Ergonomic Office Furniture: For Your Health
Many work-related health conditions plague the modern office worker, and are worsened by inferior office furniture. Even otherwise healthy people can find themselves with needless aches and pains because of it. Then there are the more serious back and neck complaints, which can affect your daily life. However, ergonomic office furniture is here to help!
More people are using ergonomic office furniture to help improve their physical health, which leads to improved energy levels and morale. The main two types of ergonomic office furniture the modern era offers are ergonomic desks, also known as sit/stand desks or height adjustable desks, as well as ergonomic office chairs.
Ergonomic Office Furniture: Desks
Proven to aid people with back problems, improve blood circulation, and burn more calories, ergonomic desks are better for you than regular desks. Sit/stand desks allow their users to work while seated or standing. Using either a manual handle, or an electric mechanism via a touch pad, the desk's height adjusts to your needs.
Various sizes, styles, and finishes are available for these height adjustable desks. Accessories are also available to help customise your work-space, including screens, cable management, and monitor arms. Check out our innovative new range of Bench-style Sit/Stand Desks, or convert your standard desk into an ergonomic work-space with our new sit/stand converters!
While ergonomic desks are great on their own, they only form half the ideal ergonomic tag team. If at all possible, we recommend you add an ergonomic office chair too.
Ergonomic Office Furniture: Chairs
Generally more expensive than your standard office chairs, ergonomic office chairs are well worth considering in the long run. Industry leading ergonomic office chairs, such as the Ergohuman chair, and the Enjoy chair, are as adjustable as they come, meaning you are sure to find a setting that suits your specific body shape, weight, and size. Furthermore, they last longer, with the Ergohuman and Enjoy coming with a manufacturer's guarantee of between three and ten years! This shows the confidence the manufacturers have in their product, and the quality of the materials used in their construction.
While an ergonomic office is not essential, providing you lead a healthy lifestyle, it helps you to maintain your health. This applies to everybody from young, healthy people, to older people with health issues. Furthermore, the longer you sit in a sub-par chair, at a standard desk, the more ailments you can develop.
