For house or home, Ergonomic Chairs are worth taking a look at. They use to be viewed almost as a piece of medical equipment but are today selling at a rapid pace. If you have ever had back trouble, you know what I mean. These chairs are designed to improve posture and take the pressure off your back and shoulders, giving you a more relaxed seating position. If you think they look bulky, think again, most ergonomic chairs today are designed to fold so that they can be stored in an upright or flat position.
There are two basic designs, one that incorporates a back support and one that is designed to neatly fit under a desk. These chairs are great for those of us that spend long hours in front of a computer or work in a setting where you are going from room to room and need to take the pressure off your feet (like a doctors office). If you don‘t have one but are interested, we suggest that you find a retailer that sells them and try one out. When you decide that you‘d like to purchase one, it is a good idea to check prices on-line as they are often 10% to 30% less expensive and often with free delivery.
Having the right back height for your office chair can be of particular importance for those who suffer from back pain and even for those who want to avoid back pain. A good way to determine the back height that will be needed for your chair is to look at your current office chair. If you currently suffer from upper back you will want to look for a chair that‘s back will come up high enough to support your shoulder blades. Have a friend measure your back in its entirety from the top of the seat on your current office chair up to your shoulder blades to calculate how tall you will need your back rest to be.
After you determine the ideal height for the backrest of your chair, your next concern is making sure your thighs will fit properly on the seat. The average seat depth on any given office chair is typically about 19 inches deep, however, if you are taller most likely this means you have longer legs. Longer legs requires a longer seat to ensure that your thighs will fit properly across the entire length of the seat without a lot of extra room between the back of your knees and the edge of the seat. Some high end chair manufacturers such as ErgoCentric Seating have a special upgrade option that allows the user to choose a longer seat of 21 inches deep. Another great way to solve the problem of having a seat that is too short is to look for chairs that have a seat slider option. A seat slider allows the user to adjust the depth of the chair by pulling up on a lever generally located underneath the front of the seat. When this lever is pulled up, you can then bring the chair forward or back to make the seat either longer or shorter depending on your needs.
