Why workplace seating is important, how to choose your perfect office chair.
The most important thing to remember when selecting an office chair is that people come in all shapes and sizes, so there is no ‘one size fits all’ office chair that will suit everybody. An employee who is cramped, or who is in pain due to a poorly designed computer desk chair is not an employee who will enjoy their work and perform to the best of their abilities. A good office chair will allow the user to adjust the office chair to fit their body, their desk, and their activities.
The most productive employees are those who feel at home in the workplace. These employees are free to focus on the tasks at hand, rather than some small part of their mind remaining occupied on basic comfort considerations. If people don’t move around a lot throughout the course of the working day, they will require an office chair which is well matched to their body.
An ill-fitting office chair will quickly cause pain. Employees should be able to adjust the seat so when their feet are firmly on the floor their legs are bent to 90 degrees, which assists the pressure applied to the lower back. The user’s arms should also be bent to 90 degrees whilst their hands are flat on the desk, assisting the upper back and shoulders which will prevent slouching and bad posture.
Using the picture links above you can choose the type of office chair that suits you. Choose from economical office operator chairs, luxurious high back office manager chairs, heavy duty 24 hour use office chairs, bariatric chairs, ergonomic highly adjustable modern stylish mesh office chairs, traditional fabric task chairs in various colours and genuine leather office chairs or faux leather executive office chairs and meeting or visitors chairs.
