What is Ergonomics?

Ergonomics, by definition is the scientific study of human performance at work.

The application of 'ergonomic' principles to work practices assists in preventing musculoskeletal injuries. These injuries might include: muscle fatigue, swelling, stiffness, numbness, tingling, inflammation etc... If not addressed, the following disorders may develop: Repetetive Strain injury, Occupational Overuse Syndrome, Tendonitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Degenerative Disc Disease etc...

It is our belief at Stateline that office chairs should be designed primarily to provide adequate support for the user without placing any unnecessary stress on any part of the body. When selecting a chair, one should firstly consider the particular application for which it will be used. If it is to be used for long periods as in the role of data entry or typical clerical work, the following adjustability features are vitally important. -seat height -back height -back angle -seat pan angle -height of armrests ( if fitted ) and -length of seat.

At Stateline, we only offer chairs that have been designed and manufactured with the latest ergonomic principles in mind. When selecting a chair, take time to learn all that a well designed and built chair can offer you. Experiment with all of the adjustment levers available and continue to try different sitting positions throughout your day.

Remember to ask your Stateline reseller for advice when selecting your chair. The majority have tremendous experience in the industry and will be only too happy to assist you.
