Which office chair should I buy?

Are you looking for an ergonomic office chair? Then it is important to know what requirements an office chair that is suitable for you must meet so that you make the right purchase. We have some tips below!

Choose a mobile office chair

An ergonomic office chair must be able to move freely. We therefore also recommend office chairs with 5 wheels. The choice of the type of wheels is also important. There are standard hard wheels on an office chair. These wheels are best suited for a soft surface, because the office chair rolls better on it. We recommend soft wheels for hard surfaces, because they make less noise and do not damage the floor.

Correct seat

The seat must provide sufficient support and comfort. Pay close attention to the dimensions of the seat and whether it is adjustable. The seat should be deep enough to provide ergonomic support to the legs without putting pressure on the hollows of the knee. This blocks the blood supply, which is why ergonomic office chairs have a rounded front. The seat should still be comfortable after 20 to 60 minutes. Inadequate padding of the seat or backrest can cause a painful and unpleasant back and hips.

Rule for adjusting an adjustable seat:

Sit as far back as possible on the seating area. Then adjust the seat so that the back of your knees does not touch the front edge of the office chair. The correct distance between them is a fist. This prevents the blood vessels and nerves of your legs from getting pinched.

Height adjustable

It is important that the office chair can be adjusted in height, because it is not comfortable to sit if your legs are too far or too close to the floor. What is the correct seat height? The correct seat height is when your feet are flat on the floor and your knees are bent at an angle of 90 to a maximum of 110 degrees.

Adjustable backrest

Adjust the backrest in such a way that when you sit upright in a relaxed manner, the lumbar support falls into the back cavity and provides support there. It is important to sit as far back as possible in the chair.  

Tiltable backrest

It is most ergonomic not to fix the backrest, but to adjust the spring force so that your backrest moves with you. If you move forward slightly, make sure that the office chair also moves with it. If you are sitting upright, make sure that the backrest remains upright.

Adjustable armrests

Make sure your arms are at an angle of about 90 degrees and that you are relaxed. Your forearms rest on your desk for the most part, but make sure that the armrests are still the same height as your desktop and support your elbows. Adjust the width of the armrests so that the elbows remain close to the body
