Are you shorter or more petite than most individuals? Have a difficult time finding a chair? Here at SitBetter, we talk to customers everyday who are frustrated because most office chairs are just not designed to fit their body type. Because they are sitting in a chair that is too big for their frame, they inevitably end up experiencing back pain from sitting too far forward on their chair’s seat which then eliminates support on their back. Lucky for petite individuals, Sitbetter has a whole selection of petite office chairs, however with such a wide selection it can be hard to determine which will work best for their needs. Luckily, we have broken down our top ten list to help petite individuals select the right chair for them.
1. ErgoCentric GeoCentric
The Geocentric Dedicated Task Chair is a great chair for petite users with its ability to customize the chair to precisely fit users of varying shapes and sizes. This chair also comes with a curved backrest with built in lumbar support, good for those that have lower back pain. It also comes with a comfortable padded seat available in three different sizes. Other features of this chair include back height adjustment, back angle adjustment. seat height adjustment, and seat angle adjustment. Available upgrades include a memory foam seat, adjustable headrest, air lumbar support, and a seat slider among others. Multiple arm options are also available. View this chair by clicking here.
2. ErgoCentric Saffron
The Saffron I Dedicated Task Chair is similar to the GeoCentric mentioned above, both are made by the same manufacturer, ErgoCentric. The Saffron includes the same features as the GeoCentric including the available upgrades and standard features that already come with the chair. The main difference between the two chairs is the backrest, the Saffron’s backrest is flat and does not provide as much lower back support. However, for those smaller individuals that do not suffer from back pain and do not need a specialized backrest, this is a more economical choice. The smaller back size is also ideal for shorter individuals 5′ and under. Three seat sizes are available, including an extra small seat (generally good for people under 4’11″), a small seat (generally good for people 5′-5’4″), or a standard seat size (good for those over 5’4″ tall).

3. ErgoCentric Mycentric

This is particularly beneficial for those that suffer from lower back pain, as this chair was designed specifically for those that suffer from lower back problems while seated and working. The MyCentric features the same options and adjustments as the two aforementioned chairs, the GeoCentric and the Saffron. It has three different seat sizes and different cylinder sizes available as well. The multiple arm options available also allow the user to determine exactly how they need their armrests to perform, including lateral tube armrests which allow for the arm pads to telescope up to 3″ inwards for those that experience back pain because their armrests are too far from their body when seated.

Now…. since I mentioned what ergonomic chairs are not, today I thought I’d try to say what they are!
Firstly, they almost always have multiple adjustments, chair height, back height, seat depth, back to seat angle, arms adjustable, etc. etc. etc….. in other words, a good ergonomic chair is going to adjust to your body, not force the body to adjust to you!
Take the chair I pictured above, not only does it do all the above, the individual sections of the back can adjust independently, making the Verte chair a unique and special (and VERY comfortable) ergonomic chair!
So again, don’t take a sales guy’s word on what’s an ergonomic chair, but look at the quality, the adjustability and other factors before choosing the chair that’s right for you!
I reviewed this chair yesterday…. funny thing is, I was looking around the web and actually discovered there were sites offering this chair as an ‘ergonomic chair’! How absolutely ridiculous!
Now, granted, there are a ton of definitions of ‘ergonomics’ out there, ask 10 people what the term represents and you’ll get 15 definitions! My own personal definition is: adapting your space to your body, not adapting your body to your space.
I’m going to venture, this particular chair above, while being very comfortable for shorter periods of time, is NOT an ergonomic chair! Look, the best this chair does is rotate, go up and down and lean back. Very nice for a conference chair, but not very good for working long hours in front of the computer!
An ergonomic chair, just briefly (I’ll get into the whole aspect of what you want out of one soon enough), is going to have things like adjustable arms, the back will adjust in multiple ways, in other words, that chair is going to adjust to your body, not force you into an awkward, uncomfortable and unhealthy situation.
My whole point here is that you shouldn’t automatically believe a chair is ergonomic simply because someone selling it says it is. Check out the chair, heck, check out the business selling it- do they really know what they’re talking about or just trying to sell you something, anything.

e B7406! This is a chair which is comfortable, durable and has a great price!
When I first sat in it, I was amazed, it has the feel of another chair which costs hundreds more. There is a bit of a underhang right under the lumbar support, so you really get the benefit of a soft and comfortable support right at the lumbar region. The padding is soft and comfortable, the covering is actually called CaresSoft, but you’ll find it difficult to tell the difference between it and leather. The style is contemporary, yet fits in well with a good number of decors, so it will basically fit in just about anywhere!
If you’re considering a purchase of a number of chairs for the conference room, or only one for your home office, this really is a great, inexpensive choice!
