    From my explanation, you may have a question, whether the chair is very expensive. But that depends on what you look at as expensive. A well made chair should last 8-15 years and over that time, the foam should be still supportive, the chair height should stay in place and the chair should be solid as opposed to rickety. Some of the low end chairs have seats that tend to flatten like pancakes and you end up sitting on the wood which has a major affect on posture and circulation.  Well, I think if you are an executive, you also should own one Ergonomic chair for the reasons as follow.

    Pain Relief


    Ergonomic chairs are used mainly to help prevent and relieve pain. Without the proper support provided by an ergonomic chair, extended sitting may result in lower back pain or muscle fatigue and exhaustion. This can inhibit your work production at home or at the office. In addition to pain, sitting in the wrong type of chair for an extended period of time can actually cause a variety of health problems or worsen existing health conditions. Prevent pain and problems by investing in an ergonomic chair.

    Proper Circulation

    Allowing blood to flow properly through your body is crucial, and the wrong chair can inhibit it. Most ergonomic chairs allow the seat position and height of the chair to adjust to the length of your legs. It’s important that your legs stay at a 90 degree angle to ensure proper circulation, so pick an ergonomic chair that will let you adjust the height and angle of your seat.

    Support

    Your body has its own unique curves and areas in need of support and cushioning. It’s important that you choose a chair that can give you the support you need. Many ergonomic chairs are made from mesh, which will automatically mold to the contours of your body.

    Just have a serious consideration. If you are also a workaholic and your job requires long time seating. A good office chair shows great importance. Now, let me tell you 5 features to judge a good ergonomic chair.

    One: Seat width and depth adjustment

    Adjusting the depth of your chair will determine how much support your thighs receive. To check the depth of your seat, sit as far back as possible in your chair. The space you need between the chair and the back of your knees is roughly three fingers wide. An ergonomic chair will have a seat slider so that you can achieve this easily. Ergonomic chairs are often built to order and your DSE assessor might suggest a different sized seat pad width so that you can sit comfortably. In the same vein, your assessor might specify additions like a coccyx cut out or memory foam seat to reduce pressure on the base of the spine.

    Two: Seat height adjustment

    An ergonomic chair will have a gas lift so that you can adjust the height you are sitting at. The right height means that your forearms are in-line with your desk; if your feet do not remain flat on the floor in this position then you will need a footrest.

    Three: Fully adjustable armrests

    Armrests support the shoulders and prevent strain throughout the arm. They should be adjusted so that there is a comfortable 90° angle through the forearm when the shoulders are relaxed. Ergonomic armrests usually have width adjustment so that they can remain close to the body. The top of the armrest might also swivel so that you can sit as close to the desk as possible.

    Four : Five star base

    If you are in an office of 5 or more screen users, office chairs must have a five-star base. Usually made in high-grade plastic or polished aluminum, these prevent the chair from tipping and keep your feet safely on the ground when you adjust your posture. The castors on the base will vary based on your job specification and environment: If your office has carpet, soft floor castors will compensate for this and if you are on a tall lab stool you will most likely have a chair with break loaded castors to stop the chair from slipping away from you.

    Five: Back support

    The back support of an ergonomic chair is height adjustable so that it can offer maximum support to the lumbar region of the spine. The shape and fabric can vary based on the ergonomic principle that it is trying to achieve but all offer a good level of support to match the contours of the spine. If the chair has a mechanism built in such as a tilt mechanism, this also means your spine remains supported whilst you move throughout the day.
