What is an Anti Gravity Chair/Zero Gravity chair?
Utilizing the same anti-gravity technology initially developed by NASA for astronauts. The 0 gravity chair mimics the position that an astronaut reclines into during take-off.
Distributing the weight evenly across the whole of the chair. The position allowed the astronauts to better withstand the forceful increase in gravity when leaving the Earth’s gravitational pull. While putting less stress onto their bodies.
By assuming this reclined position the astronaut can distribute the stress of lift off, across their whole body. In a safe manner.
An antigravity chair mimics this position of an astronaut in the lift off position.
The chair lifts the user’s legs into an elevated position. With the knees higher than or equal to the heart. This takes pressure off the spine and can allow for increased circulation throughout the body. It can also give the user virtually weightless feeling when reclined.
Zero gravity reclining chairs have now been manufactured to feature anywhere in the home. And there are variations available for use both indoors or out in the garden or on the patio.
The majority of gravity chairs can be either manually or automatically adjusted to conform to the user’s preference. This makes them highly customizable pieces of furniture that are great for relaxation.
A zero gravity recliner is designed with only the user’s comfort In mind. They allow anyone who may be using them to sit in a number of positions while providing great support and comfort.
A full range of positions are possible on a zero gravity chair, from reclining through to sitting upright.
Many anti-gravity chairs have numerous features that are adjustable to assist the user’s relaxation.
Many feature removable and adjustable headrests that can double as lumbar support if needed.
Most can also be locked into position and are easily adjustable and with the use of levers and buttons. This allows the chair to stay in a fixed recline position, when a preferable angle is found by the user.
Zero gravity chairs are also great choice of chair for environments outside of the home, including offices and studios. They are even a good choice to use in reflexology centers since they can provide such high levels of relaxation.
Zero gravity chairs are available in a range of styles and a variety of prices. Gravity recliners can also go by a number of different names such as an anti gravity chair, a 0 g chair, a no gravity chair or a gravity free chair.
The cheapest option for zero gravity relaxation is an outdoor zero gravity chair. Outdoor zero gravity recliners are manually operated by simply sitting in them and reclining.
Many of the outdoor anti-gravity chairs are lockable into a number of positions and are made from durable and weather resistant materials. They are also the cheapest zero gravity recliner chairs available.
You can also find a variety of outdoor zero gravity patio recliners in extra large variations. Also double width variants are available that can hold two people simultaneously.
Although the cheaper zero gravity chairs can be used indoors or out. There are a few more stylish options available for use indoors, around the home.
Many indoor zero gravity chairs are massage chairs. They can be finely adjusted to give the user a full body massage with just a touch of a button. Indoor zero gravity chairs are often designed to feature as a primary lounge chair. They are generally very good looking and stylishly upholstered for extra comfort.
Many indoor zero gravity chairs feature wooden armrests and legs. Showcasing a classical design which allows them to fit seamlessly into any room.
Indoor zero gravity chairs are more expensive than outdoor chairs, prices generally start at around $1000.
The Zero Gravity Position
While in a vertical seated position or when standing up. Gravity places force upon the spinal column causing the discs in your backbone to compress. This is known as Spinal Compression.
This makes the spinal muscles contract in order to assist you in preserving balance and stability. For anyone who suffers from back pain or discomfort, this is often particularly unpleasant and in some cases debilitating.
Whenever gravity is neutralized the muscles are able to relax. Allowing the spinal discs to return to their regular shape, size and configuration. This can Alleviate irritation as well as any pain or discomfort.
Sitting in the Zero Gravity Position is an ideal way to neutralize the effects of gravity.
Gravity is neutralized through aligning the body’s core with the thighs. While lifting the legs so that the knees are higher than or to a similar level of the position of your heart. This creates a 120 – 130 degree angular position between the mid-section and the thighs, helping to achieve correct spinal alignment.
With the absence of gravity, the spine no longer needs to compensate or fight the effects of gravity. Allowing the spinal column to decompress and the discs to return to their regular alignment and shape.
When gravity is reduced. The amount of stress and pressure being put upon the back and torso is also reduced. Allowing for more restful relaxation. As well as a number of other health benefits that aid your body’s well being.
Spinal compression is also one of the main reasons why the use of an inversion table on a regular basis, is worthwhile for many who suffer from back pain.
Since spinal compression is one of the more common causes of back pain. Using an inversion table is also a good way to reverse the forces of gravity.
The inversion process also allows the forces of gravity to work in your favor. Rather than just neutralize them by utilizing the zero gravity position.
If you are interested in inversion therapy or inversion tables. You can take a look at our comprehensive guide to inversion therapy here.
Why is it named the zero gravity position?
The idea of the zero gravity position first originated with NASA over 20 years ago. NASA’s scientists developed the technology initially to aid astronauts during take-off. With the view to reduce as much stress and pressure as possible on the skeletal system.
The position is also the natural position into which the body moves when experiencing floating in microgravity conditions. Such as those experienced when in a spacecraft in orbit.
In searching for the optimal position that an astronaut should assume during liftoff. Tests found that ideally the astronaut should be reclined into a position where their legs were elevated. When a 120 – 130 degree angle between the astronauts abdomen and thighs was present. It significantly lessened the amount of pressure exerted upon their bodies.
This allowed the astronauts to better deal with the significant increase in force. That is experienced while leaving the earth’s atmosphere.
While leaving the earth’s gravitational pull the reclined position was ideal, to position the astronaut in a more suitable manner. In which they could distribute their weight evenly across their whole body.
The zero gravity position alleviated the significant increase in stress caused by the extreme speed and reduced the amount of compressive force put upon the spinal column from the excessive velocity of the lift-off.

The Zero Gravity Position and the Benefits
Due to the relaxing, stress free nature of the position. The Zero Gravity Position has now been integrated into everyday living. In the form of a number of affordable patio furniture products. As well as a number of indoor zero gravity lounge chairs.
Allowing anyone access to healthy and rested relaxation whenever it is needed.
The combination of raising your knees above (or to the same levels as) the heart. And the even distribution of weight throughout the chair. Makes a zero gravity recliner a very ergonomic choice of chair to use in the home or garden.
It is also believed that being seated in this position may help improve or relieve certain health issues.
The zero gravity position is regularly promoted by medical experts. It is often recommended for those with heart problems since it promotes circulation. It can also reduce the strain put onto the heart and spine.
We would however suggest, if you do suffer from heart problems and are considering using a zero gravity chair. That you consult your doctor before purchase. To find out their opinion, if the zero gravity position may be beneficial to you.
We would also suggest you speak with your doctor if you suffer from a bad back or any other health issues, before trying a zero gravity chair. Just to be on the safe side.
Some of the key health benefits that may be improved using zero gravity reclining chairs are:
- Reduction of Pressure upon the spine
- Increased blood oxygen levels & circulation
- Reduction of strain on the heart
- Increased lung capacity and improved respiration
- Decreased muscle tension
- Increased neck and back relaxation
- Reduction in joint pressure
- Improved Circulation in the legs reducing swelling
- Prevention of conditions such as varicose veins

Zero Gravity Chair Health Benefits
When compared to many of the different types of outdoor and indoor furniture out there. An ergonomic zero gravity chair is a great choice.
Zero gravity chairs are not only comfortable and pleasurable to sit in. The chairs are also renowned for their ability to potentially help improve certain health aspects.
Take a look below at some of the health benefits that may be improved using zero gravity relaxation.
Please note: Although the use of a zero gravity chair may be highly beneficial to anyone that suffers from back pain. If you have had any surgery upon your back you should consult your physician before using an anti-gravity chair.
As with all ergonomically designed furniture. A zero gravity chair must be accurately altered in order to be efficient and advantageous.
Also if you suffer from any other medical conditions. It is advised that you speak to your doctor first to see if a zero gravity chair is a good choice for you.
At My Zero Gravity Chairs we are not medical professionals. The content on this website is informational and should not be used in place of professional medical advice.
It is also worth noting that since health problems vary a great deal from person to person. Using an anti gravity chair may help ease or relieve one individuals health issues, however it may not be a benefit to everyone.
You should also remember to be fairly realistic with your expectations, while many (including ourselves) have found using a no gravity recliner a relaxing and beneficial way to relax. Do not expect any miraculous changes in your health, particularly if you have any pre-diagnosed health problems.
Much like when using an inversion table, a zero gravity recliner is likely to only provide temporary relief. It is highly unlikely that using a gravity chair will completely rid you of any health issues you may have.
Reduction of Pressure upon the spine
The first and most well-known health benefit of the chair, is the alleviation of pressure put upon the spine.
It is clear that after a long day of standing up or sitting in an upright position, that the effects of gravity really can take their toll. Compressing the discs of your spinal column. This can lead to back and muscle pain as you attempt to counteract the force of gravity.
Surprisingly many standard mattresses are unable to conform to your body shape, even when lead flat on a bed. There are areas of your body that are still subjected to pressure.
When using a zero gravity recliner your body is perfectly cradled into a position that distributes your weight evenly across your body. This then helps your spine to achieve its correct alignment.
Once in the zero gravity position the compression of the spine and vertebrae is reduced.
Neutralizing the gravitational pressure leads to a neutral body position. Allowing the discs of the spinal column to recover back to their regular shape and size.
Increasing of blood oxygen levels & circulation, helping reduce the strain on the heart
When you are in a standing or upright position. The heart is always working harder since it is fighting against gravity, in an effort to pump blood back to the heart from your lower body.
In the zero gravity position your heart is able to pump blood more effortlessly. Especially from the legs that are in a raised position. With the knees at a level higher than the heart in a more horizontal body position.
Oxygenated blood is working with the force of gravity rather than against it. Allowing it to flow more quickly and efficiently thanks to the increased circulation.
Increased lung capacity and improved respiration
The zero gravity reclined position allows pressure upon the spine to be eased. This in turn, allows the lungs to become fully expandable. As they are giving more space due to the decrease in pressure put upon the diaphragm.
As previously mentioned, this allows the blood to oxygenate with less effort. And over time can increase the functionality of the lungs.
Decreased muscle tension
Throughout the day no matter what we are doing gravity puts pressure upon our lower back. Even when sat upright at a desk or when slumped on the sofa.
When upright, the muscles around the spine are always active. To compensate for the compression of the spine. Working and adjusting in order to keep you balanced.
When in the neutral body posture that zero gravity chairs provide. The muscles are freed from the pressure of everyday tasks. This allows them to relax completely. Helping to allow for the oxygen rich blood to rejuvenate them.
Increased neck and back relaxation
Divided into three regions the spine naturally has an “S” shaped curve. However this can soon turn into more of a “C” shape over time. Especially when sat at a desk for long periods throughout the day.
A zero gravity chair is designed to support the natural curvature of the spine. Removing the pressure from the lower and upper back as well as the neck.
When the spine is placed in a neutral position, it frees the back and neck from pain and tension. Since the forces of gravity no longer have any affect upon it.
Other health benefits of the zero gravity position include:
- Reduction in joint pressure
- Promotes Circulation in the legs helping to reducing swelling
- Help in prevention of conditions such as varicose veins

While you could of course use an outdoor zero gravity patio chair in your home. Some may prefer a piece of furniture that looks more suitable in a living area or study. The one downside to many indoor zero gravity chairs is that some of them are rather bulky. Unlike outdoor chairs they are often not very easy to move around.

How much are you prepared to spend on a chair?
Many of the best outdoor zero gravity recliners are very affordable. Although depending on the make or model and the size of the chair the price can vary somewhat.
In some cases certain larger models are slightly more expensive. However, it is unlikely you are going to pay more than a few hundred dollars. Even for a top quality outdoor zero gravity recliner chair.
Even if you opt for an XL, oversized patio recliner chair. Or set of 2 anti gravity chairs it is unlikely in most cases that you will spend in excess of a couple of hundred dollars. Generally outdoor anti gravity chairs are able to be replaced every few years. Without putting a huge dent in your wallet, should natural wear and tear take effect.
For an indoor zero gravity chair the price is often in excess of $1000 for a standard chair. Also depending on the number of features the chair has this can go up to a few thousand dollars. Especially for a technology filled top of the line zero gravity massage chair with full zero gravity massage positioning.
While the price may seem a lot to some. These chairs are a great option if you want to have your own personal masseuse on call 24/7.
Shape and Size
If you are on the larger or tall side. A standard recliner may not be the best option for you. However, manufactures have now made many of their standard chairs into extra large and oversized zero gravity chair models.
On average the standard variation of the zero gravity chair can hold up to around 300 lbs. XL variations of the chair are often able to hold up to around 50 lbs more weight. They also feature a wider seat area.
As we always suggest, make sure you read our product descriptions and the zero gravity chair reviews. Also be sure to also check the dimensions of the chair. The gravity chair reviews are a great way to see what other larger people have said about the chair you are considering buying.
When it comes to the zero gravity massage chairs, body size and weight are not really an issue. Zero G massage chairs often feature body scan technology. allowing the chair to adjust to the users body shape.
