Beyond the Chair: Office Ergonomics for a Healthier You: Are you one of the lucky ones to use one of those chairs for posture support? Or perhaps an adjustable office chair? If your answer is yes, at the end of the day, do you still experience neck and back pain? Do your shoulders still crouch forward, and your neck still stretched forward while working?
Ergonomically Office Chairs! If you spend a lot of your time sitting, then you could have advantage from an ergonomically designed office chair. Even if you own a home office, it is still vital to have the good chair, if you do not want to have to deal with back pain. Ergonomic office chairs are designed to give good support to the body, helping to avoid and decrease pain caused by sitting, especially with improper posture. You will be more productive and able to work more without having to worry about ache in your back, neck and shoulders caused by sitting in the incorrect chair for long periods of time.
Mesh chairs - I first saw a mesh chair about 15 years ago, though I suppose they have been around a bit longer than that. These are basically task or executive chairs that have a mesh back. Most are still fully adjustable and ergonomic, but the mesh back provides great ventilation and breathability. Some even have mesh seats!
Wood chairs - these were found a lot before modern office furniture chairs became an ergonomic science, but the can still be found today. However, they usually only swivel and rise up and down and are not ergonomic in other ways.
If on the second question you still said yes, then you may not be using your chair properly. When you buy office chair, there should be no expectation that it will magically make everything right. The chair, while providing comfort, should be used in such a way that you are able to take advantage of the ergonomic features and advantages that it brings. If after changing your chair, you have not changed the way you sit, or perhaps have not adjusted other aspects of your work environment, then, you won’t be able to take full advantage of the health benefits your chair can give you.
