Prevent DVT or Blood Clot: Choose Good Office Furniture

DVT or Deep Vain Thrombosis is dubbed as e-thrombosis because of its prevalence among the working sector. It is a condition of blood clotting that can be developed when one is sitting for prolonged periods of time. It impedes normal blood circulation, thus causing a clot of blood which can be fatal if it reaches the vital organs of the body like the brain.

Since office trend nowadays meant a sedentary lifestyle, where the norm makes people sit in front of their computers all day, DVT becomes more threatening to this office generation.

As they say, prevention is still better than cure. Here are some ways to prevent blood clotting in the office, or DVT:

? Invest in good office furniture. Choose ergonomically-designed chairs, and other office furniture meant for seating. Ergonomic chairs allow proper blood circulation, back support, and arm rest.


? Take a break once in a while. Do not work too hard that it can risk your health. Try taking a break and walk around the office, or even in your building. This helps bring circulation back to normal. You can also try standing up and stretching.

? Drink water. Add fluid to your body to help blood circulation. Water regulates the flow of fluids inside your body, thus preventing blood clot.

DVT is not a dreadful disorder, unless you refuse to prevent it from happening to you. You can be a more productive worker when you take the DVT threat more seriously and start caring for your health. Start by choosing good office furniture.
