting for long periods at your desk/work station this year.

👉Correct posture when sitting

The key to a proper posture is the 90-90-90 rule. You should have your chair at the proper height to maintain a 90 degree angle at your knees, your hips and at your elbows.

Your feet should be flat with a 90 degree angle at the ankle.

👉Have you ever wondered how to sit with correct posture❓❓❓Don't worry, you aren't the only one who has thought about this. Many people have pain that can be prevented.

✔The importance of sitting posture and a simple strategy that you can use throughout your everyday life to make sure you are sitting properly without having to think about it too much.

✔One scenario is for those who have been sitting at a computer for a long period of time. The head and shoulders tend to lean forward and the pelvis begins to tilt backwards forming a slouched position.

✔This causes none of the postural muscles to be engaged and the ligaments and spinal structures of the spine are more vulnerable to injuries such as rotator cuff problems and nervous system problems.

✔To help combat the ‘slouch’ and the injuries that can follow - remember to sit upright and at 90 degree angles throughout your entire body.

90º Body Check

  • 90 degree angle at your ear and shoulder

  • 90 degree angle at your hip and trunk

  • 90 degree angle at your upper and lower knee

  • 90 degree angle at your ankle and foot

👉Anytime you're at your desk, you should be seated in the “90-90-90 Position.”

This means that your elbows should be bent at a 90-degree angle, your hips should be at a 90-degree angle, and your knees should be at a 90-degree angle, with your feet flat on the floor beneath your chair.
