As we bid farewell to the challenges of the past year and step into a new one, many of us are still adjusting to the remote work lifestyle. The shift to working from home has brought about its own set of challenges, one of the most noticeable being the impact on our bodies. From poor posture to low blood circulation, the tales of discomfort are plentiful, often depicted humorously as the “Hunchback of Work From Home.”

However, there is a beacon of hope in the form of BodyBilt’s custom ergonomic office chairs. These chairs are designed not only to prevent the “Hunchback” scenario but also to provide unparalleled comfort and support tailored to your individual needs and body measurements. At BodyBilt, they firmly believe in the mantra that “one size does NOT fit all.”

Customization for a Lifetime

What sets BodyBilt apart is its commitment to crafting chairs that stand the test of time. With a guaranteed service for the life of the chair, which typically lasts 25+ years, these chairs adapt to your changing needs and body over the years. Whether it’s accommodating pregnancy, weight differences, injuries, or any other changes, each part of the chair is fully customizable to ensure ergonomic support at all times.

And here’s the kicker – these chairs aren’t built until an order is placed. As a sustainable company proudly “Made In America,” BodyBilt emphasizes a build-to-order approach, reducing waste and ensuring that each chair is crafted with precision and care.

Health Benefits Beyond Comfort

The perks of using a BodyBilt chair extend beyond just comfort. Extended use of these chairs has been associated with improved blood flow, digestion, and breathing. Moreover, they contribute to the prevention of headaches and stress injuries, making them an investment in your long-term well-being.

The Source recently had the privilege of speaking with BodyBilt executives to gain more insight into this groundbreaking company.

What inspired the idea to create BodyBilt?

In the late 1980s, BodyBilt delved into a NASA-commissioned study titled The Anthropometric Source Book. This study led to the design of chairs based on the natural position the human body assumes while asleep in a weightless environment. The key takeaway was the “open” angle between the torso and thighs, approximately 110 degrees. The first BodyBilt product line, launched in 1991, featured a minimum of 10 different adjustments to help users emulate this ideal posture. Since then, BodyBilt has consistently used ergonomic studies and advancements to evolve and innovate products for various settings.

What are some of the illnesses that BodyBilt chairs can prevent?

BodyBilt chairs are designed to prevent a range of injuries, including reducing workplace fatigue, improving spinal support and blood flow, reducing joint pain, and mitigating carpal tunnel syndrome through a combination of correct chair arms and ergonomic desk solutions.

How long does it take to create these custom chairs?

Depending on the products, the creation process can range from one day to 21 days, considering factors such as fabric selection and custom models. Most chairs, however, can be shipped within 5-7 business days.

How does BodyBilt differ from the average office chair?

BodyBilt stands out as a modular furniture product, capable of building the same style of chair for various body types. These chairs can support individuals up to 800 lbs, and each one is hand-built in their factory in Navasota, Texas. BodyBilt’s commitment to innovation is evident in the introduction of new technologies like SKYDEX, which helps mitigate weighted seat pressure and boasts 10 times the lifespan of traditional foam inserts.

As we embark on a new year, consider investing in a chair that not only supports your work but also prioritizes your well-being. I had the pleasure of testing out the Midcell 2800 Series – Mesh Back (Midback) chair and it instantly improved my back pain and posture. BodyBilt’s ergonomic chairs redefine the standards of office seating, ensuring you start the year on a healthy and comfortable note.
