Cramming Without Back Problems – The Right Workplace For The Little Ones

When school starts for their offspring, they will spend a lot of time at their desks. Parents can think about their children’s work furniture in good time before they start school: After all, the wrong furniture often causes additional strain on the offspring. Unfortunately, school furniture in German schools is often not adapted to the needs of children. But at home, you can do it right. Careful selection of desk and chair will prevent back problems and posture damage later on.

The Right Desk

The desk base needs to accommodate the ABC shooter, not the other way around. The desk top should be adjustable so that the child does not have to bend over the desk. In this way, the arms can be placed comfortably and the offspring can support themselves. This prevents poor posture and the back muscles do not tire as quickly. It also makes sense if the inclination of the worktop can be changed. Both the desk and the chair usually accompany the child throughout his or her school years. Therefore, both should be infinitely height-adjustable. When adjusting the furniture, the height of the child is decisive: the child sits best at the desk when the thighs form a horizontal line and the lower legs a vertical line. The soles of the feet must be flat on the floor. With the body in an upright position, the forearms rest horizontally on the tabletop. This takes the strain off the spine. The correct height setting of the desk and chair must be checked at certain intervals and adjusted according to growth. When buying the desk, keep in mind that sooner or later every child will work with a computer. It is advisable to choose a work surface that can accommodate PC components in addition to books and writing utensils. But even better is a suitable PC desk. Desks that “grow with you” can accompany your child throughout the school years.

An Ergonomic Desk Chair

The right chair belongs to the right desk. A chair is optimal when you automatically sit properly on it. Therefore, with a child, a variable adjustment of the seat height and backrest is necessary. When buying the chair, parents should make sure that it remains stable and tilt-resistant even at the highest seat setting. The backrest should be flexible enough to support the pelvis even in a forward-leaning sitting position. In addition, a backrest that is as anatomically shaped as possible provides support for the spine. Chairs with a rocking option also ensure regular loading and unloading of the back muscles and prevent rapid fatigue. The chair should also allow enough freedom of movement and must not impose a rigid sitting posture on the offspring.

Quality Seals To Help With The Purchase

Safety when buying furniture is guaranteed by quality seals such as the Blue Angel, the golden “M” of the German Furniture Association and the GS mark for “tested safety”. Parents should definitely pay attention to these signs when choosing the right work furniture.
