Office Chair Ergonomics
One of the most important purchases you can make with regard to your workspace is the office chair. Lumbar support for office chairs is the most critical, although support for all areas of contact is important. That’s why Olpin Group offers a wide variety of office chairs, including the heralded BioFit chairs, to ensure proper office chair ergonomics.
Because everybody is built differently, chairs should be adjustable with regard to the seat height as well as the backrest and armrest positions. In this way, you can be sure the chair will adjust to each person’s needs, rather than each person trying to adjust to the chair.
Be sure to check for the following with regard to office chair ergonomics:
- A backrest that provides lumbar support for office chairs, adjusts to various angles, and follows the curvature of the spine.
- Armrests that are soft and can be adjusted to the proper height so forearms rest comfortably and remove the weight from the shoulders without forcing them upward.
- A seat that is comfortable, offers support, and can be adjusted to a height that allows feet to rest flat on the floor without forcing the knees upward.
- A solid base with five legs and casters so the chair can be easily moved into and back away from the appropriate position as needed.
Proper office chair ergonomics can make all the difference when it comes to reducing physical stress, unnecessary exertion, and strained posture. Lower body, arm and lumbar support for office chairs help ensure workers’ health and productivity.
