Ergonomics and Posture
When performing written work, we often shift to the edge of our chair so we can sit up straighter and reduce the load on our lower back muscles. This results in a space that is too small to sit on and consequently too much pressure on the skin. What's more, in this position, we can't use the armrests anymore, nor do we have any support for our back.
A chair with its seat and back tilted forwards will prevent these problems. The back support assumes the load on the lower back muscles. If you add armrests with adjustable height and width, you will also prevent a static load on the neck and shoulder muscles.
When talking on the phone or with a colleague, we often flop in our chairs. The slouching that follows causes the back muscles to take on a static load. A seat and back that tilt backwards along with the occupant prevent slouching so that the spinal column keeps its natural posture.

Why choose Ergonomic Seating?
The term 'ergonomics' is popping up more and more, certainly with regard to legislation dealing with working conditions and occupational safety.
Most people have a rough idea of what the term covers, but what does it actually mean?
Ergonomics is derived from the Greek words 'ergon' (work) and 'nomos' (law). In other words, ergonomics refers to 'laws related to work'. The laws referred to here are natural laws, not judicial laws. The aim of ergonomics is to promote the mental and physical well-being of the individual in the workplace so that an optimal productivity can be achieved.

There are three main areas of business life in which the employer will gain from investing in improving posture at the workplace:
1. Greater effeciency through improved morale, higher productivity, and less absenteeism.
2. Compliance with health and safety law.
3. Reduction of the risks litigation from injured or stressed employess.
