Posture chairs are steadily gaining in popularity with office and home users alike. People are becoming more aware of the importance of a good sitting posture and the health benefits that can be achieved when you proactively address how you sit as you go about your daily work duties. This awareness has become more pronounced of late due to the increasing number of hours we are required to spend at our work stations.
Sitting in the one position for prolonged periods can place pressure on the lower back which after a number of weeks / months or years can start to weaken the affected area. Repetitively placing pressure on the affected area may eventually lead to the muscles becoming tender or they may begin to ache and pain the longer pressure is applied. Unfortunately, many people are reporting symptoms of chronic back pain which can all be linked to the poor sitting posture practiced on a daily basis. Back pain is a leading cause of employee absenteeism which can have a negative impact on the overall productivity of the company.
It is important to remember that each individual has a different body shape so what may work for one person may not necessarily have the same positive effects for another person. Therefore, it is vital that you choose a chair that will give you optimal support without compromising on overall comfort. For example, if you are tall you should invest in a posture chair which has extra support at the back as the average office chair will only support the lower back so your upper back and shoulders are at risk of developing strain related injuries.
Choosing the correct posture chair will reduce or completely eliminate strain on the lower back, the area of worst strain while sitting. The correct ergonomic chair works by spreading the strain out over more of the body making it easier for the different body parts to absorb the pressure.

1. Durable material and workmanship quality
