Ergonomic Chairs

Here's what to look for in an ergonomic office chair:

  • Lumbar support: The curve in the back of the chair should support your lower spine, following the natural curve of your lower back.
  • Seat depth: Chairs that fit your body will allow you to sit comfortably with your lower back against the lumbar support while also leaving an inch or two between the back of your knees and the seat.
  • Chair height: You should be able to adjust the height of the chair so your feet are flat on the floor or on a footrest.
  • Armrests: Armrests should be at the proper height so your shoulders aren't hunched and you can keep your arms parallel to the floor.
  • Recline-ability: Reclining in your chair, at about 135 degrees, may be better for your spine than sitting straight up at a 90 degree angle.

Maintain good posture

Maintain good posture

Aim to be seated with your feet resting flat on the floor, and with your hips and lower back supported by the chair. At the same time, your knees should be flexed to approximately 90˚, and your elbows should be slightly flexed, with your forearms resting comfortably on the desk surface.

Fix Your Workstation

Find the ideal desk height and keep your feet flat on the floor when sitting (the right seat height is level with your knees).
