Are You Sure You Are Sitting Comfortably?
As work hours increase, reported back pain in the general population is also rising - so much so that over 70% of us suffer from back pain at some point in our working lives (Source ONS).
But it doesn't end there - without ergonomic and supporting seating systems we can develop long term bad posture, repetitive strain injury, eyestrain, carpal tunnel syndrome, increased stress, headaches and tension. It's enough to send you back to bed- and the doctor....
When we address bad seating issues, we increase productivity by contributing to a healthier, happier working environment and significantly reduce time lost to sickness amongst the workforce.
Choosing the correct chair.....
Chair Usage when the same chair is used every day, it should allow the user to change and adapt the seating position frequently.
Firstly, and crucially, we need a chair that allows us to site in a position that offers the right support for our back, so we can achieve a well-supported and natural balanced position for our spine.
Secondly, we need to sit so that our pelvis is rotated slightly forward and our thighs are angled in a gentle downward direction, encouraging good blood flow to the feet, which should be flat to the floor, or perhaps on a well-adjusted footrest.
Arrange your work so that you are mostly looking straight ahead. Sit back in your chair and rest your upper body against the backrest.
