Do you experience pain, headaches or fatigue while you’re working no matter how many cups of coffee you chug? If your productivity is suffering even when you get a full night’s sleep, you may have an ergonomics problem. By adding some simple ergonomic solutions to your workspace, you can be more comfortable and increase your productivity.
We found a lot of ergonomic products in the consumer market aren’t as great as they could be, that’s why we research and curate the best ergonomic products helping you be healthier, happier and more productive. Here’s a couple tips on how to improve your work set up.
Get Your Computer Eye Level
When you have a laptop or desktop screen that is lower than your eye level, you often adjust your body by hunching over and leaning forward to be able to see better. Over time you may get headaches, backaches among other ailments.
Monitor arms help eliminate these issues by being able to position your monitor screen at the optimal height and angle for you to be able to work.
Don’t Just Sit
The second leading reason for an American to see a healthcare provider is due to lower back pain and one of the main contributors to lower back pain is static sitting. Sitting still for long periods can cause hip pain, back pain, neck pain, and more, especially if you have bad posture or don’t use an ergonomic chair.
The Onda all-mesh work chair is the latest in ergonomic technology. This beautiful chair has powerful ergonomic features and intuitive adjustability, that puts you in control of the way you sit. It’s easy to adjust each ergonomic feature (including seat height adjustment, a 360-degree pivot and 9 arm rest height positions, proprietary syncro-technology, 5-position back tilt lock, adjustable lumbar support, and more) to fit your unique body.
For a more adventurous option, Swopper is an innovative active chair designed to be a therapeutic intervention for people with back pain. Swopper’s 3D technology creates a comfortable, hip-opening, hands-free tilt forward, a 15-degree lateral motion adjustment for optimal spinal alignment, and allows you to bounce, spin and sway.
A great way to encourage more movement is to stand up while you work. Because standing can be harsh on your feet, ankles, and knees, consider an anti-fatigue mat designed to reduce strain and fatigue, and increase blood flow. This floor mat also features a built-in anti-microbial formulation and is non-toxic and phthalate free.
