ergonomics

an overview

Ergonomics is the science of making things fit people instead of asking people to fit things. We take this science very seriously when designing our chairs.

 

  • The rise in back pain and muscle ailments is a global phenomenon.
  • In developed countries, people on average sit 3 to 8 hours a day.
  • Prolonged sitting can cause injury, heart disease, and fatigue.
  • Experts recommend standing 5 to 20 minutes each hour.
  • Height-adjustable furniture can reduce sitting time by up to 60%.
  • Training on how to adjust furniture multiplies its benefits.

 

features of a good chair

  • Adjustable seat height and range: can it be adjusted to the recommended height for a tall or short user.
  • Adjustable backrest: can it be adjusted both vertically and in a forward-backward direction? Does the backrest naturally conform to your body to maintain the essential “S-form” of your spine.
  • Seat depth: will it be suitable for a tallest or short user?
  • Stability: a five-point base is recommended (diameters vary depending on chair size).
  • Productivity features: armrests with adjustable heights are good for computer operators. Wider or narrower armrests may be required depending on the user’s dimensions and required tasks.
  • Does it promote motion: use castors instead of glides and choose ones that match the type of flooring you have (carpeting or hard floors).

 

With a distinct, understated aesthetic, the design should reflect the natural nature of sitting. Look out for products that boast our ergonomic icon or get in touch to find out more.

 

general wellbeing

One of the keys to physical and mental health lies in stimulation of the muscles, our principle metabolic organs. A combination of sitting, standing, and moving over the course of the workday—and not too much of any one activity—is the best approach to managing the balance between postural risk and physical comfort.
