An ergonomic chair is a great tool to have in your workspace as it allows you to adjust all
elements of the chair to suit your natural body position. These elements include:
Ergonomic office furniture is essential for those who are sitting at a desk or using a computer
for many hours. Dr Andrew Rochford states that having an ergonomic set up in your workspace for
your body is the ideal way to prevent daily aches and pains. By using ergonomic essentials like
a high-quality desk chair, you can avoid straining your neck and unevenly distributing weight on
your knees and hips while improving upon your posture.
To choose the best ergonomic chair, there are several factors to consider, including how long you
will be sitting for, your body height and weight, and your desk measurements.
You’ll find a range of ergonomic office chairs to fit your desk and suit your style.
When sitting for long periods of time, you need a supportive office chair with features to
keep you healthy and comfortable. Consider the design of the chair, as well as how it feels,
when purchasing. Do you need adjustable arm rests to ensure your chair fits under your desk
and supports your arms? Will you need a head rest or lower back to keep you comfortable? You
can also design
your own office chair to ensure it complements your workspace.
As it’s recommended that you switch between standing and sitting throughout the day, to
accompany a standing desk, it’s a great idea to have a chair that can rise and lower just
like your desk. Sit-stand chairs, often referred to as drafting chairs, can be lifted higher
than regular office chairs, offering you flexibility throughout the day. Chairs like the
Poly Lab Drafting Chair offer all the adjustability you’d expect from a high-quality
office chair, but with improved height flexibility to compliment your standing desk.
Sit-stand stools provide the same height flexibility of sit-stand chairs, but without a tall
back rest. This makes them a more compact option, ideal for those who don’t want to crowd
their workstation. Some even have added ergonomic features to keep you moving while you
work, such as the
Arden Sit Stand Stool, which allows you to slowly rotate the seat in a circular
motion, helping to build core stability while you sit.
There are several different types of ergonomic office chairs to choose from, so you’ll be sure to
find one that is right for you, and your workspace.
When shopping for an office chair, you may come across the acronym AFRDI. Office chairs that are
AFRDI approved are always considered ergonomic.
An AFDRI approved chair is a chair that has been tested to the Australian New Zealand standard
and approved by the Australasian Furnishing Research & Development Institute. The office chairs
that are AFDRI approved comply with AS/NZS 4438 and are ergonomically sound, tough, durable and
Gaming chairs are intended for long periods of sitting and using a computer, making them great
ergonomic chairs. They are designed to put you at eye-level with your computer screen with the
backrest supporting your weight while keeping your neck and back aligned. Additionally, gaming
chairs put a lot of emphasis on adjustable armrests and high reclining backrests to provide
longer-term comfort and prevent pain and stiffness. You can use a gaming chair in your workspace
if you prefer it to a standard ergonomic office chair.
