Denise Pugh. Chair. October 13th , 2017.
Wood chairs - these were found a lot before modern office furniture chairs became an ergonomic science, but the can still be found today. However, they usually only swivel and rise up and down and are not ergonomic in other ways.
The Algoma company makes, not a beach chair, but a beach couch. It is called the SportCouch beach chair. Quite handy, it folds up like a regular beach chair, but sits two adults or three kids, comfortably side by side. And though it holds up to 500 lbs., it weighs less than 10 lbs. It has a sturdy aluminum frame covered with a strong weather resistant fabric, and wooden arm rests. But, that extra something that Algoma includes with their SportCouch is 2 detachable zippered pockets that hang on the back of the chair for handy storage of anything you may need for an outing: water bottles, sunscreen, keys, phones, book or magazine, etc. Besides the beach, these are really handy for sporting events, family get togethers, or a day at the park.
To keep your neck from straining, your view of your screen should be at the lower half of your viewing angle. Your forearms should also be parallel to the ground while you type on your keyboard. This is the most relaxed and natural position for your arms to be in while typing. You may be able to adjust your chair up to a certain point, or even to the height you can comfortably view your computer display and keep your arms on the correct position, but what about your legs and feet? Are your feet able to stay flat on the ground and keep your legs from dangling?
If on the second question you still said yes, then you may not be using your chair properly. When you buy office chair, there should be no expectation that it will magically make everything right. The chair, while providing comfort, should be used in such a way that you are able to take advantage of the ergonomic features and advantages that it brings. If after changing your chair, you have not changed the way you sit, or perhaps have not adjusted other aspects of your work environment, then, you won’t be able to take full advantage of the health benefits your chair can give you.
There are many office chairs now being produced that are intended to work well for people who already have back injury or strain. These chairs can offer new positions that can limit strain on already bothersome areas, while still allowing the person to work efficiently.
