Does your desk chair leave you sore? Are you unsure if you're getting the most out of your standing workstation and/or physioball? If you answered YES to any of these questions, it's time to learn more about ergonomic support!
Ergonomics is the science of designing objects to optimize them for human use. Proper ergonomic support provides comfort and accessibility while using everyday items. Think about the grip of your steering wheel, the feel of your keyboard, the comfort (or lack thereof) of your car seat or desk chair. Ergonomics is all around you!
Whether your desk chair is your favorite item in your office or if you dread sitting in it everyday, make sure you're sitting properly by following these do's and don't's of sitting in a chair.
Similar to sitting with good posture, standing up at your desk has a lot of health benefits.
When you use a standing desk, you want to maintain optimal posture, similar to if you were sitting down. Use these resources as a reference to ensure your standing desk is properly set up.
Physioballs emphasize the importance of proper posture, promote core stability, and improves balance. If you prefer to sit but want an alternative to your desk chair, using a physioball during the day may be your answer! Learn more about the benefits of physioballs in this section.
