In this article we re going to discuss what to look for when purchasing or thinking of purchasing a chair for the office.
As for armrests, they should not interfere with the work that needs to be done but should be comfortable and provide support for the arms. In general if wide movement is needed armrests should be avoided.
The first thing that is very important is a backrest adjustment. A backrest adjustment can prevent or at least help lessen the discomfort that happens when sitting for long periods of time. There are some things about the backrest that you should look for.
Then there is the backrest horizontal movement or the ability to move backward and forward. This is not the same as the tilt feature. This is a feature that actually either increases or decreases the distance between the back of the chair and the seat of the chair. Not all chairs have this feature and while it may cost more it is something to consider as it will provide further comfort on an individual basis.
Then we have the seat pan characteristics. You should look for seats that have the following characteristics. The seat pan should have adequate depth and width. The material should be comfortable but offer sufficient support and the seat pan should tilt to alleviate pressure on the back of the thighs.
If youre looking to buy an office chair, you want to make sure you make your decision is based on some important factors. Most likely if you are purchasing an office chair it is either for yourself or your employees. In either case you want to make sure the chair is comfortable and safe. You and your workers are going to be sitting in these for 8 hours a day. You don't want the sitting experience to turn into a nightmare. Work is hard enough.
