ORTHOPAEDIC WONDERS OF ERGONOMICS
Say goodbye to orthopaedic problems, the scientific way.
Do you know lower back pain is the world's most common work-related disability which affects people from all walks of life? One root cause of this is sitting on inconvenient chairs for prolonged hours. The budding culture of desk jobs has further deteriorated lifestyle of masses and has decreased the physical activities in daily life. So, here it becomes imperative for the people to use right kind of furniture, which suits their body structure and doesn't cause any kind of discomfort leading to pain in back, shoulders, arms, etc.
However, you would be surprised to know that a branch of science called as Ergonomics specifically designs/ arranges workplaces, products and systems so that they fit the people who use them. Most people relate ergonomics with the design of car controls and instruments – and it is! But it is so much more. Ergonomics applies to the design of anything that involves people – workspaces, sports and leisure, health and safety. In fact, Ergonomics is a branch of science that aims to learn about human abilities and limitations, and then apply the learning to improve people's interaction with products, systems and environments. Consequently, it improves workspaces, environments to minimise risk of any kind of harm or injury.
With the every- growing technologies, it must be ensured that the kind of tools, products, furniture we use on daily basis that too for prolonged hours should be designed as per our body's requirements. Especially, furniture. As an aptly designed furniture is imperative for a healthy orthopedic life.
Ergonomics importance for healthy
orthopaedic conditions It is needless to say that ergonomics contribution in the orthopaedics is commendable! Thousands of people keeping themselves at bay from sleepless nights and tremendous pains by choosing ergonomics in their daily life. Here we enlist why it is vital for you and your health.
❋ Discomfort causes stress and pain and further leads to sleepless nights and irritated behaviour. But bid farewell to all of these as ergonomics is the science in which furniture is designed to provide long term stress-free comfort for normally healthy people.
❋ It is scientifically proven that chairs and furniture designed with ergonomics techniques prevent you from causing any kind of pains in body in fact, and rather lessen the effects of pre- existing orthopaedic conditions.
❋ Most ergonomic/ orthopaedic chairs are selected through a due diligence process and meet relevant criteria set by chiropractors.
❋ Ergonomics creates safe, comfortable and productive workspaces by bringing human abilities and limitations into the design of a workspace, including the individual’s body size, strength, skill, speed, sensory abilities (vision, hearing), and even attitudes. And as they say, personalised is always the best!
❋ Increased needs of ageing people also gets resolved with these comfortable chairs and thus deprive them from feeling any kind of pain despite being seated for prolonged hours.
How does Ergonomics works?
Ergonomics is relatively a new science branch of science and takes contributions from much older and established scientific disciplines like, like psychology, engineering, biomechanics, physiology, industrial deisng. In its pure essence, it is the study of designing equipment, devices and processes that fit the human body and its cognitive abilities. The two terms "human factors" and "ergonomics" are essentially synonymous.
Your posture matters too
Ergonomics is indeed a study of how the human body can get maximum comfort, safety and productivity which keeps you away from orthopaedic problems. But this only solves one part of the equation. Most of the times, we often blame poorly designed work stations, furniture, cars for aches and pains. What we often miss out is, proper usage of our own body. Even the best ergonomically designed chair won't do wonders if the person using it doesn't use his or her body properly and sits in proper posture.
