Dynasit - FunkčnostOrder

Functionality



Back, neck and spine relief

Dynasit pad has a positive effect not only on spine, but also on the functional defects of the musculoskeletal system.

Functional disorders of the musculoskeletal system are functional disorders without structural changes. The balance between the muscle and joint systems and their neural regulation ensures correct function of the musculoskeletal system. Proper function is achieved by a tuned interplay of these structures. The ideal state can be very easily influenced by various stimuli from within the body or outside. Today's poor sedentary lifestyle, improper diet, and stress very often lead to formation of functional disorders. Unfortunately, these disorders increasingly affect not only adults, but also children, with their age getting ever lower. It is important to realize that long-term misalignment of the function leads to damage to the structure. The function is a crucial factor for the emergence or formation of pain. Therefore, healthy sitting on Dynasit is the right prevention of functional disorders.

Functional disorders occur at three levels

1. Central regulation function

From birth, each person creates their exercise habits and stereotypes. They form a system of conditioned and unconditioned reflexes that arise on the basis of recurring stimuli and impulses. The basic motion stereotypes, called postural stereotypes, include lying, sitting, standing, and posture. The locomotion stereotypes are, among others, walking, running, manual activities, and breathing. Motion stereotypes can be divided into first and second order stereotypes. First order stereotypes are determined genetically, that is automatically, and constitute the fundamental matrix, which is roughly the same in all individuals. Second order stereotypes are formed by individual development of functional connections. It is important to understand how stereotypes develop, fixate, and change. Erroneous motion stereotypes are most often a result of a failure of the central control, resulting in impaired muscle coordination. Erroneous stereotypes are not permanent, they can be altered as a result of internal changes in the body or changes in the external environment. Fixated wrong stereotypes are hard to remove, with the success rate getting even lower with higher age.

2. Muscle function

In order to achieve the most effective movement, strength of muscles, proper and fast use of muscles during motion, while putting even load on joints, it is essential to ensure balance of muscle tension among muscles on opposite sides of the joint, called antagonists. If there are either external or internal influences that lead to adaptation changes inside the organism, the muscles with a tendency to weaken (dynamic muscles) get weaker and postural muscles which tend to shorten become shorter. This creates muscular imbalance. If such malfunction in the tension of muscles is not cured, it eventually leads to a vicious cycle. On one side, the shortened muscles pull the motion segment more and more on its side, while the muscles on the other side become ever weaker. Muscle imbalance can be imagined as a swinging door which is held in place by two springs. If the door is to move freely from side to side, the two springs must be in balance. Otherwise, the shortened spring pulls the door on its side. The cause of muscle imbalance is inappropriate functional load, which can be either insufficient or one-sided. One-sided load may be dynamic or static. Dynamic one-sided load mostly affects athletes. Therefore, it is of great importance to think about balance in straining certain muscle groups when doing sports.

3. Joint function

Each joint has to have a certain range of movement, direction of movement. All joints are in harmony with the muscles, and they affect each other. In case of injuries, inflammation, or degenerative diseases, joints became limited in the range of their motion. This results in blocks and pain. In functional disorders of the joints, it is necessary to reduce joint hypermobility, which is an increased range of normal movement in the joint. It can be local – caused by exercising (gymnastics) – or general, which is characterized by an overall increase in flexibility (laxity) of solid tissues, such as joint capsules and ligaments.

In general hypermobility, it is necessary to re-strengthen the muscle corset as hypermobility causes functional disorders of the joints and muscles.

 

Back pain is everyday challenge for most of us: up to 80% of U.S. population has low back pain. It is the second most common reason people go to doctor.

Back pain, having its origin in the spine, is globally recognized as one of the most serious health, economic, and social problems.

Nearly 85% of the world's population experience this type of pain during their lives. According to data from the U.S., it was found back pain is the number one cause of incapacity among people under 45, while being the second most common reason for visiting the doctor. Back pain is also the fifth most common reason for hospitalization and the fourth leading cause of surgical procedures. The annual cost of the treatment and incapacity of these patients amount to fifty billion dollars. Equally disturbing is the situation in the Czech Republic. According to the data issued by the Institute of Health Information and Statistics of the Czech Republic, in 1997, musculoskeletal diseases occupied the second place in the causes of incapacity to work (13.88%), after respiratory diseases (48.4%), and ahead of injuries and poisoning (10.76%). It was back pain which in this group of diseases accounted for not only the highest number of days in incapacity (360,000 of more than 580,000), but also for the longest duration of incapacity for work. Since 1970, the number has doubled, and the average duration of incapacity increased by 74%. This statistical data strongly urges us to give a serious thought about the causes, treatment possibilities, and prevention of back pain and to review the whole series of current diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

 

Sedentary lifestyle and a lack of movement prevent us from being fit

If we think about the causes, diagnostics, and latest findings regarding the treatment of back pain, we necessarily come to the conclusion that the most sensible approach is to view it as a fact and occasional, though very unpleasant, part of everyday life.

Back pain is not exclusively a medical issue, it is rather a complex set of biological, psychological, and social factors, primarily dominated by the psychological aspects. In diagnostics, excluding several serious and basically exceptional conditions, the search for determining the exact causes of back pain – for the price of expensive and often cumbersome medical examination – is in most cases completely unnecessary. Creating diagnoses literally at any price and the trend to diagnose the disease which does not exist instead of finding the true problems and their cause most likely stem from a lack of self-reflection on the part of the doctor. Doctors perform unnecessary diagnostic and therapeutic procedures not because the patient's condition requires so but out of certain anxiety to be "covered" under all circumstances.

An encouraging finding is that the majority of patients suffering from back pain heal as quickly as those who are not treated at all. The best medical approach is thus to stay patient and avoid insensitive treatment interventions that disturb the spontaneous and totally natural process of healing. The best advice the doctor can give acute patients is to try to endure the difficulties and pain for few days. Such consultation should naturally include familiarizing the patient with the causes of their difficulties and stressing the favorable prognosis leading to relief. In order to relieve pain faster, it is very often much more effective if the patient remains in good shape and stays, if their condition allows that, reasonably active. For the prevention and treatment of back pain, it is essential to adjust the lifestyle, in particular as regards the psychosocial and physical components. In fact, lifestyle changes are in most cases – not only in the functional etiology – a causal treatment. For the vast majority of back pain patients, we have been finding out with relentless regularity that lack of movement and stereotype movement cause overweight and muscle imbalance.
A proper lifestyle and targeted therapeutic exercise, including proper sitting, have then proved to be invaluable aids in the prevention and treatment of both acute and chronic vertebral problems. A countless number of clinical trials regarding physical modes and back pain have clearly shown that exercise programs significantly reduce the risk of recurrence and prevent the transition of the disease into chronicity. Prevention of back pain and other lifestyle diseases, however, may be positively influenced by even a seemingly insignificant increase in physical activity. Very often, it is enough if the patient avoids using elevators, takes a walk to work, exerts at least minimum physical activity at home, or takes a one-hour walk every day.

Nevertheless, the above approach is not very popular among patients, except for those who already suffer from truly significant difficulties. While enlightened patients purposefully seek their doctors or physical therapists to consult the issues of movement regime and diet, the overwhelming majority of people, however, take a different view. They are of the opinion that in order to stay healthy, we need to be manipulated, massaged, or otherwise physically treated with a massive support of pharmaceuticals and without any initiative of their own. For the resulting treatment effect, changing the mindset of patients is crucial; they need to realize that the key to recovery lies mainly in their hands and that it is the question of their effort and will.

 

Dynasit supports healthy development of children

The development of the spine begins with the birth and lasts the whole period of growth of the human body.

If we don't pay attention to the children's spine in this period, we ourselves cause negative changes to it. Unfortunately, these changes cannot be fixed in the adulthood. In terms of movement and development of the spine, pre-school age can be seen as a favorable period. Unfortunately, the following years the child spends sitting at school for several hours every day, doing homework, or glued to the computer and TV screen can rapidly change everything...

Let's take a look at numbers. The average number of first graders in Slovakia is more than 53,000 children. Already at the age of 7, it is about 10%, that is more than 5,300 children, whose lives are made difficult due to scoliosis, abnormal posture, or other various deformities. Years pass, and at age of 18, the percentage rises from 10% to 40%, which means that at the age of 18, more than 21,000 young people suffer from spine conditions. In result, surgeons have been registering unprecedented workload. The average number of surgeries in a single year exceeds 5,000. We need to do something about that, as new patients for neurosurgical clinics are now being recruited already at elementary schools...

If you want to improve the health of your children, teach them how to use Dynasit pad and help to prevent these diseases. Let's teach our children to sit properly and appreciate their health. Healthy sitting helps our children prevent back pain while being fun at the same time.

 

Strengthens core muscles

Activates back muscles and increase blood circulation throughout the body

Dynamic, active sitting reduces the negative effects of sedentary lifestyle, such as functional disorders of the musculoskeletal system (scoliosis – curvature of the spine), structural changes in the spine and joints, or damage to the intervertebral discs. Active, dynamic sitting is exercise, which activates blood circulation. It leads to a better blood supply to tissues and organs, which has a general positive effect on the body's cells and the overall fitness of the body.

Complex slacked muscles of the back are stimulated and strengthened

Through stabilization efforts, meaning by a constantly changing position of the pelvis, Dynasit strengthens the muscles of the lower extremities and pelvis. Receptors in muscles, tendons, and proprioceptors in joints respond to the changing position. These receptors then send signals to the brain, which regulates the work of muscles, thus proper functioning of muscle chains. This helps to fix incorrect movement stereotypes. The work of small muscles of the foot protects the feet against formation of flat feet.

It only takes a few minutes a day sitting on Dynasit to feel increased muscle strength.

From the beginning, sit on the slightly inflated pad only for 5 to 10 minutes and repeat 3 – 5 times a day!

Strengthens lower back, gluteal, and abdominal muscles

Over 70 joins of the spine and pelvis are prompt to active motion

 

Long-term improvement of body posture

Supports upright body posture

Thanks to gravity, our body relaxes and the pressure on the intervertebral discs becomes evenly distributed. When transferring the body weight forward to the lower limbs (when writing, working with PC, etc.), the air bubble pushes the sitting part of the pad, which creates the correct position of the pelvis and the right posture in the lumbar section.

Reduces back pain and stiffness caused by improper sitting

If we sit in an unstable position, we are forced to maintain a balance, which is ensured by autochthonous deep muscles of the spine. Their activity is increased thanks to constant stimuli coming from the unstable surface.

Dynasit pad reduces the tendency to slouch when sitting

Brügger's lightweight sitting position is characterized by pitching the pelvis forward, lifting the chest (which prevents arching of the thoracic spine), head positioning, breathing into the stomach, and proper fixation of the blades. The legs and the thighs create a 45° angle, with the feet on the ground slightly rotated outwards. Such sitting is ideal if our muscles are not shortened, because every long-lasting sitting position causes fatigue and unfavorable isometric activity of the postural muscles. Therefore, making sitting dynamic is the ideal solution.

Encouranges natural curvature of the spine

 

Strengthens and shapes your body

Dynasit pad activates muscle activity and thus increases calories consumption

Dynasit burns calories and tones and shapes your body. The buttocks and thighs are one of the most problematic parts of the female body. Sitting on Dynasit leads to better blood circulation and activation of the lymphatic system in these problematic areas.

Promotes muscles tone and definition

Dynasit is an unstable pad. Sitting on it initiates physical activity. Individually, it can inflated, for example like a swim ring. If we sit in an unstable position, we are forced to maintain balance, which is ensured by autochthonous deep muscles of the spine. Their activity is increased thanks to constant stimuli coming from the unstable surface. Thanks to gravity, our body relaxes and the pressure on the intervertebral discs becomes evenly distributed. When transferring the body weight forward to the lower limbs (when writing, working with PC, etc.), the air bubble pushes the sitting part of the pad, which creates the correct position of the pelvis and the right posture in the lumbar section.

Massages and increases blood circulation in the pelvic region which helps reduce cellulite.

Cellulite is an aesthetic problem of the skin, particularly in the buttocks and thighs areas. In cellulite, the volume of the subcutaneous fat cells is increased, which are pushed against the skin and create the so-called dimples. Among other things, long sitting is a great risk factor for the formation of cellulite. In classic sitting, there is only minimal blood circulation in the gluteal muscle, and the flow of lymph is also significantly inhibited. In active sitting on Dynasit pad, though, the gluteal muscle is maximally activated, with a great blood flow and patency of the lymphatic system.
