If you work in an office and are mostly deskbound you will sit for about 1,500 hours a year! With all these hours of sitting it is no wonder that wrong chair causes problems for our bodies. Unfortunately many of us have experienced this sometime in our working lives… an unsuitable chair that leads to poor sitting postures, discomfort, even injury.
Choosing the right chair is more complex than most people realize. So they will buy a chair without the right knowledge and without correct advice.
In reality, it is just as important to sit on the right chair for your body as to wear the right fitting shoes for your feet.
Chairs come in different seat sizes. It is very important that the seat is not too short or long for your legs. Ideally a chair should have about 2–3 fingers widths between the front edge of the seat and the back of the knees.
