Factors to Consider When Shopping for the Right Ergonomic Chair

From function to aesthetics, the following are among the first things you need to check when deciding on an office chair:

Lumbar Support

This pertains to the capability of the chair to support your back and body in whatever sitting position. When shopping, look for a chair with adjustable lumbar support, one that will help maintain the natural curve of your lower spine to reduce the risk of lower back pain. Ensure the lumbar support can be easily adjusted in terms of height and choose a chair with a wider tilt angle adjustment to give you more options in terms of sitting position and comfort.

Seat Height Adjustment

Most ergonomic chairs are equipped with a pneumatic height adjustment feature to allow you to set the chair's height to a level that ensures your feet are flat on the floor, with your knees at a 90-degree angle. Apart from checking this, ensure that the chair makes adjustment easy from a sitting position.

Armrest and Headrest

In terms of these two, adjustment is the key element to check—both should be readily and easily adjustable to provide sufficient support for your arms and head, neck, and shoulders. For the armrest, there is an option to get the 4D design. This can provide even more flexibility to move while you are seated.

Seat Depth and Width

This is primarily concerned with ensuring that the chair will match your body type. The chair must be wide enough to offer full support, especially to bigger users. Apart from this, the padding must be sufficient and able to support your buttocks and thighs. For optimum comfort, choose a material that is breathable and will remain comfortable no matter how long you are seated.

Seat Material

The most common options for seat material are mesh and leather. Mesh is preferred for comfort—it’s breathable, lighter, and more minimalist in style. Meanwhile, leather is preferred for the premium executive look that it provides any space.
