Regular Sunloungers VS Zero Gravity Sun Loungers

October 13, 2022 4 min read

Chaise lounges are one of the most common pieces of outdoor furniture available today. They are the perfect addition to any outdoor setting such as patios, backyards, gardens, balconies and poolside. A good recliner garden chair is the preferred spot for many people to lounge around in the sun. But with more and more garden furniture available, you may have a hard time making the best choice. So we'll compare two of the most popular types of garden furniture - recliners and zero gravity chairs - to understand the differences and thus help you make the best choice.

What is a sunlounger?
Sunloungers, sometimes called recliners, are located between the chair and the bed. They usually have an adjustable backrest with a comfortable headrest and a sun lounger that can be combined with a footstool, perfect for relaxing moments. They also offer a flat position and a multi-position reclining backrest, with options for sunbathing or napping while stretching your legs. Garden recliners are generally more stylish and comfortable than outdoor folding chairs. For moments of relaxation, the recliner is a great choice and works well both indoors and outdoors. Depending on its use, the folding model is preferable because it is not only easy to move around, but it also has the advantage of being easy to store and saves space once the summer season is over.


What is a zero gravity sun lounger?
Although they look similar to recliner chairs for outdoors, zero gravity reclining garden chairs do differ and offer some unique advantages. These chairs get their name because of their ability to tilt you backwards while you remain in the same seating position. Once your feet reach a height higher than your heart, much of the gravitational pressure is reduced, which can make you feel more relaxed. The technology and concept behind this zero gravity recliner was developed by NASA by observing how astronauts' bodies relax in a zero gravity environment. With the zero gravity sun loungers, you can suspend yourself in a position where no force is applied to your body. There are many positions in which this can be done and with the zero gravity recliner you can choose the position that suits you best.

Comfortable Zero Gravity Sun Loungers

The difference between them:
Traditional recliners and zero-gravity recliners each have different characteristics, so the experience is very different. To get a clear idea of which options are best for you, let's explore these differences between recliners and zero gravity recliners.

  • Durability:When you invest in furniture, you definitely want to make sure that you are getting the highest quality furniture that is built to last. Traditional folding beach chairs concentrate pressure in certain areas, causing them to wear out faster in odd places. In addition, if you sit for long periods of time (watch out for ways to prevent sedentary pain) or sleep in a traditional recliner, then your recliner simply won't be able to withstand this wear and tear. Instead, many zero gravity sun loungers are designed to take more weight and thus make sagging cushions (a problem often experienced with regular recliners) a thing of the past. Because your weight is evenly distributed when you recline in a zero gravity chair, there is less concentrated pressure in any particular area. By design alone, this further enhances the durability of the chair.
  • Comfort:Most recliner garden chairs just recline. While they are comfortable, so, of course, are zero-gravity recliners, while offering much more. For sunbathing, especially for tanning backs, a sun lounger that lays flat is ideal, something you can't do better in a zero gravity chair. But a good zero gravity chair releases more pressure on the joints than a recliner and makes the whole body feel great. Both will allow you to relax in the garden and, ultimately, it is down to personal preference and use.
  • Health benefit:The zero gravity posture allows the spine to decompress, improves heart health through increased blood circulation and improves sleep quality. This also allows the zero gravity reclining garden chairs to heal your body more effectively than a regular sun lounger. In the zero gravity position, the spine elongates as it recovers from the daily effects of gravity. This reduces the pressure on the sciatic nerve. On the one hand, when the legs are raised above heart level in the neutral position, blood flows more efficiently to the extremities and back again. This provides oxygen and nutrients for the whole body. The smooth flow of blood lowers blood pressure and reduces the work of the heart. On the other hand, it enables the body to relax more fully, thus improving the quality of sleep. As the body relaxes, it is able to heal faster. In fact, just 20 minutes a day in the zero gravity position is equivalent to the back repair that takes place during 8-10 hours of sleep.

Both of these recliners allow you to relax in the garden, and ultimately, it comes down to personal preference. But overall, zero gravity recliners can offer more health benefits, greater comfort, extra features and longer lasting durability. Whatever you choose, make sure the chaise lounge you choose can really stay outdoors and is easy to maintain, which means you can enjoy more time outdoors.
