How to choose your office chair
For many people, a large part of their work day is spent sat in an office chair. As well as being a piece of furniture, these chairs are much more. They become a work tool that infuences our efficiency, our creativity, our well-being and our health. The designer Marcelo Alegre from Alegre Design and the director of Innovation from the Valencia Biomechanics Institute (IBV), Rosa Porcar, give us tips on how to make the right decision.
Investing in a good office chair is important
The office chair is a work tool in constant and continuous use, which is why it is so important to perfectly adapt it to your needs and your work.
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.
