For all working professionals across globe workplace is the home away
from home. They spent several hours a day glued to their chairs working.
During a normal course of day at work an employee has to deal with
several issues both physical and cognitive. These issues build a lot of
stress upon an individual. In such a fatigued and stressed out situation
it becomes tough for an employee to deliver his or her best at work. With
a number of indispensable issues an employee may be dragged into several
directions at the same time. While cognitive issues can not be totally
eliminated, physical environment if paid attention can drastically
contribute to reduction of fatigue and stress at the work place. The
equipments we work with, the desks we make use of and the postures we
take through the course of the day all affect the human body. Research
has proved that continuous high stress levels may lead to several
problems. Backache, pain in hands, wrists etc are just a few to name.

Everyone has to sit for at least a few hours at his or her chair while
working. During this span his or her body might take different postures.
He or she might sit stiff for a few minutes then take a relaxed posture
for next few minutes and might fold ones legs later. Postures change
according to the cognitive state of a human being. When alert and
attentive one might sit straight and upright for sometime but sitting in
the same position for long might lead to ache in back and spinal cord. On
the other hand if one continues to sit in a relaxed position for several
hours he or she may become lethargic. Too much fatigue and monotony at
work place may make one fold legs and sit for several hours thereby
making the work environment to casual to work.

A chair plays a pivotal role at workplace. Ergonomic experts have devised
“Ergonomic Office Chairs” especially for the work place. These are highly
flexible and adjustable chairs that could fit a variety of postures and
human body structures. These ergonomic chairs for workplace are available
in many designs but they all are designed keeping comfort at first place.
Since, these chairs are somewhat mechanical those who buy the same must
first train their employees about how to use the same. Ergonomic chairs
have an adjustable height. Most of them have a liver that could be used
for adjustment chairs height. They also have a long and flexible back
that provides support to the spinal cord while working. These chairs also
have adjustable side arm rests that can be set according to ones comfort
for resting ones arms while free. Ergonomic chairs are built keeping in
mind the comfort that is required by human body while working for long
hours. They tend to reduce workplace fatigue and stress thereby
increasing the performance levels and efficiency of employees. Human

ergonomic office chairs as it would help them reduce the unnecessary
expense incurred due to workplace illness.
