It may seem outlandish to think your desk could be killing you, but there have been numerous studies confirming that it comes with serious health risks, plus it could be draining your productivity and making you miserable at the same time! So, is it not time to consider parting ways with your old desk and opting for a better alternative? An adjustable desk that allows you to alternate between sitting and standing is a great option, especially if this sounds like you:
Employees are the backbone of your business, but do you have their backs? The way we view the modern workspace has changed, and things like foosball tables, in-house baristas and fully kitted out breakrooms have become popular employee requests. The actual return on investment that these various workplace trends offer is a widely-contested topic, and most have little scientific research to prove that they do anything of value for your business – except one.
A comfortable sit and stand workstation can help you work at your most productive and feel your best, but getting the most out of your adjustable standing desk and workstation requires some fine-tuning on your part. Everybody is different, with different postures, heights, and problem areas such as back pain or shoulder tension.
Seeing as you spend so much time in your workspace, it can essentially be thought of as your home away from home. Familiarity breeds contempt, so if you find yourself feeling as though you are in a rut in the office, it may be because you spend hours on end in the same place, looking at the same view.
Lifestyle coaches, such as Kate Emmerson, always encourage decluttering your life on a regular basis to remove all the old unwanted unnecessary things that may be weighing you down. Holding on to familiarities may also be preventing you from allowing or trying new things into your life.
Is technology advancing too fast for us to keep up with, or is the average human just being lazy? Whatever the answer is, Nissan has revealed a game-changer as far as ergonomics is concerned. Introducing the Intelligent Parking Chair, a self-parking chair that responds immediately to a single clap command.
The creation of the self-parking chair is inspired by Nissan’s intelligent park assist technology found in their models. Much like the park assist functions we have become familiar with, the intelligent chair is able to turn a full 360 degrees, reverse and of course park itself to its routed destination.
It’s no exaggeration to say that over the last two decades, computers have pretty much completely taken over our lives, especially in the workplace.
The popularity and feedback that we at Ergotherapy receive from clients who have purchased an ergonomic office chair for lower back pain from us, shows that our increasingly sedentary lifestyles are driving the demand for chairs for lower back problems.
One of the consequences of the modern workplace and lifestyle is back pain which affects most people at some point in their lives. And some find the pain so debilitating that they struggle to function.
A chair is a chair is a chair, right? Your spine begs to differ. Gone are the days when just about any chair was suitable for long hours of working at a desk. With more and more information available about achieving and maintaining optimal spinal health, lumbar support chairs are fast becoming an industry standard.
The vast majority of office work today involved lengthy hours of sitting, which can, and does, take a toll on your health due to the excess strain placed on your back, neck and shoulders. As suppliers and manufacturers of South Africa’s most ergonomically correct back support chair, we know all too well the importance of specifically choosing a chair for back support and not good looks alone.
Ergonomic office chairs are these days seen as a more and more important investment for a modern workplace. With most employees spending at least 8 hours in a seated position at work, the toll on employees’ bodies over time can be severe – or even debilitating. Office chairs come in many shapes and sizes, but when the welfare of your employees, as well as their job satisfaction and productivity on the line, doesn’t it make sense to ensure their office chairs promote good health?
Ergonomic office chairs are excellent for preventing lower back pain. The reason for this is that they support the back in a way that traditional office chairs do not.
When you sit unsupported there is pressure on your spine and strain on your muscles. Over long periods of time this can lead to constricted nerves and blood vessels as well as problems with joints, muscles and discs.
