Pain from sitting all day - Podcast Discussion

by ergoCentric

Having to work in task chairs that lack proper support and adjustability causes stress on the back, shoulders, neck, and elbows. Consequently, issues like lower back pain from sitting for extended periods in a non-ergonomic chair can arise. People can even experience leg pain from sitting in an office chair that does not meet their individual needs. As a result, workers often turn to pain relief medications. Offices spaces are often furnished with the same task chair for every individual despite people having unique anthropometrics and needs. Adjustability and support can be limited on these chairs to the point where they do not meet essential task chair requirements.
