Working in an office typically involves spending a great deal of time sitting in an office chair - a position that adds stress to the structures in the spine. Therefore, to avoid developing or compounding back problems, it's important to have an office chair that's ergonomic and that supports the lower back and promotes good posture.Ergonomic office furniture is designed with the worker's body in mind in an attempt to reduce worker injury. Whether you want to supply ergonomic chairs throughout your office or you just want one for yourself at home, comfort is key. Select an ergonomic chair that works with the body, not against it, to reduce injuries associated with sitting too long in an uncomfortable position.But how do you judge that your chair is comfortable to sit on?
●Head and Neck
To prevent neck muscles stiffening a head rest should be employed where possible.
The shape of the chair should allow the “S” shape of the spinal column to form naturally and be supported. A comfortable back rest will prevent slumping and reduce stress on the spine and pelvis.
The angle between the thighs and the torso should be between 90-105 degrees.The back of the seat should be slightly raised to support the pelvis from tipping backwards and reduce pelvic stress.
Torsion control allows you to adjust the tension of the tilt to suit your body weight.
The top of your monitor should be the same height as your eye level.
The arm rests should support the forearms. The height of the arm rest should allow the shoulders and elbows to be relaxed.
The length and width of the thigh should be fully supported with the thigh running parallel to the floor.
The seat cushion should be rounded downwards in a “waterfall” shape,allowing the legs freedom of movement.
Feet should easily and comfortably rest flat on the floor.
If your chair meets the above requirements, then it is a good chair for you.
