Chairs Information

If you’ve worked in an office environment before you’ll know that not all office chairs are made equally. You get office chairs that look comfortable at first glance, but after sitting down for a while, your body starts to disagree. The most common complaints are related to back, lower back, hip, neck pain, cramping and muscle fatigue, numbness, poor circulation, and a lack of focus.

We know what you’re thinking, how can this be avoided, right? This is the question our expert ergonomists have been asking too. Luckily for you (and your body), they’ve come up with a solution to counteract these aches and pains, and instead, encourage movement and provide comfort. The secret is an ergonomic office chair!

 

What is an ergonomic office chair?

The word, ‘ergonomic’, relates to efficiency and comfort in a working environment. As Humanscale puts it:

Ergonomics is about designing for people. Defined as the science of fitting a workplace to the user’s needs, ergonomics aims to increase efficiency and productivity and reduce discomfort.

So with this in mind, ergonomic, or ergo office chairs are simply office chairs that have been designed with a person’s comfort, productivity, movement, and wellbeing in mind.

 

What makes a good office chair?

In this section we provide you with a checklist of non-negotiable things to look for in an office chair:

  • Height adjustable seat pan
  • Seat depth adjustability
  • Adjustable armrests
  • Automatic lumbar support to promote a good posture.
  • Adjustable recline to adapt to the user’s specific height, size, weight, etc.
  • Custom-fit to support each individual sitter day in and day out.
  • Comfortable and promotes movement throughout the day.

Does an ergonomic chair come with a warranty?

Most reputable ergonomic office chairs should come with a warranty. At Ergolab we provide our customers with top-quality, Humanscale products. Our ergonomic chairs come with a warranty that is second to none:

The benefits of an ergonomic office chair

If you use an ergo chair your body will undoubtedly feel the difference. It’s proven that you are highly likely to reap the following amazing benefits:

  • Improved sitting posture.
  • Adequate back and lumbar support.

How to take care of your ergonomic chair

Buying a task chair is not a cheap exercise, however, it is a worthwhile, long-term investment in your health. That being said, we want to make sure that it is well taken care of. Here are some basic care instructions to follow:

  • Clean your chair regularly.
  • Use a damp cloth to wipe down harder surfaces, like the armrests.
  • Gently vacuum upholstery components without applying too much pressure.
  • Check that all the fasteners are intact.
  • Ensure that the wheels are free from dust and dirt.
