Many of us spend several hours per day in a rolling office chair. And most of us experience some level of discomfort because of it. While you’ve probably read about ergonomic desk chairs that can help, you may be surprised to learn that many discomfort issues can be traced to a less than supportive chair mat. Plastic mats are thin and dent easily, leaving your chair stuck in the ruts. If you think about your time in an office chair it’s probably filled with a lot of the following:
• Straining your back to scoot your chair.
• Half standing to "shove" your chair backward.
• Grasping the armrests to "pull" your chair forward or sideways.
We all do this all day. And when repeated over and over, any of these actions will lower productivity and eventually cause pain. Combined, they can make for a miserable work experience.
Another problem issue for seated workers is staying in an ergonomically proper posture. Experts advise keeping your spine firmly supported and arms neutral while working at a desk. But thin plastic chair mats make that posture challenging to hold when your chair sinks into a divot. Too often, lack of chair mobility leads to what ergonomic experts refer to as "perching" – where the user scoots up to sit just on the front edge of the seat pan. Without the proper support of the chair’s backrest and armrests, postural muscles fatigue and you end up slouching.
Ultimately, the reason that office chairs have wheels is to enable them to move easily across the floor. And we know that rolling is significantly impeded when office chairs are stuck in the dents of cheap plastic chair mats. To improve your office and reduce ergonomic discomfort, you need a firm even surface to roll on. You could put down a sheet of plywood, but that’s not going to look very stylish! Instead, you can glide smoothly and effortlessly by installing a Glass Office Chair Mat by Vitrazza®.
