Here’s a shocker: most of us sit more than we sleep. “Sitting is the new smoking” is the mantra of researches into ergonomics and our long-term health. All modern offices share many similarities. One such similarity is a sedentary culture and studies show all that sitting is taking a major toll on employee health.
The Essential Workstation
Humanscale’s intuitive work tools are designed to be used together to form The Essential Workstation. Combining ergonomic expertise with innovative design, Humanscale’s work tools adjust to the user, making work more comfortable and complementing any work style.
Seating – The Freedom Chair reclines with constant support and has a pivoting backrest that automatically adjusts to the needs of the spine, the Freedom Chair is exceptionally comfortable and promotes movement throughout the day.
The Saddle Seat is part of Humanscale’s award-winning Freedom seating line. The Saddle and Pony task stools are the most comfortable, versatile and ergonomic stools ever made. The original Saddle and the compact Pony Saddle make sitting comfortable and workplace movement simple while complementing any workspace or home office.
The Humanscale QuickStand Height Adjustable Workstation is for those with established work surfaces. QuickStand is a sit/stand solution that can be clamped like a monitor arm to any fixed-height work surface, allowing the user to be active and move effortlessly between seated and standing postures throughout the day.
As well as promoting space saving and a clutter-free workspace, Humanscale's monitor arms support a healthier, more ergonomic working posture. Encouraging the user to align the monitor at the correct height for them, monitor arms prevent eye and neck strain, as well as making adjustments simple for a more open, collaborative space.
Humanscale’s intuitive task lights help to reduce eyestrain, improve computer-based reading comfort and reduce energy use and costs. All of their task lights feature a sustainable design and use advanced LED technology, so the user can work in comfort and companies can shrink their carbon footprint.
Making movement at the workstation simple, Humanscale's range of dynamic footrests are designed to maximize comfort while promoting an active workspace. Footrests raise the feet to relieve pressure on the lower back and encourage gentle rocking, which uses the lower leg muscles to increase circulation and boost energy.
Every workspace needs the perfect accessories. Humanscale designs and engineers a range of innovative ergonomic accessories to complete the essential workstation. Our ergonomic accessories include the revolutionary Switch Mouse, which boosts comfort and reduces injury risk thanks to its advanced V-shaped base and four-way scrolling dish.
Why Invest in Ergonomics?
The implementation of a sound ergonomics program can represent a significant investment. When a company takes a proactive approach to employee safety and well-being, employees take notice of this active stance on their wellness. They report higher levels of job satisfaction and show higher commitment levels. Toward this end, an effective ergonomics program can offer a positive return on investment that is often many times the cost of executing the program.
