Finding a comfortable office chair that will help to relieve back pain can be a difficult task. We have put together some things to consider before selecting your next
chair so that you can find the best support for your back.
Does the office chair offer good support when you recline?
It is important to find out how much support the office chair can provide when reclined. Individuals work differently when completing tasks, so you need to search
for a chair that will adapt to your working style.
Can the lumbar support system move with you?
A lumbar support system that is flexible and moves with you can be very important, especially if you move around a lot.
What is the material of the lumbar system?
Some materials are more flexible than others and others will focus on particular areas of the back. Whether the lumbar focuses on a certain area can be beneficial,
but only if this is an area that will bring you comfort.
Remember, our needs are individual to us, so it is important to ask yourself these questions before purchasing your next office chair.
What is the material?
Finding a material that is soft and breathable will also be beneficial for your skin. When it comes to lumbar support, typically, either silicone resin or memory foam is used.
Cushions made with silicone resin may not be as comfortable or soft, however, they are durable and breathable. On the other hand, cushions made with foam padding can
be softer but may need cleaning more often.
Is it adjustable?
You may need to make adjustments to the positioning of the back support throughout the day so you will want to find a product that allows you to do so.
Will it be secure?
If you need to move around the office frequently, back support cushions can shift up or down, meaning you will need to re-adjust it almost every time you get up.
This can be very frustrating, so it is worth finding support that can securely be strapped to the chair.
