Ergonomic office chairs that are good for your back

Ergonomic office chairs that are good for your back

Ergonomic office chairs that are good for your backIf you are in pain with your back looking for ergonomic office chairs that are good for your back can be a mind numbing exercise.

Ideally what should you be looking for?

The BBC published an article titled “Sitting straight ‘bad for backs’“. This was based on research conducted in Scotland and Canada. They found sitting at a typical 90 degree angle was bad for the back. Spinal disc movement was found to be most pronounced sitting at this angle. This can cause discs to move out of place.

Ideally their research found a relaxed 135 degree angle to be best. Unfortunately such an angle is obviously a little too difficult for desk work! Talk about lying down on the job!

Ergonomic office chairs that are good for your backHowever when looking for ergonomic office chairs that are good for your back this is a key feature you ought to consider.

An ergonomic office chair that will allow you to adjust to multiple angles would be the ideal. At certain times throughout the day you could relax the angle on your chair to take some pressure off your back. Ideal times to do this are perhaps when you are on a telephone call or reading through some paperwork.

Often this feature is called a back tilt or a free-float backrest.

When you are looking at ergonomic office chairs that are good for your back ask your office chair supplier to ensure they have this feature.

If you are looking for an ergonomic office chair with excellent product reviews then this post is for you.

The following are some ergonomic office chair reviews for two popular office chairs.

Ergonomic Office Chair Reviews

Ergonomic Office Chair Reviews1) Ergohuman Mesh Chair with Headrest

This first review is from an online customer. The customer selected an Ergohuman mesh office chair in black with a headrest.

The Ergohuman chair is available with or without a headrest with price adjusted accordingly.

There are also a range of vibrant mesh colour options, like the orange mesh shown. Alternatively you can choose a leather finish, if preferred.

Excellent sales, dispatch and after-sales service

I knew which office chair I wanted from Saxen, but Alison helped me ensure I was buying the right one, even when one consideration was significantly cheaper than the one I was sure I wanted. I didn’t feel pressured or under a time-limit to decide.

Chair arrived within 24 hours of my order and Alistair called me back with 20 minutes of me requesting a quick run through of one aspect of the setup.

Won’t hesitate using Saxen again and confidently recommend as a great supplier.

The Ergohuman chair is a popular customer choice and one that receives many reviews. The second of the ergonomic office chair reviews within this post is also for the Ergohuman. This review has been provided by a McTimoney Chiropractor.

This is a “chair to wear” it is so comfortable because it supports you in all the right places. As a McTimoney Chiorpractor, I am continually on a quest to find things that will help people remain aligned after they have left our practice, to maximize the benefits of the McTimoney treatment. For anybody who sits at a desk or computer, this chair is a must. It has great lumbar support for those with lower back issues, adjustable arms to help with RSI neck and shoulder problems, with most adjustments easily available on its simple single lever control.

Ergonomic Office Chair Reviews2) Enjoy Mesh Office Chair with Headrest

The second of the ergonomic office chair reviews is for the Enjoy. The Enjoy office chair is a popular and affordable ergonomic seating choice.

This next review is from an online customer. He selected an Enjoy for his home office. Once again the Enjoy is available with or without a headrest. There are a range of vibrant mesh colour choices.

The red mesh Enjoy in the image is shown with glides which are available as an alternative to castors. Ideal if you would prefer a chair without wheels. Often customers prefer glides for a home office where they have no requirement for castors perhaps on a carpet or wooden flooring.

New ergonomic chair for home study sorted

I phoned Saxen on Monday having seen the range of chairs on their website, but was unsure which model to go for. Alison was very helpful in helping me to choose the right model, checked stock and had it delivered within 2 days – brilliant service and would definitely use again.
