There are many benefits to having a good Leisure Chair in addition to having less back strain. A good, supportive leisure chair prevents fatigue and discomfort that can come from siting in the same chair for hours on end. Let’s follow the 5tips to pick the best leisure chair for you.
Lumbar Support: A good leisure chair will have support for the lower back. Some of the better ones will even have an adjustable lumbar support that allows the user to fit the chair to their lower back. This is important in preventing back strain that can worsen and become sciatica. Reclining in your leisure chair supports the weight of your upper body and as a result relieves some weight from your lower back.
Wheel Base: Nearly all leisure chairs have a wheel base. Rolling is important in preventing strain due to reaching across a desk to retrieve items that are out of reach.
Seat Height & Depth:When seat height is properly adjusted, thighs should be parallel to the ground with knees bent and feet flat on the floor or footrest. You should be in full contact with the leisure chair’s backrest and there should be adequate space (width of 2-4 fingers) between the back of the knees and front edge of the seat. Having an adjustable seat depth allows individuals to achieve long-term comfort.
Swivel Base: All leisure chairs should swivel freely to allow for easy access to various parts of the desk. If the leisure chair doesn’t swivel freely, arm fatigue can result from over extending to reach various items.
Fabric: The fabric should be breathable to keep the leisure chair from becoming hot and uncomfortable after hours of sitting in it. In addition, it should have enough cushion to support the person sitting in it without feeling the base of the leisure chair through the cushion.
