Don’t sit on your stool – you need the right tool

We have been sent some useful tips by furniture manufacturer Sedus on how to sit properly in a chair.

Some people, the company informs us, are happy sitting on an orange crate or a simple stool. Are they really? But, it warns us, ‘For your professional work you need effective tools.’ An angle grinder, perhaps? Or a power drill? No. A good office chair, of course. But that on its own will not suffice, apparently. It needs to be adjusted properly.
