What is ergonomic furniture?

- Support the spine’s normal S posture rather than pulling it into a C shape
- Be easily adaptable to meet a wide variety of people
- Prioritize usability as much as aesthetics or comfort
It must not:
- Limit the natural movement and flow of the human body
- Strain your muscles, bones and/or joints

Ergonomic furniture promotes inclusion and diversity by embracing different body types and needs.
An ergonomic furniture, such as an ergonomic chair or ergonomic desk, will distribute the body weight of the user uniformly throughout so that blood circulation is not restricted and hence no blood clots are formed. It will adapt to the body shape of the user to offer enhanced support as well as comfort.
Ergonomic design, by keeping the needs of various users in mind, respects and celebrates diversity.
Benefits of ergonomic chair and ergonomic desk
Here are 5 ways in which ergonomic furniture can benefit you:
- It improves your posture
Traditional chairs that aren’t ergonomic in their design, are one of the reasons why employees who work 7 to 8 hours have incorrect posture.
An ergonomic chair is an answer to this epidemic!
Its features include:
- A headrest for neck support
- A backrest for spinal support
- Synchro-tilt mechanism in order to let you stretch and get comfortable
You can have a look at our ergonomic chair range and get one for yourself immediately!
2. It’s more convenient for you
An ergonomic desk is more user-friendly, and so they are way more comfortable than traditional ones.
Our study tables allow you to store all your study and work tools efficiently to make work pleasurable for you. For instance,
- Our Athena study table has the largest workspace area and can accomodate devices such as a desktop computer and a printer, among others.
- The Sage study table offers both storage and display options to the user. It also comes with a shelf where you can place your laptop bag.
- The Apollo study table by Wakefit is raised on strong Sheesham wood legs that provide optimal balance.
3. It lowers your risk of neck problems
If you sit for an extended period of time without a neck support, you can develop discomfort in your neck and shoulder area. This may also result in complications such as cervical spondylosis.
Ergonomic chair by Wakefit has a headrest that protects your head and neck even when you’re stretching out. This is particularly useful for people who spend a significant time at work answering phone calls.
4. It looks after your back
Ergonomic chairs have a backrest that supports the natural curve of the spine, which decreases the risk of back pain.
Ergonomic seats are large enough to accommodate the entire back. Wakefit’s ergonomic chair even has a reclining feature that allows you to sit at an angle greater than 90 degrees, thus enhancing comfort.

5. It relieves pressure on your hips and keeps them happy
The surface of a typical chair is hard. Because of this, there is an additional pressure on your hips.
An ergonomic chair has a decent seat depth that supports your hips and buttocks (measured 2 to 4 inches from the back of your knees).
