Biofit Ergonomic Seating
Ergonomics is the science of designing and arranging things to help ensure the safe and efficient interaction between the things and the people who use them. At BioFit Engineered Products, this means designing seating that helps protect users from muscular-skeletal disorders and repetitive motion injuries while aiding their performance in the accomplishment of particular tasks. The first things we look at when designing seating for any specific purpose is the layout of the workspace where the chair will be used, the tasks to be performed by the user and how the chair will be expected to function in that context. Of the five key risk factors in ergonomic injuries, it’s important to remember that the chair offers control over posture only. Excessive repetitive movements, use of manual force, exposure to extremes in temperature and contact with vibration all have unique consequences. Yet, an ergonomically correct chair can give users an advantage by putting them in healthier working positions. While there is no single correct posture for continual sitting, changing posture frequently in a fully adjustable ergonomic chair remains the most important factor in alleviating sitting problems. Additionally, ergonomic seating can also help maintain attentiveness in staff, increasing performance. That’s why it’s important to know the difference between true “ergonomic” seating and products merely labeled as such. Ergonomic seating produced by BioFit includes proven components and options such as: a five-legged pedestal base, fully adjustable and cushioned armrests, a seat that allows for even weight distribution, lumbar support and easy-to-use height adjustment.
