Benefits of choosing a Teknik Office Chair
Teknik office chairs are ergonomically designed to be comfortable even when used for long periods, supporting the body and improving posture to help prevent sitting related muscoskeletal aches and pains. As a leader in ergonomic office chairs they have led innovation to support back, shoulder and neck health.
The health implications of spending 30+ hours of the week sitting at our desks every week are becoming known and from this knowledge Teknik have developed ergonomic office chairs to reduce stresses in our spines and hips.
Guide to Teknik Office Chairs
Teknik chairs cater to all users ranging in height, weight and work load. They are adjustable to allow users to adapt the chair to individual needs. Take a look at our quick guide to our range.
Teknik Draughter Range
Our range of medium backed Teknik Draughter chairs are height adjustable and have off-floor foot rests. For enhanced lumbar support choose the Ergo Twin Deluxe and for pelvic tilt choose the Ergo Blaster Deluxe option. Perfect if you move about a lot during the day or are at your desk for only part of the week.
Teknik ErgoPlus 24 range
For longer periods at your desk opt for the higher backed Teknik Office Ergo Plus chair certified for 24 hour use and rated up to 24 stone.
The ergonomic features of the ErgoPlus 24 support back, shoulder and neck health, including pelvic tilt adjustments, lumbar support, an anti-shock function, 2:1 back and seat syncron (5 position), 4 position seat slide, lumbar and ratchet back height adjustment and gas lift seat height adjustment.
For additional support and comfort opt for the Teknik Premier ErgoPlus 24 which also features arm rests.
Features of Teknik Ergonomic Office Chairs
Adjustable Seat height and Swivel
All Teknik office chairs are height adjustable allowing you to adjust the height to place your feet flat on the floor or in the case of the Draughter range onto a foot ring, which is essential for knee and back health, allowing the pressure to be taken off your lower spine.
All Teknik chairs also swivel to allow you to reach for papers and your phone without twisting.
All Teknik ErgoPlus chairs and the Ergo Blaster Deluxe medium backed chair have a seat that can be tilted which allows for correct positioning of the pelvis. A forward tilt of the pelvis affects almost everyone who sits a lot and this can lead to lower back pain, so it’s important to keep the pelvis neutral position when sitting, with 80-degree angles at the hips, knees and ankles.
Backrest Lumbar support
Lower back pain is one of the biggest causes of long term sickness and a common ailment amongst those who work at a desk for long periods. Proper lumbar support (support for the lower spine) is essential.
The ErgoPlus chairs and the Ergo Blaster Deluxe Draughter chairs support the natural ‘S’ shape of the spine, which prevents slumping and reduces stress on the spine and the pelvis.
All our Teknik ErgoPlus chairs have an adjustable backrest to allow you to move the backrest to more specifically support your own natural spine position, allowing the backrest to take some of the weight from your upper body, reducing the pressure on your spinal disks and muscles.
Not all Teknik chairs have armrests and this is because they aren’t right for everyone. If you spend long periods at your desk armrests should be considered, depending on the type of work you do and your personal habits. Armrests allow you to relax your shoulders, and tense shoulders lead to shoulder and neck pain and headache. However, you should not rest your arms on the armrests when typing as this reduces overall arm movement and therefore increases wrist movement leading to forearm muscle strain
Another important consideration if you work at a desk for long periods. A headrest supports the back of the head and the upper neck, reducing tension in the shoulders and upper torso.
