When it comes to performing your best at the office, your workstation plays a major role. Numerous studies have shown that sitting too much takes a toll on our health and productivity. Even for those who exercise regularly, sitting too much is bad for you. Increased pressure on the spine commonly leads to back pain, and reduced blood flow yields extensive decline in our vascular health. In conjunction with activities like taking a walk to your favorite local Irvine lunch spot, a proper ergonomic office setup will help you battle the bad back blues during the hours you must spend at work.
Why an Ergonomic Office?If CEOs had the option between leading a lethargic, distracted, unproductive team or a more alert, lucid, efficient team, which one should they choose? Obviously the latter is preferred, but unfortunately the average workplace only offers workstations that create the former. Forcing workers into unnatural postures for prolonged periods yields problems like headaches, strained muscles, eyestrain, poor circulation, and chronic pain in the back, neck, and shoulders––and all of this means lower productivity and higher healthcare costs for businesses. Finding simple solutions through design can help minimize these issues.
Ergonomics is about designing a workplace so that the user can interact with their environment efficiently. Without conscious attention to ergonomic design, companies often force workers to interact with objects in a way that compromises their health and productivity. This ultimately results in costing the company money and the worker their health. Our specially trained representatives can offer solutions to common workstation challenges.
Ergonomic Office EssentialsErgonomic devices operate as parts of a whole to offer both form and function to the user.
• Take a stand for your health by investing in a Standing Desk. Studies show that less prolonged sitting leads to improved functional capacity of muscles, bones, and tendons. Sitting less also fosters better moods and greater worker productivity. Since standing all the time might not suit your work habits, the option to adjust the desk back to accommodate sitting provides practical versatility.
• Improve your comfort, health, and posture with an ergonomic office chair. Chairs with lumbar support improve spinal alignment, allowing for less back and neck pain and deeper breathing.
• Reduce risk of repetitive strain with an ergonomic keyboard tray. Small, repetitive motions can cause cumulative trauma in the delicate structures of the hand. Considering the average desk-bound worker performs up to 200,000 keystrokes a day, keyboard trays are essential investments for optimized performance.
• Protect your eyes with monitor arms, laptop raisers, and ergonomic lighting. Trouble viewing and focusing on your work can lead to neck pain, blurred vision, eyestrain, and headaches. For proper monitor placement, try a monitor arm or laptop raisers for optimum screen alignment. A directional task light with adjustable brightness eases the eyes and corrects the limitations of overhead lighting.
Awareness Is KeyTaking regular breaks throughout the day to get the blood flowing leads to major health benefits. Whether you add workstation elements like a Standing Desk and ergonomic footrests or take a walk through Irvine during your lunch break, small adjustments can lead to big transformations.
