An ergonomic chair is a specialised chair designed to be comfortable and provide the user with support and help the user with correct posture during extended periods of sitting, particularly in office settings.

These types of chairs are referred to as an ergonomic office chairs or ergonomic desk chair.

Ergonomic chairs are designed with adjustable features that allow users to customise their seating position to fit their body type and preferences.

The ergonomic design aims to reduce strain and fatigue on the body, especially the neck, back, and hips, by promoting a more natural and aligned sitting posture.

These chairs typically have the following adjustable features:

Seat height

It is important the seat is height adjustable and your feet are flat on the floor or on a footrest.

Swivel base

Easy to move with no strain on the body

Lumbar support

To support the natural curve of the spine


Adjustable armrests to allow the arms to relax

Backrest angle

Adjustable back to move with your body to keep you comfortable and supported throughout the day.

These are a few, among other features, to ensure optimal ergonomics and promote a healthier sitting experience. An ergonomic chair can help prevent or alleviate discomfort, musculoskeletal issues, and work-related injuries resulting from poor posture or prolonged sitting.
