There is a wide variety of executive ergonomic chairs to choose from. One of the most popular type is the executive ergonomic mesh office chair. This is a great choice because the mesh is much softer and easier on the body when it comes to spending the hours you will spend in this chair. Some of the ergonomic chair features that make this office chair so popular are the lumbar support and the contour seat. Also available is the synchronized tilt which makes putting your back in a comfortable position much easier.
Make sure that the front part of the seat should slope down slightly and allow a fist size gap between the back of the knees and the front edge of the seat pan to reduce pressure at the back of the thighs. The tilt mechanism maintains support as you move and recline; it’s best to have your back slightly reclined while you’re seated at your desk. Inadequate lumbar support places too much pressure on the spine.
The terms computer ergonomics and office ergonomics are often used interchangeably; they are usually referring to body-adapted ergonomic chairs, office chairs, stools, desks, keyboards, mice, and so on. The word has become an important part of office terminology. The features of ergonomic chairs and office chairs are listed below. What you need to look for in an ergonomic chair depends a lot on what you’ll most likely be using the chair for. Ergonomics can be applicable in many work environments including, medical, industrial and laboratory but it’s growing more important than ever in today’s office environment.
Besides this, the seat of the ergonomic desk chair should be able to stretch a minimum of one inch from either side of your hips for adequate support to your thighs. Armrests: Imagine a chair without armrests! The armrests should be wide, padded with soft material, contoured, and full of comfort. If you get an ergonomic desk chair with adjustable armrests, it’s great! Such chairs release the strain from your neck and shoulders, and protect you from carpal tunnel syndrome.
Your skeletal joints need movement, or your joints become stiff from lack of movement. They also need flexibility, meaning they need to be stretched, or they become stiff and sore. And your muscles that surround the skeletal joints need strength, so that they can protect the joint from any serious harm. In other words, take advice from athletes who all use movement, flexibility and strength in their training protocol for fitness. It is something that should be called ’functional fitness’.
