Zody is also the first product to be certified at the gold level in the MBDC Cradle to Cradle certification program. To provide maximum comfort, Zody features an asymmetrical lumbar support system, which research showed was the type of support preferred by most users. It also has four-way adjustable arms, a sliding seat, three-point tilt mechanism and a gel seat option that lowers pressure on the hips and lower back.
