The benefits of ergonomic office chairs and office tables are many. The first is the comfort factor which allows you to work for long hours without experiencing severe discomfort or joint pains. Ergonomic chairs for example have been built to support the body, especially the spine and neck and have the option to adjust the height, back support etc for added comfort. Also arm rests, which are a standard feature of ergonomic office chairs help in ensuring support to the elbows and arms, especially to someone whose job involves a lot of typing. All these features help in increasing productivity and lowering the health risks for employee at work.
A sedentary working culture which involves sitting for long hours at one place has its own share of disadvantages. Improper sitting posture combined with stiff office chairs and uncomfortable work desks can often lead to severe back and neck aches, which can reduce productivity and also cause health issues in the long run. Lower back pain is second only to upper respiratory infections as a leading cause of absence from work.
We have been so busy all this time in our daily activities in our offices that almost every one of us has forgotten about the comfort of our office places and work environments. Activities such as attending meetings, client calls, managing daily and weekly tasks, completing lagging schedules, trying to manage our personal lives with no impact on office work etc. eat up most part of our daily office routine and some times, considering the recession these days, we even end up spending more time in the office than what we are paid for. In such a situation, we do not ever realize about our bodies being penalized for sitting so long in the office and severities such as back pain, neck pain, low eye sight etc. start arising and avert us from our actual goals in life.
