What To Look for in an Ergonomic Desk Chair
There are decent office chairs, and then there are great office chairs, but how do you know the difference?
Let’s break down the most important features of an ergonomic desk chair:
- Adjustable Height and Adjustable Armrests Adjustable seat height and armrests are critical for resting in an ideal sitting position. Armrests and an Adjustable headrest should place your body in a relaxed upright position. The wrists should center comfortably on the same level as the desk or slightly below the elbows. Correct chair height should position feet flat on the floor or on a footrest if you choose.
- Lower Back Support or Adjustable Lumbar Support Built-in lumbar Support is a key component to back Health, yet one study of at-home workers reflected 73% of home office chairs lacked lumbar Support. Your body type, how much back Support you require, and your preferences all play a role in the amount of lumbar Support you need. This is why we offer various options for lumbar Support in our chair models.
Here’s a summary of the lumbar Support for our various chair options:
- Recline Functionality Tilt and tension settings allow you to recline in your chair while maintaining your body’s natural position and curvature of your spine. Ergonomic chairs are designed with this in mind because nobody expects you stay in the same position all day long. So, when you do switch up your position, you’ll feel confident (and Comfortable) that you’re being supported.
- Breathable Mesh Chair Components Breathable mesh components provide ventilation to keep you cool and relaxed in your chair — a great feature if you live in an area with high temperatures (or if you simply are at your desk for hours at a time).
