The classic office chair: Not the ideal solution for prolonged sitting in everyday life

 

An ergonomic office chair is designed to promote a correct sitting position to prevent back pain and other discomforts. This includes adjustable seat height and armrests that support a comfortable arm position. Lumbar support is also important to relieve the lower back. Is all of this true?

 

1. The Facts: Is the office chair really the ideal chair for the office?

Are ergonomic office chairs actually the right choice when it comes to finding the perfect partner for your sitting activities?

It must be mentioned that the norms describing the office chair, especially DIN EN 1335, are over 20 years old. Even with ongoing revisions, the requirements for the office chair have not changed significantly. This is also evident in the statistics of sick leave due to back and disc problems. In 2010, 6.5 million people in Germany alone were in medical treatment for this reason. In 2019, almost 60% (!) of Germans suffered from back pain at least once a month.

Existing chairs and office furniture are not able to reduce back pain in the office. That's why numerous ergonomists and researchers, such as those from Bergardi, are specifically addressing this issue. What components does a health-promoting chair need, and how do I use it correctly to counteract back pain and disc problems?

 

Let's take a closer look at the most important aspects of the "best" office chair, in terms of scientific evidence:

"An ergonomic office chair is designed to promote a correct sitting position to prevent back pain and other discomforts. This includes adjustable seat height and armrests that support a comfortable arm position. Lumbar support is also important to relieve the lower back."

 

Here's what science says:

 

  • Most ergonomic office chairs have a backrest that extends up to the shoulders or even the head. The sitter tends to lean back and adopt a comfortable position with these models. However, this is a significant drawback. What sounds pleasant at first is very damaging to our muscles in the long run. All muscles that are not used for a long time degrade!

 

  • Armrests can be useful but are not mandatory. Some people use armrests to stand up or sit down. In this case, they can actually be supportive for the back. However, placing the arms permanently on the armrest can be strenuous for the neck, as it often leads to a stiff body posture.

 

  • Lumbar support is essential to relieve the back and always maintain a stable position. Without support, the body could be overstrained, leading to back or disc problems.

 

2. The best office chair: An active-dynamic chair

Are you already familiar with active-dynamic chairs? Perhaps you're thinking of chairs that move you around wildly in the office or a chair that functions like an exercise ball? Then you haven't yet seen the chairs from Bergardi. Because Bergardi has developed the first active-dynamic chairs that combine a stable posture with pleasant movements for the first time. And that's good for the back and discs!

Here is where you can find the health-promoting chairs from Bergardi.

The Benefits of Bergardi Active Chairs

 

3. What are active-dynamic chairs?

These special chairs are designed to support constant, gentle movement, activating muscles and improving posture. Unlike conventional office chairs, where you remain in a static position, active-dynamic chairs promote a natural posture and prevent muscle stiffness.

The benefits of active-dynamic chairs are numerous.

On the one hand, they help reduce back pain and improve posture through constant movement. On the other hand, they promote blood circulation and can thereby contribute to increased concentration and performance. They also offer more freedom of movement and, consequently, more comfort for the lumbar area.

So, if you're looking for an alternative to the conventional office chair, you should definitely consider Bergardi's active-dynamic chairs. They promote better posture, reduce back pain, and improve blood circulation.
