Workstation Ergonomics - Are You Working Comfortably?

The essentials to a fully ergonomic workstation do much more than simply promote and reduce the risk of pain and musculoskeletal disorders. Good ergonomics increase productivity and protect the offices most important asset, its work force. As a leading source for the most desirable ergonomic seating and accessories, is excited to introduce its newest additions, the most cutting edge innovations in workstation ergonomics from Humanscale.

The centerpiece of the ergonomic workstation is the M2 Monitor Arm, which redefine high-performance monitor arms. Current generation monitor arms utilize bulky, failure-prone gas cylinder to support the weight of the monitor. The M2 instead uses an innovative mechanical spring to achieve exceptional performance and durability in its lightweight, ultra-thin design. With the use of a monitor arm like the M2 the user is allowed access to the many daily tasks that consume a busy workday without twisting, turning, straining or reaching. One of the most important features of the M2 is that the monitor is no longer stationary, but can be adjusted and repositioned quickly and easily, ensuring each user can work in ideal ergonomic conditions.

The Switch Mouse by Humanscale is the revolutionary mousing solution that brings unprecedented ergonomics to computer users. This groundbreaking peripheral device boosts comfort and reduces injury risks through a number of new innovations. Its V-shaped base and four-way scrolling dish complement a built-in palm support for exceptional user comfort. In addition, the Switch Mouse is the only mousing solution that accommodates both left and right-handed users while adjusting to fit the size of virtually any adult hand. Virtually everyone has experienced pain and discomfort after a long day hunched over the keyboard. That’s because poor posture while typing has been know to cause neck pain and upper and lower back pain, as well as carpal tunnel syndrome and other work related musculoskeletal disorders. The fact is a keyboard placed directly on the desktop creates a number of injury risks.

Humanscale’s articulating Platinum 5G Keyboard System helps form the base of the ergonomic workstation. It works in conjunction with a monitor arm and task chair to literally bring the work directly to the user, allowing him to lean back in his chair and maintain healthy ergonomic posture. Unlike keyboard supports of the past that were often large and bulky, cumbersome in design, the Platinum 5G offer the slimmest profile in the industry.

Sit4Less - A Short History

I recently came across a November 2010 article on the website Brain Pickings about an 800 page book titled, The Story of Eames Furniture. No doubt this design duo has had an incredible impact on architecture and furniture, as well as graphic design, fine art and film, and has left a legacy that can be seen and felt ... everywhere it seems. But the article did more than make me think about the Eames history, it made me wonder about the Sit4Less history. We all have one, a history that is, and that history is an important part of who we are and who we are trying to be. It may not fill 800 pages, but every thing started somewhere.
For Sit4Less it all started in 1994, when its virtual doors were opened with the goal of delivering the best ergonomic chairs at the best prices, quickly to offices (of all sizes) across the United States. There was a time when our favorite office chair, for example the Aeron, wasn't available for the small office or home office to purchase direct from the manufacturer. was one of the first retailers to offer these iconic brands to the public, brands like Herman Miller, Steelcase, Knoll, Haworth, and many others. Over the years, Sit4Less has been able to use it relationships with these manufacturers to offer the best selection and support when it comes to office seating.
Sit4Less is the leading source of the most desirable ergonomic seating and accessories and since its inception it has expanded its selection to include names like Inada, Humantouch, and Offices 2 Go. The right chair, at the right price, right now isn't just a slogan, but a promise! It's exciting to see a brand develop and change over the years, but at Sit4Less some things never change - 100% customer satisfaction, free shipping, 110% price guarantee, and 365 day no hassle returns.

Are you a style conscious super villain looking for a dramatic throne/office chair?

If I were a super villian, hanging out in my skull island lair... this would be my office chair of choice. Maybe not the most ergonomic solution out there, but talk about making a statement!

On top of that - this thing functions as a "sensory deprivation chamber" - providing a calming retreat from those stressful diabolical schemes that always seem to go awry.

One blogger's search for office chair relief

Finding the Perfect Office Chair: Aeron vs. Swiss Ball vs. the FBI's Pick...

Written by Tim Ferriss of

(Total read time: 8 minutes)

In this post I'll cover how I identified the best high-end chairs in the world, which I ultimately chose, and the tangible results that followed.
In January of 2005, I found myself on a veranda in Panama after the usual afternoon rain, dreaming of the upcoming year and reflecting on lessons learned since leaving the US. Maria Elena, the matriarch of the Panamanian family that had adopted me, sipped her iced tea and pointed at my bruised feet:
"Tim, let me share some advice I was once given. Buy the most comfortable bed and pair of shoes you can afford. If you're not in one, you'll be in the other."
I followed her advice upon returning to CA and the results were sudden: Plantar Fasciitis disappeared, as did shoulder impingement after switching from coil-spring to foam-layered mattresses.
But what about chairs? On January 4th, 2009, I tweeted out the following:
"Is the Aeron chair worth it? Do you have any fave chairs for extended sitting and writing?"
