In the workplace, whether you work from home, in a busy office, or even a little bit of both, you will no doubt want to be as comfortable and as productive as you can be. Believe it or not, but something as seemingly basic as choosing the wrong chair could actually seriously hinder your productivity and damage your health in the process.
In the workplace, every single day, people’s health is suffering due to a lack of movement, too much sitting, and sitting in the wrong position. Ergonomic chairs and other similar office chairs, therefore, are proving hugely popular but are they really as beneficial as some people would have you believe, or would a normal chair be just as good?
Below, we’ll be looking at the key differences between a regular office chair and an ergonomic chair with lumbar support in a bid to determine which is better and what some of the key benefits are.
If you’re on the market for a new office chair, here’s a look at the key differences between standard office chair products and ergonomic chair products.
What are ergonomic chairs?
Ergonomic chairs are chairs that are designed to be comfortable and supportive. Usually sat on in the office while working, ergonomic chairs offer lumbar support, support for the back, support for the neck, comfort, adjustability, and much more besides.
Ergonomic is a term that relates to comfort or efficiency within a working environment and so as you might expect, if you do opt for an ergonomic chair with lumbar support, you’re going to be fairly comfortable and supported as you work.
After the events of 2020, and indeed, the first part of 2021, more and more people are slowly transitioning back to working full time at the office, swapping their PJs for formal wear.
Needless to say, as we return to work, there is a feeling of cautiousness due to the high number of people we’ll encounter, but life is slowly returning to normal and with a few tweaks here and there, we can not only return to work safely, we can also return to a more productive workplace as well.

Looking to redecorate your office and perhaps upgrade your desk? Maybe you’re just sick and tired of constantly dealing with backache, neck pain, and migraines caused by poor posture? Whatever your circumstances may be, investing in an L-shaped standing desk could be the solution to all of your worries.
Over the years, more and more people have been purchasing gaming desks as well as office desks, which provide them with the ability to game or work standing up rather than sitting down all of the time. An L-shaped gaming desk could prove to be ideal for somebody dealing with back issues or poor posture, providing you know which desk to go with.
Even though we’re now approaching the final stretch of summer, the warm weather and long days haven’t deserted us just yet, and besides, summer will be right upon us again in 2022 before we know it.
Now, as great as summer can be for most of us, during intense heat waves, life can be pretty unpleasant if you struggle in the heat and can’t keep cool. Working during a heatwave is one of the most unpleasant things you can do in intense heat, especially if you don’t have access to luxuries such as air conditioning.

It’s official, working from home is the new normal. Okay, perhaps that was the case in 2020, but even though offices and businesses are gradually opening back up and returning to “normality” there are still more people than ever before working remotely and working from home.
Regardless of what you do for a living and whether you’re employed or self-employed, chances are you’ll have to work from home at some point, even when we finally find ourselves no longer in the midst of a pandemic. If you do work from home, it’s important to set up a functional workspace at home, which is where it pays to build an aesthetic and functional home office.
If you work at a desk, it doesn’t matter what line of work you happen to be involved in, it’s important to ensure that you’re comfortable and that your back is supported.
Right now, more people are suffering from posture-related health issues than ever before, and that only looks set to continue for the foreseeable future until things change. Standing desks are now commonplace in offices across the globe, and ergonomic chair sales are also up exponentially, which brings us to today’s topic.
