A Guide on Choosing The Right Office Chair
Be it an office chair or a study chair, comfort level is always on top of the priority list, and being comfortable on our chair means having proper lumbar support, neck support and backrest tilt tension.
Proper Lumbar Support
The lumbar is the lower part of the back, and is the part of the body that hurts the most after spending hours sitting on a chair. When we are in a seated position, the lower portion of our spine naturally curves inwards towards the belly. This means that a gap is present between the lower back and the seat, and that gap can be filled with a lumbar back support. Most people aren’t aware of this technicality, hence the rise in lower backache issues among young working professionals.
Proper Head Support
A head support is used to prevent stress on the neck when staying seated for too long. What most people don’t know is that the neck should receive as much attention as the lower back. This is apparent in offices that prefer buying or using regular office chairs as opposed to high-back office chairs. For adequate head or neck support, high-back office chairs are the go-to. It promotes better posture and allows its users to rest when they need to.
Backrest Tilt Tension
Most people are aware that office chairs come with backrests that can be tilted, but did you know that there’s more than one type of tilt mechanism? There’s the synchro-tilt mechanism, which is ergonomic and much more comfortable, especially when compared to the knee-tilt mechanism. An office chair with a synchro-tilt mechanism enables the seat cushion to move in a 1:2 ratio with the backrest, allowing users to stretch and lengthen their midsection.
Also, the tilt tension of the backrest should be adjustable too, as users with an average build will want a softer tension than those with a larger build. If the office chairs you are getting are meant for sharing between users of all kinds, like for a co-working office or even your home, then a chair with an intuitive weight detector will be very helpful!
