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.
When determining the correct height to have your office chair at, first make sure to place it in front of the desk or work area you will be spending most of your time at. If you have a keyboard tray installed underneath your desk, you will also need to take that into consideration when deciding the correct height your office chair should be at. Keep in mind that you will want to have a good amount of clearance between your keyboard tray or desk and your thighs to enable you to work more comfortably. If your computer chair comes with arms you will also want to take that into consideration as well especially if they are not height adjustable.
Schools, churches and other organizations often find that purchasing the chairs that are needed for these special occasions is a more economical choice than renting when needed. If you purchase the items, remember that purchase of the correct storage and moving cart makes it much easier to set up and store the chairs with less damage. Stacking chairs are another popular seating option. However, stacking chairs take more room and are more difficult to transport. If the chairs are always used in the same room and storage is not a problem, they may be a better option. Either type of these portable chairs works well to furnish a multipurpose room. That room is equally at home as an auditorium or a class room. It can serve as an area for a dance or a lecture hall. Storing the chairs makes the room available for standing room only events.
One problem some people seem to find with leather is the tendency for it to put a shine on your clothing, especially for those that wear expensive outfits or business suits to work. You may find that your clothes wear out more quickly than before if you were sitting in a fabric or mesh chair. If you work in an office that does not have air conditioning or gets really hot in temperature, especially during the summer months, you may find that your leather office chair will cause you to sweat and perspire excessively. However, some top quality leathers do come with a breathable finish which will help reduce or even eliminate this problem.
The backrest angle should be set so that you feel the backrest while you are in your preferred sitting position. You should not have to lean back to feel it, nor should it force you farther forward when you are sitting. Your back rest angle should allow, however, to move forward and backward with added pressure while still providing you with lumbar/back support. Usually, underneath your chair there is a knob that allows you to adjust the backrest to the amount of pressure you want. After finding that perfect spot make sure to lock your backrest angle to ensure it stays in place. Usually by pulling the lever up you can unlock the back angle and pushing down locks it into place.
The first step towards picking your new chair mat would be to determine the area where your chair mat is going to be used. If you use your chair on a carpet surface, plastic chair mats are a decent option with the downfall being they sometimes crack under pressure and do not last too long. If you use your chair on a hard surface a plastic chair mat will not work for you as they generally slip away and do not stay in place. A bamboo chair mat is always a great option to use. Although more expensive in price, not only does it work on almost every surface due to its non-slip felt back it is also much more elegant than a traditional vinyl/plastic mat. Incredibly durable, bamboo chair mats are designed to last ten plus years, can be rolled up and are easy to store. Bamboo chair mats are a viable option for both carpet and hardwood floors.
