Camping means a feeling of freedom for some, a practical alternative to air travel for others. Millions of people travel by camper van, caravan or camping in tents every year – with a rising trend. Campers not only spend a lot of money on travel expenses and site fees, but also on equipment. Camping chairs are among the essential gear.
These usually folding seats are used for many things: at every meal, for a cosy chat or simply to relax and enjoy the day. This can easily add up to several hours each day. And so it is important that camping chairs should have an ergonomic, back-friendly design.
Compared to the rickety items provided in the past, today industry offers top quality products. They support a back-friendly posture in various inclined sitting and lying positions. It is important for the chair to be suitable for different uses. However, individual adjustment is not always possible, so that the chair should have the widest possible range of ergonomic properties.
One of the requirements naturally also includes product safety, which has to be monitored constantly by the manufacturer. This is the only way to warrant that even heavy persons (heed the maximum weight) can use all sitting and lying positions without any danger.
Ideally, a foot rest or stool should be available for clearly improved relief for the back when sitting; this also facilitates venous reflux from the legs.
