There are some features of a good office chair that you should definitely look for.
In this article we re going to discuss what to look for when purchasing or thinking of purchasing a chair for the office.
For starters, there is the backrest height. You want to try to find one that will allow the user of the chair to provide maximum support to the lower portion of the back. The height will vary from person to person so that backrest itself must be adjustable.
Then there is the backrest tilt which allows the person using the chair to either recline (lean back) or incline (lean forward) and adopt variable postures in between these two positions. Most people find a slight reclining position to be the most comfortable.
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.
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.
