Do you suffer from back, neck and shoulder pains?
Do you sit at a desk all day?
Ever thought that your office chair could be the reason?
A lot of us don’t realise by making the simple step of changing our office chair to an ergonomic office chair it can improve and eliminate these symptoms.
Here are 6 benefits of having an ergonomic chair:
1. They support your posture:
Traditional office chairs can be the main reason that people have incorrect posture while sitting at their desk. An ergonomic office chair takes these problems into consideration. With many features which can include head rests and back rests that support your posture while sitting. You can also adjust the height to sit with your feet flat on the floor, knees at an angle of 90 degrees to the floor and parallel to the hips. These corrections automatically help you to improve your posture.
2. They are more comfortable:
Ergonomic office chairs are more comfortable than normal office chairs because they are user-friendly. You can adjust all the features individually to fit your needs until you’re totally comfortable using the various mechanisms. (Add link to Mechanisms Blog)
3. They reduce the risk of neck problems:
Without a neck support for a long time while sitting, you’ll develop stiffness in your neck and shoulder region. This can even lead to complications like cervical spondylosis. Some of our Ergonomic chairs have a headrest that supports your head and neck even when you want to stretch out. This is an especially good feature for people who work in call centres or are just simply on the phone often.
4. They reduce the risk of back pain:
Ergonomic chairs come with a backrest which has an optional adjustable lumbar support which retains the natural curve of your spine. Unlike traditional chairs, ergonomic chairs are high enough to support the entire back. Some ergonomic chairs come with a reclining function that allows you to rest at an angle greater than 90 degrees.
5. They reduce the pressure on your hips:
Normal chairs have a hard surface. So when you sit, the seat exerts extra pressure on your hip region. An ergonomic chair has a good seat depth that which can be adjusted accordingly to support the hips and buttocks. Some of our ergonomic office chairs also come with a Split Density(Add link to Split Density Blog) seat which incorporates two levels of firmness – both constructed from durable, CFC-free moulded polyurethane foam which provide differing deflection characteristics, encouraging an anatomically correct posture, to reduce backache and muscle fatigue normally associated with the ‘slump posture’ often seen in foam-based seats. The Split Density foam can even be supplied with a cut-away shape for the coccyx, allowing the tail bone to comfortably ‘float’.
The gradual transitional slope opens the pelvis and also creates a negative tilt, which improves blood flow to the legs.
Clinically proven enhancements in blood and oxygen flow as a result of postural change can help aid concentration levels and improve overall office efficiency.
6. They make working easy:
All the features of an ergonomic chair are adjustable to accommodate different activities you may perform at your work desk. It also has a swivel feature that enables the user to move around swiftly without having to get up from the seat or without the need to extend and strain.
