Designing the Perfect Office
In a recent study published by the Journal of American Medical Association that surveyed roughly 29,000 computer users and found that 52.7% were working with at least one form of daily musculoskeletal discomfort which lead to a loss of productivity. Increasing productivity in the office is what every organization strives to achieve. Organizations have noticed that thereâ€™s a link between worker discomfort, lost productive time and cost. Addressing these discomfort levels with the right ergonomic furniture is an important business strategy.
Millions of Americans are suffering from lower back pain and having ergonomic furniture in the office can help fight this problem. For instance, â€˜hands in lap postureâ€™ is the ideal position for using a keyboard and mouse. An ergonomic office chair is also important so that youâ€™re able to adjust the chair to your liking. Monitor positioning is another important factor and should be adjusted so that the top of your monitor is no higher than eye level.
