Wellness in Work From HomeErgonomics is our thing.

And it’s all about well-being for body and mind, in your workday and beyond.

Ergonomics matter. Here's why.

Your body and mind work together—here’s how comfort can boost your brain.

We really get into this stuff.

You don’t have to be an ergonomist to appreciate comfort, but it sure does help to have one on staff. Meet Dr. Teresa Bellingar, our very own in-house ergonomist. She spends her days researching, developing, and testing our designs to make sure each one meets the highest standards.

One reason we love Dr. Teresa? She shows everyday people how ergonomics can improve their lives and their work.

Whether it’s inspiring work-from-home setups or teaching Pilates, I’m passionate about helping people feel better through ergonomics.


Four chairs. Five postures. One champ.

We have a winner.

In third-party comfort studies, our Fern chair takes first time and time again. For testing, users sit in four different chairs and in five different positions, reporting their perceived levels of comfort and support. Pressure maps show where each user experienced the most—and least— discomfort.

A happier spine, stat.

An ergonomic chair goes a long way in helping perfect your posture. With lumbar support and flexible comfort, you’ll learn what sitting correctly feels like—and how to avoid the discomfort of not.

WFH Tip No. 1

Line of Sight

  1. Sit or stand in a centered position in front of your monitor.
  2. Adjust the monitor to be about an arm’s length away, and at a height that keeps your head in an upright, neutral position.
  3. Keep a task light at your desk to avoid eye strain.

WFH Tip No. 2

Arms and Wrists

  1. Keep the items you use often within easy reach to lessen strain through the day.
  2. Make sure your elbows and arms stay close to your body as you work. Your upper arms should hang down straight at your sides.
  3. As you work, maintain an elbow angle between 70 and 120 degrees. Try to keep your wrists straight.
  4. The height of your desk should offer support for your forearms to help you avoid leaning to one side or lifting your shoulders.

WFH Tip No. 3


  1. Use an adjustable chair that gives you support in upright, reclined, and forward tilt positions.
  2. Torso to thigh angle should be 90 degrees or greater when sitting.
  3. When sitting, armrests should not interfere with user getting close to the worksurface.
  4. Clearance under the worksurface should allow room for legs without contacting the surface above.
  5. Allow for freedom of movement—there should be no obstructions at foot level.
  6. Feet should be flat on the floor or on a footrest when sitting.

WFH Tip No. 4


  1. Provide a height-adjustable table to offer opportunities to change positions and postures.
  2. Begin standing in sessions that last 15 minutes or less and slowly increase standing time.
  3. Think movement/steps and posture change throughout the workday. It is important to assume different postures while standing. Every step helps the body maintain proper metabolism.
  4. Allow for freedom of movement—there should be no obstructions at foot level.
