Why you should consider an ergonomic chair…
People who sit for long periods of time run a high risk of lower back damage, and these risks only increase with age.
Selecting a suitable chair is a critical step in preventing health problems.
With the ergonomic approach, sitting is viewed as a specific, specialized activity which is influenced by the way that a sitting person interacts with working environments.

Does the chair allow the user to lock the seat inclination and backrest rake angle in different positions?
Does the chair allow the user to adjust the seat depth?
Can you change the height of the seat?

Can you adjust the height of the armrest?
Does the chair offer an optional headrest?
