Your office chairs are an integral part of your overall office design. A common mistake people make when they choose their office chairs is to go for the aesthetic quality of design without taking the ergonomic design into account.
When you consider that a badly designed chair can cause back strain, leg and hip problems, and contribute to carpel tunnel syndrome, you begin to see why it is important to spend money on buying really good quality office chairs.
20six's Top Tips For Choosing The Best Office Chairs:
Adjustability: Most office chairs have at least some adjustability, most commonly height and arm rests, but as we are all different shapes and sizes your office chair should have a minimum of five different adjustments.
Back Support: With "bad backs" being the cause of employees taking sick leave, the backrest needs to have adequate support for your lower back - and as above, ideally you also need to be able to adjust it to fit your body.
Chair Base: Your chair's wheels need to be compatible with your office flooring: there are wheels that are designed specifically for carpets for example. And your chair should be able to swivel freely allowing easy access to any part of your work station and office desk.
Fabric: You may be figuratively glued to your office chair but you don't want to be literally stuck to it. Materials need to be breathable and have enough cushioning to support you.
