Why designers of modern furniture in NYC should
consider text necks as a problem they can solve

  • Work in offices is no more restricted to the desk
    and the desktop on it. Gadgets like tablets,
    smartphones etc. have risen to prominence as a
    means of facilitating faster completion of work.
    While the use of gadgets have increased
    efficiency, it is slowly making us vulnerable to
    health problems such as the text neck syndrome.

Four effective ways to relieve text neck in
offices
  • Use of tech supportive office furniture
  • The ergonomics of furniture in the office plays a
    significant role in maintaining the posture of
    the employee. Besides comfortable arrangements of
    sitting, modern office furniture should be
    designed well enough to facilitate the use of
    gadgets in a relatively healthy way.
  • Alternate sitting and standing arrangements
  • A lot of debate is happening over the comparative
    effectiveness of sitting and standing
    arrangements in offices. It has been seen that
    maintaining the same posture for prolonged
    periods may give rise to physical problems.

Four effective ways to relieve text neck in
offices
  • Mild exercise sessions
  • Employees should be encouraged to practice mild
    exercises to prevent the occurrence of neck and
    back sprains. Exercise routines like Yoga and
    Pilates are extremely helpful in strengthening
    ones joint flexibility and endurance.
  • Interval breaks
  • An aspect most employees fail to determine is the
    optimum amount of work they should do in one
    sitting. Short breaks at appropriate intervals
    are extremely important albeit, sans tablet and
    smartphone.

How contemporary modern furniture needs to evolve
to text neck syndrome
  • A regular office employee working with modern
    furniture in NYC today spends an average of 2-4
    hours daily, hunching over his or her personal
    gadget to check mails, send text messages and
    interact on social media. This results in severe
    pressure on the nape and the spine, which gives
    rise to a pinching pain named as text neck
    syndrome.
  • Text necks cause sprains, strains on eyes and
    tend to destroy the natural curvature of our
    back. One might not realize, but text neck is a
    reason to blame for our gradually worsening
    ability to handle mental stress as well as our
    faulty posture.
