Chairs, along with shoes and car tires, are underrated. A poor-quality chair will bring out aches and pains that you have not had in years. Over time, poor ergonomics could lead to lasting musculoskeletal problems, such as lasting back pain, poor posture, and even carpal tunnel. As your own boss, you cannot afford to take valuable time off work to deal with back or neck pain.
You can avoid crippling back pain by investing in a quality desk chair. Quality desk chairs usually come with a hefty price tag, but a quality desk chair will last you for years to come. If you would rather not invest the money into a desk chair, let someone else make the investment for you. eSuites, an office rental company in West Palm Beach, has ergonomic-friendly chairs at all our desks.
What to Look for in an Office Chair
Office chairs are not a one size fits all, because everyone is built differently. Therefore, an office chair needs to be fully adjustable, so you can customize it to best fit your body. A comfortable office chair should, at a minimum, consist of the following:
- Adjustable Height
Your neck will thank you for adjusting the height of your desk chair to meet the height of your computer monitor. Ideally, your feet should be planted flat on the ground with your eyes staring into the middle of the computer screen. All our desk chairs at eSuites can have their height adjusted.
- Adjustable Backrest
The back of the chair should be able to swing inwards or outwards. A customizable recline angle is important so your body will be comfortable throughout the workday.
- Breathable Material
Although leather chairs look professional, they are highly uncomfortable for sitting in over long periods. Breathable materials, such as mesh, allow airflow to different areas on your back. Choose a seat with ample padding on the seat cushion as well.
Office chairs are an essential investment because they will dictate the health of your back in the years to come.
