What Is the Best Sitting Position?
If you use a computer, a cell phone or a tablet of any sort, you will want to watch this video.
In the past, it was recommended that a 90 degree angle of sitting in front of a computer was the best for your back; this is not the case. Studies have shown that the best angle to sit at is 135 degrees with the computer monitor just above eye level. The weight of your back should be on the chair's back itself not on your low back.
For the use of all mobile devices, it is important that you place them above eye level, otherwise, with repeated use, you will develop a hump on your back also known as hyperkaiphosis. The Journal of the American Medical Association has done a study which concluded that youth using mobile devices are increasingly developing humps on their backs.
