Did you know that most of us spend a total of 10 years of our entire life in the office? How important is a good sitting posture to prevent all kinds of complaints?
The Finnish company Ergorest Oy has found a solution for this. Since 1978 they have been a pioneer in the field of forearm supports. After 35 years of scientific research, Ergorest has gained a lot of knowledge about the human body, which means that the company can now offer the highest quality forearm supports worldwide.
The Ergorest is a forearm support that is clamped to the desk and which can be moved very smoothly in the horizontal plane – in all directions – with three pivot points. The Ergorest forearm supports are designed with the aim of improving your posture whether you are working from home or from the office. It has been proven that Ergorest improves posture, but also reduces fatigue in the workplace. Ergorest armrests boost productivity and reduce muscle strain injuries. In short, an Ergorest armrest is a proven effective means of preventing a range of complaints and diseases caused by work in industry or in the office.
Ergorest prevents various complaints in the following body parts:
- Wrists: Ergorest forearm supports prevent carpal tunnel syndrome and tenosynovitis.
- Elbows: you will not soon suffer from tennis elbow and other elbow complaints.
- Back: Ergorest forearm supports are proven to prevent low back pain.
- Shoulders and neck: Ergorest relaxes the shoulders and prevents shoulder complaints due to muscle tension. As with the shoulder, Ergorest also reduces tension in the neck, preventing neck complaints.
- Head: Last, but not least, an ergonomic position helps you focus better on your work and keep your mind more active.
To use the Ergorest armrest correctly, a correct working posture is indispensable. With a correct working posture, the position of the head and neck is natural and the angle between the body, elbows and knee is greater than 100°. The back of the chair is slightly tilted and the feet rest on the floor or on a footrest. First of all, you need to set the height of the desk to your correct height. Only then adjust the supports for the forearms so that they offer light support. Be careful not to set the Ergorest supports too high.
