First time in ACA's history that a furniture line has been endorsed
SOMERSET, New Jersey -- For the first time in the history of the American Chiropractic Association, the Arlington, Virginia-based association has put their stamp of approval, their endorsement, on a line of consumer chairs for home and office use. That line is the Ekornes Stressless®.
The ACA is the largest chiropractic association in the United States and serves as the national voice for the profession. Citing the unique design features of the Stressless® and the ability to ensure proper support for both the head and lower back, the ACA's endorsement comes at a time when consumers are taking a heightened interest in purchasing home furnishings that balance fashion with comfort and support.
The Stressless® chair, the foundation of the Ekornes furniture line, has been manufactured in Norway since 1971. With its distinctive features, listed below, the Stressless® chair is available as a separate recliner, or as part of a seating system that includes both sofa and loveseat:
Glide Knob: tension is adjusted to body weight to allow for easy gliding. No levers to pull, no pre-defined range of motion, no need to expend extra energy to lean back.
Plus™ System: The patented Plus™ system moves the head rest slightly forward as the chair glides back, allowing for easy reading, television watching or net surfing. A quick snap of the headrest and it lies flat for maximum relaxation.
Lumbar Support: As the chair glides to recline, its back curves to match the changing contours of one's lumbar area, providing support in every position.
3600 Swivel Base: The patented swivel base allows for maximum motion.
In addition to the above features, Ekornes has been producing the Stressless®. designs in various sizes since 1996. Ekornes was the first company in the market to take into account that people with different builds have to have different chair sizes in order to sit comfortably. Currently, all chair styles come in two sizes, with some styles available in three sizes.
Kevin McGuinness, President of Ekornes USA says "Ekornes has been manufacturing the Stressless® with support and comfort in mind since 1971. With health and well-being becoming primary in a consumer's mind when buying home and office furniture, the ACA's endorsement of the Stressless®. is testament to the quality and support for which Ekornes and Stressless®. are known throughout the world."
Established in 1934, Ekornes® is the leading manufacturer of sofas and chairs in Scandinavia, with corporate offices in New Jersey to serve the U.S. market. Ekornes® developed the world-famous Stressless® recliner, which features a patented system that adjusts automatically, allowing body weight to determine the right level of support.
