Marisa Cole. Chair. October 14th , 2017.
Task chairs - these are the normal everyday office furniture chairs that most people use at home. These can be very cheap, acquired at your local discount store for under $30, or can be ten times this amount for a good one that will last awhile. These can be cloth, leather (real or fake) or made of other man made materials. Many will have ergonomic features such as lumbar support, and are also adjustable in multiple ways. Most of us can find a task chair that will suit our daily use, you just have to take the time to try out a fair number of them to discover what will work best for you.
One of the coolest beach chairs that I came across is by Natural Access, and helps bring difficult terrain to people who use wheel chairs or have difficulty navigating uneven surfaces. It is called the Natural Access Landeez All-Terrain Wheelchair. Designed for outdoor use, it gives freedom for people who use wheelchairs to explore, to enjoy days at the beach or outdoor on dirt trails. It has large, oversized all-terrain wheels that absorb the shock for a comfortable ride. The fabric is tear and water resistant so that it can get wet, allowing you to truly enjoy the water, plus it folds down and can be partially disassembled for easy transport and storage.
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.
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?
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!
