Improved Human Performance ergonomic The BMA Difference
Providing your workforce with ergonomically correct seating is vital to maintaining and improving productivity and employee health and wellbeing.

The human form was simply not designed to sit in the same position for extended time-frames, and the associated issues from poor posture can have serious effects for employees and company owners.

Studies have shown that static sitting at a workstation conducting day to day tasks for prolonged periods of time is a major cause of multiple ailments within the modern office.

Choosing the right ergonomic task chair will improve postural awareness and encourage users to adopt better working habits.

Investment in seating that promotes a better interaction with the immediate environment has a proven, dramatic effect on employee comfort, and, ultimately, productivity.

The portfolio of products that we manufacture is specifically designed to provoke wellbeing within the workplace, and the ergonomic philosophy we conceived can bring tangible improvements to user contentment.

  Ergonomics is the fundamental cornerstone that BMA was founded on. As the brainchild of a Physiotherapist and a Mechanical Engineer, BMA have consistently pioneered revolutionary concepts on improving the interaction a user has with their working environment.

We have designed our seating to focus on supporting the Pelvis, rather than Lumbar region, and developed a patented split–seat mechanism that translates our advanced theory into practice. This pelvic centred methodology offers the very best ergonomic support to users whilst they conduct daily tasks at the workstation.

Our Axia range addresses issues associated with the multiple postures and angles of view experienced by every user. By providing comprehensive reinforcement to critical anatomical locations on the body which in turn encourages a constant, ergonomically correct relationship with the workstation.

We advocate implementing this strategy as a pro-active approach to workplace ergonomics to act as a preventative methodology to muscular skeletal disorders. It is always preferable to minimise the chances of developing pain and discomfort if at all possible.

However, our Axia range of seating can also improve existing ailments by offering the correct support to the body. Being a completely modular system, further comfort and support can be enhanced by selecting from numerous options to fit the user’s specific requirements.

As a testament to our products capabilities, the Axia range has achieved the prestigious FIRA ‘Ergonomics Excellence’ award year on year since 2001.
