The Benefits of an Ergonomic Office Chair
According to Backcare.org.uk, almost half of the adult population in the UK suffers from back pain lasting more than 24 hours at least once a year. Ergonomists recommend that you have a “rest break” every 30-60 minutes, where you should stand up and walk around allowing the use of other muscles and giving the brain a rest – which won’t make you feel as tired.
These days it is the norm to sit for 8 or 9 hours at your desk, only getting up to nip to the toilet, most of us even work through lunch; not allowing both the rest and exercise needed to be as productive as we could be.
More and more offices are now looking into the brilliance of ergonomic seating. It means that if you really have to spend so long at your desk without a break, at least you can do it comfortably. Ergonomic chairs offer full support to your back as well as other fantastic features such as lumbar support, tension support, ratchet back height adjustment, deep molded foam upholstery and also offer features to improve blood flow, reduce muscle fatigue and Improve lung function and oxygenation thereby improving concentration.
