Bryn Mawr / Office
The human body simply isn't meant to sit in one position for hours at a time. Whether you’re working in an office or study at Bryn Mawr College, lengthy sitting is simply unnatural for your body. With Americans spending an average 56 hours a week sitting down, it is no wonder so many suffer from chronic back pain. Combating the stresses and pressures of sitting is easy: go ergonomic! Updating your office setup to include an ergonomic office chair or a standing desk can help you stay active and healthy while you work.
The Benefits of an Ergonomic OfficeWe work better when we're comfortable. Minimizing pressure on the vertebrae promotes blood flow to the brain, helping you stay focused and productive. In fact, a recent study has shown that companies with ergonomic workstations report a 40% increase in worker productivity! With less pain experienced throughout the day, it's easier to get work done and focus on the important things in life. You'll find that with an ergonomic workstation, many of the common aches and pains you experience (such as headaches, neck and shoulder pain, and of course back pain) vanish. It all comes down to minimizing pressure on your body and promoting healthy blood flow, and that's precisely what ergonomic office furniture accomplishes.
The Right Pieces for YouThe best ergonomic office products feel like they were designed just for you. That’s because they are designed to promote your natural posture. If you have a specific type of pain you're looking to relieve or just want to have more productive and comfortable days, there are a few different ergonomic products that may help:
• Standing desks are one of our most popular ergonomic office products, and for good reason! Standing up to stretch is a great way to relieve tension, and our standing desks allow you to keep working while you stand. Changing from sitting to standing throughout the day helps break up the prolonged sitting that causes pain, fatigue, and stress.
• The chair you sit in plays a huge role in how well your body handles extended sitting. Investing in an ergonomic office chair will ensure that your chair doesn't place undue pressure on your spine and worsen your pain. You'll experience a healthier back with an ergonomic chair that conforms to the natural shape of your spine.
• When computer monitors are not at eye level, you crane your neck into uncomfortable positions. Wall or desk-mounted monitor arms are an easy solution to this problem. With your computer monitor ergonomically lifted to perfect eye level, you'll be able to sit more comfortably while minimizing pressure on your neck and shoulders. •
The Benefits of Going Ergonomic Are ClearYour current workstation may be causing you exhaustion, pain, and discomfort. The most effective way to combat this discomfort is to stand up and move. Taking breaks are important for your health and help you stay productive. An ergonomic office setup will also help you find pain relief and increased productivity.
