Work shouldn’t have to be painful, especially when you’re in a famed tech hub like Burlington. Workstation design has a major influence on how you think, feel, and work. Because of long days spent sitting for extended periods, diminished physical, and mental well-being are common realities for most workers. The average American spends about 8 hours a day sitting, leading to unhealthy metabolic changes and putting the body at greater risk for aches and pains. Attention to ergonomic design will help boost health and performance by maximizing correct alignment. Activities like adding a brisk walk through your colorful Burlington neighborhood each morning are great additions to a daily routine. But for those who spend the majority of their 9-to-5 hours at a desk, special attention should be given to maximize comfort, health, and performance.
Why an Ergonomic Office?When worker wellness and comfort is increased, so is productivity. Ergonomic offices are simply smart business investments. While a poorly designed workstation typically means employees spend hours hunched over their desks, typing away at their computers with cramped fingers and strained eyes, ergonomic offices eliminate pains by supporting healthy spinal alignment, increasing circulation, and encouraging greater range of overall movements.
Everything in our bodies is connected. When our bodies are forced into sedentary positions for long periods of time, common pains including chronic back pain, numbness and swelling of the lower extremities, headaches, and shallow breathing can occur. These issues quickly drain people of energy and alertness, affecting performance and overall job satisfaction. Our product consultants can provide much-needed expertise to minimize these negative effects by putting together ergonomic office essentials for everyday problems.
Ergonomic Office EssentialsA workplace designed with wellness in mind anticipates multiple solutions when it comes to helping you work efficiently and without strain.
• Instead of sitting while you work, invest in ergonomic office must-haves such as an adjustable Standing Desk. A stand up desk boosts alertness and encourages movements otherwise prohibited by being confined to a chair for lengthy periods.
• Support your spine with a high-performance ergonomic office chair that protects the lumbar spine through proper posture. When the vertebral column is neutral, the back is relieved of excess pressure. Not only is pain reduced, but the chest also opens and allows for more expansive, oxygen-rich breathing. •
• Adjustable ergonomic keyboard trays, monitor arms, and laptop raisers place workstation elements where you need them to increase utility and reduce pains in the fingers, wrists, eyes, and neck that can lead to musculoskeletal issues such as carpal tunnel syndrome. •
• Encourage good posture with footrests that boost circulation and take pressure off of the lower extremities. •
Get MovingMore time spent standing and moving during the workday increases energy expenditure and overall health benefits. Simple solutions like walking across the hall to engage with a co-worker instead of sending an email or incorporating a standing desk into your workstation go a long way towards hitting the refresh button on your body and mind.
