Here at Randalls Office Furniture we are constantly keeping an eye on new developments in the furniture industry to ensure that we are able to provide some the best, top quality office furniture available on the market. One of the things we are passionate about as a company is being able to provide office furniture that reduces the effect that sitting down all day can have on your body; this includes height adjustable desks and orthopaedic chairs.
The reason why orthopaedic chairs are much more suitable for people is that they are ergonomically designed to suit your body; with that in mind we are excited to announce a brand new range of ergonomic Scandinavian Chairs.
Benefits of Ergonomic Chairs
Sitting down all day may seem like an easy and relaxing task but research conducted in recent years has shown just how much sitting down for long periods can have a negative impact on your body.
Because the pressure that is put on your lower back and legs whilst sitting can even produce a number of health issues, ergonomic or orthopaedic chairs offer a number of benefits including:
- Provide back support
- Produces better posture
- Increased efficiency and effectiveness of employees due to improved health
- Reduced back and neck pain equals fewer sick days
With these factors in mind then, both for employers and employees, the use of an ergonomic chair seems like a no brainer in comparison to a regular office chair.
What you need to know about the Scandinavian Chairs
So let’s get down into the nitty gritty and find out more about our new chair range and what makes them so good.
When these chairs were designed a lot of thought was put into the human body, how we sit, and how we move. During the R&D process the one thing that stood out was that in the past people used to sit on horseback, riding around, for long periods of time yet the same health issues did not present themselves, and it was found that this was due to the way their legs sat and moved in the stirrups.
With this in mind the range of Scandinavian Chairs began to really come together and the end product is something that is perfectly designed for the human body and works intuitively with it to ensure that you are seated correctly.
The special element of this product is the Balanced Movement Mechanism which is unique to these chairs and allows the front edge of the seat to tilt upwards when you lean back and down when you lean forwards. At first a tilting chair may seem like something that could be an annoyance but actually this tilting process stimulates ankle movement, which in turn activates the circulation mechanisms of your lower legs, enhancing circulation throughout the body.
You may be wondering why this is useful. Well if you sit at a desk all day you will know that you regularly move you, hands, arms, and head but your legs don’t move so much. But as this is an area of the body that receives some of the most pressure during sitting the ability and prompt to move your legs throughout the day can aid in the health benefits that are seen with the use of ergonomic chairs. This new chair range will naturally allow you and your body to be prepared for a new movement and a new task.
The end result of the Balance Movement Mechanism is that with greater circulation throughout the body the user will have greater energy and improved efficiency at work.
Is it time for a new office chair?
So when you way up the positives and negatives, yes you will have the initial expenditure of buying new chairs but as research has evidenced increased health from proper back support can lead to better efficiency and effectiveness of your employees as well as fewer sick days, so in the long run pampering your employees with a lovely new office chair will actually make you money!
