Ergonomic Office Chairs
Ergonomics is the study of people's efficiency in their working environment.
Invest in a better chair.
One of the biggest issues in working from home is that some people use kitchen stools, couches, or formal dining room chairs instead of proper office chairs.
These options can work on a short-term basis, but they aren’t the best choice ergonomically and can ruin your productivity.
You need a proper chair with lumbar support to look after your back and posture during the long hours behind your computer.
Here are three favorite's: the Oxygen Chair, the Metro Chair (designed by a physiotherapist) and the Goliath Heavy Duty Highback Chair.
See them and several other options here, including a handy lumbar support cushion you can use with your existing chair to improve the ergonomics and spinal support.
We like the Fellows I-Spire Series Lumbar Cushion.
If you’d like more versatility, you can even try a standing and sitting desk combination: they allow you to switch between the two to help boost your circulation and look after your posture.
Our pick: the Fellowes Lotus DX Sit-Stand Workstation.

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.
