Reasons for replacing your current Computer Chair

Posted by Dr Michael Crane on 26th Feb 2015

Below is a list of basic criteria to utilise in determining whether you require replacing your current computer chair.

  • The chair does not appear to support you properly
  • The chair is uncomfortable
  • You're experiencing symptoms when sitting such as headache, neck or low back pain
  • Your body is undergoing postural changes: e.g. Shoulders rounding and/or mid back hunching
  • The seat pan or backrest is the incorrect size, that is, too small or large
  • Your weekly seating hours have increased dramatically and the chair is not advanced enough
  • The chair is broken or too old
  • The chair is not adjustable enough.

If you are experiencing any of the above, then make it a priority to buy a new chair. Don’t risk permanent damage!
