Best Ergonomic Office Chairs For Back Pain
Last Updated: 24th October 2016
In a world where almost everyone sits on a computer chair these days, it is becoming more and more important that the chair you use is ergonomic not only because poor posture can lead to upper and lower back problems along with neck pain.
This guide will help you determine which chair to get based on how much money you have to spend. Please note though, just because a chair is the best in a £100 bracket doesn’t mean that it will be what you need to stop back pain from poor posture. For those types of problems, more expensive chairs are recommended.
For chairs at this price range, they are all pretty much the same. Just look for a chair that has plenty of wheels so it wont tip, possibly neck support and good cushion. Something like an AmazonBasics chair.
Now we are getting into the types of chairs with more specific aims. A chair with neck support is a must, arm rests would be great as not all desks are large enough to rest your arms on. Proper back support will be doable in this price range too. The ideal chair in this range is the Ikea Markus
Moving into the next range, chairs in this category have improved quality and are known to last a little longer. There are still manufacturers that charge these prices for chairs that have lower quality parts but are still much better than their £0 – £200 counterparts.
One of the most popular chairs in this range is the ANCHEER Ergonomic Chair. It offers a fire resistant mesh, good quality aluminium alloy legs, adjustable arm and back rests and also offers a sliding seat if you have longer legs.
In this range, it opens up some very good back support chairs using high quality materials. In this range, the quality of all the chairs will be roughly the same so the best option is to go for looks, adjustments available and comfort. Say welcome to the Ergohuman Office Chair. It offers:
- Seat Height Control
- Seat Depth Adjustment
- Backrest Tilt Tension Control
- Backrest Tilt Angle Adjustment
- Backrest Height Adjustment
- Armrest Height Adjustment
- Armrest Angle Adjustment
- 10 Year Manufacturers Guarantee on the frame
- 5 years on Mechanism and Armrests
- 3 years on Castors, Gas Lift and Mesh
This is where you can buy the best of the best. There is a good choice in this range as everyone wants to be “The Best” but in my opinion, if you are going for excellent ergonomics, adjustability and breathability then a Herman Miller Embody Chair is the chair for you. They are made to be very durable and include excellent warranty. Read the brochure for more information.
