There are many types of ergonomic chairs available for use in the office. No one type of office chair is necessarily the best, but there are some things that are very important to look for in a good ergonomic office chair. These things will allow the individual user to make the chair work well for his or her specific needs.

The following list will help you understand the features of an ergonomic chair better:

1. Seat height

The optimal seat height should allow you to place your feet flat on the floor, which is why choosing a chair with an adjustable seat height is essential. What’s more, with most work desks remaining at a fixed height, it is important that the seat height can be altered. A seat height that ranges from 16 to 21 inches off the floor should work for most people.

2. Seat width and depth

Proper seat depth should leave between 2 and 4 inches between the edge of the seat and the back of your knees. If the seat is too far forward, it may put undue pressure on the back of the knees.

3. Seat tilt

Good ergonomic chairs will allow the seat to tilt, which allows for the correct positioning of the pelvis. The anterior pelvic tilt is a posture problem that affects almost everyone who sits a lot, which is why it’s important to keep the pelvis in a neutral position when sitting, with 80-degree angles at the hips, knees, and ankles.

4. Backrest Lumbar support

This refers to the support given to your lower back and is an essential feature of an ergonomic chair. Ergonomic chairs support the natural ‘S’ shape of the spine, which prevents slumping and reduces stress on the spine and the pelvis. An adjustable backrest allows users to align the curve in the chair with the curve in their spine, for optimal support.

5. Backrest recline

An adjustable backrest allows for greater tailored positioning for the user, as they can move the backrest to support their natural spine position. Using this feature throughout the day allows the backrest to take some of the weight from your upper body, reducing the pressure on your spinal disks and muscles.

6. Swivel

The swivel in an ergonomic chair helps users with their maneuverability, making it easier to reach different points of their desks without having to strain excessively.

7. Armrests

Armrests help to reduce tension in the upper body and allow the shoulders to relax. However, armrests should not be used when typing as this reduces overall arm movement, which in turn increases wrist movement leading to strain on the forearm muscles.

8. Headrest

Supports the back of the head and the upper neck, reducing tension in the shoulders and upper torso.

9. Materials

A good ergonomic chair is made out of comfortable breathable materials like high-quality nylon mesh. The material should not cause the user’s back to sweat. However, the materials used will depend on the budget; high-end ergonomic chairs may use PU leather or velvet.

10. Wheels

If your chair will be used on a hard surface, find a chair with soft rubber wheels. If your workplace/home office is carpeted, opt for hard wheels to help you navigate better.

Additional Considerations

When choosing your ergonomic office chair, you should also consider how long you will be sitting in it each and every day, as the longer you are planning on using the chair, the more adjustable options you’ll want to consider.
