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

Adjustability

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

Back

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.

Arms

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

Seating

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.

Thighs
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.

Seat

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

Feet

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