The Ergotherapy range of chairs are all designed by a physiotherapist with your body in mind. We all have different body shapes, so choosing a chair will depend on the functionality required. The GetOne range has an excellent lumbar support designed according to the angles of your lower back. It has height adjustable armrests which raise and allow to you to move closer to the desk. The GetOne chairs provide firm support.
The NetOne range has more adjustability and a more flexible lumbar support. The unique pivot lumbar support adjusts according to your spine, and lateral movement allows for constant contact on your back while working. The armrests are 3D so raise and lower, invert and evert as well as move forward and backwards.
Choosing a chair is really a personal preference, so if you are unsure we recommend you visit one of our showrooms in Sandton, JHB or Observatory, CT to try out our chairs. You are welcome to contact any of our reps for more advice.
The features and lumbar support are identical in both Midback and Highback Get One chairs.
The Net One range of chairs has a midback with a black fabric seat and no headrest, the highback has a leatherette seat and additional leatherette height adjustable headrest.
It is important to note that the crucial area to feel support is in your lower back - even if you are suffering from upper back or neck & shoulder discomfort. A well supported lower back, combined with correct positioning of the workstation, will keep your head and cervical spine in the correct alignment and pain-free. The Midback generally finishes at shoulder height, the Highback midway up the head. If you like to sometimes lean back when speaking on the phone or reading, then the Highback will be enjoyed. If you prefer not to have anything behind the head, then the Midback is for you.
The back support of the Ergotherapy chairs were designed according to the angles of your lumbar spine by a physiotherapist, and provide the optimal support to maintain a neutral position. This allows you to maintain the correct posture while working. The backrest of the Get One chair also comes more forward than most chairs so that you can have constant support. The muscles of your body can then relax and will not fatigue. Musculoskeletal problems such as lower back pain, neck pain and headaches are caused by fatiguing muscles, which then go into spasm, which ultimately results in pain. The Ergotherapy Get One and net One chairs help prevent this situation from occurring by providing much needed support. Ergotherapy chairs are not only ergonomically designed but can be adjusted to each individual which means you can get the chair to the right height, angle and armrest support at the correct level for each user.
The GetOne chair is upholstered in a standard highly durable fabric in a wide range of colours, however you can also select any fabric or leather which we can then quote you on.
The NetOne range comes standard in black fabric or black leatherette. The seat can be upholstered in any fabric of your choice but this will incur additional costs.
If you are working on tiles, rubber castors provide more traction to prevent your chair from rolling away from your desk.
If you are working on wood, laminate or vinyl flooring, the rubber castors prevent damage to the flooring
If you are working on carpet or carpet tiles, there is no need for rubber castors.
If your situation changes we can supply you with rubber castors at an additional cost
Most managers make the assumption that their staff are comfortable & efficient. The reality is that most people are uncomfortable & therefore not as efficient as they could be due to Over-use/repetitive use injuries! With the increase in the time spent in front of computers, there has been a resultant increase in levels of worker discomfort and musculoskeletal pain and injury. Our range of chairs provide the perfect support and comfort so that employees can work more efficiently and therefore take less time off. Read our research done on the increase of the efficiency of workers. The study, which was conducted to test the impact of the Get One chair on performance, revealed a 30.7% increase within 4 weeks of using the GetOne chair.
The GetOne visitor’s chair is designed with the same lumbar support as the Midback and provides an extremely comfortable chair for guests or for a waiting area. It has no adjustability.
Armrests are important to provide support for your arms so that your shoulders can be completely relaxed. Armrest height should be adjusted relative to the height of the desk surface and keyboard. It is important that you can bring the chair in close to the desk so that you are not “reaching” for your computer. Armrests should therefore be positioned so that they fit below or above the desk surface or at a comfortable height to “offload” the shoulders.
The GetOne range has 1D armrests and the NetOne range has 3D armrests.
The upholstery is very easy to clean by just wiping with a damp cloth or using a dry upholstery cleaner which is available from most retail outlets. For stubborn stains please contact a professional cleaner.
The NetOne range comes with a 7 year guarantee and the Get One range comes with a 5 year guarantee on all the parts excluding the fabric. If the problem can be fixed on site, it will be done so by one of our technicians. If the problem needs to be fixed at the factory, it will be attended to and returned as soon as possible. A callout fee or cost of transport to and from the factory will be charged. Please mail email@example.com
