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.
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.
When purchasing an office chair, the first thing you want to get, if possible, is a trial period. Many distributors will allow a week. That way if there are any problems or if the chair is uncomfortable after long periods of sitting you can return it. You can't possibly know if a chair is going to be comfortable after just a few minutes of sitting.
And of course the chair itself should be stable. You don't want a chair that is wobbly. To ensure this you should look for a chair with a five pronged base.
Then there is chair height adjustment. All office chairs must have this feature as people with longer legs will probably want the chair seat higher off the ground otherwise they may begin to feel their legs cramp up.
