Components Of An Office Chair

By David Shelton

Office chairs are present in every workplace – be it in the CEO’s room or just in cubicles, inside the conference rooms or at the cafeteria. These chairs’ main function is to make you sit down at your most convenient yet healthy way.

For every office chair used in your workplace, harm and damage may go along with it. But thanks to science and ideas brought out, all these negative things can be prevented. People will also be knowledgeable about office chairs as not just an example of furniture.

The theory of ergonomics is preferred for office chairs so as to provide you with relief and security. Here are a few important reminders to consider when you want to look for one.

Height of the Chair

The height of a chair that is user-friendly hence can be simply adjusted, is one quality your office chair should have. It is then necessary for your chair to include a pneumatic adjustment lever. This equipment enables your chair to be off the floor, 16 – 21 inches away.

The height of the chair should not be overly high or overly low. It should be enough to fit the tallness of the table or desk. This is also important for the user so you will not slouch or hurt yourself while sitting.

The spine’s natural “double C” comes out and your body gets an upright support. This can be attained when you sit with your knees lower than your hips.

Width and Depth of the Chair

The width of the office chair is approximately 17 to 20 inches. How wide the chair is, would depend on the shape or the size of the person using it. For its depth, you can measure it from the tip of the seat straight to the back of the chair.

Between the chair’s seat and your knees, there must be a 2-4 inch difference. Check if the chair’s depth is large enough for you to rest your back.


If you want to sit with your shoulders resting conveniently, armrests that can be adjusted will help you with what you need. This goes well with your elbows and arms too.


A 12-19 inch backrest on the office chair must be adjustable so you can freely move around your workplace. Your back has to have all the protection it needs.


An added consideration for your office chair is a swivel. This makes your moving around your cubicle or your specific place in the office easier. This is attached at the bottom of the chair. You can enjoy working at your office having to also enjoy these add-ons to your office chairs.
