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.
Table Top Trouble: A proper table is as important as the right chair. Your office may have ergonomic chairs for back pain, but if your table does not have the correct height for working, adjusting your chair may do little to help you find a comfortable and healthy position.
Ergonomically planned chairs are noticeably more costly than usual office chairs, but should be considered a business investment, as they promote productivity, which means greater income for the business.
Office Furniture Chairs Come In Many Styles: Office furniture chairs come in all sizes, shapes, designs and materials. And though desks have been around for hundreds of years, in one form or another, the modern office chair was first used in the mid to late 1800's. The closest thing to a modern office chair was used by Charles Darwin. He put wheels on his chair so that he could move around easier when reaching for his specimens. Since that time, and especially during the 1900's, the office chair has evolved a lot. Here are some of the types of office furniture chairs that can be found in most offices today.
Back to the Chair: On your ergonomic office chair, it is important to remember that you need to use it properly to reap the benefits. If it is adjustable, adjust it to where it is able to support your lower and mid back. A head-rest may be there to help you support your head and keep you from assuming a forward head carriage position. If there are armrests, use them. If your shoulders are rolling forward, learn to bring them close to the backrest of your chair. Remember, the way you use your body affects the way you live, and learning desk ergonomics can help you live a healthier lifestyle!
