This is a fact that working in an office always spending a great time to sit in an office chair, it increases stress to the structures in the spinal column. To avoid increasing backbones problems, have an ergonomic office chair that support good posture and promotes the lower back is the key.
There are many types of ergonomic chairs available for use in your office. No one type of ergonomic office chair is surely the best, but there are some things that are very important to look for in a good ergonomic office chair. These things will allow the user to make the office chair work well for her or his specific needs. This article will review the traditional office chair, as well as alternatives that can be used as an office chair that may be better for some people with backbones problems.
Here are a number of things an ergonomic office chair should have, including:
- The Seat Height: you should measure height from the floor to the fold at the back of the marrow bones. Make sure you know the difference of footwear and heel heights. It is recommend to use 15 to 21 inch range.
- The Seat Depth: While you seated, measure the distance from the back of marrow bones to the backrest. The back of the marrow bones is sensitive to pressure and shouldn’t come into contact with the seat’s side. You should be able to adjust 2 to 3 fingers between the seat and the back of the marrow bones. We recommend a seat slider with an adjustable range of 15 to 20 inch to fine-tune depth.
- The Seat Width: The seat pincushion shouldn’t be less than 18 inch. Look at the distance between armrests to make sure they aren’t too wide (reaching to use armrests) or cramped (not able to sit).
- Support for Back: Yous should fit the the shape of the backrest with the natural curves of your back. Look for distance space at the butt, padding molded outwards in the mid-lumbar region to support the low back and distance to allow for stunted shoulder movements. Lumbar padding should be height adjustable from 6 to 10 inch. Backrest height should be at least 18 inch. Width should be at least 14inch.
- Support for Arm: Armrests will support the shoulder and neck muscles; they may limit access to the keyboard or a section of your office desk. Armrests should be set back from the front side of the seat, and not strengthen arm movement or access to the workstation.One of the most common problems is that the armrests don’t go low enough.
The right ergonomic office chairs should be support the body, allow for easy movement, help maintaining neutral postures, and provide long term comfort. Comfortable office chairs come in many different size and shape. Choosing the ergonomic office chair can be a challenge at the best of time.
