When workstations go wrong, the first place people typically look is their chair. Providing
an ergonomic chair does not benefit the user if the user does not know how to use and
adjust the chair. There are some basic guidelines to look for in a suitable office chair:
1. Provides lumbar support.
2. Height can be adjusted.
3. Width is appropriate for the individual using the chair.
4. Backrest is adjustable.
5. Seat depth – well-fitted or adjustable.
6. Adjustable or removable armrests.
7. Five-prong base.
8. Breathable fabric.
9. Well-fitted – small, medium or large chair.
