The Best Ergonomic Office Chair in 2020: Ergo Posture

The best ergonomic office chair solves a potentially huge problem for employees and employers alike: Back pain.

According to the HSE, back pain accounts for around 2.8m lost hours of productivity in the UK each year. Employers have to manage absence from the workplace as well as the reduced ability to perform optimally. And all because employees are spending several hours per day in uncomfortable chairs which do not support the back and enable the best posture to avoid issues.

So, what should you look for in an ergonomic office chair, also known as posture chair?

5 of the most important features of an ergonomic office chair are:

  • Adjustable seat height
  • Seatback angle adjustment
  • Adjustable armrest height
  • Inflatable lumbar support
  • Seat tilt

The Ergonomic Posture office chair offers all these features and a lot more.

  • Adjustable seat height

Seat height is adjusted by the middle lever on the right-hand side of the chair. This allows the seat to be raised or lowered so that the occupant can place their feet on the floor whilst working, ensuring a comfortable back position and no stress through the thighs, knees or calves.

  • Seatback angle adjustment

This seat has a lever at the rear which is twisted to allow the seatback to move. To lock the seat back at the desired angle, push the lever in. The angle of the seat can make a big difference in how comfortable the user feels, helping to prevent upper and lower back and shoulder pain.

  • Adjustable armrest height

A button on the outside of the armrest allows the armrest height to be varied to suit the user. Releasing the button locks the armrest in your chosen position. Having arms well supported at an appropriate height reduces the risk of back and shoulder pain.

  • Inflatable lumbar support

A common area for pain problems in the lumbar area of the back (lower back). The best ergonomic chairs offer inflatable lumbar support which allows the user to pump up or let down an adjustable area on the seatback to more closely molding the seatback to the user’s spine.

  • Seat tilt

Another important feature is the seat tilt. A lever at the rear of the chair is twisted to free the tilt angle of the seat. This reduces pressure on the lower back, back of the knees and enables better blood flow to the legs and feet.The Best Ergonomic Office Chair

Other features of an Ergonomic Office Chair

There are many other features of the best ergonomic office chair for 2020.

  • Seat Slide

A small lever under the seat enables the seat to be adjusted forward or backward to reduce pressure on the back of the knees.

  • Arm Pad Rotation & Slide

The arm pad can be twisted left or right to adjust the angle or pushed forward, backward or side-to-side to achieve the perfect position.

  • Armrest Width Adjustment

The armrest may be pulled away from the seat to a preferred position by loosening the handwheels under each armrest.

  • Height Adjustable Racket Backrest

The backrest has 7 set positions that help the user to get the best possible back support.

  • Adjustable Headrest

Better neck support is achieved by adjusting the headrest to a comfortable height and angle.
