As a physician, aesthetician, manicurist, or clinician, considering which chair you should use in your practice, as choosing the doctor chair, you'll be sitting in for hours on end, can be very difficult.
When thinking of a doctor chair, we tend to think of hard-backed uncomfortable chairs.
However, it is essential that, when selecting a doctor's chair, you choose carefully, follow this guide, and only get the best of the best so that you won't be strained when while you spend hours seated.
When selecting a doctor chair, you should be mindful of the factors that can affect the performance or comfort of the chair. If you don't choose wisely, you risk causing discomfort and possible injury while using the chair or carrying out treatments.
7 Reasons You Should Use a Sonkly Company Doctor Chair
The work in a hospital, spa, beauty salon, or laboratory is unlike any work in the average office. It's grueling, requiring intense concentration, and can lead to injuries — not something you'd think of when sitting.
For these reasons, people in these industries should turn to the Sonkly Company doctor chair — developed by a team that understands the physical strain this work can place on your body.
Feel Comfort for Hours
Comfort is paramount when sitting for hours a day, multiple days a week. The chair you choose to use in a hospital, clinic, spa, or beauty salon will determine whether you can maintain productivity.
A typical office chair or receptionist chair may have the same components as a doctor chair (swivel feature, gas lift, and casters), but these chairs are not built for rigorous work and only static office work.
Clinicians, doctors, and technicians who are required to move a lot need a chair that can move with them.
Furthermore, unlike in an office where someone can stand up and take a walk when they're experiencing discomfort in their seats, doctors, clinicians, and beauty salon staff often do work that makes it impossible to move or take a quick walk.
The doctor chair ensures that there won't be any discomfort during those periods.
Your posture determines your productivity and energy levels. Sonkly Company has designed a doctor chair that supports good posture to ensure you maintain your energy throughout the day.
Your posture affects your breathing — allowing you to achieve deeper breaths that improve mental clarity and alertness.
Achieve Perfect Spine Alignment
Spine alignment is necessary to improve your health and well-being and can often cause severe or debilitating back pain. The doctor chair, specifically the one designed and manufactured by Sonkly Company, is built to help your spine align and improve symptoms related to osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, sciatica, and spinal stenosis, among a host of other ailments that can be caused or exacerbated when you sit on the incorrect chair.
Consider what you'll be doing in a doctor chair. When bending or hunched over, your head and neck will often be tilted downward, which can cause strain. Those in the medical field will have this issue — doctors, plastic surgeons, dentists —estheticians, even massage therapists, nail techs, and many other jobs can experience that same strain.
The Sonkly Company doctor chair helps support your upper and lower back, hips, and legs. This ensures you won't strain your body even when doing grueling tasks.
Prevent Aches and Pains
Good posture, improved alignment, and no straining lead to fewer aches and pains. Most people who stay seated for much of their work will begin to experience stiff joints and muscles, sprains, and tension — but since a doctor chair is built to support your back and neck, you reduce your chances of experiencing any aches and pains.
A doctor chair with casters and 360° swivel movement allows you to move freely. These chairs effortlessly glide across the floor without any friction, reducing the risk of injury and without any sound, ensuring you are moving around on them and won't irritate your clients or patients.
Avoid Caregiver Burnout
Those working in clinics, treatment facilities, and spas can experience caregiver burnout.
This phenomenon is reported by 70 percent of all U.S. Caregivers, but the same could be said for any work that requires physical handling of patients or clients, as is common with massage therapists. These chairs have adjustable lifting that ensures you don't have to place strain on your back, neck, shoulders, or legs when dealing with patients and clients of all weights and sizes.
In an industry that requires you to deal with the human body to some degree, carefully considering the equipment and support tools you use will ensure you can work effectively and injury free.
The chair you use is part of those equipment and support tools, supporting the most critical part of your work — your body. With a doctor chair like the one built by Sonkly Company, you can prioritize your physical health and well-being even when sitting in a chair for hours.
