Ergonomic Office Chairs

We live in a designer world, where a dress is no longer a dress but a Stella McCartney number, a suit is a Versace and a car is referred to as the Porsche or some other ‘to die for’ brand name on four wheels.

So, why shouldn’t you refer to your own ergonomic office chair as a Nefil, a Mirus or a Ergohuman?

Why not?

Okay, it’ll be ‘out of the norm’ but think of the good advice you’ll be imparting to your family, friends and colleagues.

What I’m saying is – there’s an office chair but then there’s an ergonomic office chair and, unlike the designer ‘must haves’ mentioned earlier, a good ergonomic office chair doesn’t cost the earth.

When talking about cars, a firefighter friend told me that there are certain cars which stand up better to accident damage (e.g. the Alexis) and the same can be said for your office chair. Some will simply be office chairs, while others will give you additional support and improve your posture.

So, if you are shopping for your own ergonomic office chair, start (and, might I add, finish) with the Ergohuman range. Of the three I have already mentioned, all have those important adjustments, like seat height, seat tilt and that all-important lumbar support section, meaning the design isn’t ‘off the peg’ but made to measure, for you, whoever you are.

You can also go for additional extras, like a headrest and a leg rest, so think the whole picture when you are deciding what’s right for you. What does your job entail?

The duties of your job might make certain features more important to you. For example, that seat tilt. If your job means you are up and down all day long, a forward tilt will actually aid you in standing up, taking some of that pressure of your legs which normally comes from getting up from a more horizontal position.

Once you’ve chosen the right model for you, you can move on to choosing the right colour and the Ergohuman range do much more than black and blue. I’d go for a subtle autumn shade and I’d choose a mesh upholstery, as it’s durable, comfortable and easy to care for.

Are you starting to get the picture? You know, shopping for an ergonomic office chair can be more fun than shopping for something to wear. With the right advice and professional support, you won’t be thinking of taking it back the next day.

Nefil Office Chair

The higher up you get in office life, the less likely you are to take a real lunch break. And office life doesn’t only occur in offices. A strange thing to say I know but even a manager in a residential home is working in an office, so you see what I mean. While computers were to reduce paperwork, I suppose they did reduce the ‘paper’ element but they didn’t reduce the need to fill in forms, hence the need to be comfortable when you’re sitting at your desk.

I love to sit with a straight back but, referring back to that manager in a residential home, or any job where that budget seems to overwhelm you, you can find yourself glued to your seat, tossing figures around in your mind and easily forgetting that you should have gone home hours ago. And that’s when I realised I wasn’t sitting upright anymore but was, at times, sprawling across my desk and suffering the consequent pain.

A good ergonomic office chair like the Nefil Office Chair will encourage you to sit up properly. It will have all those whizzes and bangs that, when you adjust them to suit your frame, you’ll want to own those changes, to make use of them and, as you’ll find out, to benefit from them.

Take the Nefil Office Chair model as an example. Coming in a mesh upholstery, it’s a breathable material which is already giving you comfort. With its adjustments of seat height, seat tilt and glide, you can get your perfect sitting position. Have you ever sunk into a sofa that is too low and too squidgy and, though it might feel good as you drop into it, it’s not really a comfortable experience? Well, getting that seat pad of the Nefil just right for you means that you’re guaranteed comfort, that you can enjoy the experience and that coming and going, as office life demands, become second nature actions.

The Nefil ergonomic office chair also has an in-built lumbar support panel which, when you’ve adjusted the seat back to make that lumbar panel meet with your lumbar region, you will be hugging your back and keeping those all-important internal organs in comfortable working order. It seems strange to talk about internal organs when talking about chairs, so think of carrying a bottle of wine in a suitcase, without having first wrapped the bottle in a tee-shirt or two and then fixing it in position inside your suitcase. with more rigid objects. Something’s going to give, isn’t it? While you might b able to replace the bottle of wine the same day, getting the pain out of your body as a result of sitting badly isn’t going to be so quick. So, yes, supporting your lower back really is important, as it goes towards supporting all-round good health.

And when that Nefil ergonomic office chair comes in a super colour of your own choice, it’ll feel just as good as that personally-chosen wine tastes.

The Ergohuman ‘Enjoy’ Does Just That!

The name ‘Enjoy’ for an ergonomic office chair makes you like it straightaway, doesn’t it? Still, we’re inquisitive creatures and would need to know a little more before purchasing, wouldn’t we?

Well, the Enjoy ergonomic office chair is one of the stunning designs offered in the Ergohuman range and I always advise that this is the best place to start looking if you want a seriously effective chair. With autoflex zones which give lumbar support, a single lever for making many of the adjustments (including back height , back tilt and seat slide), three-dimensional arm rest adjustments (height, width and angle) and the option of a headrest, this ergonomic office chair is serious business when it comes to looking after the human frame.

The chair frame is very inviting to look at, the back support giving the impression of a tree and its branches. To me, that has the psychological feeling of growth and that’s something that is needed in the work environment. Gone are the days of chairs designed simply to sit on; today’s chairs have to sell themselves by looking good as well.

The upholstery I would go for is mesh, as it offers so many advantages. It’s breathable and thus helps to keep you cool longer. It’s longer-lasting, as the mesh is tightly-woven. It’s easy to look after, simply needing the occasional wipe over to keep it looking clean and fresh. And, as for colour, you can have straightforward black or blue, or go for a more interesting red, green, orange, burgundy, white or grey. Teamed with a white, black, or silver frame (for me, in that order), you’ve got a nice piece of equipment to help you with your job. It looks good, feels good and so do you!

Choosing an Ergonomic Office Chair

A quality office chair will do wonders for people who spend the maximum time sitting and working on computers or at a office desk. An Ergonomic chair is apt for those people who suffer from leg and chronic problems due to sitting for so many hours together. A chair that makes your posture mechanically correct is appropriate which suggests diminished strain on lower part of your back and less back ache complaints. An office chair apart from offering a comfortable position for working also plays a role in boosting the productivity.

There are some vital things that you need to consider while shopping for an office chair. The first thing on the list is the height of the seat. The adjustment of your office chair should be easy even when you are sitting. A lever should be attached to the chair that adjusts the height if the chair as per your requirement. This will permit you to rest your feet on the ground with legs straight and arms on the desk to make you feel more relaxed.

The next important aspect that is worth considering is the width and the depth of the seat. The chair should be of immense comfort for the users with the seat having enough depth which will enable you to comfortably relax next to the backrest ant at the same time regulate the chair angle. If in case you have a propensity to stoop in the chair then you can easily adjust an ergonomic office chair as per your need and will give support to your lower back. The back support should have a broad backrest which can be easily adjusted while sitting.

The arm rests are not mandatory in an ergonomic office chair but if in case you require them go for arm rests that can be easily adjusted and permits you to set your arms comfortably, at the same time soothing your shoulders. As far as materials of the office chair are concerned there are various materials to select from, but an ergonomic office chair should always be stuffed for more comfort. For those who sit for long duration, the chair should be breathable. Two chairs that tick most of the boxes and is similar to the Herman Miller Aeron Chair are the Ergohuman Chair and the Enjoy Chair

The latest Ergonomic Chair in the family is the Mirus Office Chair

An office chair should enable you to move around liberally and at the same time permit you to have a reach on all the things with least strain. Choosing a chair that suits your needs should not be a tough task with so many outstanding manufacturers providing the best office furniture.

Here are some guides

Determine what options you need or want in an executive chair. Do you really need or want leather, or will a vinyl or cloth chair do just as well. Are you interested in a high back or do you want a more conservative mid-back chair that will work just as well.

Consider your size. If you’re a larger or taller individual, you need a chair with a generous seat. You may also benefit from a chair made especially for taller or bigger people.

Set a budget for your new chair. Believe it or not, an executive leather chair can run from about 100 dollars upwards into the thousands. Set a budget and clear it with your accounting department, then you know what type of executive chair to shop for and in which price range to stay.

Search office chair sites such as simply-ergonomic.co.uk. These specialty sites have a wide range of options in executive chairs and have prices that are super competitive. Be sure to calculate shipping costs into the budget you have set.

Look for an executive chair with a warranty. Most chairs have at least a 1 year warranty, but some have a 3 or 5 year warranty. You may be buying a longer lasting chair when you select the one with the better warranty.

You’d like to splurge on an executive leather chair that you’ve been craving for some time. Now that the business is finally seeing black after crawling out from under the capital investment loan, you might be able to splurge on the leather chair for the executive office. Here’s how to get that executive leather chair without the whole accounting department calling foul.

I already have my office chair but, if you need to buy one for yourself, I would suggest that you look no further than the Ergohuman chair range. I have the enjoy office chair, though my colleague swears by the Enjoy office chair model but it really depends on what you’re looking for. One of the points that should affect your decision is your body frame but the nature of your job is also important. What I mean by that second consideration is do you sit down all day long or are you always up and down, does the job involve a lot of twisting (maybe your filing cabinets are right next to you and you don’t have to actually leave your seat to put something away).

For me, the seat tilt and slide and the backrest tilt mean that I can get my back and my bottom to fit comfortably into the Nefil chair, so that I am actually using its magnificent features to support the whole of my back. That means that I am making use of the lumbar support that the chair back gives. My girlfriend likes the Enjoy office chair, as it has autoflex zones in the lumbar support feature and this does it for her.

All of the Ergohuman chair models are to die for, as a lot of thinking has gone into their design. They all have many features and adjustments and I suppose the most noticeable difference is the look of the chair. I just love the simple look and the ergohuman’s chair back from the rear reminds me of the old-style beer bottle opener. The chair looks good and makes me feel good. With its ribbed look back support, the Enjoy appeals to my friend and that’s fine.

One thing we both agreed on was the choice of fabric. Though the leather is very nice, we much preferred the airiness of the mesh. It’s easy to wipe clean and is a chair that breathes, if you know what I mean.

I’m really pleased that I was guided towards the Ergohuman range of chairs. It was sound advice and that’s why I am passing the same information on. There’s an interesting range of colours to choose from as well. And as regards to that sound advice … don’t forget to pass it on.

Working From Home

Things have completely changed from 10 years ago, many people are now working from home full time and part time. Many home offices are squeezed into a small bedrooms, or a corner of the living room or kitchen. The office furniture that was used then was
often bony old kitchen chairs, and tables, which is simply not adequate these days to accommodate computers printers filing etc etc.
Now that more people are working from home they tend to work longer hours as they save time on the commute down the stairs. A comfortable work environment is now essential such as an ergonomic chair such as the Ergohuman Chair or the Enjoy Chair.

These chairs are excellent value and very comfortable giving you a
better posture. The desk is also so important and these days a Computer Workstation is useful to facilitate all of your home office essentials such as computers, printers, scanners, media storage and filing. The Computer Hideaway does all that the workstation does but closes up into a cupboard when you are done for the day.
