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

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.
