Ergonomics Firm Neutral Posture Recognized With Award

December 06, 2007

Ergonomic office solutions provider Neutral Posture announced today that its newest offering, the N·tune Seating System, has earned the company its fifth consecutive Attendees’ Choice Award at the 2007 National Ergonomics Conference and Exposition (NECE) in Las Vegas. Neutral Posture’s N·tune Seating System has earned the honor by providing a realistic solution to the challenges of implementing the recommended Stand/Sit office environment.
 
“Rather than standing up to take a break from sitting,” says Dr. Mark Benden, Ergonomist and Executive VP for Neutral Posture, “We say, letsitting be the break from standing.” This idea posed the question, “Why bias computer stations toward only sitting when there are so many benefits to mixing your day up with sitting and standing?” 
 
Anyone who has done either all day long knows he has a point. Research has proven that too much of either can be detrimental to employees’ health and well-being. Unfortunately, computer advancements have left most workers so sedentary and tied to their desks that it becomes important to discover ways to provide opportunities for movement during the work day.
 
Benden developed the N·tune Seating System with a team of Neutral Posture engineers and ergonomists to integrate the chair/stool design with the storage and layout potential of systems furniture for the home or office. The N·tune Seating System includes patented components like the N·step and the N·position that can be used with any system furniture capable of being set up at standing height. The Ntune concept is all about raising desk heights from 30” up to 40” and then raising the chair, to stool height, allowing users to easily and freely stand up to work when needed. It’s really that simple, but for some, the idea is still very radical. For others, who are ready to depart from the workplace “norm” however, and become “in tune” with what our bodies need, there are benefits to be had.
 
At the 2007 NECE in Las Vegas, attendees cast their votes for new products that they thought offered the best opportunity to increase productivity while improving workplace health and safety. NECE brings together ergonomic professionals and those who are interested in establishing ergonomic programs and protecting employees’ health and safety. Attendees are always looking for improved products and innovative ergonomic solutions, and Neutral Posture is once again meeting their needs. This award is not only prestigious, but rewarding because it is voted on by ergonomic professionals and industry peers.
