Active chairs for working at standing seat workplaces
For an effective work performance and for the well-being at the workplace, according to today's understanding apart from the health aware attitude of the individual, as well as stable social psychological framework conditions, the ergonomic design of the workplace is ideal. Regardless of whether at the office or in the industrial area. For the ergonomic design the change between sitting, standing and movement is regarded as being the goal.
The significance of ergonomic standing seat chairs
Furniture is available that makes "moving sitting“ possible: Due to their special construction supportive active chairs automatically keep the back and the abdominal muscles active - and thereby fit. Although movement has already come to the workplace design by means of sitting corners or standing/sitting combinations, there are pure standing workplaces at which work must be continuously undertaken in the standing position - e.g. counters, laboratory, reception, height adjustable writing tables. So that such working conditions can be endured over the long term without health damage, so-called standing seat chairs are indispensable.
Standing seat chairs are higher than normal chairs, have a relatively small sitting surface that is adjustable in the inclination and can be easily moved at the workplace. They allow a body posture between sitting and standing. With individuals that use the standing seat chairs, up to 60% of the bodyweight is no longer on the legs and feet, but on the standing seat chairs. This relieves the cardiovascular system, joints, tendons and ligaments and allows the dynamic straightening of the spinal column.
Standing seat chairs are not only intended for standing workplaces
The application of standing seat chairs is however not only recommendable for pure standing workplaces, but also for standing seat workplaces at the office. Here the standing seat chair can make an important contribution towards the change between sitting and standing. The standing seat chair should be sufficiently stable, comfortable and ergonomically designed.
The inclination of the central column and the construction of the sitting surface are decisive
Through a slightly forward inclined central column one automatically sits "straight“. The goal hereby is to support the physiological curvature of the spinal column also with a high sitting position, and at the same time increase the stability. The sitting surface should be height adjustable so that your feet can be placed on the floor with full contact, in addition this increases the movement comfort. Furthermore, it should not be too low and be inclined towards you.
Make sure that the front part of the sitting surface can be individually and variably adjusted to the pressure of the thighs, which leads to a pronounced pressure reduction.
The importance of ergonomic standing seat chairs for commercial workplaces
With modern standing seat chairs the three leg principle with stop rollers ensures that they are not only always stable and secure on uneven floors, but at the same time also offer sufficient leg freedom. If in addition the sitting height can be easily adjusted through a foot adjuster, one has the hands free (important function in the laboratory) and the standing seat chair is also quickly accepted by several users.
