Understanding Your Ergonomic Chair

Optimize your chair for comfortable sitting at work.

Tilt Tension

Enables the user to rock or recline backwards to a set limit defined by the chairs mechanism or control plate and works alongside the individual user's weight. The tilt tension adjustment is modified by turning a large round knob found underneath the seat toward the front of the chair. A heavy user will require a tighter tension while a lighter user will require tighter control.

High
Back

For people who are taller and who lean back fairly often, high back backrests are typically 24" high or greater.

Mid
Back

For people who are average height and do not lean back very often, mid back backrests are typically lower than 24" high and higher than 18" high.

Low
Back

For people who do not lean back too often and need or prefer the back rest to be less obtrusive, low back backrests are typically 18" high or lower.

Active Seating

Active leaning products limit intervertebral disc compression as compared to sitting and standing, which can result in less back pain. Active products ease the stress on the body, so you are able to work upright all day without pressures from standing.
