Office chairs come in all shapes and sizes. Unfortunately, not all of these are ergonomically correct and cannot be classified as ergonomic chairs or ergonomic office chairs. We are meticulous about the chairs we have on offer, and with good reason. Ergonomic chairs, and specifically ergonomic office chairs for bad backs, also sometimes referred to as orthopedic desk chairs, are all about their adjustability – the more your positioning can be refined or changed, the better the likelihood of achieving the ideal position behind your desk.
Ergonomic Office Chairs
A quality ergonomic chair is an investment in your health. It is critical to ensure that you choose the best chair for your specific needs. If possible, it is recommended that you try out your chair before purchasing. The choice of a chair can be a rather personal since our anatomical requirements can vary substantially. Ergonomicsdirect offers a selected range of easy to use, highly adjustable ergonomic chairs. It is essential to ensure that you know your chair and understand the adjustments and functionality that it offers. Important features to consider are height adjustability, seat pan slide, armrest adjustment, adjustability to the lower back support, an optional headrest with adjustability and a reclining function of the backrest.
Chair Back Support
It is critical that your office chair provides you with sufficient back support. Ideally you would want an office chair with lumbar support, and even more importantly, adjustable back support. Unfortunately, a new chair is not always an option, and this is where an external back support for your chair can make a significant difference.
Gas Lifts, Wheels, and Parts
Ergonomicsdirect has recently added selected chair parts to our product offering. The soft, multi-surface wheels have proven to be very popular and are often used on surfaces such as laminated flooring or tiles. A small change to your existing chair can often make a significant difference.
Stools and Saddles
Ergonomicsdirect offers several innovative, non-standard stools and saddle chairs with an array of uses. Products such as the wobble stool are ideal to use at sit to stand workstations. It offers you all the instability of a Pilates ball but with adjustable height. The saddle chair is a multipurpose chair that can be used at normal desk height, in a sit-stand position or at a bench or plinth height. The saddle chair is often used by dentists and therapists. Perhaps it is time to rethink the office chair and challenge yourself with a chair that enables you to strengthen your core and allows you to be in different positions during the day. There’s no need to be stuck in your usual office chair all day.
