What To Know before Buying A Chair?
Just getting an ergonomic office chair will not ease all the aches from sedentary sitting or miraculously make your posture perfect.
There is a required amount of effort to get the most out of your new ergonomic office chair. Here are some things to take into consideration in sitting comfortably.
While fully leaned back, sitting straight, there should be enough space between the back of your calf and the edge of the chair’s seat to fit a clenched fist.
While seated, there should be enough space to slide your fingers underneath your thigh at the front edge of the chair. If it’s loose, raise your chair & if it’s tight, prop your feet up with a footstool.
Low back support:
While your back is up against the chair, there should be a bump near your lower back, commonly referred to as lumbar support.
Elbows should be at around 90° degrees to increase healthy posture.
Usually worn down or discolored, and may even have started the process of ripping off.
Resting eye level:
The optimal eye-level to your computer monitor is around the top part of the screen, basically where your eyes naturally meet the screen upon a quick glance.
Knowing these measurements is essential to finding a comfortable seat, but choosing your chair wisely involves further questioning.
