Former Herman Miller director launches ergonomic office furniture company

Ergonomic chairs should support movement and various postures. Desks should be ergonomic as well. The desk and chair from NexPosture should work together as a complete ergonomic system.

SPRING LAKE, Mich. -- NEXposture introduces revolutionary ergonomic office furniture that it said is ideal for any office setting, including remote workers.

Back by certified professional ergonomist Marc Turina, NEXposture delivers a highly customizable sitting experience that redefines ergonomics and comfort, while also reducing the load and pressure on a worker's neck and lumbar spine.

After years of research and prototypes, production on all ergonomic products from NEXposture begins on April 18th. Product offerings include desk converters, standing desks, mobile desks, fixed-height desks and a soft edge desk cushion. All of these products are designed to ensure that the user’s next posture is their best posture.

Keith McRobert, founder of NEXposture, said: “People are designed to move and not to spend a third of their lives in static positions in front of a computer. With the infinitely adjustable NEXposture worksurface, the user can move and adjust throughout the day and gain back the control needed for healthy engagement with computer technology.”

NEXposture’s unique sliding surface extends and retracts over a ten-inch range while declining at a six-degree angle allowing desktop technology to mirror the kinematic motion of the chair and user. Reclined postures allow for nutrients to flow into the intervertebral discs and reduce the load on the lumbar spine. This transfers the upper body weight to the chair, which reduces the force on a person's lower back by as much as 25%.

With NEXposture, people can position their desktop technology in a manner that most effectively supports a full range of comfortable and healthful sitting, from upright to working recline while maintaining exact eye-to-monitor and hand-to-input device distance, no matter the posture. In fact, a 2021 ergonomics research study by the University of Cincinnati found that most home office workstations are incorrectly set up - 69% of people don't lean on the back support of their chairs which adds pressure and load on their neck and spine.
