Sitting in a chair is a position that adds stress to the structures in the backbone. A well-designed chair allows the user to sit in a balanced position. Buying an ergonomic chair is a good beginning but it must be combined with a proper posture to maximize the benefits.
The selection of suitable and task chairs is a critical step in preventing health problems for people working in a sitting position. Several basic concepts should be considered such as the seat height, width, depth, materials, and many more.
Since choosing the best ergonomic office chair is confusing and time-consuming, here is a list that will definitely help you. Below are the top four best ergonomic office chairs to buy according to The Independent.
1. Herman Miller Sayl
This is the chair used by the British School of Osteopathy for their training center. Inspired by the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, it combines industry-leading ergonomic design heritage with a great price – and you avoid a sweaty back thanks to the webbing. Available in several striking colors, the Herman Miller Sayl offers full adjustability, lumbar support, and great value for money from this world-famous office seating manufacturer.
2. Kloeber Mera Klimastuhl
Arguably the most innovative office chair available, this one allows individual temperature control via its built-in heating and cooling system, using technology from the car industry – and it works a treat. This means reduced energy consumption, as well as calming those too hot or too cold arguments in the office – and it works a treat for sore backs too. Excellent adjustability of the seat depth, height and armrests make this as comfortable as any normal office chair, along with excellent support – all in a very stylish package.
3. John Lewis Murray Ergonomic Office Chair
You get a lot of bang for your buck with this affordable and stylish office chair that boasts mesh backing for breathability, comfort and good lumbar support, including for larger folk. All the elements of the seat have a manual adjustment, including seat height, depth, armrest height and an adjustable tilt lock backrest. But you have to assemble it yourself and the arms to move around a bit too easily, so be careful not to shift them out of your ideal position by mistake.
4. Herman Miller Aeron
Another one from the most famous office chair brand in the world, this one has an iconic design and an industry-leading 12-year warranty. Recently re-mastered, its design now has eight zones of differing tensions for precision comfort – each one designed to ergonomically suit different parts of the body. Its instantly recognizable mesh pellicle is breathable and easily adjustable and unusually, it comes in three different sizes to cover the whole range of user sizes. No wonder that when Homer Simpson visited Heaven, he found God sat in an Aeron chair.
