Anatomy of an Office Chair

All of our ergonomic office chairs are made to promote a healthy work style. We believe it’s important to understand specific features that work best for your needs and preferences. Get to know the functionality of each feature and how it relates to your work style with help from the diagram below.

Choral Headrest Office Chair

Choral® Headrest Office Chair

  • Adjustable Headrest

    Several of our chairs offer optional headrests that provide additional back and neck support in a reclining position.

  • Back Support

    All of our chairs feature a supportive back design and many offer reclining capabilities that reduce stress on your back and encourage movement throughout your workday. If a chair will be used casually, a back that reclines is less important.

  • Lumbar Support

    This support feature mimics the natural curve of your spine to provide the greatest amount of lower back support when seated, which is an important feature if the chair is used frequently or as a primary task chair. Most of our office chairs offer lumbar support.

  • Armrest Support

    We thoughtfully select fully adjustable, semi-adjustable or fixed armrests for each chair to complement its design and provide the right support. All types of armrests offer extra support through the workday to reduce strain on your upper arms and neck. Adjustable arm height, depth, width and pivot accommodate individual preference.

  • Seat Cushion

    All of our chair seats are made to minimize pressure on your thighs and knees to ensure lasting comfort and proper circulation in your legs.

  • Adjustable Seat Depth

    Adjust your seat depth to your thigh length for a comfortable, healthy sit. You can adjust the seat depth on many of our chairs, which is a helpful feature if the chair will be for a variety of users.

  • Back Tension

    Tension control regulates the effort required to recline. This is an especially helpful feature if the chair will be used by multiple people, as it can be adjusted to accommodate movement of all body types through the workday.

  • Adjustable Seat Height

    All of our chairs offer adjustable seat height. All of our chairs offer adjustable seat height. This is a great feature if the chair will be used by multiple people or at more than one work surface. We recommend positioning your seat height so thighs are parallel to the floor and feet are flat for healthy circulation in your legs.

  • Casters

    Our chairs feature either hard plastic casters that are ideal for carpeted floors or soft plastic casters that are ideal for hard floors, like wood, tile or cement.
