If you sit behind a desk for hours at a time, it might be time for a workstation makeover. Prolonged sedentary work compresses the spine, quickly leading to painful complications like back pain and poor circulation. Even when you might not feel physical discomfort, excessive sitting reduces your body’s energy expenditure and prevents you from engaging in light physical activities. Take an outdoor stroll to stretch your legs and remind yourself why Coral Gables is called “The City Beautiful.” For those hours that must be spent working indoors, an ergonomically smart workspace can help solve a host of pain-related problems before they occur.
Why an Ergonomic Office?Comfortable employees are productive employees, but the typical office environment does not always take ergonomic risks into account. Inefficient workstations force workers to adapt to technologies, leaving both companies and workers to bear the resulting costs of poor spinal health, mounting inactivity, and decreased productivity. Meanwhile, companies that invest in ergonomic workplaces see a return on their investment by designing technology to suit the worker’s needs. This leads to increased worker productivity, fewer sick days, reduced workers’ compensation costs, and greater worker loyalty.
Working at a computer might not be as obviously strenuous on physical health as hard labor jobs, but this can present an even greater challenge when it comes to pain prevention. When pain is caused by common behaviors like slouching at your desk during a long day, the problematic behavior often goes overlooked until it develops into more painful and serious musculoskeletal problems. Our representatives have expertise in ergonomic office design to help assist you with solutions like greater lumbar support so you can work more comfortably.
Ergonomic Office EssentialsThe best ergonomic office products work as parts of a whole to offer relief and comfort to the user.
• Combat the damaging effects of prolonged sitting with an adjustable Standing Desk for greater workplace versatility. Increased circulation, revived metabolism, greater mental alertness, and less stress on the spine are just a few of the benefits of a stand up desk.
• Enhance comfort, boost circulation, and encourage leg activity with footrests. Footrests also shift weight distribution to prevent you from rounding your spine, relieving pressure from the back and lower extremities.
• Reduce visual fatigue and strain in the neck and shoulders with monitor arms and laptop raisers that allow for easy height, angle, and distance adjustments.
• 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.
Awareness Is KeyIt isn’t always possible to eliminate every incidence of poor ergonomic behavior, but increasing awareness can help keep pain at bay. Whether you’re adding simple office yoga stretches to your day, investing in an ergonomic office chair with lumbar support, or taking walking breaks underneath the green canopies of Coral Gables’ tree-lined avenues, making time for movement and proper alignment is the cure for what ails you. Plan a visit to Relax The Back Coral Gables on Miracle Mile for a personal assessment with our product consultants. A more productive, happier, and more comfortable work experience is within reach.
