The concept of a Zero Gravity chair first originated with NASA, as they searched for a way to reduce the pressure on an astronaut's body during take off by distributing their body weight as evenly as possible. The Zero gravity position is also the natural position into which the body moves when a person is floating in a microgravity condition, as would be the case in a spacecraft orbiting the earth.
When we get out of bed and stand up or sit at a desk, the force of gravity on our bodies causes the discs in our spines to compress, causing our spinal muscles to contract in order to maintain our balance. This process can cause pain and stress on our back. If, however, we can reduce the gravitational force on our backs, the muscles are then able to relax thus alleviating back pain and discomfort.
Therefore, an important health benefit of a Zero Gravity Recliner is the reduction of pressure on the spine. Not only does a Palliser Zero Gravity chair help to accomplish this, but it also moves the body in a very smooth manner with a sophisticated power mechanism. After a long day of sitting at a desk or standing up working, the effects of gravity can take their toll on our bodies. Many top quality mattresses can not even provide perfect support for our backs. A Zero Gravity Recliner can support the body in such a way that the weight is distributed evenly, allowing the spine to relax because of reduced gravitational pressure.
Further health benefits of a Zero Gravity chair include:
- Allows your heart to pump blood more effortlessly because it is not working against gravity, especially due to the fact that the legs are in an elevated position. Oxygenated blood is working with the force of gravity rather than against it.
- Reduces joint pressure.
- Promotes circulation in the legs helping to reduce swelling.
- Relaxes the back muscles so the spine can decompress.

“Stylish recliner” sounds like an oxymoron but Palliser has turned those two words into perfect counterparts with their new reclining styles.

The Zero Gravity Recliner from Palliser Furniture is the perfect example of how far recliners have come. It lets you lay back to relieve any pressure on your body by distributing weight evenly across the chair, simulating weightlessness. With the power mechanism, not only does it gently lay you back at the touch of a button, but you also have the power to easily adjust to any of the infinite positions in between!
