Why does it take time to get used to ergonomic office chairs? We always tell our customers that it can take time to get used to sitting on a new ergonomic office chair. This time will vary from person to person but can take up to several weeks. So why do people need this adjustment period?
The reason for this is actually quite simple. The body is very good at adapting to its environment. In the case of sitting, the body gets used to the position that it most commonly adopts, regardless of whether this leads to good or bad posture. Changing the chair will put the body into a new position that it is not used to. As a result, some muscles may be more stretched than they would be normally, whilst other muscles may have to work harder to maintain the new position. It is worth noting that the greater the change the more you will notice the transition. For example, if you normally sit on ergonomic office chairs with a back rest and move to a saddle chair without a back rest, you may initially get some aching in the lower back as the muscles get used to having to work more during the day.
When customers buy chairs from Fluto, we can offer you some excellent strategies to help make your chair transition as quick and easy as possible. Please visit our home page to see our range of ergonomic office chairs.
