Seating Ergonomics

Office Chairs: sitting in your office chair for hours every day can be a painful and disabling experience if not managed correctly. What is the solution? I would suggest an Ergonomic Office Chair to start with, and then some rules about how to sit in it. We have some tips here that can assist you with setting up your own desk and chair in order to minimize your discomfort. Hopefully then you don’t require a visit to your chiropractor to sort out your back, neck or shoulders!                         I will list a few pointers to get you started and from there you can fine tweak your set up to maximize your overall comfort and posture. The Ergonomic office chair that you select for your workstation should be easily adjustable with a strong base and comfortable padding. The top of your office desk should be between 730-750mm high to the top. Adjust your chair until your arms/elbows are level with the top of the work surface. This will keep your wrists level, with minimal bending. If your chair has arms, make sure they are lever with your desk top. You don’t want them higher or lower than the surface of your desk. Keep your elbows close to your sides. Your feet should be  flat with the floor and your knees should be slightly off the front of the chair. I would recommend a chair with either a mid-back or high-back. This is important to provide upper back and lower back support, so you don’t have to lean forward and use your muscles...

Ergonomic Accessories

Ergonomics. It is something that is often over looked in the workplace, with costly, and painful consequences. I would like to refer you to my previous blog about Basic seating ergonomics as well. LCD Arms (wall and desk mount): Having a fairly straight back and neck when you work is very important for posture. (A good chair is important for this). Making use of something like an LCD Arm will not only help you to position your monitor in the best position, but will also free up valuable desk space. Foot rests: Foot rests are not really something you think of until you use one, and realise how much it can improve your overall comfort. If your feet are not touching the floor firmly when you sit, you may be restricting the flow in your legs as well. Laptop Stands (wall and desk mount): Laptops placed flat on a work surface can cause you to lean too far forward when operating them, and therefor cause extra strain on your neck, upper back, elbows and wrists.. Laptop holders and stands will allow you to place the unit at a more ergonomically suitable position. You will then need to connect an external keyboard and mouse to get your browsing / typing work set up correctly. Document Stand: Having a document/book standing upright will help with neck and back posture and will help relieve strain from bending up and down all the time. Multi purpose electronic desk height adjustment. This is a very handy item to have if you need to set your desk at a specific height, or have occasion to...
