Maybe you spend the majority of your day in a desk chair, or maybe you only occupy a chair occasionally. No matter how long you’re seated at work, comfort isn’t just a luxury; it’s important for good health.
When you realize just how many choices are available, you might think that the only difference is appearance and cost. But there’s so much more to it. Here’s what to look for in a good quality office chair, such as the ones available through Cubiture:
Five Legs are Better Than Four
Some office chairs have four legs, and others have five. While four doesn’t mean that a chair is subpar, five gives you something more. The stability of five legs means there’s less risk of tipping over. Also, weight distribution across five legs means there’s less stress and wear on each of the casters.
As for the casters, check for smooth swiveling action and durable construction with metal and sometimes a plastic covering for aesthetics. Rolling toward and away from the desk is great, but a chair that sticks instead of rolling, turning and moving freely in all directions can be a hassle. When you try out a chair at Cubiture, you’ll see firsthand how it functions.
Lumbar Support Protects Your Spine
The lumbar area of the spine is one of the most prone to injury. And some injuries happen from repeated stress and poor support. A chair with built-in lumbar support is a step in the right direction, but there’s still more to it.
ABC News explains that lumbar support doesn’t really help at all if it doesn’t fit the user. So look for chairs with an adjustable back that lets you personalize the position of the lumbar support.
Ergonomic Design Reduces Stress
Lumbar support is part of overall ergonomic design. So is a curving edge along the front of the seat and on both arm rests, which reduce pressure on the legs and forearms. But ergonomics isn’t just about a chair’s shape. It’s also about adjustability. The more adjustable the chair, the more likely you’ll be to find that perfect ergonomic balance.
Look for a tilting back rest that raises and lowers, and a seat that does the same. Arm rests should also adjust, both up and down and side to side. At the base, you’ll want a range of adjustability, too. All of these features combined help you sit comfortably, and they facilitate adjustments so you can change position throughout the day without sacrificing support. Our experienced staff can show you the right way to adjust each feature on all of our office chairs for maximum comfort.
