Firstline Ergonomic Chair for Front Line Environments




Introducing the new Gregory Firstline Chair, designed by the experts in ergonomics. 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 these 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.

Firstline Ergonomic Chair for Front Line Environments Features:

  • The strongly tapered lower seat back and special wide but tapered seat design, all work together to provide freedom of movement and optimal support whilst wearing belt-attached equipment. This also has a significant benefit of increasing the life of the chair and its fabric by reducing or eliminating abrasion points
  • Lumbar and integrated spine support bar provides additional shoulder spacing for ease of movement
  • Gregory’s famous dual density seat is newly designed for improved hygiene in medical support
