What is an ergonomic chair?

Ergonomic chairs are specifically designed with adjustment features in order to provide appropriate posture and spine support. An ergonomic chair should have a lumbar adjustment to support the lower back's inward curve, which then adjusts the sitting posture, improving back pain along the way. Our office ergonomic chairs range has rotatable lumbar support to expand seat depth for every type of body shape.

Are ergonomic chairs comfortable?

Comfort is an intrinsic aspect of our ergonomically designed chair. Our ergonomic design revolves around comfort, this is done by adjustable features that allow workers from home or office to maintain the right posture while being productive. The benefits of the most comfortable office chair can include a more productive workflow, correct posture and reduced stress on the spine, neck and hips.

Do I need an ergonomic chair?

Yes, you do! Few things are more important than having a comfortable chair to sit on and we like to think that we have the best ergonomic chair in Australia. 

Living a sedentary lifestyle can have damaging effects on your posture and overall health should you be practising bad posture. The least you could do to alleviate this is to have a chair that supports your back. Non-ergonomic chairs are non-adjustable and stay in a fixed position. This means you cannot adjust and align your height to your workstation which limits comfort and causes many back problems after prolonged amounts of time sitting in that position. 

Your back will thank you for choosing to buy an ergonomic chair. Check out our standup desks that help compliment our range of ergonomic chairs so as to ensure a comfortable and posture perfect workstation.

What should I look for in an ergonomic chair?

An ergonomic chair is specifically designed to promote good posture, support the body, and prevent discomfort. For a chair to be ergonomic it must be adjustable and should have a lumbar adjustment for both depth and height so each user can get the proper fit to support their shoulders, spine, and hips. Our ergonomic chairs are equipped with double-woven mesh, an aluminium base and eight points of adjustment. Our design allows you to do a 132-degree tilt which means you can recline in seconds for a quick look at the ceiling before back to work.

How do I set up my ergonomic chair?

For assembly, our ergonomic chairs are quite simple to assemble and won't take you much time. Our package of easy to assemble office chairs comes in with a QR code with assembly instructions and all the tools needed for the assembly. Please refer to our product assembly page for more details. 

How do I adjust my ergonomic chair?

Our range of adjustable office chairs features six to eight ergonomic adjustments. Advice from us would be to:

Adjust the seat height

Height is the most important point of an ergonomic adjustment. First, stand in front of your chair and adjust the height of the seat pan to just below your kneecaps. Now sit in your chair with your back firmly against the chair back and adjust the seat cylinder to the proper height. You want your feet to be flat on the ground with your knees close to a 90-degree angle.

Adjust the backrest

Our design allows you to have a 132-degree tilt on the backrest. The backrest should be at an angle that supports you while sitting in your preferred posture. You should not have to lean back to feel it nor lean farther forward than you like to sit.

Adjust the armrest

Sit as close to your desk as is comfortable with your upper arms parallel to your spine. Let your hands rest on the surface of the workstation or your computer keyboard, whichever you will use more often. They should be at a 90-degree angle.

Adjust the headrest

Our Ergo Pro design is equipped with a headrest that is adjustable to help provide support and comfort to the head and neck while in a reclined position. 

Adjust the lumbar support

Adjustable lumbar support is a feature most people seek out when looking for an ergonomic chair. The lumbar support should fit right in the natural curve of your spine, typically at the small of your back directly above your belt line.

Adjust the seat pan depth

You should have a gap about the size of your clenched fist between the front edge of the seat cushion and the back of your knee when seated. Lock that position in place.
