From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia
chair was strategically designed to increase the productivity of
clerical employees by making it possible for them to remain sitting at
their desks for long periods of time. A swivelling chair with caster
wheels allowed employees to remain sitting and yet reach a number of
locations within their work area, eliminating the time and energy
expended in standing. The wooden saddle seat was designed to fit and
support the body of a sitting employee, and the slatted back and arm
rests provided additional support to increase the employee’s comfort.
Like our modern chairs, many of these models were somewhat adjustable to
provide the maximum comfort and thus the maximum working time.
The culture of the office also demanded that a distinct difference exist between the chairs that the employees used and that of the chief executive. When swivel chairs were widely used, the executive sat in a straight-backed chair with no mobility to demonstrate his status. As design of the office chair eliminated the arms and added cushioned seats, the executive chair became a large, upholstered chair with closed arms and wide, luxurious seats. Even today, the size (both height of the back and width of the seat) of an office chair demonstrates the status of the user.
Everyone knows that people come in many different shapes and sizes. Before buying an office chair, there are a few questions that you should ask yourself. You should decide how you plan to use the chair, as this will be the determining factor for true comfort. Almost all office chairs come with a variety of mechanisms that will control the tilting angle, tension tightness, and a mixture of other controls as well.
Heavy use chair These types of chairs are for those who plan to sitting at their desk for long periods of time. If this is your profession, you should look for a chair with a tilting mechanism and also a fatigue reducing device on the bottom of the chair seat. Because of this device, moving forward or backward will enable the chair move with you in order to provide support. This will help to support your back at all times.
Moderate use chair If you are a typical assistant manager or run back and forth between your desk and other areas throughout the day, you should consider getting an office chair with a knee-tilt mechanism. This allows you to lean back in the chair, yet still keep your feet firmly planted on the ground.
Chairs that don't have this will typically lift your feet when you lean back and fort, which can ultimately lead to discomfort over time. Best of all, these chairs are normally more stylish than the average task chair.
Executive office chair These types of office chairs normally have the same types of mechanical features as moderate use chairs, although they are normally larger, more comfortable, and offer more style for the executive. They are designed for the average executive who is busy running about and spends a good deal of time either on the phone or on a computer. Comfort, style, and status are the key features when buying one of these types of office chairs.
For the average security, an office chair that offers the ultimate in comfort is an ideal purchase. You can purchase a heavy use chair, as you'll probably spend a good amount of time at a desk. If you move around a bit, you may want to go with a moderate use chair, as it will provide the comfort you need when you return back to your desk.
General rules of the office chair.
1. You should make sure your feet rest comfortably on the floor, and your thighs should be fully supported and placed square on the floor.
2. Your back should be supported comfortably. The angle that's formed by your upper legs and torso should be between 90 and 105 degrees.
3. When you tilt back it should be easy, although it shouldn't be too easy.
4. The desk chair should be customized to permit frequent changes in posture.
