Carolina Lee. Chairs. September 23rd , 2017.
Office chairs are very important. We may not realize it but most of the time, we sit on these office chairs for longer hours than we sleep on our beds. Am I right or am I right? We stay in our offices for around 8 hours and those are the few days when we do not need to work overtime. We actually have no choice but to put importance to our work chairs.
Often times while you are working you may find your chair’s armrests get in the way. Whether you are sitting down in your chair or standing up to take a break, arm rests always tend to get in the way. If your workstation is ergonomically set up to have a keyboard tray installed underneath your desk, having a chair with armrests can be even more troublesome in trying to find a way to fit them beneath both your desk and your keyboard tray. Having armrests on a chair will also defeat the ergonomic benefits of using a keyboard tray because it will make you type in an unnatural position leading to strain on your wrists. Sliding into an armless chair is effortless, and getting in and out of your chair will no longer seem like a chore. Reaching for things near or on your desk will also be much simpler without arms being in the way.
One of the first things we usually consider before buying an work chair is whether it is comfortable or not. This is important because we are going to sit on that chair for almost the entire day everyday and who would want to sit on something uncomfortable for that long? It has also been found that comfortable seats can affect our work productivity.
Leather: Most \"leather\" that you will find when searching for dining chairs will actually be a fabric-backed vinyl. Due to the extra time and cost required for real leather seating, the price of a dining chair will be about $50 to $100 more than a comparable vinyl but will also last longer and feel softer to sit on. Vinyl is prone to cracking and tearing more so than fabric or leather. The main benefit vinyl provides is being a significantly more affordable option to leather and looks has an almost identical appearance to leather, at a much cheaper price.
A new ergonomic chair does not come at a cheap price, which is why you need to do your research and make sure that you know exactly what you need to keep you sitting comfortably. Make sure to look at the chair’s warranty, if the chair is warranted for only a few years this is a good indication of how long the chair will last you. Contrarily, if a chair has a ten-year or lifetime guarantee this is a good indication that the chair is built to last and withstand tough working conditions. You may need to put a little extra money than you hoped to get your ultimate ergonomic chair but in the long run it will save you from visits to the chiropractor, money spent on having to replace a bad chair, and aches and pains caused by sitting in a poorly designed chairs.
