Selecting Quality ergonomic chairs-4 points you can not ignore


If you analyze how much time of the day you spend in an office chair, you would be surprised!


With an 8-hour shift, 40 hours a week, it is almost 1900 hours over the course of a year, you spend in a chair. Now, multiply this with the average number of years a person works, you can easily say that a large portion of a person’s life is spent in an office chair. It is even more important than a bed. Despite this, most of the time, we choose to invest in various office equipment and accessories, and not a comfortable chair; the same goes for the home office setups. As we spend more time in front of the computer than we spend sleeping, it is important to choose a comfortable and sturdy chair for both your office and home.


Here listed 4 points you can not ignore in choosing quality ergonomic chairs.

1. Lumbar support

Nobody would doubt that lumbar support for an ergonomic chair is the core to judge it is a good or poor one.  Many people buy an ergonomic office chair is because they have a lumbar strain due to long hours seating in the office or at home. Poor office chairs do not have the same lumbar fitting mechanism as a good ergonomic chair, you will feel uncomfortable especially with extra hours working with poor quality chairs. After some time, the healthy problems for the spine accrued. To improve this situation, buying and updating your office equipment with a comfortable ergonomic chair to relieve the lumbar strain would become important as time goes by.  Solving the lumbar strain is the first element for a good ergonomic chair.


The ergonomic chair you bought should solve the lumbar strain problem, relieve fatigue after long hours of seating, fitting your body perfectly. With these problems solved, the working efficiency would be improved, workers will feel much more comfortable and can work better.


Another factor for lumbar support for the ergonomic chair is the adjust-ability. Different people would have different sizes, weights, it is strongly recommended that the lumbar supporting for your ergonomic chair have the necessary adjust-ability.  The design for the lumbar supporting for the ergonomic office chair is especially important.  The chair should have a sound fitting system, with good adjustment, for example, up and down adjustment, front and back adjustment. Only with such function and design, can the ergonomic chair be a good one and have the best support.

 2. Adjustment


The second point for a comfortable ergonomic chair is the adjustment. We have already discussed the adjust-ability for the lumbar support, here we talk about another adjustment for the chair.

The seat height adjustment is very basic, almost all the claimed ergonomic chairs would have seat height adjustment. Here there is a point you have to pay special attention to. It is the adjustment for the headrest. The headrest is for your neck supporting, not your head.


The other most important adjustment for an office chair with the ergonomic feature is a seat-pan depth adjustment. This adjust-ability avoids the problem of individuals sitting too far back or too far forward in their chairs.  Most individuals of smaller or larger-than-average stature benefit from this feature.  A person of larger stature requires more seat-pan length, and a person of smaller stature requires less.  A person of smaller stature who sits on a long seat pan will experience pressure behind the knees, or will not benefit from the chair’s back support if he sits on the edge of the chair.  A person of larger stature who sits on a short seat-pan length will have inadequate support of the thighs causing higher contact pressure.

3. Material

The third point we will talk about is the material, which basically determines the durability of your chair. We mainly refer to frame structure and the chair body. It is commonsense that the ergonomic chair with an aluminum frame is more durable than plastic. Obviously,  aluminum  > stainless steel > plastic. 


The material of the chair body has a mesh option or foam option. The foam seat may last longer than the mesh in terms of durability, but the elastic for the chair is not as strong as the mesh, It is hard to tell which one is better.


Most of the ergonomic chairs are designed with mesh, which is very popular, and some are designed with environmentally friendly cloth and high-quality memory foam, while mesh has three main types on the market: Matrex in the United States, Wintex in South Korea and domestic brand mesh. Among them, Matrex mesh and Wintex mesh can pass 100000 vertical strong shocks, while domestic mesh will break because of different manufacturers' 60,000-80000 strong shocks, so the quality can be seen: Matrex mesh > Wintex mesh > domestic mesh.

4. Brand and looking


The fourth point is the brand and looking. The influence of the brand generally determines the quality of the seat. On the other hand, it also affects the price of the chair. It is strongly recommended to buy brand ergonomic chairs. This kind of brand ergonomic chair is higher in safety quality and after-sales service is better than those unknown small unknown brands. Both sitting feeling and maintenance are more secure and more at ease. 


The brand ergonomic chairs are certified by the international organization SGS, and then some are certified by the BIFMA of the United States or some other national or international quality certification institutions.
