Aisha Graves. Chair. January 29th , 2018.
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.
Screening Your Screen: Take for example, your computer screen. Are you working in front of a computer screen with really small fonts that you have to strain your eyes and neck just to see what you have typed? Does the display of your screen “shake”? Is the placement of your main monitor too high that your permanent head position is looking slightly upwards?
Mesh chairs - I first saw a mesh chair about 15 years ago, though I suppose they have been around a bit longer than that. These are basically task or executive chairs that have a mesh back. Most are still fully adjustable and ergonomic, but the mesh back provides great ventilation and breathability. Some even have mesh seats!
That said, though the headrest is designed to lean back as you lean back your head, the springs are fairly strong and for those with weak neck muscles, it can often feel like it is forcing your head forward. The best solution is to keep the headrest reclined.
Do not make the error of believing that just because you have an ergonomic office chair that you can sit slumped before the computer all day and not feel any kind of back or neck pain. You still should be aware to a good sitting position, and sit with your feet flat on the floor, to avoid strain or injury.
