If you too fall into this category of workers and you recognize yourself in this description, our advice is to evaluate the purchase of a chair designed to ensure the right posture.
These office chairs are the perfect solution for any inconvenience caused by spending several hours in a sitting position. But where to buy excellent and quality office chairs? Let’s find out the answer to this and many other questions in our 2020 buying guide!
How to choose the most suitable office chairs for you
You may never have thought about it, but if you suffer from back and joint pain a lot, probably one of the main causes is your posture when sitting at your desk. Or, it could simply be because you spend a lot of time in a sitting position. Precisely for this reason, buying an ergonomic chair, which can ensure the right support for your body, is a wise decision that will surely help you get better.
Before proceeding with the purchase and venturing to investigate all the office chairs on offer, you must evaluate your height and that of the desk at which you sit most often. In this way, you can opt for a model that allows a greater number of adjustments, and you can really adapt the backrest to your needs.
To identify the best office chairs, the basic requirements for choosing are certainly the possibility of changing the seat height and the inclination of the backrest. The latter should measure at least between 30 and 50 centimeters). In this way you will be able to insert the chair more comfortably under the desk and find yourself at the right distance from the shelf, keyboard, and mouse, avoiding finding yourself in uncomfortable and often harmful positions.
Another aspect to consider is the possible presence of the armrests. They are as useful as they are underestimated, often and willingly. If you usually need some freedom of movement, you should not only prefer a model with wheels but also avoid the armrests, which could be an obstacle and also be quite uncomfortable. If, on the other hand, you use the computer, the armrests represent a valid support for your forearms, and buying a model that also allows you to adjust them in height is certainly a wise idea.
Regardless of the use, you will make of it, at work or at home for your passions, the chair must be comfortable in every station. Cold or hot should therefore not be a particular problem for your new chair. For this reason, you may prefer an eco-leather chair, perhaps equipped with fabric inserts that are able to avoid excessive sweating. The best fabric is certainly the breathable one, which ensures good heat dispersion and therefore makes the chair cool even in the hottest seasons. However, this would not be possible in the case of materials such as leather or leather.
Also, one of the main reasons that determine the cost of office chairs is the type of materials used as well as the number of adjustments available. Especially if you have a few kilos too much, a good office chair must have a sturdy frame, preferably made of steel, carefully assembled and fastened wheels and padding that supports the loins and, in general, even the most robust people.
On the market, however, you will also find some more particular chairs. They will prove to be perfect if you need a specific product, perhaps because you suffer from more serious problems related to the back or joints. In this case, on the market, you can find ad hoc chairs, made with accessories that may appear unusual. but which are particularly suitable to help you assume a correct posture.
Some of these accessories, which you will surely have already seen around, are the knee rest, but also various and any additional supports for the back, with different alternative seats or with rocking support. The latter may seem like a really strange choice, as it resembles the old grandmother’s chair, but it will prove to be perfect for preventing the pelvis from remaining stationary for too many hours at a time. This is very important, especially if you have no way to move often or go to the gym at least three times a week to stretch your muscles.
However, it is always necessary to take into consideration the fact that chairs of this type should not help you relax, but rather prevent you from assuming incorrect physical attitudes and harm to your back and posture. For this reason, a model that is too comfortable is probably not the best choice, even if at first it may seem the opposite because the tension generated by an inadequate posture tends to accumulate more when you assume an excessively comfortable position. Obviously, you do not notice it at the moment, but this could contribute to back pain, pain in the neck area, and other even more serious discomforts.
If you are unsure about this, there is no better solution than to consult a doctor and explain your needs. It will certainly give you more information about the posture to assume, and what to do to make the many hours spent in a sitting position more bearable.
Now that you know how to choose your new chair, let’s take a look at some last useful tips, which will help you always get the best out of your chair.
Recommendations for use
Now let’s see some last tips, which will help you to always use your new chair for the office or for your domestic passions in the best possible way.
First of all, one of the first things that a chair of this type must guarantee is the correct support for the lumbar area. This is definitely the first way to avoid back pain or to cushion it if unfortunately you already suffer from it. Often we tend not to give weight to such a thing but, over the years, these small unheard discomforts can also evolve into chronic pain or into real pathologies. The same goes for the discomfort related to the cervical area, often the origin of the worst headaches of your life, but unfortunately still very underestimated by many users. If you already suffer from these problems, it is always good to consult a doctor first, who may suggest additional therapy to do, in addition to buying the right chair for you.
To make a speech more generally, a perfect chair must be above all ergonomic. Basically, when you sit down, your body should feel enveloped and welcomed as if in a warm and comfortable embrace! Possibly there should also be a good headrest that ensures the necessary support to the neck, and that helps us to stay with the back straight, well supported on the backrest. In some cases, you may want to purchase single pads compatible with almost any office chair model on the market, to add thickness to the one already in your chair. However, try not to overdo it: a pillow that is too thick could still cause bad posture.
Obviously, in order to best accommodate you, the chair must be able to support your weight, whatever it is, this means that the frame of the chair must be strong, sturdy. First of all, you need to check the maximum load that the chair of your choice can withstand, especially bearing in mind that the cheapest models, in the best of cases, can support 100 kg. For this reason, it is good to focus on frames that can cope with greater loads. Some models do not exceed 110 kg, but by looking carefully and patiently, and spending a few tens of euros more, you will surely be able to take home a chair capable of withstanding weights up to 150 kg or even 180 kg! Watch out for the wheels: if they are stable and sturdy, then the chair can really hold the weight indicated on its characteristics.
The chair must obviously also be adjustable in height, to meet the needs of more or less tall users. Cheaper chairs may experience problems after a while, such as dropping abruptly or breaking suddenly. Also for this reason it is good to always focus on leading brands in the sector and quality materials.
As for the materials, many prefer real leather, but such a chair is really very expensive and could prove uncomfortable in the warmer seasons. There are ecological materials that allow you to not give up on elegance, including eco-leather. If it is of good quality, it will also be breathable. Fabric inserts can contribute to the breathability of the product. The padding, on the other hand, covers the upholstery and is essential to give comfort to the armchair. It must be thick enough and able to adapt to the weight of the body. Obviously, it must also be hypoallergenic and non-toxic, but you shouldn’t have big problems with this: almost all the chairs now on the market have passed all the safety and health tests imposed by European standards., therefore the possibility of running into poor and toxic materials is very rare.
