Simply put, ergonomics is about creating a workplace in accordance with its users’ needs. Ergonomics focuses on designing everyday office tools to fit the handler’s form, thereby increasing efficiency and decreasing discomfort. This scientific approach to workplace design considers angles, placement, support, and most importantly, examines how each relates to our individual human forms.
Consider the height of your office chair in relation to the computer monitor. Ergonomic placement of each can dramatically improve posture, mobility, and comfort while reducing strain on muscles, joints, and eyes. Through understanding the human body and its movement, ergonomics seeks to improve all aspects of the office environment with conscious and thoughtful design.
The ergonomic office chair has been around for decades and continues to be a key piece in any modern commercial office space. Each year, we see new inventions in ergonomic design that seek to improve users’ experience by fostering their physical health. We spend about eight hours a day in the office and a significant amount of time in our desk chairs. The modern ergonomic office chair may now include tilters, adjustable lumbar support, memory foam seats, and moveable arm rests. The science behind each feature is based on the variety of human body types, abilities, and needs.
Ergonomics also seeks to encourage movement throughout the day. Traditional office furniture has forced users to remain rigid and sedentary; however, the sit-to-stand desk allows the operator to work in healthy seated and standing positions throughout the day. Providing comfortable mats with standing desks will reduce lower back pain and joint stress. Ergonomic keyboards, phones, and headsets encourage natural movement when using each item. Users won’t strain to hold a phone between their neck and shoulder, nor will they hold wrists and hands in awkward positions when typing or dialing.
Ergonomics is rapidly applied in the furniture industry, especially in the office furniture industry. The application of ergonomics in the design of office furniture is to put special emphasis on the physiological and health response of office furniture to the human body. Provide a scientific way to solve the health problems of staff. Today, Hookay Office Furniture will talk to you about ergonomics.
How important is ergonomics to office furniture design?
Human nature adjustment
The ergonomic chairs in the office we often buy are to adjust the head, chair back, lumbar support, and the armrest to a comfortable angle and height according to their own sitting posture. arc-shaped back-to-back design, bow frame strength and elasticity, headrest arc streamline processing, every detail strives for humanization. The ergonomic display arm can rotate 360 degrees, and the display can rotate and adjust completely according to the direction and distance that the user wants. The arm can also stretch to a great extent and save desk space to a greater extent.
It is suitable for the adjustment of various body shapes. The variety of office furniture adjustments determines that users no longer need to adapt to tables and chairs, but tables and chairs adapt to the human body itself, no matter what kind of body shape, ergonomic tables and chairs can be adjusted according to personal conditions. Ergonomics is shown in all aspects of office furniture, and its design principles can be summarized in three words-humanization.
Everyone has to stay in the office for at least 8 hours a day. Sitting for a long time will inevitably cause backache, lumbar muscle strain, lumbar disc herniation, hyperosteogeny and other problems. Ergonomic desks and chairs make the use of desks and chairs adapt to the natural form of the human body as far as possible so that people who use desks and chairs do not need any active adaptation physically and mentally at work, so as to minimize fatigue caused by the use of tables and chairs.
According to a large number of statistics, eleven desks and chairs of different heights should be arranged for children from primary school to senior high school, which is the embodiment of ergonomics on desks and chairs. Ergonomics releases the human body in nature, and everyone's natural working state can be released even in a serious workplace.
