Orthopaedic office chairs – It’s all about ergonomics

Apr 20, 2018

Back problems are a major cause of people being off sick. So choosing what they sit on from an orthopaedic office chair range is a great place to start to help reduce this. And why is that the case?
 

Back problems are a major cause of people being off sick. So choosing what they sit on from an orthopaedic office chair range is a great place to start to help reduce this. And why is that the case? Because it’s not just a matter of choosing height adjustable office chairs, it’s about ergonomics…

Orthopaedic Office Chairs – An Intro
Orthopaedic office chairs, often referred to as ergonomically designed chairs, are height adjustable office chairs on steroids. They’re designed specifically to reduce the risk of back problems and encourage good posture. If comfortable and focused employees are what you’re looking for, orthopaedic office chairs are where you should turn.

What are the basics of orthopaedic office chair design?
Designers who work in ergonomics understand that no one chair fits all. People are different shapes, different sizes, different weights. Some have short torsos, some long. Some have short arms, some have long legs. The list of combinations is endless. So for a member of your staff to be comfortable sitting at their desk, they need to be sitting in a height adjustable office chair that fine-tunes in other ways too.

But that’s not all there is to it. Different roles require different types of movement. Some jobs necessitate an individual getting up from their desk frequently. Others tasks mean reaching and swivelling in a chair happens a lot. Orthopaedic office chairs will cater and adjust to each individual’s role requirements depending on the way their work flows.

But, of course, orthopaedic office chairs can only do half their job if they don’t work/fit with the office desks they’re paired with. Get that combo right, and your employees will have improved posture and more comfort, whilst also enjoying an office furniture solution that caters functionally to their needs too.

What are the features of orthopaedic office chairs?
The seat height should be adjustable
The seat should be wide enough and deep enough to support an employee properly
The seat and the back should be padded enough to provide comfort for those who sit for extended periods of time
There should be lumbar support designed in to support the lower back.
The backrest should also be adjustable, both vertically and in a backwards/forwards direction.
The arm rests should be adjustable.
There should be the ability to swivel the chair and rotate it easily
A five star base will provide the necessary stability
