Ergonomic Chairs: Your Workplace Needs

Whether you are moving office spaces or are a new start up company, you are going to have needs in the office supply department. There are several considerations to take into account when deciding on what to purchase for your workplace environment. Even on a budget, with all of the office supply stores and online shopping sites, you should be able to spend your money wisely and get what is needed with some careful planning.

First, you should take into consideration the size of the space available and the number of employees. Do you need to break up the area into sections with more privacy and noise control? Perhaps it would be better for your situation if all of the employees shared a joint workspace. Cubicles are needed for most arrangements of four or more employees, due to the budget needs of not building additional walls and the mobility need to accommodate the area. Cubicles can also provide a terrific sound block if the right model is purchased and still allows the user to interact quite easily with the other workers.

There is a wide variety of styles, colors, fabrics and sizes available in office cubicles. Most complete office interior retailers will come to your workplace to help you with the layout, measuring and ordering of the cubicles and assist with most other office furniture needs. They usually offer chairs, keyboard trays, storage cabinets and other supplies to purchase all items in one spot. Online shopping sites are also carrying custom ordered products with all of the options and tons of great product lines and various categories.

Office Chairs are another office product that can be quite complicated, you will need different types of chairs and seating for different rooms and tasks. Some chairs will be used with multiple workers and adjustability is the key feature, other chairs will be used with one specific person in mind and fitting it to that person’s body type is considered most important. Make sure what the important main functions will be before deciding on a chair model

Ordering the correct number of keyboard trays, footrests, phones and equipment is based on the number of employees one has and the size of the space. If possible, try to order a few extras of the important supplies used in daily tasks. When ordering extras, you will never run out of equipment when an item needs warranty repair or maintenance.

Hopes are that with careful planning and making sure to factor in the workstation considerations, you will be able to start your new work arrangement well and comfortably. Ordering online can save a business time and money and with easy to compare pricing, direct shipping and extensive product detail pages, you will be done quickly. Make lists of the needs for your workspace before starting to shop and take each need into consideration when purchasing your office furniture, chairs and supplies.

Ergonomic Software can Help to Remind Employees to Practice Good Ergonomics in the Office

Repetitive stress injuries are suffered by office keyboard and employees that sit in the office chair for hours each day and are growing in epidemic proportions as of recently. The number of workers compenstion claims stemming from repetitive stress injuries in the workplace is overwhelming. Unless a business is willing to change the way that their employees interface with their workstation and computer, the injuries and problems are going to get worse, not to mention more expensive on the companies paying out the insurance claims.

Recently ergonomists have been working on technological advancements to help employess to remember proper postioning and ergonomic posture everyday in the workplace. In the past 5 years, programs have been specifically designed to reduce both the workplace injuries and stress at the workplace. The research involoved in this mission involves the use of voice recognition software to help employees to practice proper ergonomics throughout the day.

Many companies are investing and starting the process of learning and educating themselves on proper erognomics in the office. The variety of software available now should help to improve user productivity and efficiency, and reduce both the incidence and severity of these RSI’s or repetitive motion injuries. The average employee works anywhere from 5-10 hours on the computer each day. This requires them to stay seated for an unhealthy amount of time and requires them to practice good ergonomic positioning if they plan to avoid injury.

Motion is pertinent to practicing good ergonomics in the workplace. This software which is being created and is already available on the marketplace, uses webcams and time release software in order to remind the user on a constant basis to practice the art of ergonomics and motion. Movement is critical to creating a healthy office environment and practicing ergonomics. Using these new software programs only helps to remind users how to position their bodies.

Once a habit is developed, as anyone knows, it is hard to break and hard to change the pattern of behaivor that comes with a habitual action. The same applies to sitting in ones office chair, it is hard to change the patterns of behavior in the workplace environment once one is used to doing things a certain way. Similar motions, over and over again may add up to a cumulative trauma disorder or RSI.

Sometimes these employees when not practicing good ergonomics can be faced with major potential job threatening problem or injuries. A combination of voice recognition and dictation software may be the solution to better seated postures and equipment positions. The new software even helps to remind the users and all employees to stretch It seems like the new voice dictation programs can help remind employees to stay in motion and to take constant breaks keeping their body healthy ergonomically in their seated position.

Office Chairs Online, Time to get Ordering to Ship Early for Christmas

When it comes to the holiday season, every one seems busier and busier as the end of December approaches. By mid December, that precarious time for holiday shipments to arrive on time, buyers are in a rush to just click on the button and pay now to get it shipped in time without having to pay outrageous fees. When it comes to presents that can really keep them remebering you throughout the year and a good gift to keep the receiver comfortable all year, why not consider an ergonomic office chair.

I gave my friend an office chair for Christmas just last year. I have been selling office furniture for years now and had an extra traditional leather bankers office chair sitting in the box, brand new in the back form a return. The customer had not liked the burgundy color once it arrived and at Sit On This Ergonomics, my eBay Store, we feature a 15-day guarantee, so hence I have chairs from time to time just sitting around the office or even my garage if space seems limited. Suddenly, it seemed the perfect gift when I heard him mention the need for one.

He had been complaining about having re-organized his office workspace including painting, buying a new desk and new wall hangings and carpet. It all looked so nice and professional, but of course he had failed to order a new office chair and his old shabby task chair looked about 10 times worse with all of the fresh style all around. Christmas was only weeks away and needless to say, I have no patience and I arrived at his doorstep in a couple of days with a bow and a new chair and well, I won’t mention where I put the bow or how “good” of friends we were at the time but he did enjoy that chair.

The point of this silly story is that for weeks if not months I got calls from him from the office exclaiming how comfortable he was and how happy he was with his new chair. He is a larger sized man, over 6 feet tall and has always had trouble finding an office chair to fit his height. The model of chair that I had given him had a tall cylinder and was similar in design to those that you would see featured in a typical Hollywood film when viewing the Oval Office of the White House or an executive office suite full of lawyers. A traditional leather chair with button tufting, pillow top and wood arms and casters, this chair was large and built to last. And it fit his body frame and type well, and the style of his new office interior, how could I go wrong?

I had given a ton of gifts that Christmas and yet this one in particular was the one that I heard about not only the most times but also for quite a long time. It is nice when giving of yourself, especially during the holiday season when it seems necessary no matter what to give, to find that the person who has received your gift has appreciated the thought and found enjoyment. Finding the right present for that hard to buy relative or office employee can be no harder than finding the right office chair to order online and have shipped directly to the office where the person has the most need. With how easy it can be and with all of the deals online and office chair sellers on sites such as eBay, it is time to start finding the right office chair for your gift recipient.

Picking the Right Office Chair for You

Ergonomics and Your Spine

When seated in front of a computer for long hours of the day, it is hard to remember to keep the proper posture without practice. Ergonomics can help your body health, relieve back pain and help your all over productivity in the office workplace. Any company with an eye to the future and the knowledge that computers and technology are taking over our business environment, these companies would know to invest in the “accessories” and training that go along with such technology.

In order to use anything properly and produce the desired results, training is required. Same applies to your office furniture, including your desk, computer, office chair, office seating and of course keyboard. All things on your desk should be adjusted to be used ergonomically and wisely to get the most satisfying and productive work experience. Most importantly when working in front of a computer for long hours is your office chair.

Your office chair is critical to your comfort and being able to position the rest of your workspace properly is dependent upon your chair being adjustable to your body type. Not every chair fits every person and each user should take into consideration many different factors when picking his or her office chair. Each task at hand also presents another type of need when it comes to styles and mechanisms on an office chair.

A doctor has different needs when it comes to seating than does the standard computer analyst. Although each type of profession, whether doctor or analyst, requires an ergonomic chair, the type of construction of that chair and the mechanisms required for the tasks at hand would differ. A doctor would find a stool with an adjustable height level of more than average to compensate for the differing heights of tables. The same doctor would also find an armless office chair easier to use for range of motion when diagnosing patients. However, a computer technician spending long hours at the desk would require a model of office chair with arms and more ergonomic mechanisms such as lumbar support and knee tilt adjustment to help the body compensate for the long hours spent seated.

When picking your office chair, consider ergonomics and positioning as the key elements instead of being drawn in by a certain “Style” or “name brand” high end model chair that turns out to not work for your particular needs. When shopping for an office chair, keep in mind or make a list of the most important things in your office chair and the things that you desire and this should help you to pick the right office chair for your situation and ergonomics.
