Ergonomics is such a growing market that most ergonomic chairs are just a fraction more than there non-ergo counterparts. The main way to know if a product is ergonomic is if it says so. Companies who have energy saver technology advertise it. Ergonomic products will say loud and proud that they are ergonomic. If a product doesn’t openly advertise that it is ergonomic than either it was not designed to be sensitive to ergonomics or it is a cheap knockoff.
Ergonomic is the relationship between you, the equipment and the environment for productive activity in daily living. Normally this area is related to the working environment, because of the risks involved in operating machinery. Productive activity is also used in the home, using equipment or machinery, therefore should also be considered as ergonomic. The difference is that the work at home is not paid employment! If you continue to read my articles, it will help you understand that ergonomics is not just about the paid employment environment. It should include activities that we perform daily in the home. The relationships are identical, except there are no financial incentives in the home!
Ergonomics includes more than just office chairs. There is a whole industry devoted to proper office ergonomics. After working in the ergonomic industry for a number of years, I started to realize that I am often asked, ”What kinds of products are ergonomic?” In the office environment you can buy ergonomic stools for doctors or factory workers, posture knee chairs for those who work on computers, swopper models to help increase the muscles that promote good posture, and pretty much every chair design comes in an ergonomic model.
Most people spend most of our waking hours in the office and sit at the desk all day. Sitting for long periods of time builds up pressure on the spine and cause back pain or other health problems.

Ergonomic products are the best friends for your back and neck because they are designed keeping in mind your body and its contours. Ergonomic chairs keep your spinal chord straight and reduce your fatigue drastically. This, ultimately, enhances the productivity.
