It is crucial that you maintain good posture at work. Back pain is one of the most common reasons for people missing work; according to the Global Burden of Disease 2010, low back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide.
Have you ever gotten back pain from working at a table or desk that wasn’t your height? Bending over for hours each day will surely lead to problems. After all, each year an estimated half of all working Americans will admit they have back pain symptoms (1) . LTW Ergonomic Solutions is working to make sure you’re part of the half of America (or wherever you are in the world) with no back pain that does not have to miss work because of it. And this is not an inexpensive problem; Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on back pain (2).
Our ergonomic bases are height adjustable. This means that, with the push of a button, you can change the height to whatever is most comfortable to you. Change the height when you decide to stand instead of sit. This aspect of our bases is especially helpful for company owners who have many people working at a single base different times throughout the work day. Each employee who uses one of these bases can adjust the base to their individual height so they can work safely, comfortably, and ergonomically.
If you have bad posture at your tool bench in your garage, we have a base for you. If you are a company owner with employees working diligently at non-height-adjustable fixtures, we have a base for you. (How many of these employees miss work because of back pain?) If you have a desk job, we have a base for you.
