What is an Orthopaedic Chair?
As the name implies, these chairs are designed with the human skeleton in mind and the back in particular. Office workers in particular can suffer from back problems due to sitting at desks 8 hours a day. Bad backs will only become worse if the chair is not a quality, supportive seat designed for daily use.
Orthopaedic chairs usually have a large range of adjustments to suit each individual, from Coccyx cut outs in seats, extra supports for the upper and lower back and continuous moving mechanisms to stop the body locking up.
Benefits of Orthopaedic Chairs
Sitting may seem like a relaxing task but it actually puts a lot of pressure on the buttocks and thighs and can produce a number of problems, especially in the long term. This is why orthopaedic chairs can offer a number of health benefits to the user and as a result benefits your business.
- Back Support which stops the back becoming tired and sore.
- Better posture as people sit and stand up straight which has long term health benefits
- Increased efficiency and effectiveness of employees due to better health and comfort
- Fewer sick days due to back and neck pain
