Office Horror Stories
Gather ‘round the water cooler. We’ve got real-life office horror stories to share, tales of unhealthy habits, bad posture, and misguided budget allocations. But don’t fear because Ergo Impact also provides solutions that create happy endings to these tales of woe.
Dangerously Sedentary Employees
Sitting for extended periods of time is bad for people. Even those who exercise in their free time, do potential harm to their body when they sit all day at work. In fact, according to a recent article in the LA Times* sitting for excessively long periods of time is a risk factor for early death.
Dr. James Levine, director of the Mayo Clinic-Arizona State University Obesity Solutions Initiative and leading expert on the dangers of sedentary lifestyles has said,
“Sitting is more dangerous than smoking, kills more people than HIV and is more treacherous than parachuting. We are sitting ourselves to death.”
Ergo Impact’s revolutionary LeanRite™ is designed to keep people moving throughout the day. It’s not your typical office chair. Sure, it provides a well-designed seat that supports neutral posture as any good office chair should, but it also allows users to stand on an anti-fatigue mat while receiving lumbar support, or relax in a comfortable perch position which emphasizes great posture.
As if the horrors of sitting all day aren’t bad enough, many people tend to slouch or seemingly melt into their chairs as the day goes on. Or they’re hunched over their laptops, tablets, and phones. Poor posture and bad ergonomic set-ups lead to damaged back muscles, bulging discs, carpal tunnel syndrome and other painful and costly musculoskeletal injuries.
The LeanRite was designed with input from the brightest minds in ergonomics, orthopedic medicine, and physical therapy in order create a product that supports the body in the way that our bodies can relax, but also keep up with core strengthening movement throughout the workday.
Unexpectedly Low ROI
A growing number of top companies are incorporating standing desks into their offices. They purchase standing desks to encourage employee wellness knowing that healthy employees are happy employees. They’re also aware that healthy employees boost the company’s bottom line because those factors lead to fewer sick days and lower medical expenses. But there’s a common lament, “Most of my employees still sit all day!”
Adjustable height desks are a smart investment. There’s no need for buyer’s remorse. There is, however, a need for the proper seat to go with those desks. That’s where the LeanRite shines once again.
The LeanRite is designed to move with your employees and their desks throughout the day. It’s no longer a matter of sitting or standing. It provides employees with a choice of several positions to keep them moving and focused throughout the day.
The LeanRite increases the ROI from an investment in height-adjustable desks.
