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.
When these are used as task chairs, they usually lack arm rests. On the other hand, if they are to be used as desk chairs, they can be made with armrests and are now more suitable for works of longer duration. Because ergonomic task chairs are the cheapest among all the other types of ergonomic office chairs, you can also expect that this would give the least support. Therefore, this might be the least likely to be recommended for long sitting hours.
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.
If you think our ordinary task chairs would not go beyond ordinary, think again. Manufacturers have also made ergonomic task chairs which are in fact, one of the most widely used ergonomic office chairs. These can also be and are commonly used as desk chairs because they are cheaper than the other kinds of ergonomic work chairs. They are usually characterized by low and mid back heights and have cushioned seats that are on the harder side.
Perhaps the greatest advantage to purchasing an armless office chair over a chair with arms is the price discount you will receive. Armless chairs will always be less in price over a chair with arms because the cost for adding a set of arms to a chair always results in an increase in price. Equipping your office with armless chairs over chairs with arms is a viable choice for those on a budget as it will end up saving you hundreds of dollars in the long run. Chair arms are one of the first parts to break on an office chair because of the repeated pressure that is applied to them throughout the chair’s lifetime. If your chair is even still under warranty when the part breaks, it can be quite time-consuming to request replacement parts; sometimes the process of receiving a new part can take up to a few weeks from the time the request is placed with the manufacturer. If your chair is not under warranty, then a new chair will need to be purchased adding to the cost which could have been saved had you purchased an armless office chair.
