Your Chair. Your Way. Right Fit. 

Modern life is busy. We are “switched on” for more hours than ever before. So it’s essential to create a comfortable ergonomic chair that provides perfect support while improving our overall well-being. Every person is unique so a “one size fits all” option shouldn’t really be an option at all. The LIFEFORM® modular design allows people of all different shapes and sizes to create an ergonomic chair so they can sit comfortably. Whether you need support for an existing condition, a past trauma, prevent injury and simply want to find a chair that fits your size –  small and narrow or you’re big & tall. We can help you get the best fit, unique to you.

WHY BE ERGONOMIC

Proper ergonomic design is necessary to alleviate or prevent pain and discomfort. It gives you the ability to adjust your surrounding and your posture so
that you are sitting and working in your optimum position. Being ergonomic helps you find comfort whether it’s chronic back, joint or muscle pain caused
by repetitive issues or traumatic injury from accidents. We create modular chairs that can be specifically designed for you – and your needs – to provide the right ergonomic support and fit where you need it.

SIZE MATTERS

If you’re small and narrow you may find:

  • Seats are too long 
  • You don’t make contact with the back of the chair – resulting in muscle exhaustion and slouching causing lower back pain, strain, tiredness and over time eventually even damaging to your spine.
  • Armrests are too far from your body 
  • Your elbows hang at your sides so your neck and shoulders have to carry the workload resulting in muscle strain, pain, discomfort and tightness.
  • Your feet don’t reach the ground 
  • Your legs hang over the edge of the seat cutting
  • off circulation, you feel tingling and numbness.

May we suggest?

  • Choose a Petite or Shallow Seat Pan so the depth better fits your hip to thigh length and the backrest is supporting your upper body.
  • Choose Extension 360 Arm Attachments which allow you to bring the arm pads right under your elbows.
  • Choose a shorter gas lift to lower the chair or pair with a Foot Rest to raise your feet higher.

If you’re big & tall you may find:

  • Seats are too small 
  • Either they’re too narrow causing you feel
  • squeezed and uncomfortable – or the seat is too short – causing your legs to be unsupported.
  • In either situation, unnecessary pressure points are created causing pain and discomfort.
  • The backrest is too small or too low
  • The backrest provides support for your upper
  • body – if the back is too small your muscles will
  • be strained and your core exhausted from overwork holding your body upright.
  • The seat is too low
  • Your knees are too high – creating posterior pelvic tilt and poor posture which may eventually result in disk bulges, nerve issues and serious muscular strains.

May we suggest?

  • Utilize a Seat Slider to increase the seat depth or choose a Deep or Large Seat Pan. Providing you more depth and width will eliminate the pressure points and keep your legs supported.
  • Choose a backrest that fits your frame best then
  • use the back height adjustment feature so you
  • can get the height just right to provide proper lumbar support.
  • Choose a taller gas lift – raising the height of the chair so your knees are slightly below your hips will ensure less pressure on your joints and lower back, reducing load and disc pressure and spelling immediate relief.

ERGONOMIC ARM OPTIONS

One of the most overlooked parts of the chair is the armrests. Armrests might not seem like much, but they actually go a long way to protect you from bad body posture. Adjustable armrests are very helpful in taking the stress away from your shoulders and neck, helping to alleviate neck pain and shoulder pain.

Adding an adjustable swivel function will allow you to maneuver the arm pad into the perfect position thus taking pressure off your wrists and forearms. For Elbow Tendonitis or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome sufferers took at adding a memory foam pad like our Ergo Arm Pad.

Providing comfortable support, they reduce pressure points on your elbows and enhance comfort for people with sensitivity issues like Elbow Tendonitis or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
