You know what they say, "You are what you sit on!" And if your employees are sitting on cheap office chairs, let's just say it's not doing their posture any favors!
A proper office chair such as Anthros, that supports the body in the right places can help save an employer money in a few ways, including reduced missed workdays, increased productivity, reduced workers' compensation claims, and reduced insurance claims.
1 One of the main benefits of an office chair that adapts to you to improve posture and comfort, is that it can help reduce missed workdays due to musculoskeletal disorders.
Poor posture and discomfort can lead to a variety of musculoskeletal disorders, such as lower back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain, which can cause individuals to miss work due to discomfort and disability.
A study published in the journal Occupational Medicine found that poor posture was significantly associated with an increased risk of missed workdays due to musculoskeletal disorders.
The study included data from over 32,000 employees and found that individuals with poor posture were more likely to miss work due to musculoskeletal disorders compared to those with good posture1.
An office that has an adjustable two-part back support is the ideal way to support good posture and reduce the risk of musculoskeletal disorders, leading to fewer missed workdays.
2 A proper ergonomic office chair can also help increase productivity by reducing fatigue and discomfort.
When individuals are uncomfortable or in pain, they may have difficulty concentrating and completing tasks efficiently.
A study published in the journal Applied Ergonomics found that poor posture was significantly associated with a decrease in task performance and an increase in errors.2
A proper ergonomic office chair can help support good posture and reduce discomfort, leading to increased productivity and efficiency.
The Anthros office chair reduces disc pressure and may help reduce workers' compensation claims and insurance claims.
Back injuries and musculoskeletal disorders are common reasons for workers' compensation claims and insurance claims, and a chair that helps to reduce low back pain can help reduce the risk of these types of injuries and disorders. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, back injuries accounted for 17% of all workers' compensation claims in 20193, making it the second most common type of injury after sprains and strains.
A study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine estimated that the average cost per claim for back injuries was $13,595 in 20163. By providing a proper ergonomic office chair, employers can help reduce the risk of back injuries and other musculoskeletal disorders, leading to fewer workers' compensation claims and insurance claims.
If you are looking to improve posture while sitting, look no further than Anthros.
Anthros is the only chair in the world that is guaranteed to improve posture or your money back. The science-backed, patented design, is registered with the FDA as a posture-improving chair and is proven to have the lowest pressure (most comfortable) cushion on the planet (verified by university testing).
Take the next step to reducing pain, increasing comfort, and maximizing performance!
