Mesh Office Chairs
A healthy sitting position is one in which your head is balanced on your vertebral column and your neck muscles are relaxed.
You should sit in an open posture with your chest leading and shoulders back. This creates the correct balance between neck, shoulder and upper limb muscles.
Your lumbar spine should be upright and knees below the level of your hips. Increasing the angle between the trunk and thigh encourages the spine into an upright posture which may reduce and even disc pressure.
This is why it is so important to choose the right office chair either for yourself or your office staff. You need one which allows you to independently adjust the lumbar support, seat depth and height as well as arm positioning. After all, the last thing you want is employees who develop back problems and consequently have to take time off work.
If you take a look at the image below, sitting incorrectly leaves your head sitting anterior to your body resulting in tension to your neck muscles.
Additionally, your shoulders are rounded and chest muscles shortened, increasing the risk of developing a work related upper limb disorder.
Also, your lumbar spine is slumped and knees are above the level of your hips. This leads to increased pressure through the lumbar discs and excessive ligament and muscle stretch in your lumbar spine.
Therefore, we recommend the Loreto Mesh Chair which has all the ergonomic features you need to ensure that you do not experience any discomfort while sitting for prolonged periods.
