With the amount of sitting most of us do in a typical workday, a comfortable, good quality office chair is one of the most important investments you can make in your health and wellbeing.
Choosing a well-designed office chair will help you avoid poor sitting posture that research shows can cause acute and chronic back and neck pain, headaches, tiredness and impaired focus.
When you’re shopping for a quality office chair, here are the most important things to look for:
- Ergonomic design - an ergonomically designed chair should be comfortable, but more importantly, support a natural, healthy posture with adequate lower back support. The design should also allow you to interact easily and comfortably with your particular work space.
- Correct seat height – your office chair needs to be the right height for you to sit and work comfortably at your desk without scrunching up your shoulders. Your feet should also be flat on the floor, or you can use a foot support if your desk is a little high.
- Comfortable seat width & depth – the seat of the chair should be wide enough for you to fit comfortably and naturally rest your arms on the armrests (if present). Ensure the seat is not too deep—your knees should easily extend over the edge, allowing a slight angle so that your knees are lower than your hips.
