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.
The modern version of the rocking chair is called a contemporary rocking chair. Unlike the other types of rocking chairs, a contemporary rocking chair doesn‘t necessarily present a woody appearance. The said type of rocking chair is available in a wide array of bold colors like red and yellow. The shapes and sizes of contemporary rocking chairs are very different from the conventional types too. Makers of contemporary types of rocking chair are more aggressive when it comes to backrest shapes, rocker forms, leg sizes, and seat materials. Some models of contemporary rocking chair are odd-looking and very geometrical. Despite its unique appearance, the contemporary types of rocking chair still gives the same comfort and relaxation provided by other rocking chair types.
Chairs have been around for centuries, and only keep getting better. With the incorporation of new materials, technology, and ergonomic design, chairs are not only looking better, they feel much better. Chairs are essential pieces of equipment in any home, office, or public setting. And even though chairs are sometimes viewed as "just a piece of equipment", it doesn‘t mean that it has to be tasteless and uncomfortable. On the contrary, chairs on the market today are functional, comfortable, and are very affordable.
Start by looking at high back or executive office chairs because typically these chairs‘ back heights are higher than managers chairs or task chairs. You will want a chair that will provide complete upper back support in order to avoid shoulder or neck pain. Have a friend use a tape measurer to measure your back from the top of your shoulders down to where you would be seated on the office chair. After you have that measurement, look for the back height on the chair of your choice and see if it goes a few inches above your back height. If the back of the chair is shorter than your back height, the chair may not provide the support you will need.
