With the recent outbreak of COVID-19, hundreds of thousands of workers across the UK have begun working from home for the foreseeable future.
81 percent of UK office workers sit between four and nine hours each day at their desks, and this is likely to rise due to the government's advice to keep indoors and social distance ourselves from one another.
With the sudden rise in home office workers, not everyone will have an ergonomic office chair at the ready to keep you comfy and healthy at this unprecedented time.
The dangers of sitting for too long are no secret and it’s imperative we are aware of these dangers and actively look to minimise the risk we set on ourselves by choosing the right office chair for the job and not sitting for too long through the day.
Ergonomic office chairs are designed to be adaptable to the user’s needs in a large number of ways.
The levels of customisation on ergonomic office chairs are associated with higher levels of productivity as opposed to office chairs with very little features.
To be classed as “ergonomic”, office chairs tend to feature the following elements:

While spending so much time seated is not ideal for our health, it is imperative that while we are seated, we are seated on an office chair that is designed for long periods.
Ergonomic office chairs have been specifically designed for such use, and now more than ever with the outbreak of COVID-19, we should invest in a quality office chair.
