Abstract [en]

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

Abstract [sv]

I studien utforskas klassiska gitarristers sittställning avseende ergonomi vidtillämpning av balansdyna. Syftet är att undersöka hur klassiska gitarristerpåverkas av att öva när de sitter på en balansdyna. Nio deltagare har under sexmånaders tid använt en dyna med luft, s.k. Dynair, att sitta på när de övat. Genomvideoanalys och semistrukturerade intervjuer utforskas hur deltagarnas ergonomipåverkas av att använda balansdynan. Studiens slutsats är att deltagarna blir merstillasittande men samtidigt mer aktiverade i coremuskulatur och nedre rygg.Resultaten visar en svag tendens till att deltagarna får en mer upprätt hållning ochupplever avslappning i övre rygg. Efter studien hade deltagarna blivit mermedvetna om sin ergonomi och sin sittställning.
