The health benefits of standing throughout the workday are evident, but the fact remains, seated work is inevitable and even essential for many tasks. Because of this and with respect to the high costs of computer work-related aches and pains, selecting adjustable, ergonomic seating has never been more important. Ergonomic seating encourages proper posture and is an essential part of a healthy workplace.
Selecting the Right Chair
With so many seating options available today, selecting the appropriate ergonomic chair for the worker and the budget can be a daunting task. When purchasing ergonomic seating, be sure to look for these important features:
- Easily adjustable arm supports
- Adjustable seat height and depth
- Adjustable back and lumbar support (dynamic or manual)
