Look at the Manufacturer Warranty - Almost every office chair comes with a manufacturer warranty, and if they do not it is probably not worth your investment. It is crucial to read each manufacturer's warranty to determine if the chair of interest will be a worthwhile purchase. Find out what parts are warranted and for how long each component of the chair is warranted for. You can tell a lot by a manufacturer's warranty; if their parts are warranted for 10 years or have a lifetime warranty, this shows they are that confident in their product and construction of their chair that they are willing to take the risk of extending the warranty for multiple years. Remember when a part breaks on your office chair, that comes out of the manufacturer's funds to have to replace it which is why some warranties are very limited. It is important to keep in mind that all manufacturer's will warrant their seat fabrics for less time than their components, which is standard with everyone because this is the first part of all chairs to fade with time due to how often it gets rubbed/used. If you want to make certain that the fabric on your chair will not fade over time, try looking for a chair that has a higher grade fabric as an option or opt for a vinyl/leather chair that tolerate a bit more use and abuse than fabric chairs.
The ability to fine-tune a chair's position via a number of different levers offers many benefits to the user of an ergonomic chair, some of which are fairly obvious and some of which are less so. For one thing, an ergonomic 2 or 3-lever chair allows you to adjust your seat to provide the best support possible. Furthermore, ergonomic chairs for offices can help prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome by allowing you to position yourself comfortably for long typing sessions at your desk. Firm but comfortable office chairs are better for your spine and posture, and can prevent back-related injuries later on.
