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?
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.
There are many office chairs now being produced that are intended to work well for people who already have back injury or strain. These chairs can offer new positions that can limit strain on already bothersome areas, while still allowing the person to work efficiently.
Head and Lumbar Support: The lumbar and head support on the Ekornes recliner are designed to work in parallel, moving with you as you recline the chair. The headrest can both lay flat or stay up, depending on a simple, manual adjustment.
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.
