Tips for Choosing the Right Chair for Computer Workstations
The chair height should be adjustable. At the seats lowest position, your feet should be flat on the floor; at the highest, your knees should angle up.
Choosing the right armrest can reduce shoulder, neck and back strain. Look for a chair with a short armrest and try to avoid putting pressure on your elbows. Too much pressure may cause nerve damage and unwanted discomfort.
The chair should have lumbar support. The contours in the back of the chair should mold to the natural curve of your spine.
Make sure that your seat is not flat. Tilt your seat forward so you can lean into your work. This position may feel awkward at first but places your spine in a natural position. This will help to eliminate lower back pain.
