Why you need to invest in an orthopaedic office chair


 
Health
Most jobs today involve people hunching over computer screens for days on end. It’s this kind of work environment that creates hazards for employees that make them unproductive, and worse become incapable of working. It becomes important for any employer to invest in an office that is safe for long-term use. Orthopaedic office chairs offer the comfort that employees need for tedious task without compromising their health.

The following are top reasons why you should invest in orthopaedic office chairs.

Scoliosis is caused by conventional chairs

Because employees are usually on desks typing reports, they often spend most of their time sitting. Conventional chairs are incapable of helping employees maintain their postures. Most chairs do not have back support. Thus, employees usually contort their bodies to become comfortable. According to a study, scoliosis affects 6-9 million people around the world.

Contrary to popular belief, ninety degrees isn’t the appropriate posture for people in a sitting position. Ergonomist assert that chairs need to be designed to let users sit with a 135 degree posture. However, conditioning the spine to postures that are not normal can lead to scoliosis.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Most chairs offer no protection for people who heavily use keyboards. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) happens when wrists are continously put under stress. This leads employees, usually those who use computers, to have sore hands. One out of 20 people is affected by this syndrome. This is because normal chairs don’t have armrests that evenly distributes the stress given to the wrists. However, orthopaedic office chairs are ergonomically designed to lessen the chance of CTS.

Musculoskeletal discomfort

Simply put as ‘muscle pain’, musculoskeletal discomfort affects most office workers. Characterized by soreness and aching in several parts of the body, muscle pain is often remedied with painkillers. However, a proactive solution to muscle pain is through ergonomic chairs. The width of orthopaedic office chairs is designed to enable employees to ‘breathe’. Ergonomists say that conventional chairs constrict blood flow which might be the cause for muscle pain. Moreover, ergonomic office chairs are often equipped with levers that adjust height. It’s important that the thighs of the user is parallel to the floor and that the legs are not dangling off the chair. This is to make sure that blood fully circulates for maximum comfort.

Why should you be concerned?

Trivial as it may seem, chairs that are not ergonomically designed can lead to several health conditions. Employers should be concerned because health conditions affect the overall productivity of workers. Muscle discomfort may distract employees or result in mediocre output. At the worst case scenario when the medical condition is left untreated, an employee might file for a leave which the company has to pay.

Investing in orthopaedic chairs is a smart decision to maintain the health of employees so that they’ll be highly productive.

Joseph works for Norwich based Lockwood Hume. They offer a huge range of office furniture and office supplies, such as the orthopaedic office chair, providing stationary and furniture for home offices, corporate businesses and retail environments.
