The modern office space has confined us to our office chairs for far too long. Studies have suggested that sitting “is the new smoking,” and that prolonged sitting can actually reduce your lifespan. Sitting in one position for prolonged periods of time puts a lot of pressure on the spine, increasing aches and pains throughout the day. This seemingly small, daily discomforts can accumulate into major health issues. Diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and even cancer have been linked to a sedentary lifestyle. If you want your Addison office experience to be more comfortable and more productive, then ergonomic office furniture can help counteract the serious damage done by staying seated.
Ergonomics to the RescueImproper ergonomics might not sound like a huge problem until you start listing all the potential symptoms: headaches, eye fatigue and strain, spinal curvature, poor circulation, and swelling and numbness of the legs. These nagging maladies all contribute to the decline in energy and focus that manifest as poor performance from depleted employees.
But there is hope. Companies that offer ergonomic workstations report a 40% improvement in organizational productivity. Creating a comfortable, ergonomic office promotes neutral posture that aligns the vertebrae and alleviates disc pressure and muscle pain while promoting healthy blood flow. It only takes a few key elements to create an ergonomic workstation that your workdays more manageable and fruitful.
Your Ergonomic Workspace AwaitsIt doesn’t take much to insert more ergonomically friendly activities and habits into your day. Here are a few tips and suggestions from our consultants to banish lethargy and keep employees healthy.
- A standing desk alleviates stress on the back and legs and improves circulation, freeing your body and your brain to focus on the task at hand. Many standing desk converts also report greater core strength after kissing their office chairs goodbye!
• If you need to have a seat, our standing desks adjust quickly and quietly to a seated desk at the push of a button. Sitting is far less detrimental to the spine when you have an ergonomic office chair to support your lumbar, arms, and legs properly. Relax The Back chairs are built to conform to your body, not vice-versa, ensuring you’re in the best position to do your job efficiently.
• It’s easy to forget about your legs when you’re sitting all day, but a raised footrest can counteract the negative effects of sitting. Rocking footrests prevent you from sitting in the same static position all day, ensuring healthy circulation and increased energy.
• Monitor arms and laptop raisers make sure your monitor, laptop or tablet is at the proper height and distance, relieving stress to your eyes and neck.
• A wide variety of keyboard trays not only provide proper ergonomic support for your arms and hands but also allow for easy, clean storage of your keyboard and mouse. An ergonomic perfect workspace that works in tandem with taking regular breaks, staying hydrated, and moving when possible will keep you refreshed and energized throughout the day.
