• A good ergonomic office chair should support your back and keep your whole body in a good posture.
  • A good ergonomic office chair adjusted correctly helps prevent pain in your back, hips and legs.
  • The chair features you’ll need to help prevent pain when seated would include having a sturdy 5-star base and seat height and back angle adjustability as a minimum – but you should also look for other adjustments such as back height and seat length as well.
  • Consider an independent back and seat mechanism with tension adjustment; a seat slide to alter the seat depth; and an in-built adjustable lumbar cushion to give you support wherever your body needs it. Ideally, a lumbar support on the backrest of your chair should fit into the lumbar curve of your back.
  • A good office chair should provide supported movement, be flexible enough to match your physical dimensions and will provide whole body support when sitting in a variety of different positions.
  • Choose from high back, medium back and low back chair options.
  • Buy your office chair from a good retailer who has the experience and knowledge of ergonomics
  • Choose an office chair that can be adjusted quickly and easily to suit your individual height, weight and shape.
  • Avoid chairs which offer only very basic adjustments such as just moving up and down – instead consider an office chair that’s fully adjustable for seat height, back angle, back height, seat slide (for upper leg support) and lumbar support.
  • If you prefer to have armrests then choose a chair with height-adjustable armrests
