Maintain a good posture with
Ergonomic Office Chairs

Ergonomics is the study of people's efficiency in their working environment.

Change your seat, change your life, improve your health.

Sitting for extend periods of time has become the norm for most office bound employees and employers.

Through the ages, technological advances in business mean that many adults are now employed in sedentary occupations and South Africans have one of the highest rates of inactivity in the world.

Sitting in a chair without proper support can cause poor circulation, back discomfort and over all fatigue.

With the new ergonomic chairs, you can improve your posture, overall health and wellbeing. 

What is the correct posture?

Correct posture involves training your body to stand, walk, sit and lie in positions where the least strain is placed on your supporting muscles.

This is also important to remember during weight-bearing activities.

Correct lumbar and pelvic support promotes better posture, better breathing, and less fatigue.


Ergonomic principles state that the chair should first fit the user, then fit the task, and then allow for posture change.
