Ergonomic Desk Chairs - Key Features That Helps You Keep Good Spine Health

When you start feeling tired all the time after spending 14 hour work day weeks on end and no amount of sleep on your weekends seem to help relieve your tiredness and lethargy. You must be wondering about the reason why your body is feeling this way.

The key reason is probably the bad posture you have been maintaining while seated working away hunched over your paperwork or computer at your work station. Indeed, continuous bad sitting positioning can single-handedly cause you back and neck pains and prolong numbness on your limbs as well as strained muscles. With the help of ergonomic desk chairs, you could delay or break the vicious effects of long working hours and bad sitting postures.

Here are some key points to optimize your ergonomic desk chairs. Before adjusting your chair, you should first set the preferred height of your work desk. This is defined mainly by the type of work you do, eg, drafting or data entry would require very different heights of both your work desks and work chairs.

Once you have determined this, you can start adjusting the ergonomically designed chair based on your very own physical proportions. Here is a list of key pointers to note.

When sitting on the chair, you need to be as close to the desk as possible such that your upper arms are aligned with your spine. A rule of thumb is that your elbow should be at right angles while resting on the desktop.

Your working eye level also serves as a gauge for getting the right height for your office desk and chair. Your eye level should be aimed at the center of the computer screen, otherwise you are easily susceptible to neck strain.

Foot rest is one key aspect that many users tend to ignore. The distance from under your thigh to the edge of your office chair should be at least a few fingers wide. Otherwise, you need to install makeshift footrest for better ergonomics.

Most ergonomic desk chairs have arm rests and they should be positioned to enable you to lift your arms at the shoulders. They are critical in reducing the stress on your neck and upper body as well as preventing you from bad slouching posture.

If you have a large seat pans, the ergonomic desk chairs might just prove to be too deep for you. If so, you can move the back rest forward or if you have a fix back rest, attach a lumbar support pillow to the lower part of your back rest. The lumbar support pillow is a critical part of the anatomy of a ergonomically designed chair, which helps to reduce the stain on your back naturally and easily without much conscious effort on your part.
