The long-term effects of poor sitting posture
Sitting for long periods in a bad chair without proper support can have a number of negative health effects.
For example, it can interfere with blood circulation and put excessive strain on both joints and the spine.
A poor chair can contribute to issues like carpal tunnel syndrome because sitting at the wrong height or distance from your desk puts strain on your wrists.
Ergonomic chairs can help reduce these effects by reducing the strain and pressure on your body. However, it’s still a good idea to move around as much as possible during the day.
Many desk chair manufacturers use the term ergonomic as a marketing tool – although their chairs lack actual certification. If you want a proper ergonomic chair, it’s important to check that the chair is properly certified.
This means that an independent authority has inspected the chair and certified that it meets the required ISO standards for ergonomic compliance.
For a chair to be certified as ergonomic, it has to feature the following:
- a height-adjustable seat with a waterfall edge
- height-adjustable arms
- adjustable lumbar support and tilt tension
- high-quality castors with a five-point base for stability
- smooth swivelling action
- adjustable headrest (optional).
The EasyPro chair was certified by Africa’s leading independent ergonomics consultancy. It is ergonomically compliant according to ISO standards 9421-3 and 9421-5.
The benefits of an ergonomic chair
A certified ergonomic chair is one of the best investments you can make for your long-term health if you have a desk job.
Whether you work in an office or from home, sitting for long periods can put a lot of strain on your body. A supportive chair can help you avoid long-term health issues.
An ergonomic chair is adjustable so it can be customised to suit a user’s specific dimensions.
In comparison to a standard office chair, an ergonomic chair offers:
- good spine and arm support
- adjustable height and tilt, for ideal positioning
- a design that minimises shoulder and neck discomfort
- reduced pressure on the hips
- improved blood circulation.
The EasyPro’s features
The award-winning EasyPro has been designed to have all the necessary ergonomic features without a hefty price tag.
The chair has also been designed with the South African climate in mind.
In combination, the EasyPro’s features make it the best ergonomic chair for 2022 in South Africa.
The EasyPro features an Italian-made self-tensioning synchronous mechanism from Donati that automatically synchronises the recline of the backrest with the seat tilt. This ensures maximum back and spine support when reclining.
The chair has a smooth and easy height adjustment to ensure your feet are always comfortably flat on the ground. The arms are Italian-made by Donati. They’re also height adjustable and padded for extra comfort.
Adjustable lumbar support
The imported European mesh back features adjustable lumbar support. It provides optimal support for the spine and back at any angle.
The mesh back ensures air flow to the back during South Africa’s hot summers. This increases overall comfort and helps avoid the overheating that can be a problem with leather office chairs.
Waterfall edge seat
The high-quality foam seat ensures comfortable sitting for long periods and the waterfall edge minimises pressure on the back of the thighs.
The five-point base is stable and features high-quality castors for a smooth rolling action. The base has a smooth swivelling action so you can get in and out of your chair easily and comfortably.
The seat fabric of the EasyPro is customisable. You can match the colour and print to your corporate identity or office decor. You can choose between a black moulded or polished aluminium base and between fixed, 1D height-adjustable or 4D height-adjustable armrests.
The EasyPro comes with a five-year warranty. It is manufactured with the highest quality, high-performance parts and components. K-Mark provides expert after-sales support, servicing and repairs.
