What should I be looking for in an ergonomic chair?
There are a number of features that adjustable ergonomic chairs should possess. These include:
The height of the seat should be easily adjustable so that your feet are always firmly on the floor. For most people, a height of between 400 and 500mm off the floor is generally sufficient. If you must have the seat higher for whatever reason, a footrest can be used to prevent your feet from dangling.
The seat should have enough width and depth to support you comfortably. You should be able to sit with your back against the backrest and a 10 to 70mm gap between the back of your knees and the seat. A 3 lever mechanism chair will enable you to adjust the forward and backward tilt to ensure correct ergonomics.
We offer the best ergonomic office chairs with lumbar support. They should have adjustable lumbar support, both in terms of height and depth, so that you can get the right fit for supporting the inward curve of your lower back. Please note that lumbar support doesn’t always suit everyday, so ensure this is for you.
The backrests on adjustable chairs should be between 400 and 550mm wide. If it’s separate from the rest of the seat, it should be adjustable in height and tilt. If the seat and backrest are joined (ie an executive model), knee tilt or synchronised mechanism chairs are the better choice.
The armrests on the best ergonomic chairs will be adjustable, allowing you to rest your arms comfortably and for your shoulders to be relaxed. Your elbows and lower arms should rest comfortably, with the forearms free whilst typing. Please note that we don’t suggest chair arms for taller users, as they will conflict with the desk when reaching the correct height.
The material used in the manufacture of ergonomic chairs is also important. The seat and back should have plenty of padding so that it is comfortable to sit on for extended periods. A cloth fabric that breathes is also preferable to a harder surface like vinyl. A large range of our chairs is upholstered in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth ensuring you have the right fabric for your office fitout.
