    This essay will inform you some tips to choose the correct chair


    1.Choose the chair made for your body size. Most chairs are made to fit around 90 percent of people but those on the ends of the spectrum may not fit. Since there is no “average” person chairs are made in sizes that can be fully adjustable so that they can be made to fit most people. However, if you are very tall or very short then you may need a custom-made chair.
    -Unless you get a custom-made chair, you should get a fully adjustable chair so that you can adjust it properly for your body.


    2.Choose a chair with controls that can be easily operated while sitting. Choosing a chair with controls that are easy to operate while sitting will allow you to adjust your chair completely to your body. You can put yourself in the chair and then adjust all the pieces directly onto your body.

    3.Choose a chair with a seat that can be adjusted for height and tilt. Height is a very important factor when adjusting a chair so it is very important that the height of the chair can be adjusted according to your body and needs. Tilt is also important for allowing correct posture while sitting.

    4.Choose a chair with breathable, non-slippery fabric. You don’t want to get all sweaty while working at your desk nor do you want to slide around too much so these factors are important when choosing a chair.

    5.Choose a comfortable seat that curves towards the floor at the front edge. The curve along the edge will provide more space for your knees and comfort on the backs of your thighs. Additionally, the seat should not put pressure on the back of thighs or knees.

    7.Choose a chair with a stable five-point base. The base should be a five-point system that provides balance and stability while sitting on the chair. The base should be on casters or wheels depending on your preferences.

    8.Choose a chair with armrests that are the right distance apart. You should be able to easily get in and out of the chair but the armrests should be as close as possible while sitting. The closer your elbows stay to your body while sitting, the more comfortable you will be.

    On the other hand, after the correct option for the office chair, there are also has 3 tips to inform you how to adjust your office chair to make your seating more comfortable
    Assess your resting eye level. Your eyes should be level with the computer screen that you are working on. Assess this by sitting on the chair, closing your eyes, pointing your head directly forward and slowly opening them. You should be looking at the center of the computer screen and be able to read everything on it without straining your neck or moving your eyes up or down.
    -If you have to move your eyes down to reach the computer screen then you can place something underneath it to raise its level. For example, you could slide a box under a monitor to raise it to the proper height.
    -If you have to move your eyes up to reach the computer screen then you should try to find a way to lower the screen so that it is directly ahead of you.
    Adjust the armrests of the chair so that they barely touch your elbows when they are at a 90-degree angle. The armrests should just barely touch your elbows when resting your hands on the desk top or computer keyboard. If they are too high then they will force you to position your arms awkwardly. Your arms should be able to swing freely.
    -Resting your arms on the armrests while typing will inhibit normal arm movement and cause extra strain on your fingers and supporting structures.
    -Some chairs will require a screwdriver to adjust the armrests while others will have a knob that can be used to adjust the height of the armrests. Check on the lower portion of your armrests.
    -Adjustable armrests are not available on all chairs.
    -If your armrests are too high and cannot be adjusted then you should remove the armrests from the chair to prevent them from causing pain to your shoulders and fingers.
    Adjust the angle of the backrest to fit your back. 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 that you like to sit.
    -There will be a knob locking the backrest angle in place on the back of the chair. Unlock the backrest angle and lean forwards and backwards while looking at your monitor. Once you reach the angle that feels right lock the backrest into place.
    -Not all chairs will allow you to adjust the angle of the backrest.
