FIT & FUNCTION
ROCKING CHAIR
PERSONALIZED FIT:  Determination of the size and shape of a chair that will accommodate one's lordosis and other critical dimensions based on anthropometric data such as buttock pophteal and popliteal height as well as personal preference.

"It is striking how quickly and certainly 3/4 inch difference is noticeable with a change in the relationship of my frame to your frame."  ~Rory Jaros

PERSON

LORDOSIS: Concave (inward) curve of the lower spine that occurs when the angle between the thigh and torso in a seated position is more than 90 degrees.

ANTHROPOMETRIC: Relating to measurements of the human body. Anthropometric data is useful in designing anything like a chair that supports or comes into physical contact with the human frame.

BUTTOCK POPLITEAL: The distance from the crease behind the knee to the buttocks; the anthropometric measurement used for determining seat depth.

POPLITEAL HEIGHT: The distance from the floor to the crease behind the knee; the anthropmetric measurement used for determining seat height.

Fittings for a Walden Rocker is best achieved at the artist markets or by appointment.
