Specificities of professional chairs

Many staff perform tasks which require them to be particularly attentive for long periods of time. Whether standing or sitting, uncomfortable postures or muscular fatigue can adversely affect fine motor skills and concentration and exert a continual stress on the spine. Indeed, back problems are one of the leading causes of lost time.

However, sitting for long periods can in itself be a constraint, and may have adverse medium-term effects if a person cannot work in a comfortable seated position and change their posture regularly. Changing sitting position is important to promote blood flow and avoid fatigue in the legs and lumbar region. It also encourages the flow of nutrients in intervertebral discs.

We are well aware that it is not always easy to find a balance between comfort and optimal efficiency at the workplace. Seat heights and support positions vary widely with each person's morphology (height, weight, etc.) and depend on the type of work performed. For this reason workers often consider their seats as belonging to them. In addition, each seat must be perfectly suited to the intended work situation. Every Kango seat has mechanical systems enabling it to be adjusted exactly to the type of work and the needs of individual users.

Particular attention should therefore be paid to choosing work seats, which are long-term investments that see continuous use. The first step is to determine the most appropriate position for the type of work to be performed, then select the seat which best suits this position. A few key questions need to be asked.
