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.

Choosing Proper Office Furniture for Special Needs: Part 1

When searching for office chairs, it is easy to assume that one size fits all. However, to practice good ergonomics, the office chair can have many features designed to help the users who fall out of the range of normal size, has special health considerations, has an unusual job or works with unique machinery. The most popular extra features and options for an ergonomic chair are discussed here.

Proper armrest support is critical to alleviating back and neck pain when seated for long hours at the computer typing or using the mouse. Most armrest are designed for the user to take small break throughout the typing experience, answering phone calls, conversations, etc., when the user has the armrest for additional support and an armrest is needed.

Adjustable arms with height and width adjustments are recommended to get the proper elbow and wrist placement. This allows the user to put the armrest at the precise location for optimum elbow support. Some individuals have chronic forearm pain and manufacturers of ergonomic custom chairs have started to feature an option of a tilting armrests which would match the user’s natural motions forward and back.

Your spine is equally as important and good lower back relief comes from maintaining your natural curve in the lower lumbar (back) region. Most chairs don’t accommodate for this and it is absolutely necessary for proper lumbar support and comfort ability in the long term when seated for long periods of time at employment. Some users may have a large lordosis which is a fancy name for the lower back curve. These users may require an additional lumbar support bolster or pillow to help keep the natural curve.

For people with sensitive lower backs, an adjustable lumbar support may be necessary to truly find the comfort level desired when seated. Many new task chair models are already starting to feature this as a standard option because of the benefits of fitting that support your body type.

Posture Knee Office Chairs, Any Relation to a Jungle Gym Structure?

When walking my dog this morning, a beautiful husky shepherd named Hardy, a good walking companion, I decided to take a different route and go by a neighborhood park and the small children’s section. They had a small diggin device similar to a tractor with arms to help the youngster to lift the shovel and dig in to the sand in order to pick it up and move it to a different location. When first sitting in this device, the child was taking the same position that one would take in the posture knee kneeling office chair. It grabbed my interest as sometimes I can be silly when it comes to my profession and obsession over proper ergonomics and what a difference it can make to sit ergonomically.

So, being the geek that I am, I walked over and asked the child if he was comfortable. Now without any “data” and being that this was not exactly a scientific experiment, the subject of the project being currently 7, I still decided to ask. He said of course, “whatever” when asked about his comfort in the shoveling machine similar to the posture knee and then screamed at the girl next to him about throwing sand around his feet.

Not exactly the answer I was looking for but it prompted me to start out my day with a nice good laugh and move on. So, of course if still got me to start the day with a smile, and smiles like ergonomics can help to ease the tension. I have a friend who was recently telling me that some smiling faces are incredible and it definitely helped me to keep my dimples showing all morning to talk with this young man.

Office Chairs and the Easy Way To Buy Online Through eBay Stores

I logged onto eBay earlier today to check on how the office chair market was looking these days. It had been awhile since I had last browsed the entire ergonomic office chair category. When pulling up the eBay search term “office chair” in the eBay search box on the eBay Stores Page, I found 2,790 different office chairs. Makes you think, huh? If someone can’t find the right model in that selection of chairs, I am not sure where they plan to go to purchase. You can pull up all types of different models and chair categories when it comes to even the most standard task chair on eBay.

When pulling up mesh, leather, executive, fabric, big and tall and even posture knee kneeling chairs, one is sure to find hundreds of listings. for instance, when typing in the keyword terms “Mesh Office Chair” onto Ebay Stores seach engine Home page wesbite one can find 305 different models of office chairs. The other day, I had a friend who was searching online for a posture knee chair because she ahd heard about them from a co-worker. Knowing that I worked in the online ergonomics field, she came to ask me where to go online for office chairs of this type.

I sold several different models of posture knee office chairs in my online eBay store for ergonomic products and directed her there for several models to search from, we usually have 7-8 different models in stock to choose from. She went there and when searching online through eBay Stores today I was slighty surprised to find that not many people actually carried such a model of chair. But when they did, wow, what a deal and a variety. Your average posture knee office chairs come in a large variety of models and have many different functions and options to choose from.

My friend who had just recently heard about these chairs from a fellow employee said that when she first heard about these types of ergonomic chairs, she had figured the price to be probably pretty high for how popular and highly ergonomic they were. Everything that she said she had read about these chairs, even through my own articles on the benefits of the Posture Knee Office Chairs, had praised the amazing affects that using the posture knee chairs seemed to have on their users. And when looking on eBay, she was shocked to find them at a most reasonable price. For the price of your standard task office chair, one can purchase a posture knee Office Chairp at a very reasonable price.

For between $100-120 you can get a designer posture knee office chair on eBay, most featuring Free Shipping and a money back guarantee.
