Important Features of Ergonomic Office Chairs

7 Important Factors To Consider When Choosing An Ergonomic Chair

Most of us typically spend a great amount of time sitting down. This position often adds stress to your spine. It is important to choose an ergonomic chair that supports your lower back to avoid the development of back problems.


  1. Adjustable seat height

Seat height should be easily adjustable. An adjustment lever is the easiest way to do this. An average seat height of about 16 to 21 inches off the floor should work for most people. Adjust your seat height such that your thighs are horizontal and your feet touch the ground to avoid any strains on your muscles and joints.

  1. Suitable seat width and depth

The seat should be wide enough for you to feel comfortable. The standard seat is around 17 to 20 inches wide. The depth of the seat should be enough such that there are approximately 2 to 4 inches of space between the back of your knees and the seat of the chair.

  1. Lumbar support

The lower back support of an ergonomic chair is very important. The lumbar spine has an inward curve, and sitting for long periods without support for this curve tends to lead to the flattening of the natural curve, or what is commonly known as slouching. This strains the structures in the lower spine and could cause backaches and pains. An ergonomic chair should have a lumbar adjustment so that users can get a proper fit to support the inward curve of the lower back.

The V1 ergonomic chair enables adjustment of the lumbar support to suit its different users.

V1 Ergonomic Chair Adjustable Backrest



  1. Backrest

The backrest should be able to support the natural curve of the spine, again with special attention paid to proper support of the lumbar region. The backrest should also be adjustable in angles, with a locking mechanism to secure it at a comfortable angle for the users. Most of our ergonomic chairs has the backrest recline feature.

  1. Seat material

The material on the office chair seat and back should be sufficiently padded for an extended period of sitting.

BG64B & BG71 chair seats are designed to ensure comfort for its users with the soft seat yet ensure stability with its sturdy frame.

  1. Armrests

The armrests should allow the user's elbows and arms to rest comfortably without straining the shoulders. Most of our ergonomic chair has adjustable armrest in height and angles.

  1. Swivel

Swiveling is a good additional feature that an ergonomic chair should have. This allows users to easily rotate to reach different areas of the desk without straining any muscles.

Our BG64B and BG71 has this unique dynamic mechanism with a 10° seat swing angle. This empowers the movement of the user's 360 joints and more than 700 pieces of muscle, allowing you to move effectively with the backrest sway. The chair responds to you even as you reach for items on the ground, effectively ensuring that you would not strain any muscles and injure yourself in the process.
