Inflammation is a biological response of the immune system to harmful stimuli and closely tied to several health conditions, like rheumatoid arthritis and cardiovascular diseases. Innovative ways of reducing inflammation in the body are emerging, like zero gravity chairs. A Svago zero gravity chair can recline into a position that minimizes stress on the body, providing a promising option for alleviating the symptoms associated with inflammation-driven maladies.

How Zero Gravity Position Helps Reduce Inflammation

The zero gravity position, inspired by the posture astronauts adopt during space launches, distributes weight evenly across the body, alleviating pressure points and promoting relaxation. This position involves reclining at a precise angle where the legs are elevated slightly above the heart, typically around 120 degrees. Reclining in this position facilitates blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, effectively reducing inflammation throughout the body.

Zero Gravity Chair Features To Help Reduce Inflammation In Body

Zero gravity chairs have many features that may help alleviate inflammation and promote overall well-being. The zero gravity position coupled with features like adjustability, heat therapy, and massage can provide numerous benefits for the body, including reducing inflammation.

Zero Gravity Position for Elevated Legs

Svago zero gravity chair models include the Newton, the ZGR, the Lite 2, and the Swivel - all offering zero gravity positioning to elevate the legs. Models like the ZGR and the Swivel offer effortless reclining mechanisms, allowing users to seamlessly adjust to the zero gravity position. This feature aids in elevating the legs above the heart, facilitating improved blood flow and reducing inflammation – all with the touch of a button.

Heat Therapy

Svago zero gravity chairs that offer complementary heat therapy emit gentle warmth to targeted areas. Heated zero gravity chairs like the ZGR, Newton, and Lite 2 offer lumbar-area heat therapy, whereas the Swivel targets the lower back. Heat therapy is known to enhance circulation and ease muscle tension, reducing inflammation in the process.

Zero Gravity Massage

Our zero gravity chairs with massage functionality (either air pressure massage or vibration massage) use a variety of techniques that stimulate muscles, improve circulation, and alleviate inflammation. Most chairs come with customizable settings that tailor the massage experience to address specific areas of discomfort. The Newton and ZGR, for example, offer massage and custom memory settings that allow you to save your massage preferences for future use.


Zero gravity chairs with premium cushioning may help enhance comfort. The Newton offers full-body memory foam cushioning and Swivel uses high-density poly foam which may provide added comfort by taking unnecessary stress off of the joints and body.

Reducing Swelling in Localized Parts of the Body

Swelling in localized parts of the body can be a discomforting and sometimes painful experience. Our zero gravity chairs provide targeted relief for inflammation in specific areas of the body, including:

  • Joints: Joint inflammation, often resulting from conditions like arthritis or injury, can lead to pain and restricted movement. Zero gravity environments can alleviate pressure on the joints, reducing inflammation in the body and promoting mobility.
  • Muscles: Muscle swelling commonly occurs after strenuous exercise, injury, or overuse. Zero gravity can help in reducing muscle tension and promoting circulation, aiding in the removal of excess fluid and reducing swelling.
  • Hands and feet: Swelling in the hands and feet can result from prolonged standing, sitting, or certain medical conditions like edema. Zero gravity environments can facilitate improved blood flow, reducing swelling in these extremities.
  • Head and neck: Inflammation in the head and neck region can arise from conditions like sinusitis, dental issues, or injury. Zero gravity can alleviate pressure on the neck and head, potentially reducing inflammation and associated discomfort.
  • Abdomen: Abdominal swelling may occur due to digestive issues, surgery, or certain medical conditions. Zero gravity may help in relieving pressure on the abdomen, potentially reducing inflammation and discomfort.
  • Back: Inflammation in the back can be caused by injury, poor posture, or medical conditions like herniated discs. Zero gravity environments can promote spinal alignment and relaxation of back muscles, potentially reducing swelling and pain.

Extra Benefits Of Reducing Inflammation With Zero Gravity Chairs

Beyond fighting inflammation in the body, zero gravity chairs offer many additional benefits, including:

  1. Improving cognitive function and brain fog: Enhanced blood flow to the brain can sharpen cognitive function and alleviate brain fog, promoting mental clarity and acuity.
  2. Improving mental health: The relaxation induced by zero gravity chairs can help alleviate stress and anxiety, fostering a sense of calm and well-being.
  3. Lowering blood pressure: By promoting circulation and relaxation, zero gravity chairs contribute to lower blood pressure levels, reducing the risk of cardiovascular complications.
  4. Disease prevention: By addressing inflammation, zero gravity chairs aid in preventing various chronic diseases, including arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, and even certain types of cancer.
  5. Relief from existing conditions: Inflammation can be caused by several existing conditions, and zero gravity may help alleviate that inflammation. Zero gravity may provide arthritis pain relief or calm inflammation from fibromyalgia and sciatica.
