An office chair should offer you a comfortable seat and make working at your desk as comfortable as possible. That is why you should pay attention to the following features when buying:
Adjustability: Choose an office chair that can be adjusted in all important directions. For a comfortable sitting position, the backrest, the height, the inclination and, depending on the model, the headrest must be easily adjustable according to your needs.
Armrests: The armrests are also important for a good sitting position. They ensure a comfortable and pleasant arm position when they are not on the desk. You should also make sure that the armrests are height-adjusted.
Height: The seat height must be adjustable so that your thighs and legs form a right angle when you are seated. Then you have found the ideal seat height and can work in a relaxed and comfortable manner.
Synchro-mechanics: In an office chair with synchromechanics, both the inclination of the backrest and the inclination of the seat level change as soon as you lean back. This gives you better dynamics when moving in the chair and a permanently adjusted setting of the sitting position.
Remember to take sitting breaks
No matter how comfortable the seat is, it is important that you keep in mind sitting for too long may be harmful. It's no longer a secret, but how bad the effects can really be is underestimated by most people. Slight tension in the neck, slight pulling in the shoulders or occasional headaches are ignored and dismissed as unimportant. However, these are only the first symptoms as studies have shown that improper sitting poses some health risks. Develop the habit of sitting upright, standing up and stretching every hour or so and spreading your weight about the chair.
Even in a good sitting position, you shouldn't stay in one position for too long because the strain increases over time. Experts therefore recommend that you keep moving while sitting and that you keep adjusting and changing your posture. Sometimes position the backrest a little further back, sometimes forwards again. This is referred to as dynamic sitting. Even a crooked back is allowed as long as it is only for a few minutes while you rest from the fatigue of sitting up straight. Learn more here - Bureaustoelen.
