Most would think it is common sense when talking about the subject of how to sit in an office chair considering most of us sit in one for hours on end everyday. While office chairs certainly are easy to use with a little bit of knowledge, most of us are not familiar with how to properly adjust and sit in our chairs in order to avoid pain and injury. When even starting to consider purchasing an office chair it is important to pick out a chair that will allow you to adjust your body and posture to conform ergonomically to you. An ergonomic chair will come with adjustable seat height, back/lumbar adjustments, armrest adjustments, and a tilt lock. While most are not familiar with chair adjustments it is essential to learn about your chair and become properly educated on how to use it before using it just as you would for say a car or bike. However, an office chair will not take nearly as long to figure out as either of the aforementioned.
Next you will want to determine the area the mat is going to be used. You want to have a mat that will cover enough of the floor for you to be able to at the very least roll back to get out of your chair. It is best to use a tape measurer and measure from the desk outward to see how far the mat should extend before your purchase. Most chair mats are sold in multiple sizes to accommodate most desk areas and are large enough for regular uses. Measurements can be found in product spec and information area, so it is good to have your desk areas measurements prepared beforehand. If you typically like to roll your chair from one desk to another or between two areas it is best to get the largest mat possible.
When sitting in an office chair the first area of the chair to focus on is the part you sit on all day, the seat. With your back against the backrest, the seat should support most of the length of your thighs without applying pressure to the back of your knees. Waterfall seats (which most chairs now come with) are ideal for allowing you to sit comfortably and properly. Your seat height should be set so that your thighs are approximately parallel to the ground when your heels are firmly planted on the ground. If it is not possible to have your feet flat on the ground because your work station is too high and not adjustable, a footrest is a good addition to keep your feet flat and body in proper posture. Movement throughout the day is encouraged, so do not feel as if you always need your feet to be planted on the ground. There is generally a lever on the right side if not the left that when pulled up allows you to move either up if your taller or down if you are of shorter stature. A tip for adjustment is to start with your seat at its highest and lower it gradually until it is at a comfortable height. as you cannot usually raise your seat while you are sitting in it.
When purchasing your last office chair you probably were given the option of which type of casters(wheels) you wanted to have included on your chair. Generally there are not too many wheel option, usually the most common are standard carpet casters or an option to upgrade to soft casters that are more gentle on hardwood floors. Usually carpet, no matter which casters your chair comes with, provides too much resistance for office chairs rollers to work well. On carpet, often it is difficult to roll from one place to another because of the amount of pressure being put on the wheels from a person sitting on the chair, in addition to an already resistant surface. Rolling a chair over carpet will also wear down carpet fibers over time; you may find the spots on your carpet where your chair typically rolls over becoming more bare and noticeably different. Chairs also sometimes tend to leave indentations in carpet if used in the same spot that are near impossible to get rid of.
