How to judge whether the office chair fits or not?

The office chair is one of the indispensable equipment in the work and life of modern people. If the office chair is too high, the feet will not reach the ground, or if it is too low, the thighs will be in the air. If you use the computer for a long time, you will have poor sitting posture and back pain. How to judge the fit of an office chair? But how to choose an office chair that suits you? Here are some ways to tell if an office chair is the right fit.

1、Seat height

Seat height is very important because it determines whether your knees and waist can maintain a 90-degree angle. When you're sitting in a chair, your feet should be flat on the floor, and your knees and waist should form a 90-degree angle. If your feet are dangling, or your knees and waist form a sharp angle, then this chair probably isn't for you.

2、Seat depth

The seat depth should allow your knees and lower back to form a 90-degree angle, while still allowing enough room for your hips and thighs to be fully supported. If the seat is too deep, your lower back won't get enough support, and if it's too short, it may put pressure on your thighs.


The purpose of the armrests is to support your arms and allow your shoulders to relax. They should be able to be adjusted to a decent height to avoid tightness in the shoulders. If your arms don't rest naturally on the armrests, then this chair probably isn't for you.

4、Back support

 The back brace should follow the curve of your spine, while also being tall and wide enough to support your back. This can take a toll on your spine if your back isn't properly supported.

5、Headrest and lumbar support

The headrest and lumbar support can provide extra support so that your head and lower back are better supported. They should be able to be adjusted to a decent height and support your head and lower back effectively.

Sitting for a long time usually, do you always have back pain? Maybe the office chair doesn't fit well, take a ruler, stand up and measure it! In short, it is very important to choose an office chair that suits you. Hopefully, these methods will help you judge whether a chair fits you well, making you more comfortable and healthy at work and in your life.
