What IS an ergonomic chair

Verte Ergonomic Office Chair

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!

What’s NOT an ergonomic chair….

Leather Conference Office Chair

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.

If you’re looking for a good, quality conference chair or desk chair at a great price, you can do far worse than th

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!

Buying a new office chair

When buying a new office chair online, you can get overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of office chairs out there. Different sites categorize them in different ways, so how can you find the chair which is right for you? I am going to restrict this to chairs which are certified as business qualified by BIFMA (Business and Industrial Furniture Manufacturer’s Association).

First you have to define what chair you ‘need’ and ‘want’. Those two terms are separate, of course, what you want might be a big plush, poofy, leather office chair, while what you really need is a smaller task chair or an ergonomic chair. Do you spend a lot of time in the chair doing computer tasks or paperwork? If so, you might want to get a decent computer chair, which might be a task chair or ergonomic chair. If you’re the boss, and don’t really spend a lot of time on the computer, and prefer a comfortable chair that makes a statement, a leather office chair might be the choice for you. There are many different sorts of chairs- modern chairs with lots of chrome, rigid chairs, swivel chairs, big and tall (for those a bit more ample than the average), and the list can go on and on.

One very important point- many of those terms above are interchangable and have no real specific meaning.  Let’s face it… a swivel chair goes ’round and round and round (how many of those are out there!).  So one chair can be a lot different to a lot of different people!
In other words, you need to define what you need in an office chair long before you decide to purchase it.

That being said, how do you choose a chair from all the different internet companies out there offering office chairs?

I really recommend looking at their sites. Do they give you information you need to make an informed decision, or do they simply throw a chair at you and tell you everyone else is buying it? Do they give you a good variety of chairs, or just a handful done over and over again in different colors? Are they authoritative, knowing their product and caring what they give you or just out to make a sale.

You see, there are many different considerations to buying office chairs online, far more than could possibly fit here, so I will try to make sense of the process in future blogs.
