There are a number of different types of ergonomic chairs available on the market that come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. For today, we'll focus on 1, 2, and 3-lever chairs that put a premium on providing a variety of configuration options. All of them are fairly similar, except when it comes to how they can tilt and shift to accommodate the user. For instance, a 1-lever chair allows you to raise or lower the seat level as needed. 2-lever chairs add the ability to adjust the angle of the backrest. Finally, 3-lever chairs give you the option of tilting the seat itself for maximum comfort.
Once you have your budget figured out, it is essential to identify the key ergonomic features you will want in your office chair. Some features you maybe looking for are the overall height of the chair, the shape and contour of the back rest, the type of arm rests and whether the chair swivels or is fixed in place. Other features you may want to think about including in your search are ergonomic functions such as seat height, back height, knee tilt, movable arm rests, a seat slider, a ratchet back, and built in lumbar support. You will also need to consider the nature of your work; do you work in a call center sitting in a chair 12 hours a day or do you work from home 3-4 hours a day? You will also need to factor in your height and your weight, if you are under 5'3" you may want to opt for a petite office chair in order to fit your body or conversely if you are 6'4" you will want to look into a big and tall chair to support you. Your chair will need to fit into your pre-exisitng color scheme where you will be using it, so look into similar chair colors as what you already have going on.
In this world where just everyone seems to be in a constant state of tension and stress, it is important that we take care of ourselves where it matters. We can admit to ourselves that the reason why we are constantly stressed is likely to be the hectic schedules in our busy careers. True, true. But then, have you ever thought of how your office chair affects you?
Having the right back height for your office chair can be of particular importance for those who suffer from back pain and even for those who want to avoid back pain. A good way to determine the back height that will be needed for your chair is to look at your current office chair. If you currently suffer from upper back you will want to look for a chair that's back will come up high enough to support your shoulder blades. Have a friend measure your back in its entirety from the top of the seat on your current office chair up to your shoulder blades to calculate how tall you will need your back rest to be.
