“Our staff loved the chair… comfortable chair over long sitting periods and very supportive back… I don’t think they want to give it back” ~ Queensland Police Service
Gregory’s Firstline Chair has been developed in conjunction with Police and Emergency Services to provide an ergonomic chair that truly works for the front line workforce’s unique needs.
Front line staff can be particularly hard on office seating and normal office chairs simply do not cut it. These chairs are used 24/7 and need to support first line workers for long-term seated periods. Regular office chairs are not designed for this level of support.
Regular office chairs are damaged quickly in heavy use front line service environments because they have not been designed to accommodate for all the abrasion from belt-worn equipment. Comfort for the front line user is also compromised due to equipment belts impacting their seated position on the chair. Instead of being seated with their pelvis and lumbar in the correct position to the back of the chair, front line staff who use regular office chairs are forced to adopt a more forward posture. This critically impacts the ability of the user to use their chair to its full ergonomic potential in order to support them while seated and protect them from sedentary related back, neck and shoulder injuries.
Finally, Gregory Commercial Furniture, Australia’s leading ergonomic seating manufacturer, has created a solution. For 30 years Gregory Commercial Furniture has made what Physiotherapists recognise as the best in workplace seating. Gregory has a specialised solution to accommodate for the unique seating needs of the front line workforce. Firstline has been developed through rigorous consultation with Police, Emergency Service Agencies and Security Companies. There is no better ergonomic chair for front line staff.
