How to Choose Good Office Chairs


The workforce is filled with people who spend most of their time on office chairs. The average office person spends about, 40 hours every week seated. When this hours is multiplied by the number of days one works, and the number of years, you will be shocked at how you spend most of your time on an office chair. It is no wonder that many people keep complaining of backpains, swelling legs, and neck problems. The problem is that, they have not realized that it is the chair they spend most of their time in, that is causing much of their problems. In this article I'll guide your on how to choose the Best Executive Office Chairs for your office that will lead to more comfort and increased productivity in your workplace.

Ability to easily adjustA good office chair should be easily adjustable. It's height should be easily adjustable to suit the worker, the lumbar support should be adjustable to support the lower back. The arm adjustments should allow the person sitting to easily move their arms, while working and it's height should be adjustable as well. The office workers should be able to adjust the seat to their preferred position without much hassle. Lumbar support The lower back is one sensitive part of the human body. The lower back is curved naturally, however due to lack of lumbar support in most seats, people are usually forced to sit upright thus, forcing the curved lumbar to go in a horizontal position. This is usually the beginning of the myriads back problems that affect a number of adults. A good office chair should be able to support the lumbar region. This will improve productivity in the office since no worker will take sick leave for back pains.

Comfortable fabricThe fabric on which an office worker sits should be comfortable. Leather is comfortable but heats up when seated on for long periods. Some fabrics are comfortable but wear out quickly, causing discomfort. However, high end fabrics tend to be comfortable, breathable and durable for long periods of time. When purchasing a good office chair consider the fabric that your workers will feel comfortable with. Easy Movement While in an office your will be required to move to take objects at random positions. A good office chair should be able to allow easy unstrained movement. This will be effective by possession of a swivel and a wheel base. A swivel helps reduce arm fatigue since the worker will easily access all parts of the desk. A wheel base on the other hand, serves the same purpose as a swivel since it allows easy movement to reach out to items.

When your want to buy office chairs for your company it is prudent to consider what your staff might think about it. Allowing your staff to try out the new office furniture; this will give you a feedback if it is the right choice for them, and if it not the right one for them you should consider looking out for better options.

One last thing, when trying out a new office chair ensure that; 1. Your backrest is adjustable, and it follows the shape of your spine at your lower back. 2. Your feet should rest flat on the floor comfortably. 3. Your arm should be close to your body, and the shoulders should relax. 4. Your arm height should match the desk's height and be easily adjustable. 5. The back of your knee should be a few inches far, from the front of the chair.

A good office chair means, good health to your staff, more productivity to your company and comfort in the workplace. This will not only give you your ROI but also give your staff a job satisfaction feeling.
