What are Ergonomic Office Chairs & Their Benefits?
Ergonomic office chairs are designed to provide maximum comfort and support for your body while you are working. They are designed to reduce stress on your neck, back and shoulders, as well as improve your posture. Ergonomic chairs also help promote better circulation and reduce fatigue, making them ideal for long hours in the office. With their adjustable features, ergonomic chairs can be tailored to fit any individual’s needs. Moreover, they are often stylish and come in a variety of colors and materials that can add a touch of flair to any workspace. Investing in an ergonomic office chair is an important step towards creating an ergonomically correct workplace that will help you stay productive and healthy!
Case Study 1: Examining the Benefits of Implementing Ergonomic Office Chairs at a Government Office
Department of Treasury and Finance (DTF) were making a significant investment replacing the many hundreds of task chairs in the building. Having had an internationally branded chair to this point and were getting many staff complaints and backpain over the years, DTF underwent a lengthy and thorough trial and selection process involving their staff, their own in-house selection panel and external ergonomist consultation.
Case Study 2: Observing the Effects of Installing Ergonomic Chairs in a Healthcare Setting
Henry Schein saw the Task chairs as a significant investment and knew it was the one thing in the new office fitout that they had to get right for their staff. The Hero® Chair was subsequently selected over a handful of other chairs they had on trial.
“We put 160 of your Hero Chairs into our site in Sydney 12 months ago and have not had a single complaint from a staff member. We have a couple of staff members with walking challenges and some with back issues and they have found your Hero Chair to be wonderful for them.”
Renzo, –Regional Safety, Security & Facilities Manager, ANZ
Vision Australia had problems with new chairs at another office location fitout causing multiple staff complaints. They wanted to prevent this happening again, and ensure the staff would be comfortably supported.
“Having implemented the Hero Chair for two organizations now I cannot speak highly enough of the quality and comfort of the chairs. They are easily adjustable and provide full functionality to meet ergonomic standards as well as being aesthetically pleasing for the fussy architects out there! Our experience with Corporate Chair Systems has been second to none, with trial chairs arriving promptly and working with us to ensure the chairs were ready on time. I would happily recommend the Hero Chair to any organization that is looking to purchase task chairs – they are by far the best on the market.”
