Anatomy of a Perfect Ergonomic Chair | Viak Group

An ergonomic office chair makes it easier for employees to do their job reducing their stress. Here are the features that make a good ergonomic chair.

1. Seat height

Choosing a chair with a malleable seat height is a good idea considering every person's height. A seat height that ranges from about 16 to 21 inches off the bottom is an ideal height range for most Indian people.

2. Seat range and depth

The seat should have enough range and depth to support any seater comfortably. Proper depth should leave 2 to 4 inches between the edge of the seat and the reverse of your knees.

3. Seat Tilt

Seat Tilt is present in all good ergonomic chairs allowing for the correct positioning of the pelvis as it is recommended to keep the pelvis in a neutral position when sitting, with an 80- degree angle at the hips, knees, and ankles.

4. Backrest Lumbar support

Chairs with backrest lumbar adaptation support the natural shape of the spine by aligning the shape of the chair with the curve of the spine.

5. Swivel

Swivels allow sideways movement to twist your body awkwardly when seated, making it easier to reach different points of desks without inordinate strain on your lower back.

6. Armrests

Armrests are meant to keep the shoulders relaxed and reduce upper body pressure while seated against the desk. 

7. Headrest

An office chair with a headrest is meant to give maximum comfort to your head, upper neck, shoulders, and upper torso and to protect your back from injury.

8. Fabric

A chair made from comfortable fabric ensures the seater's back remains dry and avoids the accumulation of sweat with leather or velvet-like materials.

9. Wheels

Chairs with wheels have the benefit that you can move them around without the need to lift them. This is helpful if your job constantly requires you to reach out for stuff that isn't exactly within your arms' reach.
