Without proper back and neck support, many workers suffer from these common body aches and pains, which can lead to long-term health problems. This is where ergonomic office furniture can greatly alleviate the risk of such health hazards by providing optimum support to the spine, neck and other joints. The word ‘ergonomic‘ is derived from the Greek words ”ergos” meaning work, and ”nomos,” meaning natural laws of, which itself explains that such type of furniture is meant to support your posture the way it was meant to be, naturally.
Chair arms are one of the first parts to break on an office chair because of the repeated pressure that is applied to them throughout the chair‘s lifetime. If your chair is even still under warranty when the part breaks, it can be quite time-consuming to request replacement parts; sometimes the process of receiving a new part can take up to a few weeks from the time the request is placed with the manufacturer. If your chair is not under warranty, then a new chair will need to be purchased adding to the cost which could have been saved had you purchased an armless office chair.
Many people acknowledge the benefits of a high-quality, ergonomic chair, yet neglect to spend the money on getting one. When looking for the right office chair to suit your work habits and lifestyle, begin by field testing a number of different models personally. There‘s no substitute for trying out an office chair in the flesh. Once you have an idea of what works best, you can narrow your search by looking at specific models in various price ranges. At the end of the day, the upfront cost of a dependable and comfortable office chair is more than offset by the health and productivity benefits that it can provide.
The benefits of ergonomic office chairs and office tables are many. The first is the comfort factor which allows you to work for long hours without experiencing severe discomfort or joint pains. Ergonomic chairs for example have been built to support the body, especially the spine and neck and have the option to adjust the height, back support etc for added comfort. Also arm rests, which are a standard feature of ergonomic office chairs help in ensuring support to the elbows and arms, especially to someone whose job involves a lot of typing. All these features help in increasing productivity and lowering the health risks for employee at work.
