When you’re at work, you probably spend the majority of it in your chair. This means that if it isn’t high-quality, you’ll be spending a large part of your day in discomfort. While sitting for too long in even the most comfortable chair can have some negative effects, it’s important to know which components make up a good chair. Here are some things to keep in mind when you’re looking for a good chair.
A chair’s back is one of its most important features because it is responsible for lumbar support. When your chair has poor lumbar support, you’ll likely notice issues with your posture as well as neck problems. An ergonomic office chair with a high back and proper neck support will work wonders for you. Whichever chair you choose, make sure that it has a cushioned back that promotes good posture. Your neck and back will thank you for it!
Sitting in a chair with an inadequate seat can also lead to some issues. Make sure that your seat is wide enough for you and that it’s supportive as well. A chair that has a poor seat can negatively affect your posture. If it’s too soft, you’ll sink into your chair and if it’s too firm, it’ll be very uncomfortable to sit in. Ensure your seat has a good mixture of softness and firmness for the best results.
The arms of an office chair are often overlooked, but they can play a role in making your chair more comfortable. You don’t necessarily need arms on your office chair to make it comfortable, so keep that in mind. In fact, you could opt for an office chair without arms to allow yourself more room to move your arms. You could also get a chair that does have arms for additional support. If your chair does have arms, you should make sure that its arms are adjustable. This will offer you more freedom to choose the best arm height for you.
