It’s no secret that telecommuting can come with an assortment of benefits. However, if we’re not conscientious of how we’re working, we can quickly put our body, and subsequently mind, under unneeded stress.
Between accidental bad posture and awkward joint positions, remote working can lead to all sorts of strained working positions.
Fortunately, an array of unique products exist that can help us feel good physically and increase our productivity so we can make the most of the workday.
Let’s take a deeper dive into the ergonomic chairs, cushions, desks that’ll have you looking forward to your next working session.
The Embody Chair by Herman Miller boasts six ergonomic functions to encourage posture, including a working recline to reduce spine compression. The skin-like covering of the chair will keep you cool and as an added bonus, it comes with a 12-year warranty.
For a more affordable option, go for the Sayl Chair by Herman Miller. It’s a “life unframed” chair that features design and ergonomics meant to promote a sense of seated freedom!
The AmazonBasics High-Back Executive Swivel Chair will set you back less than $150 and offers a pneumatic seat-height adjustment, 360-degree swivel, and smooth-rolling casters for your convenience.
What’s a chair without a memory foam seat cushion? This ComfiLife Gel Enhanced Seat Cushion is non-slip and contains both gel and memory foam for cozy seated comfort.

Set your programmed heights and organize your set-up with built-in cable management.
