Basic Office Ergonomics
If you sit at a desk for hours at a time, you’re not doomed to a career of neck and back pain or sore wrists and fingers. Proper office ergonomics – including correct chair height, adequate equipment spacing and good desk posture — can help you and your joints stay comfortable at work.
Selecting an Ergonomic Chair
- A good ergonomic chair will be fully adjustable (Seat, Back & Arms), to allow for better control and customized settings.
- Choose a chair that supports your spinal curves.
- It must be height adjustable, to enable your feet to rest flat on the floor or on a footrest and your thighs are parallel to the floor.
- Armrests must be adjustable, so your arms gently rest on them with your shoulders relaxed.
- Tall people will be best served by “Big & Tall” Chairs, while small people will be best suited to “Petite” Chairs, with a shallow Seat Pan.
