We spent most of our time sitting in a chair – especially whom work in offices. This work chair plays a key role in your confrontation, health and well-being.
It is important, when choosing the perfect chairs for your office, to think about who will use them and what functions the future user of the chair will perform.
The ideal is to choose ergonomic chairs with as many adjustments as possible (height, inclination, etc.), because an adjustable chair allows customization to the user, giving them the possibility to adjust to their real needs and their body. The following adjustments are recommended: seat height; height of the backrest and the support of the arms.
And wheels in the chairs, have you thought of that? They can make a difference and are often ignored. What about the materials? And the finishes? Pre-evaluate, when possible, the materials with which the chair components are manufactured.
High quality materials provide greater strength and durability, and may have a direct impact on price.
One of the most common mistakes of choosing the office chair is to take into account only the price. And what memory do you have of the last really cheap chair you bought? Was the experience good? A good quality chair will have a high lifespan, ensuring well-being to your team as well as a good return on the investment to the company.
Some tests are also recommended, even with your employees, when possible. Sit and test for a few minutes, tinker with various settings and simulate conditions of use in the workplace, checking the ergonomics, the quality of the components, the finish and the comfort. Ask questions and ask the manufacturer or distributor for support. Sales teams or office furniture consultants who are market leaders should have specialized people to assist you.
Just jokingly and with a little analogy – have you realized how important the mattress where you sleep in has? The chair we use in the office should be ergonomic and with great quality considering some of the tips that we present in this article. We are then very picky when it comes to buying a mattress, but also we should be for the chair, because we may spend more time in it than in bed.
