What is ergonomics?
Defined as the science of fitting a workplace to the user’s needs, ergonomics aims to increase efficiency and productivity and reduce discomfort.
Think about the angle of your computer monitor or the height of your desk. Think about whether your eyes are strained by the end of the day or if your wrists hurt from typing.
Ergonomics aims to improve workspaces and environments to minimise risk of injury or harm while also considering the need for movement throughout the day.
Office furniture has traditionally encouraged stiff, fixed postures and little movement. However, a balance between sitting and standing, which can be aided with a height-adjustable desk, is a proven way to combat the effects of sedentary workplace behaviour.
So as technologies change, so too does the need to ensure that the tools we access for work, rest and play are designed for our body’s requirements.
