There are many ergonomic recommendations for the right office equipment: Right angle of legs and arms, upright sitting position, well-lit workplace and some more. Especially now that many in the home office are challenged to redesign the workplace, there is a lot of information on this. We deal with office ergonomics issues on a daily basis and have summarized some relevant points from our wealth of experience for you.

Is there a right working posture?

You can read the official ergonomics recommendations, for example, on the Austrian Public Health Portal. We, too, are fundamentally convinced that it is important to set up your workstation so that it is best suited to you and your job – after all, that is what ergonomics is about by definition. Nevertheless, we also believe that not everything is always black or white, but that the many facets in between also need to be considered.

Whether there is THE optimal working posture at all is therefore open to question. Our bodies are not actually made to sit exclusively, so they are potentially rather unhappy if it is nevertheless demanded of them for hours on end. This unhappiness often manifests itself in the form of tension and headaches or back pain. These occur especially with one-sided loads and when there is no or hardly any movement. At the same time, too much exercise can also be counterproductive. So our body needs a good middle ground and ideally regular variety.

Set up workplace individually

So how can an office workstation be set up so that you feel completely comfortable and you can give your body both space and support? Before buying an office chair or desk, we recommend testing the furniture in the actual working environment. In addition, check your personal requirements in advance. What activity do you perform? Do you need to be able to work long and concentrated hours because you are, for example, a designer, copywriter or programmer? Or are you a lot in online conferences and in contact with other people because you work in project management, for example? Depending on what you are doing, you may also prefer different working postures. Get to know your needs and act on them. Make it possible with flexible office furniture that you can stand up quickly in between or work standing up now and then. Expand your reach and think of furniture that offers as many options as possible.
