Five Key Adjustments for an Office Chair

The chair is the most frequently used piece of office equipment, and is often not adjusted properly. To work comfortably and avoid injury, watch the video below.

These tips will ensure your chair is adjusted to fit you.

  1. With your feet flat on the floor, adjust the seat height to ensure your knees and hips maintain a 90-degree angle.    
  2. Set the back support tension to allow for some muscle contraction.
  3. The depth of the seat pan should allow a clearance of two to three fingers between the back of the legs and the front of the chair.
  4. Adjust the lumbar support to fit the natural S-curve of your back.
  5. Arm rests should not be used when typing. Adjust the height to just below the elbows.
