Abstract [en]

In this study, the habits of classical guitarists regarding ergonomics when applying a cushion of air, the so-called Dynair, is explored. The aim is to examine how classical guitarists are influenced by practicing with the Dynair. For six months, nine participants used a cushion of air to sit on when they were practicing. Through video analysis and semi-structured interviews, it is examined how the participants were affected ergonomically by the use of the Dynair. The conclusion is that the participants became more sedentary, yet more activated in the core muscles and lower back. The results indicate a slight trend that the participants developed a more upright posture and experienced upper back relaxation. After taking part in the study, the participants became more aware of ergonomics and playing positions.

Abstract [sv]

I studien utforskas klassiska gitarristers sittställning avseende ergonomi vid tillämpning av balansdyna. Syftet är att undersöka hur klassiska gitarrister påverkas av att öva när de sitter på en balansdyna. Nio deltagare har under sex månaders tid använt en dyna med luft, s.k. Dynair, att sitta på när de övat. Genom videoanalys och semistrukturerade intervjuer utforskas hur deltagarnas ergonomi påverkas av att använda balansdynan. Studiens slutsats är att deltagarna blir mer stillasittande men samtidigt mer aktiverade i coremuskulatur och nedre rygg. Resultaten visar en svag tendens till att deltagarna får en mer upprätt hållning och upplever avslappning i övre rygg. Efter studien hade deltagarna blivit mer medvetna om sin ergonomi och sin sittställning.
