Celebrating Your New Desk Job with an Ergonomic Chair - 3 Factors to Keep in Mind
This entry was posted on December 2, 2011.
You’ve successfully landed that coveted desk job, good for you! You’re probably thinking about all the things your new position is going to bring to the table, such as the following:
- Proof you have what it takes to succeed professionally
- Enough money to afford that car you’ve been eyeing
- The ability to showcase your talents and make a name for yourself
- Respect from your family and friends
However, have you thought about how this new desk job is going to affect your body? Here are three factors to keep in mind. Sure, you might be young now and impervious to chronic pain, but eventually, even you will feel the negative effects of poor ergonomics at the workplace. Women especially have to pay closer attention to the way they work. Desk chairs are not all equal, and in this case, having just any desk chair can pose a significant health issue for women.
1. Your Petite Frame
Some women are more petite than others, and the typical desk chair does not provide the proper ergonomic support that petite women need. If you’re a smaller framed woman, you’re going to want to take the time to look at office chairs for petite people. These chairs are specifically designed for users 5'2" and under. With an overall smaller frame and structure, they are meant to specifically meet the size and ergonomic requirements of a shorter frame. Some even come with speciality features such as a smaller seat size or even shorter cylinders to accommodate users with shorter legs.
2. Your Unique Needs/Wants
Additionally, women’s computer chairs are offered in a wide assortment of styles and colors. Whatever your desire is, there is now a chair that not only meets your taste but fits your ergonomic needs as well. From bright pink to navy blue vinyl, the color and upholstery options are endless.
3. Your Budget
Best of all, ergonomic chairs for women don’t have to break the bank. After all, you just got the job; you don’t want to spend your entire paycheck on a chair. Task chairs for women are financially sound options, and they don’t fall short on ergonomics.
Congratulations on the new job!
