What Chair is Best for you? What should I consider when selecting an office chair?
A basic rule of ergonomics is that there is no such thing as an “average” person. However, providing seating specifically designed for each individual is not practical.
The only solution is to provide workers with fully adjustable seating that can accommodate a maximum range of people (typically around 90 percent of the population; workers falling in the ranges of 5% of the shortest and the tallest will need custom-made chairs).
The culture of the workplace also demanded that a distinct difference exist between the seating that the employees used and that of the chief executive. When swivel chairs were widely used, the executive sat in a straight-backed chair with no mobility to demonstrate his status. As design of the office chair eliminated the arms and added cushioned seats, the executive chair became a large, upholstered seating with closed arms and wide, luxurious seats.
Sitting in an office chair for prolonged periods of time can cause or worsen lower back problems. This is why choosing the right chair is important.
