When purchasing chairs, you need to be mindful of the quality of the item. There is no point buying bulk economy chairs to find that they warp or discolor or that the seat breaks in no time. Chairs need to be durable, and the best foldable chairs should be quality standard tested. If you are on a tight budget, you can often find secondhand chairs in both metal and wood available at discount costs; carefully chosen these chairs can be your best option and they can last you many years.
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.
But the, not all ergonomic office chairs are the same. Aside from choosing an ergonomic chair over a regular one, you also have to choose which type of ergonomic chair would suit you or your employees best. To give you more information, here are the most common types of ergonomically correct work chairs.
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.
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.
