Ergohuman – from Manufacture to Delivery

References are so important, aren’t they? Okay, they’re essential when applying for a job but they’re also important for many other needs.
In this moment, I’m talking chairs. Not just any chair but ergonomic office chairs. Technology in tandem with ergonomics have now produced many wonders in the office chair market but this doesn’t mean that every one of those chairs is going to be suitable for you. After all, we’re different shapes and sizes, different jobs demand different things from our personal frame and build and then there’s the other point of attraction. Yes, the ergonomic office chairs of today can be ‘very becoming (mine’s the Ergohuman Mirus)’ and so that ‘eye candy’ which normally applies to spotting good lookers might also apply to other items too. If the chair gives you that personal buzz, joining forces with it every day gives you a personal satisfaction and getting your head round the complexities of work feel naturally comfortable.

If I was ready to buy another ergonomic office chair, I would look for a supplier who could provide me with genuine references from purchasers of the models in which I was registering a personal interest. ‘Great’ may do little for me but to hear that a chair is a great piece of kit, that the user’s back clicked into place when using the chair correctly, or maybe even that someone is now feeling all-round benefits in both work and home life would make me look more into that particular office chair. I’d also be interested in feedback on the supplier and subsequent delivery time, a bit like those yellow stars you see against the details of well-seasoned Ebay sellers, telling you that they regularly come up with the goods and services expected when buying from strangers.
Me? I’d probably choose another Ergohuman Mirus, once again with mesh upholstery. Now that I know this chair and its adjustments can meet my personal needs, I might look at other chairs in the Ergohuman range e.g. the Nefil and the Ergohuman Plus, as this company, the supplier service and the delivery time, have already been proven to me. If I change anything, it would be the colour, as there’s a fantastic range to choose from.

I don’t need a new Mirus chair yet, as the Ergohuman range of chairs are very sustainable but I am going to treat myself to a footrest. Serving also as a leg rest when my chair is in a reclined position, this little added extra is going to heighten my pleasure during those laid back hours.
That’s me sorted … .

Ergonomic Office Chairs

We live in a designer world, where a dress is no longer a dress but a Stella McCartney number, a suit is a Versace and a car is referred to as the Porsche or some other ‘to die for’ brand name on four wheels. So, why shouldn’t you refer to your own ergonomic office chairs as a Nefil, a Mirus or a Ergohuman?

Why not?

Okay, it’ll be ‘out of the norm’ but think of the good advice you’ll be imparting to your family, friends and colleagues.

What I’m saying is – there’s an office chair but then there’s an ergonomic office chair and, unlike the designer ‘must haves’ mentioned earlier, a good ergonomic office chair doesn’t cost the earth.

When talking about cars, a firefighter friend told me that there are certain cars which stand up better to accident damage (e.g. the Alexis) and the same can be said for your office chair. Some will simply be office chairs, while others will give you additional support and improve your posture.

So, if you are shopping for your own ergonomic office chair, start (and, might I add, finish) with the Ergohuman range. Of the three I have already mentioned, all have those important adjustments, like seat height, seat tilt and that all-important lumbar support section, meaning the design isn’t ‘off the peg’ but made to measure, for you, whoever you are.

You can also go for additional extras, like a headrest and a leg rest, so think the whole picture when you are deciding what’s right for you. What does your job entail?

The duties of your job might make certain features more important to you. For example, that seat tilt. If your job means you are up and down all day long, a forward tilt will actually aid you in standing up, taking some of that pressure of your legs which normally comes from getting up from a more horizontal position.

Once you’ve chosen the right model for you, you can move on to choosing the right colour and the Ergohuman range do much more than black and blue. I’d go for a subtle autumn shade and I’d choose a mesh upholstery, as it’s durable, comfortable and easy to care for.

Are you starting to get the picture? You know, shopping for ergonomic office chairs can be more fun than shopping for something to wear. With the right advice and professional support, you won’t be thinking of taking it back the next day.
