As more studies of chronic pain come to light, there seems to be more connections between pain and poor posture. Unfortunately, many of our day to day careers encourage poor posture habits. Especially if you work in an office environment, sitting hunched in front of a computer for the majority of five days a week may not be the best position for your back.
With this in mind, there has been a trend of more ergonomic office chairs being released, selling themselves on the idea that they will encourage better posture. If you want to change your office habits, but don’t want to go so far as buying a standing desk, what should you look for in a chair to improve posture?
The goal of an office chair that improves posture is to keep muscles in your body active that normally wouldn’t be in a less ergonomic chair. This can be achieved without having unnecessary design decisions like being too heavy or rigid. The idea is to either alleviate cases of back pain, or avoiding cases of pain altogether – not make pain worse.
