Standard Operators Chair vs. Ergonomic Task Chair…
If you sit for more than three or four hours at work each day, then you shouldn’t really be sitting in a standard operator style chair at all… A ‘task style’ office chair is ideal for longer-term daily use and will offer increased comfort and durability when compared to a standard operator chair, giving significantly better ergonomic support with features such as a tensioned synchro-tilt mechanism, which is ideal for users who sit for longer periods. With a synchro-tilt, the seat and backrest are perfectly tensioned and give you continuous support as you move, reach and flex in your chair – We call it ‘active lumbar support’ which maintains the natural ‘S’ shape of your spine, helping to prevent aches, pains and general fatigue caused by poor posture when sitting. Indeed, many office workers who have been sitting in unsuitable chairs for years are now suffering from a pronounced ‘C’ shaped sitting posture which can lead to painful sciatica, nerve damage and even acute long-term pain.
A good office chair is therefore a real investment in comfort and efficiency and can even help to raise productivity. However, a poor office chair can make people feel irritable, uncomfortable, and worse still, can lead to unnecessary fatigue and can cause long term health issues.
