Ergonomic Office Chair
Sitting in static posture for prolonged periods of time can increase the stress in the back, neck, arms and legs, and add a great amount of pressure to the back muscles and spinal discs. Ergonomic chairs reduce back pain. Proper neutral seating in a well-constructed chair can help reduce fatigue and discomfort, and prevent the risk of injury, and increase productivity. Let your body take the correct ergonomic position. That means your knees and elbows should be at an angle of 90 degrees with your feet flat on the floor or a footrest. The chair should also provide good lumbar support for the lower back. Alan Hedge, from Cornell University, says: "More than 90 percent of a company's costs are people costs, so making small investments in improving the workplace - like very good chairs - pays huge dividends."

The purpose of having a proper ergonomic office chair is to provide crucial back, shoulder, and leg support to the user. Awkward sitting postures are a major contributor to musculoskeletal disorders, back pain, shoulder pain, and can cause poor circulation in the legs without the proper support. Poor sitting positions also influence fatigue, poor concentration, and overall health issues, causing drops in productivity, time spent at work, and can hinder inspiration.
When evaluating an ergonomic office chair one should think of four easy tips.
- The backrest should conform to the natural curvature of the spine, providing adequate and stable support to the lumbar region.
- The height and dimensions of the seat should allow the feet to rest flat on the floor or footrest.
- The chair’s armrests should be padded, or soft, with an adjustable height to allow any user’s shoulders to be rested comfortably while in a working posture. Elbows should rest comfortably at the side of the body, and forearms and wrists should be rested parallel, with a slight tilt, to the lap.
- The ergonomic office chair should have a five-leg base with casters to allow easy movement across the floor.
