How to equip an office ergonomically?

1. Carefully selected office chair

A chair for healthy sitting should support dynamic seating, follow the shape of your back, have height-adjustable backrest, seat and armrest, be able to adapt to your weight and responds to the movement of your body. The chair is an essential part of the office that you should pay the most attention to.

2. Setup in office and desk adjustment

When working at the computer, it is necessary to monitor the position of your shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists and hands. Too high a desk will force you to lift your shoulders and arms, creating an acute angle at the elbows, forcing the wrists up. Your desk should be at a height to keep a comfortable 90° angle at your knees and elbows. Generally, the height of your desk should be approximately 70 cm from the floor. The top of the screen should be at your eye level when sitting upright. Never place the screen or keyboard so that you have to turn your head or torso towards it.

3. Changing work position in the office

Height-adjustable desks that allow changing the working positions are an ideal option. Changing the positions relieve your spine and musculoskeletal system. Furthermore, modern offices are equipped with zones with ergonomically designed armchairs and sofas that allow you to change the environment and work in a different position. And do not forget to do short exercises during working hours. You refresh your mind and stretch stiff muscles and spine.
