Based on our many years of experience working with many ergonomists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, we highly recommend the following set up suggestions below to achieve the best possible seating experience:
- Seat height: Carefully adjust the chair’s seat height and when the elbows rest just slightly greater than 90 degrees on their work surface, then you have achieved the correct seat height adjustment. If the occupant’s feet aren’t flat on the floor as a result, a footrest could/ should be provided.
- Seat angle: This is adjusted to provide the occupant adequate support whilst not tipping the occupant of their chair or, restricting circulation under the thigh/ back of the knee.
- Seat depth: If fitted with optional seat depth adjustment function, this is to be adjusted to provide the occupant of their chair or, restricting circulation under the thigh/ back of the knee. At least 2 or 3 finger space is recommended from the front of the seat to the occupant’s calves.
- Backrest angle: This is adjusted to provide the occupant with the preferred/ desired support.
- Lumbar Support: By adjusting the height of the backrest, the convex shape of the lumbar support is to be appropriately adjusted to suit the concave shape of the occupant’s lumbar area of their backrest.
