In this article we re going to discuss what to look for when purchasing or thinking of purchasing a chair for the office.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
