What Makes a Good Office Chair?

Sep.03, 2021

If the average office worker calculated how much time they spend in their office chair, they would be surprised. At an average 40 hour per week job or role, a businessman can accumulate approximately 1900 hours over the course of a year – and sometimes with the busy seasonal changes, people sit in their chair longer than they sleep!


When you multiply that by the average number of years a person works, it’s evident that a huge chunk of your life is spent sitting in an office chair.

So it goes without saying, that your office chair needs to be one of good quality. A bad office chair can lead to all kinds of physical ailments like premature back pain, muscle dystrophy, leg pain, and carpal tunnel – all contributing for a poor life quality, poor health, and lost time at work with a negative impact on productivity.
