If there is any one factor that you can change to make spending eight hours a day in an office easier, it’s your chair. There is no shortage of evidence proving that being stuck in a chair for too long can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and worsen back pain. In fact, sitting too much is even called worse than smoking. Many people who have office jobs develop problems like numbness, spinal misalignment, joint pain, neck pain, and herniated discs — usually from sitting too long on a poor quality chair without support. While you probably do not want to spend a lot of money on a chair, a high-quality ergonomic chair is an investment in your health, comfort and productivity. Two separate studies, published in 1990 and 2003, found productivity goes up more than 17% when individuals work in an ergonomic setting with an adjustable chair.
Sometimes less is more. The Walter is flat surface top with a drawer on each side. The rolled and hexagon steel legs gives the desk a feeling of floating in the air. The top and drawers are made from reclaimed oak wood making this one of the most environmentalist desks around. A little bit of the right music can stimulate and improve concentration and production. Or so I have heard. But do you really need an excuse to have a desk with built in speakers? Behind cabinet doors are two 4inch high efficiency full range drivers with titanium cones and paired with a 1/4inch subwoofer. The speakers can be used with wireless streaming for a wire free work surface. The Laura desk is writing desk that is simple yet functional and modern. The three cubbies at the back end hides two ports back in the shadow. There are two angled drawers for simple storage solutions for small items like pens, paperclips, smartphones and notebooks. The Locus Sphere workstation is another standing desk.
This reasonably priced chair has the look and feel of a high-end brand with deep, ergo-layered body pillows that offer the perfect combination of comfort and support. The chair is made from eco-friendly bonded leather with a BIM Active lumbar that pivots as you move for continuous lumbar support. Adjust the height of the padded armrests with the push of a button, and use the convenient cable actuated levers to control the lift and lock-out features. The Serta Back in Motion chair also offers unique posture-correcting tilt technology that actually tilts your pelvis forward when you lean. This keeps your back in a beneficial neutral position to avoid pressure on your discs and promote spinal movement. After a few days, you’ll start to feel the benefits of a comfortable and supportive seat that can get you through your long work day.
