Ergonomics is the study of designs that suit the human body, its movements and its interacting environment. Ergonomically designed office furniture will achieve 2 main goals:
This has been confirmed in numerous scientific studies, with the most recent showing that the ergonomics of a workspace are highly correlated to:
- Job performance
- Job satisfaction
- Employee wellbeing
With a typical employee spending upwards of 7 hours a day in their office chair - the most important aspect of an ergonomic office is the seat. With that in mind, it makes good financial and practical sense to view the office chair as an investment in your staff and company.
An effective office chair enhances posture, relieves spinal pressure and reduces back and neck pains. We offer a wide range of chairs that satisfy different body shapes, job types and working environments.
Our chairs differ in material composition, type of mechanism and adjustment controls. We offer 4 types of chair mechanisms and a number of different adjustment controls across our range. One type of chair mechanism is not necessarily better than another. Rather, they’re suited to different people and types of work. Similarly, a chair doesn’t need to have all the adjustment controls to be a good ergonomic choice. A chair should be chosen based on the ability for a user to interact comfortably with their working environment.
Even though you should aim to be in the most ergonomically correct position for the majority of your time seated, it is not healthy to maintain the same position for long hours. You should temporarily change positions, stretch or allow the chair to be in free-recline to relieve some muscles and activate others.
Please don’t hesitate to find the perfect chair for yourself or your company by visiting our showroom and testing them out.
