Zero Gravity Benefits
All About Zero–Gravity®
Orthopeadic surgeons universally agree that the Zero-Gravity® stress-free position reduces pressure on your spine, relieves muscle tension and increases circulation.
The Zero-Gravity® or anti-gravity position is also commonly referred to as the 'body's natural position'. This position approximates the posture sleeping astronauts assume when floating weightless in space (when the body experiences absolute minimum internal and external stresses). Astronauts also use this position to cope with the forces experienced during takeoff.
When standing a person normally has about 100% of their total body weight of pressure on their lower back.
When sitting a person normally has about 150% of their total body weight of pressure on their lower back.
When lying in bed, a person normally has about 25% of pressure on their lower back.
When reclined in the Zero-Gravity® position, there is 0% of total body weight of pressure on the lower back. Hence the pressure is reduced to zero.
When there is less pressure, there is normally less pain since the body will be in a better position to 'heal' itself.
