There are countless things that can detract from the rate of productivity within any place of work. One of the most overlooked causes of work flow inefficiency happens to be completely preventable as well. The physical distractions and discomforts resulting from poor ergonomics and incorrect posture can impede a worker’s flow and the quality of the work that they produce. Consider outfitting your Memphis office with ergonomic office essentials to alleviate these distractions, promote optimal productivity, and efficiency in the work place.
Neck, Shoulder, and Back PainAches and pains in the neck, shoulders, and upper back can be caused by improper posture. Ergonomic office chairs support the body in a neutral position, taking pressure off of the back and promoting proper alignment of the spinal column. Ergonomic footrests relieve pressure on the lower back and promote leg movement—increasing muscle activity and improving circulation throughout the body.
Neck pain can also be caused by straining or leaning forward to view a computer monitor. Fully adjustable dynamic monitor arms can keep your computer monitor at the optimal level for viewing, alleviating pressure on the neck.
The Benefits of an Ergonomic OfficeThe average American is in a sedentary position for over 8 hours a day. Among other complications relating to your health, remaining seated for extended periods of time can lead to leg numbness due to poor circulation. The stand-up desk provides opportunities for movement throughout the day by giving the desk worker an option of changing positions. Desk workers can sit or stand, and alternating between the positions to promote healthy blood flow. Improved circulation carries with it the health benefits of improved metabolism, accelerated absorption of nutrients, and an increased rate of elimination of toxins.
Improper monitor positioning can also cause eyestrain. Monitor arms can help relieve this strain as well as the strain on the neck. Improper office lighting can lead to eye fatigue as well. The Element light produces a neutral white light that will make it possible to view a computer monitor for extended periods of time without causing additional eye strain.
Carpal tunnel syndrome, an epidemic in the modern work place, is caused by holding the wrists and hands at an improper angle while typing for extended periods. Keyboard trays allow you to position your keyboard at the proper angle to reduce tension in the wrists and enable you to complete your work pain-free.
