Working from home doesn't have to be painful

, by Cloe de Vries, 4 min reading time

Do you suffer from your lower back? Research shows that one in five suffers from back pain. The cause of this is often due to an incorrect sitting posture. Sitting is very stressful for the back, especially for the lower back.

First aid for back pain. What should you do?

      • Keep moving. Man is not made to sit
      • Rest well and adopt a correct sleeping position
      • Stretching of the muscles
      • Avoid unhealthy foods
      • Stand up straight enough
      • Invest in a good ergonomic chair

You take the first steps on your own. We help you with step 5 and step 6.


Ergonomics is adapting people's environment. Every person needs a workplace that adapts to your body.

Ergonomic desk table

The average person works about 8 hours a day. Of course we do this while sitting. Prolonged sitting has health risks and can even lead to premature death. In the long term, this can result in obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure.

To stay healthy, it is best to get up every half hour. It goes without saying that you cannot take a coffee break every half hour. With a sit-stand desk you can interact. One moment you can sit and the next moment you stand. Variety is the message.

Benefits of a sit-stand desk

    • Higher productivity
    • Reduction of back, shoulder and neck complaints
    • Good health
    • Burning calories
    • Less absenteeism
    • Fewer (coffee) breaks

A sit-stand desk provides a more varied working position. Working becomes a lot more pleasant with a sit-stand desk

Ergonomic office chair

An ergonomic office chair is therefore an office chair that you adjust to achieve the best sitting position.

Some tips for a good sitting posture

    • Place your feet completely on the floor. Make sure your knees are lower than your hips.
    • Leave enough distance between the seat of the chair and your knee. You do the check like this, place your fist between your chair and the back of your knees. If it fits, the spacing is perfect.
    • Adjust the low back of your chair so that it is just above your waist
    • Support your shoulders against the backrest. Don't bend over and lean back slightly.
    • Choose the right office chair for your height and weight


The ERGO office chairs are highly recommended. Avoid back problems and adjust your office chair with the numerous options. Discover our ERGO models and choose your perfect match. We have three types of office chairs. For each his own.
