Ergonomic desk chairs are also designed to improve the posture of the user. This is done even when the user is doing repetitive tasks on the desk or with a computer. The user is also given freedom of movement as the chair allows the user to swivel easily and effortlessly. It allows the user access of anything within 120 degrees radius from where he is sitting, thus reducing stress.
Recliners these days can have all kinds of options installed. Heat, massage, rockers, swivel. . . even mini-fridges if you want to get real fancy! Just remember that the more options you have, the more there is to go wrong. Sometimes sticking with a timeless style will suit you better than having the newest thing the chair engineers can come up with.
When these are used as task chairs, they usually lack arm rests. On the other hand, if they are to be used as desk chairs, they can be made with armrests and are now more suitable for works of longer duration. Because ergonomic task chairs are the cheapest among all the other types of ergonomic office chairs, you can also expect that this would give the least support. Therefore, this might be the least likely to be recommended for long sitting hours.
The last step to ensure that your tall office chair will be the right choice for you is to determine the height of the cylinder on the chair. The cylinder is simply the device that allows your seat to move up and down. If a cylinder does not allow your seat height to go up high enough you may find yourself sitting at an awkward and uncomfortable angle. Ideally, you would want to sit with your feet firmly planted on the floor with your knees bent at a ninety degree angle. If your current chair you sit in now is at the proper height, measure the length of your leg from your knees to the floor. This will give you a good indication of how high your chairs’ seat should go up to. If you simply can not find a chair with a seat range that does not fall within your height requirements, try opting to look at drafting chair options, as their cylinders are taller for extended height seating. Be wary of the height of your desk if you go for this option, because some drafting chairs will not fit under standard height desks. You may also want to look for chairs that come with different cylinder height options, again, some higher end manufacturers will carry this an upgraded option.
If you think our ordinary task chairs would not go beyond ordinary, think again. Manufacturers have also made ergonomic task chairs which are in fact, one of the most widely used ergonomic office chairs. These can also be and are commonly used as desk chairs because they are cheaper than the other kinds of ergonomic work chairs. They are usually characterized by low and mid back heights and have cushioned seats that are on the harder side.
