How effective is an ergonomic chair?

The term 'ergonomic' implies science, as in the science of people and what it takes to make them comfortable. And ergonomics aims to do just that. Its emphasis on ordinary objects such as desk chairs for office use is attuned to human habits. Most of us who have "desk jobs" are already aware of the dangers of prolonged sitting for 8 hours straight.

There are many other features that make ergonomic chairs beneficial for both health and productivity: such as being able to move the seat up or down depending on workstation requirements; adjustability in terms of height, width, tilt tension knob (for reclining), armrest adjustment levers (also for different heights); sturdy construction materials that promote longevity without sacrificing comfort--all these qualities ensure no matter how long you're sitting there working.

Think of the promotion in clothing size due to weight gain and that should be enough to warrant healthy concern. The early onset of heart disease is one unhealthy benefit you definitely don't want.

Plus lack of physical movement for 30 minutes or greater leads to symptoms of depression and other mental disorders.

But to think of the back problems which result from prolonged sitting should be just enough to get us out of the chair and walking.

Sometimes taking short stretch breaks or walking around your office a bit may help alleviate some of your worries. But when you're fully engrossed in a task or project, these minor acts of self-care are easily forgotten. Investing in a quality chair that supports your back is a better solution.

 

Where should lumbar support be placed on a chair?

One of the most important aspects is lumbar support, which should be positioned at a height that keeps your back straight. It's also advisable to have armrests with an adjustable length so you can tailor them to suit your individual needs and body type.

 

How high should the back of your office chair be?

The back of the chair should be at a height that allows your arms to rest on the armrests and keeps you in an upright sitting position; it also shouldn't feel too high or low. The higher up you go, however, the more likely it is for air circulation to become an issue; so if there's one with a mesh seat then this might not apply as much.

 

How do I know what type of office chair will work best for me?

It seems like when people are shopping around they want something cheap but durable - they're either trying to save money or avoid buying new things altogether. In reality, we've found that the quality determines how long any product lasts aka saves us money in the long term.

And with today's office environment, this might be possible. Sometimes taking short stretch breaks or walking around your office a bit may help alleviate some of your worries.

But when you're fully engrossed in a task or project, these minor acts of self-care are easily forgotten. Investing in a quality chair that supports your back is a better solution.

 

What are the recommended seating adjustments?

The recommended seating adjustments are to adjust the height of your chair, make sure you're sitting in a comfortable position with good posture. It's also important to not sit too low or too high.

 

What is the recommended height for lumbar support on ergonomic chairs?

Generally speaking, we recommend that customers measure from their waistline up to about an inch above their iliac crest (bony protrusion at top of hip bones) then add one inch. If this measurement falls between 18 and 23 inches, they should consider purchasing a 20-inch tall chair since it will provide an optimal balance between comfort and having enough space under them as well as keeping pressure off hips while seated.

 

What is the recommended height for lumbar support on ergonomic chairs?

A good ergonomic chair isn't one size fits all. In fact, ergonomic chairs are best when they are designed to be adjusted for personal height. If your chair was bought for more than just you, then you should become familiar with ways to adjust it. Since most desks cannot be adjusted, having an ergonomic chair that can is extended important.

Generally speaking, we recommend customers measure from their waistline up to about an inch above their ilium crest then add one inch if they're between 18-23 inches tall. If their height is between 23-28 inches, they should purchase a 25-inch tall chair to provide the best balance.

In both of these cases, we recommend that customers compare this measurement with the seat depth on ergonomic chairs and make sure there's enough room when seated at it.
