Choosing a Mattress.

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Choosing a mattress is essential for a good nights sleep. Everyone has different sleep needs but the majority of people need at least 7-9 hours quality sleep per night. A noisy enviroment, the room temperature or an uncomfortable mattress can all contribute to a poor nights sleep. Lack of sleep can cause memory loss, irritability and can increase stress levels.

The two important things to consider when looking for a new mattress are comfort and support.

Foam Mattresses

These are often inexpensive but offer little support and shouldnt be slept on regularly. They are good for use in a guest room.

Sprung

Support comes from the springs inside the mattress and the comfort comes from the padding. Both should mould to your body and support your spine.

Foam Topper (Part Sprung Part Foam)

These are part sprung and part foam, giving you the support from the springs but at the same time giving you the comfort of the foam. Our Supreme Vasco Memory Foam and Pocket Sprung Mattress is fantastic for supporting key areas such as the Neck, Back and Shoulders. All which lead to a great nights sleep.

A good Mattress is an important investment for your health and a great nights sleep, leaving you waking up feeling refreshed and ready to face the day ahead.

 

 

 

Furniture ergonomics and the home office

Monday, January 24th, 2011

If you work from home it’s important to ensure that your office is set up not only to maximise your productivity but also to ensure that you have good posture while you work. Ergonomics is the science of equipment and furniture design and how it relates to the human body when it is occupied in such a way.

Ergonomics has been an important part of health and safety in office jobs for a long time, and it’s equally important to make certain that the furniture in your home office is arranged to provide comfort and safety when working.

Central to the home office, your desk should be of a suitable height and allow plenty of room for your legs to move around underneath whilst sitting at the desk.

Likewise, a good quality chair is the lynchpin of the home office. It is where you will do the majority of your work, and will most probably sit for extended periods of time on a daily basis, so it’s essential to make sure it’s comfortable and facilitates good posture, in order to avoid discomfort and repetitive strain injury. A good chair should have the ability to adjust height, adjustable backrests and armrests and a tilt and swivel base. It should enable you to sit at a 45 degree position from your workspace.

Most likely, you work on a computer much of the time, and it’s also important to think about how this is situated. Ideally, one should sit at arm’s length from the monitor screen, while the keyboard should be directly in front of you. As laptops do not allow for this adjustment, it is recommended to use a desktop computer in the office, or buy an external USB keyboard.
