Fully Adjustment Ergonomic Workstation
The concept for an anterior support ergonomic workstation came from my experience as a physical therapist working with patients who had neck or back pain exacerbated by sitting at their occupational workstations. Some had been provided a full “ergonomic assessment” financed by their employers. The ergonomic recommendations were variations on the same theme: a posterior support system and chair design with a 90 degree hip angle. But sitting in this position seemed to predispose some of my patients to slouching – rounding the back and jutting the head forward.
An anterior chest support instead of a back support decreased fatigue in my patients with both sitting and standing postures during vertical alignment. The “light touch chest support” in this ergonomic workstation provides a gentle relief for the back when sitting or standing long periods of time at the computer. My patients with neck pain were a tougher group! Nothing in the ergonomic workstation assessment recommendations seemed to help them. I thought about the massage chair and how the face cradle supports the head.…and the design for a “light touch head support” was born. It doesn’t take much support to relieve neck strain, so a gentle forehead rest was the perfect solution! The head support allows the head and neck to relax while maintaining an upright position at the workstation…. Learn More
