If you are looking to replace the seating in your office, it would be well advised to look at replacing it with ergonomic furniture.
The benefits of ergonomic chairs have been making waves around the industry, and it is easy to see why.
Numerous Health Benefits
It is a great idea to outfit your office with ergonomic furniture, if only for the multiple health benefits. Regular office chairs can be rather stiff, and they can really do a number on your back and spine. Ergonomic chairs protect your spine, and they promote proper posture for those who sit in them.
The proper way to sit in a chair is with your feet flat on the floor and with your knees at an angle of 90 degrees and parallel to your hips. Sitting in an ergonomic chair help the employee to sit correctly without even trying.
Sitting correctly in an ergonomic chair can also do wonders for the health of your neck. If you sit for a long period of time in a non-ergonomic chair, you could develop stiffness in your neck and shoulders. Proper ergonomic chairs have a headrest that supports these regions, a benefit that is particularly helpful in employees who take phone calls all day.
Quality ergonomic chairs force the employee to sit in a proper position which in turn promotes productivity. Uncomfortable, pain-ridden employees tend to slack off and spend more time out of their chairs. Ergonomic chairs can put the employee at ease, so work is the number one priority. On the flip side, if chairs are lacking proper back support, employees could find themselves leaning back more often and thus feeling more lethargic than they would when sitting up.
