A typical nine-to-five job arrests movement for at least eight hours per day. This means one’s spine is bearing the brunt of stress due to sedentary position. In order to combat back problems, provide adequate blood circulation in the body, aid in concentration and increase productivity, it is important for companies to equip their offices with ergonomic furniture.

Property owners who are renting out furnished office space may also do well by investing in ergonomic pieces over traditional ones to attract more clients. These furniture provide back support to users, making accomplishing tasks easier and faster.

• Chair – An ergonomic chair has a small flush against the lower spine which curves downwards to the back. It provides alignment to the ears, shoulders and pelvis, and maintains the natural inward curvature of the lower spine. Additional paddings on the seat, armrests and headrest help relax the muscles in these areas. This type of chair can be reclined, and allows the user to slide the seat forward and backward and adjust the armrests.

• Monitor mount – Maximum work efficiency can be achieved by installing adjustable monitor stands. These provide tilt options according to the user’s eye level, reducing neck strains and eye irritations.

• Desk – Ergonomic workstations provide height-adjustable features for those looking for standing work options. They are also known as motorised desks as they provide USB and power plug-in ports.

• Keyboard – User-friendly keyboards are the improvised versions of the common keyboard. They are designed in such a way that they allow free arm movement and more room for finger dexterity.

• Mouse – Specially designed to eliminate wrist pain, it uses laser technology to operate, and it has a USB port and supporting plug-in ports.
