Small Home Office? You Can Still Have an Ergonomic Workspace
It's time to learn how to create an ergonomic home office. Now that we’ve worked at home for over two years, stop sacrificing proper office ergonomics and comfort.
Here are some easy tips to make sure your home workspace is ergonomically correct and organized.
Convert Your Makeshift Home Office into an Ergonomic Workstation
Proper ergonomics shouldn’t only follow us into the corporate office. That’s why we’re intent on providing people with health positive, exceptionally comfortable and enjoyable work environments, no matter the workspace.
During the height of COVID-19, close to 70% of full-time employees worked from home. This meant that most people had to suddenly shift any open space in their home into a makeshift office.
Although your home office might be in an unexpected location, any space can be transformed into a comfortable and healthful workspace with the right equipment and set-up.
How to Create an Ergonomic Home Office
It’s time to move away from the kitchen or card table as your makeshift desk and into something much more ergonomic and comfortable. If you’re working from a small space in your house or apartment, NEXposture produces a compact desk mini-mobile base that's the perfect fit.
Or, if you’re unwilling to part with your existing desk, no worries, we also offer our Retrofit model. This desk converter transforms any rectangular freestanding desk work surface or table into a solution to deliver the next level of comfort and ergonomic support.

1. Having the Right Desk
Studies have consistently proven that using an ergonomic desk can improve health, mood, productivity, and focus.
Standing desks are great, but we still sit for 70% of the time. Therefore, the majority of that time is in a static, forward slumping posture, which is not only uncomfortable but is also unhealthy.
Slumping strains neck muscles and tendons, while adding 40% of pressure to the lumbar region.
When reclining with NEXposture, the neck flexes automatically to balance the head’s center of gravity above the bottom of the neck reducing neck and shoulder muscle activity while constant movement reduces static stress.

2. Having the Right Chair
Using the correct ergonomic chair can benefit your comfort, health, productivity and mood while using the correct desk.
There are approximately 6 main features of a good ergonomic chair, including easily adjustable seat height, lumbar support along with a well contoured seat or flexible mesh material.
However, it’s not enough to simply just use an ergonomic chair. Both your chair and desk need to work together as an ergonomically friendly workspace to achieve a premium level of comfort.
Our ergonomic work surfaces pair well with any ergonomic chair to maximize your comfort and productivity.
3. Staying Organized
Due to your other important responsibilities at home, working from home can quickly become unorganized. Whether your home office is in your bedroom, dining room, or den space, it can get messy easily.
Furthermore, keeping a clean and correct set-up for your work can help you stay focused while working from home.
That’s why every NEXposture desk has a wire management system built into the active and customizable desktop, which takes one less mess out of your workspace.
