Office Ergonomics

Product Spotlight- Ergonomic Chairs

October is National Ergonomics Month and the most important piece of ergonomic equipment in any office is the chair.

 

The human body is meant to remain in motion, so in sedentary jobs a poorly designed chair may cause stress and pressure points over time. A good ergonomic chair has many adjustable features to fit each individual’s body and, more importantly, has a large range of motion in its connections to keep your body in action.

Here are five examples of excellent ergonomic chairs that EON’s Environmental Design team recommends from Global and Allseating. As well as providing excellent support and comfort, these chairs come in a variety of quality materials and finishes to match any decor.

Loover from Global

The Loover is an office favorite as a standard task chair with features like automatic tension, lumbar support, fully adjustable components, and vented back.


Roma from Global

This eco-friendly option has a flexible back that provides support for spinal alignment and comfort in seated tasks that require more motion. The back tilt locking mechanism provides additional support for stationary tasks as well.


G20 from Global

Sleek styling and clean lines are the hallmarks of this chair. Despite the simple look of this chair, it has advanced ergonomic adjustment options and has a synchronized mechanism that adjusts your seat automatically as you tilt for maximum comfort.


You from Allseating

This curvy chair has a unique U-shaped back suspension that automatically lifts you into a comfortable seated position and conforms to each user’s back to keep the spine supported.


Inertia from Allseating

One challenge of ergonomic chairs can be their large size- this chair provides a solution for smaller spaces with a pared down profile and smaller adjustment controls. It also comes in a variety of beautiful colors and patterns to blend into any office.

October is National Ergonomics Month

Ergonomics is a term meaning “natural laws of work” and is the practice of determining how to conform your work to your body for maximum comfort and minimum strain. Your posture and range of motion in a sedentary job can significantly impact your health and often a simple adjustment can make a big difference to risk of injury. In addition to physical strains, factors such as lighting, noise, and clutter may also affect work safety and health.

According to OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), almost 33% of work injury is caused by muscle or nerve disorders that may be prevented by attention to ergonomic devices and behaviors.
