What are the effects of ergonomic chairs on sitting posture?

Ergonomics desk chairs mainly regulates fatigue from the following aspects:

1. Head: The height and rotation of the headrest can be adjusted, allowing the user's cervical spine to fit the headrest naturally, standardizing the sitting posture of the sitting person, and resisting office enjoyment. The best position is when the height of the headrest fully supports your cervical spine.
2. Chair back: The best support position for the waist is the third and fourth spine. The entire computer chair back can be adjusted in height, which can easily meet the needs of different users and reduce most of the human body weight carried by the lumbar vertebrae.
3. Lumbar support: Separate movable lumbar support, the resilience is concentrated on the movable lumbar support, giving the user the closest propping up. The active lumbar support relaxes and fits the entire lower back comfortably to the lower back by adjusting the curvature, so that the back vertebrae are relaxed, thereby relieving the fatigue of the back vertebrae.
4. Armrest: Adjust the height and angle of the armrest to make the transition between the hand and the table smoother and prevent the mouse hand from being generated.

When you go to work, having a comfortable chair can improve work efficiency; when you are relaxing at home, having a good computer chair can also make yourself more relaxed.

The principle of the ergonomic chair is to provide support for the waist, shoulders, and buttocks through the support system of the chair, so that the lumbar spine can naturally stand up while maintaining a sitting posture. The central fulcrum of the office chair can be distributed between the ischium and the thigh, allowing the spine to maintain a normal curve as much as possible. This is to reduce the pressure on the lumbar spine and ensure health.

How To Choose An Ergonomic Chair?

The ergonomic chair gets its name because it is a chair invented based on the theory of "ergonomics", which can support the whole body and is extremely comfortable.
So what should we pay attention to when choosing an ergonomic chair?

1. Headrest of office chair

The headrest is an important part of an ergonomic office chair. The function of headrest is to alleviate the diseases on the human cervical spine, and it is undoubtedly the gospel for those people who are used to taking a nap. The adjustment of the headrest can be divided into lifting, angle, front and rear adjustment. In terms of air permeability, mesh material is better than sponge, but sponge comfort is better.

2. Lumbar support of ergonomic computer chair

The lumbar support is the most important part of the ergonomic mesh chair, and it is also an important part of whether you can lean back and support your lumbar spine. Generally can be divided into up and down adjustment and front and back adjustment. Among them, the lifting adjustment is more common, and the front and rear adjustment is relatively rare. Some ergonomic chairs will have a split back design.

3. Armrest of the chair

Under normal circumstances, adjustable armrests are very common in ergonomic chairs. Generally, lifting armrests are mostly used, and linkage armrests generally appear in high-priced gears. The larger the adjustment range of armrest, can better adapt to the height of the table.

4. Seat Cushion

The seat cushion can generally be divided into sponge and net cloth in terms of material. It is recommended to choose sponge for weight higher than 75 kg, and mesh material for less than 75 kg. In terms of air permeability, mesh fabric is better than sponge. Some ergonomic chairs will add a seat depth adjustment to suit different body types, and ergonomic chairs with seat depth adjustment will have better comfort.

5. Back of the chair

The back of the chair is the soul of the entire ergonomic chair. The biggest difference between an ergonomic chair and an ordinary office chair is its back. Whether a chair's back is comfortable or not depends on the material it uses, its fit with the human spine, and the way it adjusts its tilt. A good chair back can help people get the ultimate relaxation when they are tired.
