Ergonomic office furniture aims to fit the environment of the office to the employee and not vice versa which has happened all too frequently in the past. Technological advancements no longer mean that desks need to be static, or that height adjustable desks need to be lifted and lowered with heavy manual labour.

But what is ergonomic office furniture and how does it affect my business?

Poor ergonomics can affect all aspects of business including health, safety, production, quality, and human relations. Ergonomic office furniture encompasses many components, but the main 2 are:
– Electric height adjustable desks
– Ergonomic office chairs

What is ergonomic office furniture – Electric height adjustable desks

Electric height adjustable desks allow the user at the touch of a button to quickly and efficiently adjust the height of their desk. Human beings were not meant to be sat down for long periods of time. We were designed to be on the move, so modern office environments which encourage long periods of sitting have led to poor posture and weak lower backs. However, the opposite is also true, long periods of standing also lead to lower back pain and sore feet. Studies have shown that a sit – stand approach alleviates the load on the lower back, increases employee productivity and reduces costs associated with OHS and work related injuries. Simply put, when people feel god, they can work as efficiently and productively as possible.

Using an electric height adjustable desk means that an employee can achieve this sit-stand approach quickly and is the forefront of ergonomic office furniture. Ergonomic office furniture in the form of electric height adjustable desks also allows companies to create hot desking areas, or one desk can be safely used by multiple employees who can adjust it to a comfortable sitting position.

What is ergonomic office furniture – Ergonomic office chairs

Ergonomic office chairs help provide support for the lower back. Unfortunately long hours sitting in the same position is often unavoidable. Providing ergonomic office furniture in the form of ergonomic office chairs will also help companies save money by avoiding costly worker related injuries and compensation.

Ergomotion has been dealing with the question of what is ergonomic office furniture for decades and has a large range of high quality, Australian made and designed ergonomic office furniture to suit any project requirement.

Application of ergonomic office furniture principles can result in:

– Increased productivity – Decreased lost time at work
– Increased quality
– Decreased absenteeism
– Improved employee retention, thus reducing training costs
– Improved health and safety
– Increased job satisfaction and morale
– Decreased injuries and workers compensation claims

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Great service from Guy and the team at Ergomotion! Helped with all my queries and was able to source a standing desk part for me when many others weren't able! Highly recommend!

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
