How Does Ergonomic Furniture Improve Productivity?

21 March 2022

Beating Chronic Pain and Boosting Productivity

If you spend most of your time working at a desk, it’s likely you know the stresses of chronic back pain. For those of us that sit for 8 hours or more, aches and pains in the back, shoulders, and neck, are an all too common complaint. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. The increasing popularity of ergonomic furniture across the market is not just thanks to savvy marketing - it really works. Ergonomic office chairs and support accessories for those who have adopted a standing desk can work wonders to alleviate poor posture, chronic back pain, and decrease workplace stress. It’s no wonder you’re seeing these products everywhere! Let’s take a closer look at how ergonomic furniture could help improve your workplace wellbeing, and optimise your productivity

The Benefits of Ergonomic Furniture

Preventing The Stress And Distraction Of Pain

When we’re trying to work while ignoring a sore back or tight muscle in our shoulder, we’re going to be less productive as we’re distracted by the pain. Alternatively, attempting to pad out a non-ergonomic work chair with makeshift back support like cushions or extra padding can leave us frustrated and still in pain, as well as constantly adjusting the supports we have in place. Trying to integrate the benefits of standing whilst working without a properly adjusted desk can also only exacerbate pain and poor posture while we’re trying to help ourselves!

At the most basic level, ergonomic furniture removes the burden of pain from our working day, and lets us focus on what’s important in comfort. The combination of specialist posture support, fatigue-beating features, full adjustability and various height options make ergonomic furniture the ultimate in minimising workplace related aches and strains.

Keeping The Pace With Flexible Working

Your standard office chair offers little support, probably has a broken wheel - and offers a one size fits all support. The problem is, the modern office often centres around collaboration and desk sharing, and needs furniture that can keep all users comfortable and productive, without wasting time swapping out furniture.

Thankfully, Flexispot’s ergonomic office chairs are built with a deep understanding of the modern work environment at the foundation of our process. The FlexiChair BackSupport Office Chair BS8, for example, is one of our most popular ergonomic desk chairs. This is thanks to its quick-adjust height and back tilt options and foldable armrests - making adjusting every aspect of your seated support quick and effortless.

When you know you can rely on your office furniture to support the entire team comfortably with minimal fuss, you know you can focus on the project at hand, and achieve more with your working day.

Offering A Change Of Perspective 

Sometimes, all it takes is a change of perspective to boost our productivity. When we’re deep in a project or task, whether that’s something that takes a lot of brain power, or a tedious administration effort, refreshing our energy and bringing a new focus to the activity can help boost our focus and banish fatigue.

A height adjustable desk can be a great way to combine flexible working and ergonomic support to optimise your health and wellbeing, as well as your workplace productivity. Height adjustable desks allow you to alter your desk height from low to high, so you can work at ease whether seated or standing.

One option for a height adjustable desk is the Comhar All-in-One Standing Desk from us here at Flexispot. This desk offers an adjustable height range between 71cm and 121cm with a smooth and silent motor system, allowing you to change up your working style as often as you need to with minimal hassle. The option for up to 4 height presets also allows multiple users, which is ideal if you're working from home in a multifunctional space, or sharing a desk with colleagues in the office. Oh, and the anti-collison function recognises objects in the desktop’s path and prevents contact - meaning your misplaced coffee cups stay intact and your caffeine, and desk, stay protected!
