The Science of Comfort: Importance of Ergonomic Laboratory Chairs & Stools

Posted by Marketing Team on



In our daily working life inside a laboratory, one of the factors that rarely gets explored is the way the seating arrangement affects our well-being and productivity. Although the use of ergonomic laboratory seats follows strict enforcement of these protocols, one cannot ignore their importance. This article will discuss the critical importance of ergonomic laboratory stools, and indeed the specialized MSE PRO™ product line, in facilitating both workplace productivity and general bodily health within laboratory environments.

How Does Your Chairs and Stools Affect Your Work?

Laboratories, like offices and factories, need to think of ergonomics, which is the science of optimizing human ability and well-being in a particular space. Therefore, ergonomics in labs holds the same importance as it does in offices or industrial workspaces. The proper seating arrangement directly affects many aspects of performance such as level of productivity, mental health, mood, posture and attention. It is unfathomable how much potential harm can be contributed by poor ergonomics to injury occurrence, but only a few people know about this fact. Nevertheless, it can be a leading cause of developing serious back and joint pain due to inadequate body posture and static positions for a long time.



The Perfect Sitting Position

One must obtain the ideal sitting position to reduce pressure and strain on the body. Here are some key guidelines:

  • Ensure your feet are flat on the floor or a footrest.
  • Maintain a reclining position between 100-110° if applicable.
  • Position your hips as far back into the chair as possible.
  • Keep your knees at 90° or less, ideally at hip level or higher.
  • Take advantage of back supports (i.e. lumbar support) as much as possible.
