I love to sit with a straight back but, referring back to that manager in a residential home, or any job where that budget seems to overwhelm you, you can find yourself glued to your seat, tossing figures around in your mind and easily forgetting that you should have gone home hours ago. And that’s when I realised I wasn’t sitting upright anymore but was, at times, sprawling across my desk and suffering the consequent pain.
The higher up you get in office life, the less likely you are to take a real lunch break. And office life doesn’t only occur in an office. A strange thing to say I know but even a manager in a residential home is working in an office, so you see what I mean. While computers were to reduce paperwork, I suppose they did reduce the ‘paper’ element but they didn’t reduce the need to fill in forms, hence the need to be comfortable when you’re sitting at your desk.
A good ergonomic office chair will encourage you to sit up properly. It will have all those whizzes and bangs that, when you adjust them to suit your frame, you’ll want to own those changes, to make use of them and, as you’ll find out, to benefit from them.
Take the Nefil Office Chair model by Ergohuman as an example. Coming in a mesh upholstery, it’s a breathable material which is already giving you comfort. With its adjustments of seat height, seat tilt and glide, you can get your perfect sitting position. Have you ever sunk into a sofa that is too low and too squidgy and, though it might feel good as you drop into it, it’s not really a comfortable experience? Well, getting that seat pad of the Nefil just right for you means that you’re guaranteed comfort, that you can enjoy the experience and that coming and going, as office life demands, become second nature actions.
The Nefil ergonomic office chair also has an in-built lumbar support panel which, when you’ve adjusted the seat back to make that lumbar panel meet with your lumbar region, you will be hugging your back and keeping you in comfortable working posture. A good example when talking about chairs is think of carrying a bottle of wine in a suitcase, without padding like wrapping the bottle in a tee-shirt or two and then fixing it in position inside your suitcase. Something’s going to give, isn’t it? While you might b able to replace the bottle of wine the same day, getting the pain out of your body as a result of sitting badly isn’t going to be so quick. So, yes, supporting your lower back really is important, as it goes towards supporting all-round good health.
And when that Nefil ergonomic office chair comes in a super colour of your own choice, it’ll feel just as good as that personally-chosen wine tastes. You might also want to have a look at the Ergohuman Office Chair from the same family.
If you know anything about office furniture, you’ll know that we’re now in the world of ergonomics. In a nutshell, this means making the office environment fit you. It means looking at your personal working space, your job responsibilities and also your body frame measurements and weight, to get the ‘best for you’ as regards to working conditions.
‘Getting it right’ will cover space, light, noise and overall sitting comfort:-
Space. A good ergonomic layout will mean that your work system is organised in such a way that you don’t have to carry heavy weights over long distances, you don’t have to overly stretch and you’re not working in cramped conditions etc..
Light. Good daylight is important and, where this isn’t possible, good simulated daylight is the next best thing. Knowing what type of lighting to buy for your office space is essential. Also bear in mind that a lot of light comes from your computer screen and this is going directly towards your eyes, which isn’t a good thing, as good light should always come from over your shoulder. I would always advise getting a filter screen for your computer, to reduce that ‘sunlight’ effect which really is too bright.
Noise. We now often hear of noise pollution and, in a busy office, pollution is often the case. For example, how often have you had to speak with call centre staff and can’t hear what your contact is saying as clearly as you can hear her colleagues? In that modern-day office, false walls in the form of screens are often used, to give that feeling of private space and to somewhat reduce the effect of the overall noise.
Overall Sitting Comfort. When it comes to seating, always look at ergonomic office chairs, as these are designed to offer many adjustments, making the chair of your choice match your overall needs. The Ergohuman range has several models, like the Ergohuman, the Ergohuman Plus, the Mirus, Enjoy and the Nefil. Spend some time finding out what these chairs offer. The features include seat tilt and glide, seat height, adjustable armrests, a lumbar support region and many other useful features and there are also additional extras, such as a headrest, a leg rest and a note table. Knowing what your job responsibilities ask of you will help you decide which of these additional extras are necessary.
Overall. An ergonomically-friendly environment makes work a pleasure and the day less stressful. It’s like any job, a bad workman always blames his tools, so getting the environment right for you means success all round.
Knowing about good posture is very important but, whilst looking for this information, .I came across a mention of how bad posture affects more than just your back.
If you sit poorly, it doesn’t take your muscles long to think that this position is the way it’s going to be and your muscles work alongside this bad posture, causing an imbalance in muscle support. Also, if you slouch, you are restricting digestion, circulation and breathing and your bones aren’t too happy about it either.
Once the aches and pain start in places like your neck, shoulders and back, maintaining a sitting position for any length of time becomes difficult and you may have to restrict sitting to twenty minutes or so, then move around to give your muscles and your skeletal frame a change of position, before returning to your earlier task.
If you have a job that allows regular movement e.g. a shop assistant, moving and changing position is part and parcel of the requirements of the post. If you are in a sedentary job (the list is endless!), that earlier acquired bad posture and its accompanying aches and pains is going to cause havoc e.g. discomfort, irritability, distraction and concentration problems.
The truth is that we probably don’t know what good posture entails i.e. does it mean more than sitting with a straight back?
Good posture includes having your feet firmly on the floor: dangling feet and crossed legs are definitely ‘no go’ areas. Your tailbone should be right up to the back of the chair and so should your back, unless you are slanting slightly forward, in which case the line between your head, chest and pelvis should be straight (not curved).
So, these points indicate a good sitting posture but that’s not the end of the story. The chair is only good for you if it’s ‘user-friendly’ in relation to the height of your table or desk, as your forearms need to reach the task in a horizontal position.
This is where ergonomic chairs are worth their weight in gold. They adjust not only to support your back but also to meet your height. The arm rests can be adjusted to ensure horizontal support for your hands and, together, you are sitting comfortably and working well.
There is quite a range of adjustable chairs, as each of us is different and an ergonomic chair means that the chair fits you and not the reverse! When choosing a suitable office chair, it will pay you to call on the advice of someone knowledgeable in ergonomics, to make an assessment of both your skeletal frame and the duties of your job. This will make sure that you choose the office chair that meets your needs.
