Ergohuman Plus and Ergonomics

In today’s world, space is becoming tighter and so, when planning an office, or where your office space should be in your own home, you need to look at space-saving devices, multi-purpose items and, amongst all of that, how to keep working hours and the non-working hours distinct from each other. But we also need to treat ourselves, don’t we?
So, as regards to working from home, if sitting occupies a high percentage of your day (we’re talking work and also those ‘me’ hours of television, gaming and Facebook), finding the right ergonomic, ‘all singing all dancing’, chair is a win-win situation, right?
Well, I’ve found the right one for you. It’s the Ergohuman Plus Office Chair. We’re talking top end of the market here, a chair that stands out from the rest and can be a bit of a talking point because, not only is it a handsome chair, it’s also fully adjustable, almost like having your name written on it. By that, I mean that when you have used the single lever to make the chair of your dreams adjust to your personal preferences as in seat depth, seat height and back tilt, and when you’ve made use of that seat tilt option which gets you in a more alert sitting position, who knows what heights you might climb to? In work and in gaming!
If you go for mesh upholstery (I did), your ergonomic office chair can be made more to your idea of handsome. And with that polished aluminium frame, it’s like wearing the best watch or jewellery. Does black make you feel good? Or what about green or red? And if you can’t make your mind up, why not have the seat pad in one colour and the backrest in another? It’s all about individual taste, isn’t it? Maybe you want to fit in with everyone else, or maybe that naughty-cum-playful streak within you wants to let others know that you’re, well, this is who you are.
To make things even better, you can accessorise your Ergohuman Plus with a legrest – ideal when you’re in pensive thought, or in Facebook mode. The brilliant thing about the legrest is that, as it is attached to your Ergohuman Plus, it can be tucked away under the seat pad when not in use, so you don’t have to use any space for a stand-alone footrest. Get the back tilt right, put your feet up (shoes off, of course!) and dream on.
If you’re in working (or gaming) mode, make use of that forward seat tilt, which makes you feel as though you are sitting more upright than usual and therefore more alert. And, if you’re really short of space, or you could do this simply for pleasure and ergonomic effectiveness, add a notebook arm to your trusty steed, which allows you to connect your laptop safely to your Ergohuman Plus and create a oneness with what you’re involved with in that moment.
Of course, the Ergohuman Plus + legrest + notebook arm will be effective both in your office and in your home but, in the office, use the chair only for working, as gaming and Facebook may not go down well with the boss.

Ergohuman – from Manufacture to Delivery

References are so important, aren’t they? Okay, they’re essential when applying for a job but they’re also important for many other needs.
In this moment, I’m talking chairs. Not just any chair but ergonomic office chairs. Technology in tandem with ergonomics have now produced many wonders in the office chair market but this doesn’t mean that every one of those chairs is going to be suitable for you. After all, we’re different shapes and sizes, different jobs demand different things from our personal frame and build and then there’s the other point of attraction. Yes, the ergonomic office chairs of today can be ‘very becoming (mine’s the Ergohuman Mirus)’ and so that ‘eye candy’ which normally applies to spotting good lookers might also apply to other items too. If the chair gives you that personal buzz, joining forces with it every day gives you a personal satisfaction and getting your head round the complexities of work feel naturally comfortable.

If I was ready to buy another ergonomic office chair, I would look for a supplier who could provide me with genuine references from purchasers of the models in which I was registering a personal interest. ‘Great’ may do little for me but to hear that a chair is a great piece of kit, that the user’s back clicked into place when using the chair correctly, or maybe even that someone is now feeling all-round benefits in both work and home life would make me look more into that particular office chair. I’d also be interested in feedback on the supplier and subsequent delivery time, a bit like those yellow stars you see against the details of well-seasoned Ebay sellers, telling you that they regularly come up with the goods and services expected when buying from strangers.
Me? I’d probably choose another Ergohuman Mirus, once again with mesh upholstery. Now that I know this chair and its adjustments can meet my personal needs, I might look at other chairs in the Ergohuman range e.g. the Nefil and the Ergohuman Plus, as this company, the supplier service and the delivery time, have already been proven to me. If I change anything, it would be the colour, as there’s a fantastic range to choose from.

I don’t need a new Mirus chair yet, as the Ergohuman range of chairs are very sustainable but I am going to treat myself to a footrest or a Office Chair with an intergrated Leg Rest, wow. Serving also as a leg rest when my chair is in a reclined position, this little added extra is going to heighten my pleasure during those laid back hours.
That’s me sorted … .

Okamura Luce Chair

The Okamura Range – Getting the Right Chair for the Situation.

In an office environment, who should pay for the ergonomic office chair – the employer or the employee? This is a difficult question to answer and one which, if not addressed, could lead to greater questions being asked later.

A young worker fresh out of school will have an equally fresh body and the aches and pains that an older member of staff may suffer may not be issues. A more mature and well-experienced worker may have developed ageing disabilities, such as arthritis and rheumatism (though these problems do sometimes develop in very young people) and sitting for long periods of time could cause stiffness in joints, muscles and tendons, exacerbating an existing problem or bringing on new discomfort and pain.

Sickness causes absence and work may become delayed. Also, staff may become stressed through doubling up on work volume and expensive temporary staff may not be able to make the grade with expectations, all contributing to a drop in business standards and resulting in disheartened customers.

Ignoring people’s needs is a risky business and can end up costing a lot more than the price of a good ergonomic chair. Of course, if you know little about ergonomic office furniture, you could overspend and maybe even buy a chair that is not suitable for the staff member’s needs or the job responsibilities.

Websites bring the world of ergonomics into your own office, where you can look at designs, study the specifications, get to know the customisation and styling options and also consider the optional extras. Designs will be different, so getting the right ergonomic office chair is no different to getting the right pair of shoes. You’re looking for comfort and support and, just as high heels are not the best for hill-walking, some chairs will not be right for some people or for particular tasks.

Like good cars, the company name of good chairs goes before them and Okamura is the Rolls Royce of chairs, offering lots of changes on the same theme. While one might need the adjustments that come with the Contessa chair or the CP chair, the different specifications offered by the Luce chair or the Cruise workstation might have added extras that address the job requirements.

Lumbar support really is a must, so this should be top of your list when choosing your chair, as correct back support will prevent or alleviate pain and lessen any back-related absences from work. A wise employer will purchase sensible chairs and gain the respect of his or her workforce because of such a caring attitude. Payback and savings will be evident in the success of that business.
