How to Find the Right Ergonomic Chair for You

While you’re at work, your office chair is probably the last thing on your mind. However, selecting the right  ergonomic chair for your work space can make a substantial difference in your comfort and health.  

Comfort is especially important. The average office employee can spend up to 15 hours a day sitting - collectively from driving, working, and lounging at home. Eventually, all of which may take a toll on your well being. 

A good ergonomic chair should remedy that by helping to reduce chronic back, hip, and leg strain associated  with being seated for long periods of time, as well as help with your posture.  

With so many options out there, how do you know how to make the best choice for you? We’re here to help.  

When shopping for the right fit for you, ask yourself these questions: 

Is the chair adjustable?  

When looking at the functionality of an ergonomic chair, the chair’s seat should be fully adjustable to  accommodate height and comfortability preferences. Your feet should also be able to rest on the floor while  your knees are bent at a ninety degree angle. 

What material is the chair made of? 

Typically, you spend at least 8 hours sitting at your desk, 5 day a week. During those 40 hours, you aren’t going  to want to sit on a chair that feels abrasive, itchy, or made of something that may cause your body to  overheat. A good chair will be made of breathable and lightweight material.  

How is your chair supporting you? 

Support is important. A proper ergonomic chair will offer full upper and middle back support. When sitting for  a long period of time, you should look for a chair that can support a person’s natural shape – which can  prevent strain or injury.
