A poor chair can have harmful consequences

Back health, cervical and lumbar tensions
are closely related to posture in the workplace.
But there's more. When you're sitting in a chair, your feet must touch the ground. If you are too tall, circulation problems may occur. 

If, on the other hand, the chair is too low, too much weight is on the buttocks. By adjusting the chair to an appropriate height
and distributing the weight correctly, we will be able to sit longer and more comfortably.

It is quite important to choose an ergonomic chair which make you feel good and also it has an impact on your well-being.
