Let Foam Help Make You Comfortable at Work
Millions of people spend their time at a desk all day, earning their paychecks. This daily repetitiveness can take a toll both mentally and physically. Sitting in the same position and doing the same thing every day can stress and strain your body, causing problems that range from back and neck pain to carpal tunnel syndrome. Fortunately, when paired with slight changes to your work routine, office comfort products can help make nine to five much more tolerable.
The first place somebody should start their office assessment is their seating, as that’s where the majority of every day is spent. A chair lacking in proper cushioning can cause pressure points, aches, and circulation issues that can become discomfort, tingling, or even numbness. To cushion seats, firm foam is an easy way to soften office chairs while maintaining important support. There are many foam types used in the manufacturing of office furniture cushions, from gel to memory foam or even natural latex foam. For people who sit in an under-supportive chair that is lacking in support, back, neck, or shoulder discomfort is often a result of their body being misaligned all day. A wedge foam cushion is excellent for helping correct these situations, and there are many styles made to address different issues. Contoured back pillows are able to support the lumbar area while orthopedic wedges soften the seat with extra padding all while enforcing better spinal alignment.
Other foam products that can help improve your day at work as well. Cushioning pads in front of the keyboard and mouse soften rigid surfaces for computer work and can offer an improved usage angle. Frequently used reference materials can find a functional home on small wedge foam holders that create hands-free viewing. Even something as simple as raising your computer monitor to a more comfortable eye level with an old phone book can have a beneficial impact on your health.
