Support NF Forward with Your Next Embody

For the next 6 months, MarxModa will be donating $10 for every Embody Task Chair sold to support NF Forward.

November 2, 2020

Created to minimize the negative effects of sitting by designers Jeff Weber and the late Bill Stumpf, the Embody is the result of decades of painstaking design research. It sets the benchmark for pressure distribution, natural alignment, and support for healthy movement in ergonomic seating. Designed with the input of more than 30 physicians and PhDs in biomechanics, vision, physical therapy, and ergonomics, the chair remains a favorite among ergonomists and serious sitters.

As part of our commitment to making a difference in our community, MarxModa will use sales of this dynamic product to raise money and awareness for NF Forward. NF Forward is an organization that aims to accelerate a cure for Neurofibromatosis, a genetic nerve disorder affecting nearly 3 million people worldwide. It was founded in 2017 by Dan and Jennifer Gilbert whose son Nick was born with NF1.

Neurofibromatosis causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body and may lead to deafness, blindness, disfigurement, disabling pain, cancer, and learning disabilities. It affects one in every 3,000 people—more than cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and Huntington’s disease combined. NF affects all populations equally, and there is not yet a cure.

MarxModa has been an enthusiastic supporter of the work of NF Forward, with members of our team attending NF Forward’s signature beNeFit gala held at TCF Center in downtown Detroit every November. We are pleased to give our partners the ability to support the groundbreaking, cutting-edge research NF Forward funds. With the purchase of your next Embody Chair, you can contribute to finding a cure for Neurofibromatosis.
