Here are 4 points which will help to choose the right ergonomic office chair
Here are points which will help you understand about the things to look into while getting educated about choosing the right ergonomic office chair, and you will be able to decide when in front of a few options to choose from.
A) Evaluating the Chair’s Adjustment Capabilities:
Make sure that the seat height (from the floor level), the tilt of the backrest, height of the armrests (from the seat level) of the chair can be individually adjusted. A good ergonomic chair will allow you to adjust each part of the chair by itself. You should be able to move the armrests, seat and back supports independently of each other. This level of customization will allow you to make the chair a good fit for anyone that might end up using it.
1. You may want to avoid chairs that don’t allow for adjustments.
2. Generally, you will want to select chairs that have many adjustable features.
B) Evaluating the Chair’s Back Support:
Proper ergonomic chairs will offer full upper and middle back support. If you are going to be sitting for a long period of time, supporting your back and its natural shape will be important in preventing injury or strain. The backrest should be between 12” and 19” wide.
1. Your chair’s backrest should support the natural curve and shape of your back.
2. Most backrests will be adjustable to support the contours of your back.
C) Evaluating the Chair’s Seat:
1. Make sure the seat is the right size for you. The seat should be about an inch wider than your hips.
2. The seat pan should be positioned just behind your knees.
3. Check the padding of the seat and quality of foam used.
D) Finalizing Your Choice:
1. Although you can learn a lot about a chair from reading its specifications, by sitting in a chair, you will be able to directly feel how comfortable it is and learn how much of it can be really adjusted to your needs.
2. With so much to consider, some aspects of the chair may get overlooked. We thought about suggesting some areas of the chair to look at to help you finalize your choice
● Chair base should have five spokes.
● The chair’s casters (wheels) should move easily and freely.
● If the chair comes with a headrest, make sure it’s a good fit for your body type.
● You’ll want to have the best chair covering. Vinyl coverings can be easy to clean but don’t breathe well. Cloth seat covers can allow for airflow but may be tougher to keep clean.
