Choosing the Proper Chair

Office Ergonomics

A good seat should be appropriate for the task, uniformly support the body, help to maintain neutral postures, allow for easy movement and provide long-term comfort.

Office chairs come in all different shapes and sizes.  Choosing the proper seating can be a challenge at the best of times. Most chair designs fit differently appealing to various body types. These subtle differences may have an affect on comfort over time. Research the chair online (check features, adjustments, reviews).

Some local seating distributors offer a trial program where you can request a chair for use at work at no additional cost. At the very least visit some showrooms and sit in various chairs, trying to mimic your typical tasks at work (computer, paperwork)
