Have you considered investing in an ergonomic chair for your home or corporate office? Recent studies have found that hundreds of thousands of common workplace injuries, such as back problems and neck pains, are caused by outdated and unsafe office furniture.
The good news is, you don’t have to break the bank to invest in your smart ergonomic office now! Autonomous, a company that specializes in smart office products, has an incredibly affordable option accessible to most office workers: the ErgoChair Core.
Perhaps the most important feature of any ergonomic chair is its ability to adapt and adjust to ensure each individual person has the optimal ergonomic support they need. Since we’re all built differently, we all need different adjustments to ensure we sit at work safely and ergonomically.
To get a better idea of how the ErgoChair Core (MyoChair) works, here is a complete guide to all of its adjustment points and features.
The ErgoChair Core's headrest is an easily adjustable add-on that can be lifted and lowered as a whole to cradle your head and neck in the exact right spot. In addition to lifting and lower, the headrest can be tilted up or down to meet the natural curve of the back of your head and neck.
Covered in a breathable TPB mesh material, the ErgoChair Core’s headrest is designed for ultimate comfort and flexibility.
The armrests in the ErgoChair Core are slightly concave to cradle your forearms comfortably. In addition to moving forward and backward to support different arm lengths, the armrests are easy to adjust up and down to ensure that your arms are bent at an ergonomic 90 degree angle.
Simply lift, lower, and adjust forward or backward until your arms are resting comfortably by your sides and bent at 90 degrees, which should also be parallel to your desk surface.
3. Adjustable seat
Using the right handle located under your seat, you can press upward to release the chair and lower it down, or remove your weight to lift the cushion upward. The seat’s height range is from 18-21.7 inches from the floor.
For optimal comfort, you should adjust the height of your seat so that your legs are bent at a 90 degree angle with your feet resting flat on the floor.
4. Leg rest
Feel like taking a load off and relaxing? The ErgoChair Core's got you covered. Under your seat, you’ll find a retractable leg rest cleverly tucked away that unfolds right out in front of you. Simply extend the leg rest, put your feet up, lean back, and take a well-deserved break.
5. Tilting backrest
To take advantage of the ErgoChair Core’s 24 degree range of reclining, simply flip up the left handle below your seat to unlock the backrest. You can then lean back or forward to the precise position you want. Simply flip the handle back down again to lock the backrest in place.
This is the best way to make sure you’re sitting straight and upright to focus on your work, and get a nice relaxing recline when it’s time to take a break.
6. Lumbar support
Every ErgoChair Core comes with a lumbar support cushion. Since taller and shorter people need support at different points to achieve a natural lumbar curve, the lumbar support cushion can be pushed up or pulled down easily to support any body type.
With up to 6 cm of range, the lumbar support cushion should support most tall, medium, and short body types. You may need to adjust this cushion a few times to get a feel for where your spine curves most naturally.
With such a wide range of adjustment points built into every ErgoChair Core, as well as high-quality materials built to last for years, it’s a no-brainer for budget conscious corporate and home office workers looking to boost their health and protect their back, neck, and shoulders from those daily aches and pains.
