Breaking Down Proper Seated Posture

Feb 15, 2021

Answer Yes or No to see if you have proper seated posture:

  1. Do you often find yourself hunched over your keyboard?
  2. Do you find yourself adjusting your position by propping your feet up or crossing and uncrossing your legs to get more comfortable?
  3. Select areas that hurt during or after working
    1. Lower Back
    2. Hips
    3. Thighs
    4. Knees
    5. Wrists
    6. Shoulders
    7. Neck

If you answered yes to any of these questions – you may want to check to see if your chair has the right ergonomic settings to adjust to your body’s unique needs.Proper Seated Posture

When selecting an ergonomic chair, there are a few areas you’ll want to pay particular attention to. You need a chair that allows you to:

  1. Sit up straight and your shoulders back and your ears aligned over your shoulders.
  2. Maintain the natural curve of your lumbar.
  3. Touch your glorious badonkadonk (aka buttocks) to the back of your chair.
  4. Bend your knees level with your hips, making your thighs parallel to the ground.
  5. Rest your feet flat on the floor.
