Find Your Perfect Posture with Ergonomic Sit-Stand Chairs

Chances are that you’ve heard the reports that sitting for extended periods of time, as most people find themselves doing at work, is deadly. In fact, some people refer to sitting as the “new smoking” in reference to the serious health conditions that can result from sedentary work life. The good news is that you don’t have to quit your job to protect your health. Ergonomic sit-stand chairs can improve your posture and your overall well-being, by allowing you to work on your feet without stressing your feet, ankles, and back.


Sitting and Your Health

Extended periods of sitting increase your risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and some forms of cancer. Sitting also impacts circulation and may cause swelling in the legs and ankles. Many people slouch when they sit, which also causes back and neck problems. Despite the risks, workers frequently have little choice but to sit in front of their computers all day.


Getting Relief from Ergonomic Sit-Stand Chairs

Sit-stand chairs, when used in conjunction with a standing desk, allow you to get relief from sitting all day without disrupting your work. These chairs offer added support for the lower body, so you aren’t putting pressure on your feet and ankles all day. They also help you maintain proper posture, so you don’t suffer from back pain. Using an ergonomic sit-stand chair can improve your posture, boost your circulation, take pressure off your legs, reduce back pain, and cut down on the risk factors associated with long-term sitting.


Choosing the Right Sit-Stand Chair

Be sure to select a sit-stand chair that is adjustable, so that you can find the most comfortable positioning for you. Ideally, you should also choose a chair that is lightweight, so it is easy to maneuver and to take from desk to desk as needed.
