Ergonomics is the
science of adjusting your work environment to fit your body to provide
total comfort and support, and increased productivity. At your desk,
a properly used ergonomic chair can also help reduce the occurrence of
many work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs). Among these are Cumulative
Trauma Disorders (CTDs) or repetitive strain injuries (RSIs), including
carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis.
With these conditions, your symptoms include swelling and stiffness in
the fingers, hands and wrists, headaches, and pain and stiffness in the
shoulders, back and neck. Frequent adjustments to your sitting
position (every hour) is your key to achieving maximum results
from your ergonomic seating. That's why every office chair from PCchairs
features user-friendly controls for quick and easy adjustments
while in a seated position. Remember, every time you change your position,
you exercise new muscle sets, allowing others to rest, preventing injury
and fatigue. The bottom line is that ergonomic seating, actively used,
can truly enhance your personal comfort and well-being!
