Ergonomics Explained

Posted by CavilUSA on Feb 1st 2023

Have you ever wondered what 'Ergonomics' actually means and what all the fuss is about? 

Well, its quite simple! It's the science of designing for people and all that's required to fit a workplace to a user’s needs rather than the other way around!

It's simply stated and has been the driving force behind all we do and care about at CavilUSA.

If done correctly, then ergonomics can increase the efficiency and productivity of the user as it reduces discomfort at work.

A sound understanding of ergonomics can prevent most work-place injuries, whether the work place is based in an office or in the home.

The adjustment of the most used tools, such as a desk chair and a desk to suit the user, putting an emphasis on proper posture will reduce the impact of repetitive movements.

The use of computers and rapidly changing technology in the modern workplace has greatly increased the need for ergonomics. Desks, chairs, monitors, keyboards and lighting all need to be assessed when creating a healthy workspace. It doesn't matter if the office is located at the employers site or in the home.

Ergonomics also takes into account the need for movement throughout the day.

Office furniture has traditionally encouraged stiff, fixed postures and little movement. However, a balance between sitting and standing, which can be aided with a height-adjustable chair is a proven way to combat the effects of sedentary workplace behavior.

All of CavilUSA carefully chosen chairs, recliners and desks are inherently ergonomic.

They are designed to be intuitive and adjust effortlessly to the user. Our products are created to promote daily movement and physical activity, while supporting the user’s posture so that the time away from the desk can be spent having fun and not being in pain.
