Best Home Office Chairs for a Great Working Environment

Hours of Zoom calls and lengthy meetings at your desk are the order of the day in the home office. What often suffers is our posture. That's why it's important to have a good, ergonomic office chair to prevent back pain.

Not sitting properly and remaining in front of the screen for hours every day presents a risk to your health. In the truest sense of the word, the right posture at work is a matter of attitude.

What requirements must an office chair meet?

One important factor that can't be missing from a comfortable chair is ergonomics. This means that it should be possible to adjust the chair to individual needs.

Above all, the ergonomics of an office chair are the most important factor. An ergonomic swivel chair keeps the body in motion, actively supports users in all the sitting postures associated with office work, and thus ensures healthy sitting at the workplace.

To this end, the desk chair should have a minimum repertoire of features that are indispensable. However, it doesn't have to be an expensive special ergonomic design. It is enough if the backrest, armrest, and seat height are adjustable.

Anyone who has frequent problems with back pain and tension is well served by a chair that also has adjustable lumbar support — support for the lower back that’s integrated into the backrest.

How do I adjust my office chair correctly?

- Seat height: The correct seat height is optimal when the upper and lower legs form an angle of 90 degrees.

- Seat depth: A fist should fit between the seat and the back of the knee.

- Backrest height: The height should be adjusted so that the curve of the backrest is just above the waistline.

- Armrests: The upper arms should be able to hang straight down in a relaxed position, with the elbows resting on the armrest. The upper and lower arms form a right angle.

Dynamic Sitting and Synchronous Mechanism

"Dynamic sitting" means a continuous change of sitting posture and is important for healthy sitting. Why? Because sitting for long periods of time in front of a monitor often leads to back pain. A good office swivel chair gently challenges a change in tension and relaxation.

To enable the "active-dynamic sitting" proclaimed by professional societies, some chairs feature flexible seat and back sections whose movements your body must constantly compensate for. Some have split seat surfaces, others have two-sided flexible back wings or horizontally split seat backs.

Office chairs that bring momentum to a sedentary office routine with good dynamic concepts often work with the synchronous mechanism or the asynchronous mechanism - meaning that their movable components, i.e. seat and backrest, automatically follow your body's movements, stretching the body and thus promoting blood circulation.

Both mechanisms allow for forward and backward movements, with the asynchronous mechanism allowing separate adjustment of the backrest and seat surface and thus separate adjustment of the angle of inclination.

What is the minimum price for a good office chair?

You should expect to spend about $230 to 300 for a good desk chair, and considerably more for a decent executive chair. There are certainly cheaper models, but if you want to do your back a favor, it's hard to find anything worthwhile in the price range below $200. In comparison, many inexpensive office chairs fail the endurance test and have safety deficiencies or problematic elements in terms of harmful substances.

High-quality materials, ventilated mesh backs, and airy multi-cushion technologies are also cost drivers, but ensure comfortable sitting and keep the backs of heavy sweaters, in particular, pleasantly dry.
