Even the most qualified desk chair does not work if it is not set correctly. If you purchase an ergonomic desk chair at Heering Office, we will carry out a health and safety check at your workplace and you will also receive your personal workplace passport. This is a personal document in which we store the individual settings of your workplace, such as your desk height, chair height and monitor height.
The sitting height of your office chair must be in such a way that the angle between the upper and lower leg is 90 degrees, or that the seat of the office chair is at the same height as your knee. In that way your thighs are in a horizontal position. It is very important that you can place your feet right-angled to the ground.
The length of your thigh is important when adjusting the sitting depth of your desk chair. Take a seat at the back of your chair and make sure that your pelvis touches the pelvis support at the back of your chair. Is your knee not squeezed against your desk chair seat? Then it’s got good vascularization and you can do your work well.
The back height of your ergonomic desk chair must provide sufficient pressure so that your lower back will receive sufficient support. Heering Office advisors pay attention to the shape and length of your back, so that you are sitting with your back straight in the desk chair, just as you are standing in an upright position
For a dynamic sitting position it is important that your desk chair is set up in a way that your weight is adjusted to your body. Sufficient support of your desk chair offers a relaxed sitting position.
