Kinds of Lumbar Support and Ergonomic Office Chairs
With the pandemic driving more people to work at home or doing business online, it has forced us to sit in front of the computers and work like an automaton. Countless hours in the sitting position in front of the screen, which can be very harmful to the back. Even if we are not working, we spent our free time either driving, watching TV for hours on end, or gaming. It seems we are always in the sitting position.
What is the best Ergonomic chair for a short person?
Let’s face it, not everyone is built the same. People come in all shapes and sizes. They may be tall, thin, stout, or small in stature. Most office chairs are built to accommodate the average person. If you are petite or short in stature (under 5’3” for women and under 5’8” for men), your ergonomic chair could be compounding your already existing aches and pains or could create new ones.
Mindfulness and Meditation on an Ergonomic Chair: A Crash or a Click
Mindfulness and Meditation on an Ergonomic Chair: A Crash or a Click
“Find your inner Zen; ground yourself and field your auric shield with light”.
Every day, we wake up with the desire to fill our centers with love and light. We chant that affirmation. We wake up in the morning feeling hopeful that Gaia would bless us with all the abundance and all our spirit guides will be on our favor, showering us with the first phone call from a high school crush or an inbox with a message of the 80% off for all the watches from your favorite watch store. Yet, the moment the phone rings, you’d just realize that the call from your high school crush would be his wedding invitation for you (after so many years of liking, putting a heart on all his posts, and for being up until late at night to see his latest uploaded vlog on the social media) and the watch you’re really desiring has already been out of stock. We would just end up asking ourselves: what else could go wrong? This thought is something that needs to be acknowledged and release. As what spiritual teachers say “acknowledge and release”. Every emotion should be known and one should let go of the negative feelings that weaken our spirit. At times, they all fall unto one spectrum. In most worse cases, it’s on our spectrum that these negative vibes fall. A lot of blog posts and tutorials online may help us how to do the right meditation. There are some teachers who say that the perfect way to do the meditation is to ground yourself on the floor with pillows around. Light some incense, center yourself and empty your mind. That’s pretty challenging, right? A lot of blogsites will teach us that the mindfulness habit that we need to observe and practice are the following: mindfulness, meditation, scripting (a manifestation practice wherein you’ll need to write down the great things or positive things about yourself or you may write the opposite qualities that y
Why Ergonomists Recommend Chairs with Lumbar Support
Whether you are studying at University, working in an office or working from home via technology one thing is certain you are spending a majority of the work day in some type of chair. Whether the chair is an office chair, desk chair, gaming chair, accent chair, bean bag chair, papasan chair, massage chair, ergonomic chair or egg chair their sole purpose is to provide a chair for which to sit.
While this is true, it is imperative to understand that sometimes a chair is not just a chair. Each chair is not created equal. Short term comfort cannot replace the effects associated with long term pain. This is why it is so important to create a workspace that is ergonomically correct to prevent these preventable symptoms.
By the end of that work day, if you don’t have the appropriate lumbar support you may notice that you are suffering from low back pain, neck pain and/or headaches. It is essential that you have the appropriate lumbar support with your office chair to ensure that your posture is correct. Having the appropriate posture helps alleviate that unwanted pain.
Ergonomists are specialists who conduct research on the study of Ergonomics. Proper ergonomics are essential to creating a workspace that will protect your health.
What is Ergonomics ?
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill defines ergonomics as the following, “Ergonomics can roughly be defined as the study of people in their working environment. More specifically, an ergonomist designs or modifies the work to fit the worker, not the other way around. The goal is to eliminate discomfort and risk of injury due to work. In other words, the employee is our first priority in analyzing a workstation” ( UNC-CH, 2020).
Ergonomics means creating a workspace environment around the individual, not the other way around. It provides a workspace uniquely created to you for which your individual physiology is taken into consideration

Durability Test on Flexispot Electric Standing Desk
Why durability test is needed?
A durability test is a test simulating the repeated application of loads or movement of components occurring during long-term use. It evaluates how well a product holds up when put to the test beyond its expected or designated function.
Standing desks need to be suitable for use and durable, they should be strong enough to withstand a reasonable weight and joints should remain tight with use over time. To the average consumer, the desire for longer lasting probably seems beyond debate. Durability test is becoming increasingly important as manufacturers strive to increase the reliability of their products.
The last thing you want is a desk that won’t last.
What is the test process?
The chosen sample for testing is Flexispot E1 standing desk frame with 55 “X 30” desktop. The total load of the desk is 190.52 lbs, and the adjustment range for testing is from 28.5” to 47.4”. Before starting the test, a cycle counter is necessary to be installed with the desk, as it will record up and down movements every time. The test process is to run 2 full cycles of up and down adjustment within about 2 minutes, and then rest 18 minutes before repeating the movement before. This experiment began from Aug. 9th, 2018, and till Dec. 29th, 2018, which is 141 days later, the test still continues as the desk keeps working. Experimenters suspended the test shortly to make a note. The cycle counter display shows 40832, indicating that 40832 times vertical movements already occurred in the past 141 days. While pressing the buttons manually, this Flexispot E1 standing desk is still able to go up and down smoothly and stably.
Why do you choose Flexispot?
As the test result above illustrates, regardless of 40832 times up and down adjustments w
How Durable Are FlexiSpot Desktops?
When it comes to choosing the perfect desktop surface for your new electric standing desk, durability is one of the most important features you can shop for. But, how exactly do you measure durability? Well, we think a good field test does the trick. So, we recently put a standard FlexiSpot desktop through a four-part durability test to see how it stood up to a little abuse. Here’s what we discovered.
Test #1: Scratch Test
Customers often ask how susceptible FlexiSpot desktop surfaces are to scratches. It’s a smart question since scratches take away from the desk’s beauty. They also make tasks that require a smooth surface, like writing and drawing, more challenging.
For our scratch test, we didn’t hold back. We grabbed a stainless steel fork from the kitchen and repeatedly scraped the prongs along the surface of the desk.
Result: Despite our best efforts, the fork didn’t leave behind a single scratch.
Test #2: Weight Capacity Test
With multiple monitors, desk accessories, a full-size keyboard, a mouse and paperwork, it’s easy for a desktop to fill up with stuff quickly. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that one of the first questions customers ask is: “How much weight can a FlexiSpot desktop support?”.
To help answer that question, we tested to see what would happen when a 178-lb man stood on the desktop and moved around a bit. While the technical specifications on the FlexiSpot
