Placement of a Computer and Phone Most modern reception desk furniture is designed to be used with a computer and keyboard. When you are choosing which type of desk to use in the reception area, it is best to find one that allows the computer to be placed in the corner of the desk instead of in the center. The receptionist will divide his or her time between talking with customers over the middle of the desk and working with the computer. It is more inviting if the middle of the desk is clear so that conversations can be had comfortably. The phone should be placed beside the receptionist instead of over the center of the desk, as well Decorative Elements Reception desk furniture is practical, but it also needs to be somewhat personal. The furniture in the reception area needs to be lightly decorated so that it seems more inviting and less cold. Nice reception desk decorations can include small flower arrangements or photos that deal with the type of business that the firm does.
The right chair combined with ergonomic training can also reduce workplace injuries. Even if you do not already have wrist or back problems, an ergonomic chair can help you maintain the right posture to avoid strain, carpel tunnel syndrome, lower back pain, and spinal disc injury. The National Institute of Health recommends choosing a chair with all of the necessary adjustments to support proper posture. This includes a chair with casters and a five-point base; a seat pan with dense, small-cell foam padding or coils; a backrest that is either curved or small enough to fit the small of the back; soft armrests with an adjustable height and width; a hydraulic seat heat adjustment feature; and a tilt adjustment to transfer some body weight to the chair’s backrest.Embody Chair by Herman Miller If you’re not working with a budget, why not get the very best? The Embody Chair by Herman Miller is the first chair made with a health-positive design. It was designed by Bill Stumpf, who created the original Aeron chair, and Jeff Weber with a goal of supporting healthy circulation and making sitting for hours a day easier on the back and spine. Physicians and engineers were also consulted to create the specifications for the Embody, which features a unique exposed exoskeleton made to mimic the human spine. The chair’s back moves with you throughout the day, keeping your spine in alignment and supporting the lower back, all without any adjustments on your part. If you are looking for an ergonomic chair that will fit in your budget, here are our picks for the 10 best ergonomic office chairs for your work space to counteract neck and lower back pain and help you stay comfortable and productive.
Steelcase Leap Fabric Chair Not everyone can afford to spend $1000 or more on a chair. That doesn’t mean you should have to settle for an inferior product. In fact, the Leap Fabric Chair is the best selling ergonomic chair Steelcase produces. This means you can be confident that you are purchasing a reliable and comfortable product. One of the best features of this chair is Steelcase’s patented LiveBack technology. That means that this chair actually conforms to the shape of your back, offering much-needed support and keeping you comfortable for longer periods of time than ever before. The chair also glides to accommodate your posture as you change position or recline, helping to keep your work in focus while helping your back and neck stay comfortable and pain-free.
Lateral file cabinets on wheels are also available, and their shape is more stable for rolling than vertical file cabinets on wheels. About the only "disadvantage" of wood lateral file cabinets is that they resemble nice furniture and cant always take the manhandling that metal file cabinets regularly take. Most people dont expect for a metal file cabinet to be attractive. With some models of wood lateral file cabinets, the laminate is easy to scratch or mar. This is primarily a problem with lower priced file cabinets. But overall, people like lateral file cabinets, whether wood or metal, for their easier access and space maximizing properties. Without having to pull the drawers out as far as with vertical filing cabinets, access is easier, and tipping forward is less of a threat.
As popular as the Aeron chair is, it does have competition with the Haworth Zody chair. The Zody chair is the only chair to ever get an endorsement from the American Physical Therapy Association. As you may expect, this chair puts function over form. The chair isn’t unattractive — in fact, Haworth commisioned the German design company Ito design for assistance — but its focus on science and ergonomics is what sets it apart. The Zody chair features a unique asymmetrical adjustment system designed with the University of Michigan’s Human Performance Institute, which allows you to target problem areas like the lower back and make the chair conform to your body.
