So far, most are familiar with the term Ergonomics and understand that ergonomic furniture is more healthy for the body as it helps to maintain more natural positions that reduce stress to the bones, muscles and nerves in the body. But chair companies and ergonomists often thrive on terms related to the ergonomic chairs designs and features that the regular consumer may not understand. Here is a list of some terms you may need to know.
County Support. This is one of the most important features of an ergonomic chair. This device is designed to prevent as much as possible the backbone braid that occurs most of the time when it is sitting. Lumbar support usually supports a gentle curve in the backrest form and allows the user to sit comfortably for a longer period of time.
Backrest height adjustability. With this feature, the user can change the height of the support leg in the backrest, although this feature is often interpreted as the ability to change the height of the entire backrest. This feature holds preferences of different users regarding where and how the lane support curve contacts the back.
Lumbar Depth Adjustability. This feature affects the size and sometimes the firmness of the lumbar support curve in a seat backrest. Like the backrest height adjustability, it accommodates different body types and preferences of the user.
Height Adjustable Armrests. This feature, as the name suggests, allows the user to adjust the height of the armrests to fit the persons body, helping people avoid using excessive or low armrests, which can lead to elevated shoulders and press the underside of the elbows and forearms, or would require the user to slumber or lean over to one side to use armrests. This feature also enables the armrest to move out of the way during certain activities that may require a lot of arm movement.
Width adjustable armrest. With this function, the user can change the distance between the armrests, not the armrests themselves. For an ergonomic office experience, the user does not want a chair with armrests too close together, as it will spread the elbows and lead the wrists to bend sideways during activities such as typing. This puts the user at the wrist of the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Padded armrest. This feature is recommended because it prevents unpleasant pressure on the underside of the forearms and elbows.
Backrest angle adjustment. With this function, the user can change the angle of the backrest relative to the seat angle. The most common way of adjusting the backrest is the adjustment and adjustment mechanism, but it can also be adjusted by bending material or springs in the shelf of the chair. The backrest angle adjustability allows the chair to support different degrees of tilt to the body, which in turn transmits a certain upper body weight to the backrest of the chair and relieves the lower bodys intervertebral discs. This feature also increases the angle between the torso and thigh, which causes the lower part to sit inward. This inward curve in the back also relieves the pressure on the disc.
Chair page or border. This is a similar function for the backrest angle adjuster, but not the same. The slope or tilt of the chair changes the angle of the entire chair seat relative to the floor. There are a couple of ways this feature can work. One is a column lane which turns the chair on top of the base post and lifts the knees slightly while the back falls down. The other is called a knee slope, where the pivot point is forward in the post closer to the knee. In a knee height chair, the knee height is negligible, but the back drops more than in a proud chair.
Seat height adjustability. With this feature, the user can adjust the height of the chair so that your feet can rest comfortably on the floor or footrest while maintaining optimum distance from the desktop and keyboard. Pneumatic adjustable features are easier to use than mechanical adjustable chairs.
Seat depth Adjustability. Chairs with the function can change the seat to rear depth ratio with either a backrest inward adjustability or a sliding seat plate. For smaller people, a shorter seat plate is preferable to allow the person to use the backrest while a deeper gives more stability to higher individuals.
Seat panel angle setting. This feature generally refers to the possibility that the user must change the seat forward angle. This allows them to choose a fixed angle, rather than a free floating slope. This feature usually allows for a forward slope, where the thighs lean downwards. The main purpose of forward slope is to open the angle between the trunk and the thighs, induce lordos and reduce the disc pressure.
