How to improve hotel and pub gaming safety? Better gaming stools
If you’ve ever had a backache from sitting in an uncomfortable chair or attempting to move something heavy, you’re not alone. Back pain is one of the most common health problems in Australia, currently afflicting almost a fifth of the population. It’s estimated that between 70 and 90 per cent of people will experience lower back pain at some point during their life, according to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.
Back pain is one of the most common health problems in Australia, currently afflicting 16 per cent of the population.
One of the issues that has always plagued pub and hotel owners is clients leaving because they are uncomfortable or in pain, according to the Global Gaming Business Magazine. So how can pub and hotel owners ensure customer safety and comfort?
Back problems and gaming
In order to withstand near constant use, pokie stools are built to be sturdy and quite heavy. While this is good for the longevity of the stool, it can pose a problem for customers with back problems who are trying to move the chair around – if they hurt themselves, the chances of them sticking around and continuing to play are slim.
Customers are also at risk of experiencing back pain by sitting in an uncomfortable stool for an extended period of time, as spinal pressure can build up rapidly. When the spine goes from the natural S-shape to a C-shape, the pressure on the lumbar discs increases by over 50 per cent, according to back pain expert Sarah Key.
The best way to ensure your customers’ health and comfort is by investing in quality pokie stools that are specifically designed to be easy to move, easy to swivel and comfortable to sit in.
