Back problems will affect around 80 percent of Americans at some point, and an ergonomic chair can help, especially if you sit for hours at a desk or screen. The chair is designed to reduce back strain by supporting the natural shape of the spine and it has several other benefits. This type of chair is typically a lot more comfortable than a regular office chair, and it also allows for easier swiveling. Most chairs come with armrests and can be easily and quickly adjusted to suit the height and shape of the person sitting in it. And if you’re an employer, chairs designed for better ergonomics have several benefits. You can expect employees to be more productive, and you should find yourself spending less on sick pay. All of this means lower overall business costs, estimated at $50 billion in America as a whole.
