As the old saying goes 'a comfortable employee is a more productive employee' - as long as they're not too comfortable or leaning towards a horizontal position by the end of the day. However the serious effect of poor equipment is the number of work days that could be lost due to repetitive strain injury and disability.
Office desk chairs can be found in every individual office or cubicle. A comfortable, ergonomic office desk chair is essential for employee satisfaction and a high level of office productivity. Many employees sit for as long as eight hours each workday, with only occasional short breaks. It is important to take preventative measures to prevent injury and to alleviate the stress that is placed on the back from sitting for a prolonged amount of time. For this reason, it is important that office desk chairs offer excellent lumbar support and aid in maintaining proper sitting posture while working.
You need chairs to go with your desks, and you should put some thought into this decision. Employees will be sitting on their chair for several hours each day, so you need to choose a type that is cushioned enough to be comfortable. You should also select ergonomic chairs that help reduce back and neck pain. While the large, extra padded chairs with high backs are usually expensive, you can still find simple yet cushioned chairs that fit within a low budget. This is especially true when you buy in bulk, so find out if office furniture retailers near you offer a bulk discount on this type of item.
The chair should allow for posture change while still providing the body with full support. There should be no position in which the spine, neck or legs feel uncomfortable or pinched while seated, in fact it's time to go square, or at least half square - right angles is how we should be sitting. Chairs are available that employ a suspension technology, assuring proper weight distribution from seat to back as the chair is straightened or reclined. This eliminates problems with stressed ouy pressure-points and impeded blood flow. Many ergonomic chairs now have unique tilt technology which ensures proper distribution from seat to backrest, while ankles, knees, and hips move naturally without disturbing the users concentration. This should help eliminate stress related injuries.
