What features should a good ergonomic office chair have? There are a number of things an ergonomic chair should have, including:

The seat height should be easily adjustable. A pneumatic adjustment lever allows you to adjust the height from about 16 to 21 inches off the floor. Your feet should be flat on the floor and your arms even with the height of the desk.

The seat should have enough width and depth to support you comfortably. 17-20 inches wide is the standard. The depth should be enough so that the user can sit with his or her back against the backrest of the ergonomic office chair while leaving approximately 2 to 4 inches between the back of the knees and the seat of the chair. The forward or backward tilt of the seat should be adjustable.

Lower back support is very important. Sitting for long periods without proper support can lead to slouching (which flattens the natural curve) and strains the structures in the lower spine. An ergonomic chair should have a lumbar adjustment (both height and depth) so each user can get the proper fit to support the inward curve of the lower back.

The backrest of an ergonomic office chair should be 12 to19 inches wide. If it is separate from the seat, it should be adjustable in height and angle. It should be able to support the natural curve of the spine, again with special attention paid to proper support of the lumbar region. If the office chair has the seat and backrest together as one piece, the backrest should be adjustable in forward and back angles, with a locking mechanism to secure it from going too far backward once the user has determined the appropriate angle.

The material on the seat and back of the ergonomic office chair should have enough padding to be comfortable to sit on for extended periods of time. Having a cloth fabric that breathes is preferable to a harder surface.

Armrests should also be adjustable. They should allow the user's arms to rest comfortably and shoulders to be relaxed. The elbows and lower arms should rest lightly, and the forearm should not be on the armrest while typing.
