Ergonomic Computer Chair
Workstations at workplace are indispensable. Not only at offices but people of all age groups use computers at home too. If you are a person who sits on computer for more than one hour a day then you must be aware of the pains in muscles and bones that make you restless most of the time. There is a need for ergonomic computer chairs that nurse our bodies while we work. What are these ergonomic computer chairs? Why should I purchase one? What are the features of an ergonomic computer chair? When we work at computer for several hours a day pressure is built on our muscles and skeleton. Continuous pressure results in multiple muscle pains.
Moreover, if ignored they can lead to repetitive stress injuries or carpal tunnel syndrome. All these pains and ailments are due to continuous tensing of muscles. Tension in muscles is caused due to bad postures we take during the course of the day. Thus, the need for ergonomic computer chairs arises. These chairs are built keeping user’s comfort above all.
They provide maximum support to spine and back while you recede. Sitting straight is not a good boy posture and it does not show relaxation. Human body is best relaxed when receding backward. Ergonomic computer chairs provide support to upper, middle and lower back while one recedes at work. It is advised that one must rest his or her body on the back of the chair for most relaxed working. The back of an ergonomic compute chair must be a tall one for providing total comfort to the spine. The back should also be flexible enough to permit back and forth movements while you change various postures for reading, writing, typing etc. The arm-rests of the chair must be adjustable so that they could adjust to various body structures. The ideal arm-rests must be adjusted neither to a level that is too high nor too low. The arms are most relaxed in the posture when they are lifted via biceps, parallel to ground facing each other.
The arm rest must be at body level in order to provide support to arms while typing or resting thereby eliminating the tension in muscles. The edge of the seat must be of waterfall design. Straight edges pressurize thighs and cut blood supply to legs if sitting for long hours. The seat must have one inch margin on both sides for adjusting various body postures. A too tight seat would only make you restless while working. Try purchasing a computer chair with wheels that would automatically drag when you reach for objects at distance. This eliminates extensive stretching of muscles during the day. A five point base would be the best for balancing the weight and avoid falling. The clothing of the seat must be easy to maintain and clean. The cloth should not be too soft or too hard as it might prove uncomfortable in long run.
If you are still haunted with the question of why to buy an ergonomic computer chair ask yourself a question, “would you be comfortable working on seat that tenses your muscles?”.
