For those spending their working lives sat at a desk, there has been much research into the health concerns that this can trigger. Without a well-designed chair to properly support the body, sitting for prolonged periods can cause issues including spinal problems and increased blood pressure. In addition to the specialist consoles we provide here at Knotty, we also offer a range of ergonomic desk chairs and accessories to aid comfort, and improve working practices. Below, we’ve listed some of the key features that every desk chair should include.


Adjustable Seat Height and Armrests


In the case of many industries, including security, broadcasting, and process control, there may be many operators requiring to use one desk and chair at different times. That’s why ergonomic seats should always include height adjustability, to allow maximum employee comfort. At Knotty, we also offer desk height adjustability across most of our console range.


Increased Manoeuvrability


In order to access all controls on your broadcast desk or control room console, your desk chairs should be able to swivel and move with ease. This results in less straining to and increased manoeuvrability – which in turn creates an optimised workflow.


Backrest Lumbar Support


Another essential feature of every ergonomic chair, lumbar support is what is provided for the lower back. The chairs we can supply at Knotty are designed to support the natural ‘S’ shape of the back, reducing stress on the spine, pelvis and muscles.


Ergonomic Accessories


As well as our control room and broadcast studio chairs, we also offer a wide selection of additional accessories that can be added to your new furniture to improve functionality. These include adjustable monitor arms and mounts, keyboard trays and height adjustability, and much more.
