Here we’ve collected some of the leading benefits of using an ergonomic office chair throughout the workday!

1. Increased Productivity

As mentioned above, arguably one of the foremost advantages of ergonomic office chairs is that they keep you comfortable, increasing your daily productivity. You’ll find the need to take fewer breaks and be able to focus on your work because you won’t experience any aches and pains that often come from sitting behind the desk for long hours. In fact, recently the Washington State Department of Labor& Industries released a study that found a 25% increase in productivity from implementing ergonomic solutions at work.

2. Better Circulation

Researchers have found that sitting in the same position for even a timespan as small as an hour can cause poor blood circulation, in addition to an increased risk of heart disease, depression, and back pain. However, ergonomic chairs offer the optimal sitting position and enable you to easily adjust your position when needed, so your body doesn’t remain in the same place for hours on end. This improves blood flow and circulation.

3. Enhanced Posture

An ergonomic chair is designed to improve your posture and reduce stress on specific points throughout the body. You don’t need to lean forward because your chair isn’t the right height, which causes back problems. All ergonomic chairs are designed to enhance the natural posture of the body.

Barry Einhorn, the owner of Barry's Office Furniture and a seasoned expert with over 43 years of experience serving Canadians, offers valuable insights: "The key to proper sitting in your ergonomic chair is ensuring that your buttocks naturally rest against the back of your chair without having to think about it." Barry's wisdom underscores the significance of ergonomic design and proper posture, which our chairs prioritize to enhance your comfort and well-being.

4. Minimized Pain

Those suffering from chronic aches and pains, like shoulder, back, and neck pain will find that it is greatly reduced when using an ergonomic chair during the workday. Traditional chairs aren’t designed to support the body for long hours and cause a lot of unnecessary stress and pain. However, ergonomic chairs will reduce this pain and increase comfort.

5. Flexibility/Versatility

Ergonomic chairs are designed to be adjusted to every body size, height, and weight. There are even big and tall chairs for those who need them. They come equipped with a variety of adjustable features including seat height, armrest height, tilt, adjustable lumbar and neck support, and more.

6. Hip Support

When sitting down, your hips often bear most of your weight unless you’re using an ergonomic chair since their adjustable seat depth options will provide the proper seat depth to fully support them.

7. Extended Chair Lifespan

Our best ergonomic office chairs aren’t only designed to be versatile but also to last much longer than a traditional office chair. They’re built with today’s most durable materials and features, meaning you won’t need to purchase a new office chair every year because your old one no longer offers the right support, or its armrests become frayed. Additionally, many come with extensive warranties that help ensure your ergonomic chair provides the best return on investment.

8. Fewer Workers Comp Claims

For many businesses, worker compensation claims can be a costly thing that many times, might be a direct result of not providing the proper ergonomic seating in the workplace. Workers can develop chronic back and neck issues that require treatment and could cost your business money in terms of claims and added medical insurance to treat their ailments. However, investing in ergonomic office chairs can drastically reduce the number of annual claims.

9. User-Friendly Design

One of the best things about high-quality, ergonomic chairs is that they’re designed to match every type of body size and style you can think of due to their versatile features. Some of today’s leading ergonomic models focus on specific parts of the body while others are more general and can accommodate multiple body types. Either way, it’s easy to find a chair/s that suits you and your team’s needs.

10. Enhanced Safety Options

Ergonomic chairs are thoroughly vetted and tested before they’re introduced to the market, so you can rest assured that you’ll be investing in the safest and most high-quality office seating option available. Many of them have been lab-tested and come with guarantees, as well as extended or lifetime warranties that demonstrate their commitment to quality and providing the best ROI for you.
