Due to long hours at desk jobs, Americans spend more time than ever sitting down for extended periods of time. Since our bodies were not designed for a sedentary lifestyle, this creates a long list of grievances that sabotage health and productivity. Even when you aren’t in pain, static posture can lead to problems ranging from tight muscles and joints, lowered metabolism, back strain, and even damaged spinal discs.
Why an ergonomic office?Pressure, pain, and excess clutter can lead to poor organizational productivity. Ergonomic workstations offer effective solutions to these problems. The more time you spend sitting in front of a computer screen, the higher the odds that you develop problems like poor posture and eyestrain. This can domino into a host of other related problems. Poor spinal alignment increases pressure on the vertebrae, inhibiting blood flow, and causing neck and back pain. Headaches frequently follow eye fatigue, adding to the common yet avoidable aches that can happen due to poor ergonomics.
A proper workstation uses innovative design to help reduce and eliminate these common pains. Not only will such measures help prevent headaches and take pressure off of your back, but a well-designed workspace also improves your level of concentration and energy. When it comes to office ergonomics, our product consultants bring their expertise to help you plan the ideal office workstation to help you stay comfortable, alert, and safe from unwanted strain.
Ergonomic office essentials• Instead of sitting all day, invest in ergonomic office necessities such as a Stand Up Desk. A standing desk engages the muscles in the lower body, increases blood flow, and boosts concentration.
• Relieve your spine with an ergonomic office chair that offers lower back support. Proper support prevents painful curvature caused by chronic slouching and adjusts posture to the ideal neutral position. Correct alignment also increases oxygen flow previously cut off by shallow breathing.
• Repetitive keyboard motions can cause strain from the fingers to the shoulders, making keyboard trays a sound investment. Adjustable heights customize to individual needs and moveable mouse platforms cater to both right-handed and left-handed users.
• Combat eye, neck, and shoulder strain with monitor arms that cater to your comfort needs.
Awareness is keySmall adjustments add up to major differences. Whenever possible, take advantage of the extensive parks throughout Bellevue to work your muscles, get a change of scenery, and take in fresh air. When going outdoors isn’t an option, short 5-10 minute breaks to stretch and explore the office can counteract the negative effects of excessive sitting.
To experience more ease in your workday, plan a trip to your Bellevue Relax The Back location on 116th Avenue NE for a personal consultation on making ergonomic solutions that suit your needs.
