Sitting back with SitFit

SitFit utilises an advanced algorithmic formula using an individual’s specific measurements and generates a “best fit” option based on seat and backrest dimensions of the chair.

 

With 24 different chair combinations, it allows individuals and companies to match the best possible chair for their needs, delivering greater comfort and productivity.

 

SitFit was launched by Sit Back & Relax, whose “ergo squad” is trained in every aspect of Living Brands’ extensive product ranges.

 

“Back pain in the workplace is the single biggest contributor to absenteeism and lack of productivity,” founder Nigel Hobbs says.

 

“In our experience, the majority of back-related issues in the workplace are caused by poor posture while seated.”

 

“This is most often because the worker’s chair is too big or too small, lacking any sort of ergonomic qualities… SitFit allows individuals and companies to design a seating program.”

 

Given the focus on OH&S in the workplace, how else might you prevent work-related injuries?
