In the UK an office chair or desk chair can be getting used for around 40 hours per week so it is important that your office or desk chair is comfortable and adjustable. Selecting the right desk chair is essential to comfort and overall productivity, and it is imperative to have a good office chair that promotes good posture by supporting the lower back, particularly as the world adopts the hybrid life of home working more and more.

How To Assemble An Office Chair

You can spend hours on the internet researching office chairs in the UK however you could become confused with all the information and endless blogs on what office chair would be most suitable for you.

That's why Hunt Office has compiled all the information you need to make an educated decision on your next desk chair, into a handy buyer's guide.

Sitting on an office chair on a day-to-day basis can, ironically, cause exhaustion. Some people might think, “How can it?” well it does!

The human body is designed to move regularly, so sitting in the same position for hours and hours is not good for your body, and it can end up building up fatigue and causing exhaustion.

You can easily cause wear and tear by sitting with bad posture all day. We forget to adapt to better sitting positions and it can cause aching muscles after a period of time.

A bad quality chair can contribute to bad sitting habits, which can result in long-term damage to your body. If you're looking for office chairs for bad backs then it is worth investing in a good ergonomic chair early on, to prevent any long term damage being caused.

So how to battle sitting exhaustion?

1. Invest in a good quality chair with office chair casters - Changing office chairs to more comfortable office chairs & ergonomic office chairs is a big factor in reducing back strain.

2. To combat fatigue, get out of your office chair on a regular basis. As the human body is designed for movement, move and alter positions as much as possible to make sure blood is pumping.

3. Exercising and stretching at regular intervals throughout the day helps combat fatigue, exhaustion, and tiredness. They don’t have to be any major exercises, just simple routines like neck, shoulder, arm, leg stretching etc. It’s also a brilliant way of keeping your body toned and making your mind alert.

4. Exercise good posture while sitting. Generally, good sitting posture consists of:

•Sitting up straight and looking forward without straining the neck
•Keep the back against the chair, make sure you use a backrest if there are any parts of the back that do not meet the chair
•Keep your monitor or screen at eye level
•Make sure your feet are rested on the floor
•Take often breaks and get the blood flowing around the body

When buying an office chair you may want to consider

Backrest & Seat Contours
Back rest and seat contours contribute towards ensuring better distribution of body weight across the chair.  These contours allow the user to adopt a good sitting position and prevent the tendency to slide forwards, whilst at the same time providing excellent lumbar support.

Armrests play an important part in reducing shoulder and neck strain by supporting the weight of the user’s arms.

All of our operator seating offers a wide degree of adjustability allowing the user to find a comfortable and supportive position.

The back of the chair should allow the ‘S’ shape of the spinal column to be formed and supported. This will prevent slumping in the chair from which back ache and future problems can occur.

Armrests play an important part in reducing shoulder and neck strain by supporting the weight of the user’s arms.

The angle between the thighs and the torso should be approximately 90 –105 degrees.  The back of the seat should be slightly raised to support the pelvis from tipping backwards and reduce pelvis stress.

The length and width of the thigh should be fully supported.  Thighs should run parallel to the floor.  Sliding seat options are usually required for taller adults.

The seat cushion should be rounded forward in a ‘waterfall’ shape allowing the thighs freedom of movement to ease circulation.

Feet should easily and comfortably rest flat on the floor to prevent pressure being placed on the thighs.
