7 Best Ergonomic Office Furniture to Use

A lot of people are working for almost eight hours a day and sometimes, they don't get enough physical activities they need. This scenario can lead to back, neck and shoulder pain. However, this problem can be avoided. Companies must provide ergonomic office furniture. Ergonomic furniture can improve posture and blood flow. It can also increase the enthusiasm of employees to work, resulting to a better work performance. Here are the best ergonomic office furniture to choose from:

1

Embody by Herman Miller

Embody by Herman Miller

Considered as one of the top five ergonomic office furniture to buy around the world. Dubbed as the world’s “First Health-Positive Chair,” designers Jeff Weber and Bill Stumpf created Embody specifically for creative types who spend long hours sitting in front of computers. With its spine-like back, four-layer seat and host of knobs and levers for optimum adjustment, Embody automatically conforms to its user's every movement to increase blood circulation, which, of course, keeps oxygen flowing to the brain and decreases heart rate.

SomaComfort Chair

The strength of Soma’s signature chair is the back. The tall, weirdly shaped spine is manufactured to reduce upper back, neck and shoulder tension while still supporting the lower back; that is, this chair is all about improving your posture. On the downside, it’s not nearly as attractive as some of the other options on this list.

Humanscale Freedom Office Chair

With a backrest that automatically adapts to your body shape and headrest that moves according to how far you recline, the Humanscale Freedom Office Chair offers the latest in ergonomic technology. Plus, the snug cushions mould to the shape of your body. At nearly a thousand pounds, it’s a lot to cough up for a chair, but worthwhile if you want one of the best on the market.

IKEA Markus

This is not a good looking chair. But it’s $200, which is dirt cheap for a chair that won’t slowly kill you. The lumbar support offers ergonomic comfort and the mesh back makes it an airy, breathable option. Plus, because IKEAs are nearly everywhere, you can take it for a test drive before you commit — a very big selling point considering how much you’re about to use it.

Leap by Steelcase

Leap by Steelcase

The wellness-focused Leap design team developed a slouch-reducing, productivity-boosting office chair that can actually be good for you. Imagine that! And like other ergonomic office chairs, Leap sports impressive eco-spec. Ninety-eight percent recyclable by weight and made from 30 percent recycled content, the non-off-gassing Leap is Cradle to Cradle Silver rated and is blanket wrapped for domestic delivery instead of boxed to reduce packaging waste.

Comfort Operator Chair

Comfort Operator Chair

It’s not a thing of beauty, but the Comfort Operator Chair is good value for its specification. The three levers allow you to vary the height of the chair and tilt the back rest and seat. Also, the curved foam provides good ergonomic support. This is the reliable Volkswagen – rather than the flashy Ferrari – of the office chair world. Available with or without arms.

Haworth Zody

American Physical Therapy Association wants to look good — Haworth even commissioned upscale German design shop Ito Design to help — but the result is rather bland. Instead, focus on the science behind the chair, especially the asymmetrical adjustment system designed in conjunction with the Human Performance Institute at the University of Michigan that lets sitters target problem areas and conform the chair to their natural body shapes.
