Selecting Comfortable Tall Office Chair

For tall people, a small chair does not provide any comfort. This becomes more obvious when you are going to sit for long hours doing your office work. A tall office chair is the only best options in these situations. Your office chair consists of a few parts like back, seat, legs etc. Here we write a brief on how to make sure that all these parts are perfectly suitable for your physical height.

The Back: The back of your chair sports your back. The lumber region of your back that is at the lower part should get maximum support. The height adjustable back is better for all sorts of conditions and choices you like for sitting. The slightly carved back allows your back to rest more properly because the back is naturally curved and not straight. The width should be somewhere in between 12” to 19” and with a built-in tilting mechanism for lumber comfort anytime you move or lean back.

The Seat: The seat pan size is important. Check the width and depth to make sure that there is space from 2 to 4 inches at the back of your knees. Your feet must settle on the ground comfortable after sitting but in case your desk is higher or sometimes you need a higher sitting position for some reason, look for an adjustable chair. The edge of the seat must not be a sharp end but it must slide down slowly so as ti relieve the pressure on the back of the thighs.

Armrest: Armrests are important to keep the shoulders in comfortable safe from stress. It is the height and width of the armrests that ensure the comfort of your shoulders and middle part of the upper back.  If you can find a chair that has adjustable or removable armrests, it would more versatile for you. When you want your chair closer to the table you can adjust or fully remove the arms.
