BackApp Now Offering Ergonomic Office Chairs to Combat Sitting-Related Injury


Malvern, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/20/2014 -- Ergonomic products are not just about superficial comfort during the workday. Many people aren’t aware of the health risks of poor posture and furniture that does not complement the human body. Close to a million people each year lose days of work to get medical attention for strained necks, back pain, and sprained wrists. Between lost work hours and medical expenses, these conditions cost businesses over $20 billion in 2011, according to a 2013 report by Liberty Mutual Insurance. BackApp is out to fix these problems and get the world sitting pretty again with ergonomic chairs available from their online store.

If these exorbitant costs aren’t motivation enough to change the way people sit when they work, BackApp doesn’t know what is. Even a small business who doesn’t feel they have the budget for advanced chair technology should consider that for every $1 a company spends one making their workers safer, they receive a $4-$6 return on investment in the form of increased productivity, fewer missed days, and less money spent on medical costs.

Starting at just $695, BackApp Ergonomic Office Chairs offer stool-style seating designed to keep the user’s back straight. Backless for the purposes of posture, the chairs also feature a footrest padded with soft damping material to reduce stress on the legs, as well. These ergonomic computer chairs are high quality, with a frame constructed from polished chrome steel and cushion made of form-molded polyurethane foam. At just 17.6 pounds, the chair can easily be used anywhere in the office. Pair ergonomic chairs from BackApp with their height-adjustable ergonomic desks for a full ergonomic workspace.
