Is "comfort" one of the first things that come to mind when thinking about your office? If not, you're not the only one. The average American spends almost 56 hours each week sitting. This leads to discomfort, fatigue, and more serious health problems down the line. The human body just isn't meant to sit down for such a large part of the day. Fortunately for the stressed and cramped office workers of Colorado Springs, relief can be found by implementing a few changes to your workday. You can start by upgrading your old workstation setup to an ergonomic one that will minimize pressure on your spine.
How Ergonomics WorkIt's not magic, but it may feel like it after your first experience working from an ergonomic office setup. When you start to feel cramped after sitting for a prolonged duration, standing up to stretch, walk down the street to get lunch (assuming it's not snowing too hard), or even just stretching your arms out while you let your back relax usually relieves some of the tension. Ordinary chairs and desks forces your back into uncomfortable positions that place undue pressure on your vertebrae, restricting blood flow through the rest of your body and causing feelings of discomfort, lethargy, and fatigue. A personally tailored office setup designed by our ergonomic product consultants will help you alleviate pressure on your spine, promote healthy blood flow, and allow you to get through the day without any pain!
Some of Our Favorite PiecesWhile each piece of an ergonomic office works to create a more comfortable and healthy workspace, the magic lies in how they work together to create a completely ergonomic experience. Here are a few of our most popular ergonomic office essentials:
• Standing desks are one of our most popular ergonomic office solutions. With easily adjustable height, standing desks allow you to relieve tension in your back by standing up while working. Standing also increases circulation, resulting in increased mental alertness and less fatigue.
• While standing desks help you minimize the amount of time you spend sitting, it's still important to make sure you sit with great posture. Our ergonomic office chairs help support "neutral posture" by gently conforming to the natural S shape of your spine. By cushioning your back properly, the right ergonomic chair will minimize pressure to your spine and help you enjoy a more productive and pain-free workday.
• Footrests are an important part of a complete ergonomic office. Raised footrests relieve stress to your lower back and legs, allowing you to sit back in your ergonomic chair instead of slouching forward.
