Why Ergonomic Chairs?
We no longer live in a time where work is associated with strenuous physical labour. Today, most of us spend our time in the office, seated in front of a computer. While this at first may seem like a better thing for our health, the exact opposite is true. Millions of people today suffer from work-related health issues such as back and muscle pains, limb pains, eyestrain, to name a few. Most of those all-too-common ailments are because of poor posture brought on by using non-ergonomic chairs and desks.
With ergonomic chairs from Workers and Workstations, you can greatly improve your workplace ergonomics. This means you can prevent those health problems before they arise.
The key benefit of ergonomic chairs is that you can adjust them in multiple ways. Conventional chairs are limited in how you can adjust them: simply modifying a chair’s height or adjusting its backrest is not enough to promote better posture and health at work!
Ergonomic desk chairs allow adjustments to a person’s unique physique in multiple ways, attaining a healthy posture to minimise strain.
Ergonomic chairs usually play the most important role when it comes to improving workplace ergonomics. In some cases, a modern ergonomic chair may be all that you need to turn a workplace that would be hazardous to your health into a modern, ergonomic office environment.
Because ergonomic chairs are so essential for preventing work-related health issues today, it is our commitment at Workers and Workstations to provide the industry’s best and most affordable furniture for an ergonomic office.
Choosing the Right Ergonomic Desk Chair
Modern ergonomic chairs offer a large number of features that allow you to adjust them to a wide range of body shapes and sizes. On the other hand, simply buying an ergonomic chair is not enough. In order to get all the benefits of an ergonomic chair, you should know about the individual elements of the chair and how you can adjust them.
Here are some of the features you should look at when you choose an ergonomic chair:
The height of the seat must be adjustable in such a way that your knees are at a 90° angle with your feet resting flat on the ground. Almost any ergonomic seat today will allow you to adjust its height so you can achieve this easily.
Unlike most conventional chairs, an ergonomic chair’s back rest can be adjusted in multiple ways. You should be able to adjust the backrest’s height, angle and its distance from the seat. As a rule of thumb, it should be possible to adjust the backrest so that it mirrors the shape of your back.
When you put down your elbows to rest, they should also rest comfortably at a 90° angle from your body. Since the length of the upper arms can often vary from person to person, you will want armrests where you can adjust their height. Some ergonomic chairs also allow that you can adjust the distance between your arms.
While the above features are essentials that you can find with almost any ergonomic chair, there can be more features depending on the individual chair’s make and model.
Some chairs may allow you to tilt their seat and backrest. A tilting seat promotes a more natural seating position where the pelvis rests more comfortably. Other types of ergonomic chairs such as kneeling chairs or orthopaedic chairs are also available today.
No matter what your requirements are when it comes to ergonomic office seating, we at Workers and Workstations will help find the right chair for you. Should you have any questions about ergonomic chairs, don’t hesitate to contact us. We will be glad to assist you.
