Ergonomic Benefits of Wireless Headsets


From office chairs to telephone headsets, ergonomics is prevalent. Nevertheless, you might be wondering how wireless headsets can bring users a variety of benefits that improve workplace wellness. So what are the main perks of using a wireless headset?

BETTER MOVEMENT

Using a wireless headset as part of your daily work routine will help improve your posture by freeing you to move and sit more naturally. It eliminates the need to hold the telephone in an uncomfortable position and provides the freedom to roam which results in 35% less muscle tension than handset users.

REDUCES STRAIN

Neck and upper back muscle tension are one of the most common ailments of office workers. Results from a commissioned study conducted at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose, CA, provide strong evidence that office workers can reduce neck, shoulder and upper back muscle tension as much as 41% by using a headset. That is a significant improvement for just wearing a headset! 

 

INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY

An additional study by H.B. Maynard & Co., Inc. concluded that adding hands-free headsets to office telephones improved productivity and efficiency by up to 43 percent. By making your workstation more comfortable and freeing up your hands for other tasks, you’ll find that you can get more work done each day.

A wireless headset will also enable you to remain productive from home or out of the office.

SOUND QUALITY

With the proper microphone placement (1-2 finger widths from the corner of your mouth) wireless headsets have reinvented sound and speech perception. A lot of headsets now have noise-cancelling options that detect and analyze the pattern of incoming sound which generates an “anti-noise” mirror signal to cancel it out for clear conversations. As a result, headsets give users a better sound experience that is personalized to their individual needs and reciprocated on the other end. 

REDUCES WORKPLACE INJURIES

It’s impressive to see the difference a headset can make for the end users. A Swedish field study analyzed a hundred people and showed that for 26% of respondents, neck and back pains “totally disappeared” and for 52% of respondents, inconvenience “diminished significantly” after they started using a headset. It is clear that headsets reduce the chances of work-related physical disorders which also results in reduced workers’ compensation cost! 

 

This new evidence confirms that headsets are a cost-effective, preventative solution for the whole company! 

 

The Benefits of Using a Headset


Whether you working in a customer service role or not, phone calls may still be a big part of your workday. Adding a headset to your repertoire of workplace tools could help boost your phone conversations.

Free Up Your Hands

Need to be typing/browsing something? Jotting down notes? Handheld devices can limit your ability to note down information. Flipping between hands, using your shoulder as support – all posture killers. Alternatively, a headset frees up your hands to perform tasks without limiting your ability to pay attention and participate on the phone call.

Mobility

We’ve been talking about the importance of sitting AND standing during the workday. Well if you have a long phone call scheduled a headset allows you to stand up and stretch your muscles. If you’re using a wireless set you could even move around to increase blood flow!

Multi-Device Compatibility

Have to switch between Skype on your laptop to your mobile device for calls? Easy to do with a headset – whether wired or wireless, making the connection is a seamless process that give flexibility in managing multiple device calls.
