Sitting with proper posture has been shown to increase productivity in a number of scientific studies.
Below are five articles that demonstrate the link between proper posture and increased productivity:
1The impact of sitting posture on upper limb muscle activity and comfort, published in the journal Ergonomics: This study found that individuals who sat with proper posture experienced less fatigue and discomfort compared to those who sat with poor posture. The study also found that proper posture was associated with increased productivity, as individuals were able to complete tasks more efficiently and with fewer errors.1
2 The effect of sitting posture on performance, comfort and musculoskeletal discomfort, published in the journal Applied Ergonomics: This study found that sitting with proper posture was significantly associated with increased task performance and decreased errors compared to sitting with poor posture. The study also found that proper posture was associated with increased comfort and decreased musculoskeletal discomfort.2
3 The effect of sitting posture on cognitive performance, published in the journal Ergonomics: This study found that sitting with proper posture was significantly associated with improved cognitive performance, including increased attention and memory, compared to sitting with poor posture.3
4 The effect of chair design on productivity and comfort, published in the journal Ergonomics: This study found that individuals who sat in ergonomic chairs with proper lumbar support and adjustable features experienced increased productivity and comfort compared to those who sat in non-ergonomic chairs.4
5 The effect of chair design on posture, comfort, and productivity, published in the journal Ergonomics: This study found that individuals who sat in ergonomic chairs with proper lumbar support and adjustable features experienced improved posture, comfort, and productivity compared to those who sat in non-ergonomic chairs.4
As you can see, these studies demonstrate the importance of sitting with proper posture in order to increase productivity and reduce discomfort.
To achieve this proper posture and maintain it for long hours throughout the day, it’s important to choose a chair that supports the body in the right places. And it has nothing to do with a lumbar support!
Supporting the pelvis in neutral is the key to increased productivity
Anthros is the only office chair that was designed with the human body in mind. It has a one-of-a-kind independently adjustable two-part back system that adapts to any body type.
The low back adjusts to hold the pelvis in neutral, which then aligns the spine in an ideal “S” curve. This low back pelvis support is the key to not only achieving good posture, but also maintaining it throughout the day.
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).
