Sitting at work has its health downfalls, including decreased muscle tone and an increased chance of gaining extra weight. But even though daytime sitting is often unavoidable, your chair can go far in improving your well-being and your performance. A chair that’s not ergonomically correct may cause you pain and even lead to a back or skeletal disorder.
Part of the problem with desk chairs is that not every chair works for every person. Some features should be considered standard—lumbar support, armrests that you can adjust. But additional add-ons — seat depth adjustment and tilting, for example — allow you to transform a standard desk chair into a custom-fit, healthy one. You should be able to understand how to use those ergonomic features to improve how you’re sitting. Take a look at the provided graphic to serve as a guide.
