Ergonomic Chairs

We spend more time seated at work than at any other time in our lives. Our bodies were built for movement, sitting for extended periods of time without the correct seating can be detrimental to our health, including the onset or worsening of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD’s).

A well designed ergonomic chair will:
• Minimise pressure on muscles and joints
• Increase blood flow
• Prevent muscle deterioration

It will also improve staff’s energy levels and motivation, and ultimately productivity.

Head and Neck Support

MSD can develop through a culmination of factors, a major contributor being ‘Poor seated posture’. It was responsible for 8.9 million lost working days by 507,000 workers in the last year alone in the UK . 45% of those workers developed upper limb or neck disorders, debilitating both physically and mentally*.

A headrest has two purposes:
• Supporting both the back of the head and the upper neck, reducing tension in the shoulders and upper torso.
• Encouraging good posture and avoid forward head syndrome where the neck muscles shorten and thicken causing headaches and arm pain.

Lumbar Support

Everyones spine is a unique shape, and because we all have a different contour it is important that the Lumbar support system can adjust to our own spine. We supply models within a performance scale from fixed support of the lumber spine to multi directional support either side of the spine.

Arm Support

Supporting arm weight minimises stress to the spine and requires a flexible range of adjustability to accommodate all uses.
Height – Reduces muscle stress on the upper back,neck and shoulders.
Forward tilt – accommodates user physique, desk footprint and nature of tasks.
Width – necessary to optimise arm rest support for users of different shapes and sizes.
