Chairs and desks, in particular, are used for a long time and relate directly to physical health. Thus, if you are going to buy an ergonomic chair for your office or home office, you better choose carefully and take a look at the functions.
Most modern office chairs come with reclining function. But not many of them have Forward Tilt Mechanism that allow your chair to be tilted up or down. With Forward Tilt, it helps you to release pressure on the abdominal region and lower back. Also, the pelvis is upright, back muscles are extended, and the head is positioned straight, Redding load on the neck and lower back.
When we are working, we may easily lean forward which lead to poor sitting posture. It will increase the pressure on the abdominal region, load on the neck and shoulders. The pelvis tilts and the spine hunches over, resulting in lower back pain.
