04 Jun 4 Tips for Selecting the Perfect Office Chair for You
The office chair. Nothing is more important than ensuring what you sit in all day is comfortable and ergonomically sound. With so many chairs on the market, how can you know you are getting the one that works best for you? When shopping, consider the following:
Not all office chairs are created equally. If you want to feel supported, a fully-adjustable chair is the way to go. That way, you can adjust the chair height, the backrest, the armrests, and the seat depth to ensure your body remains safely in a neutral position.
The backrest should include a curve intended to support your lower back and prevent strain. The lumbar support will position your lower back in a slight curve and prevent you from slouching. Make sure the lumbar is adjustable to ensure a proper fit.
For those who sit most of the day, it’s important to move your body. Selecting a chair that encourages movement will increase the amount you move throughout your day. A chair with swivel or castors will give you even more freedom from your desk.
Breathable material is a must and that’s why we sell so many chairs with cloth fabric. If the fabric doesn’t breathe, you can become hot and sweaty after extended periods of time. You will also want to make sure that the chair has enough cushion to make long days comfortable.
The good news is that there is a chair out there for you. Put in the time to research and try out several before making a purchase. Your body will thank you!
