When purchasing a new work chair, what do you need to know about ergonomic seat cushions? Not all seat cushions are created equal. We’ve got a few features you should think about when it comes to your chair’s cushion.
Not too Hard, Not too Soft
Just like Goldilocks, or that Boyz II Men line in Motownphilly, your seat cushion should be juuuuust right. A hard surface is bound to hurt your bum, while one that is too soft, or not durable enough, may sag in the middle, not giving you uniform support.
Adjustable To You
Your body is unique and your seat should adjust to you. The height of the seat is especially important. You want to make sure you can bend your knees level with your hips, making your thighs parallel to the ground.
Another factor to think about is making sure you have proper leg circulation. The part of the chair that hits behind your knees should be soft and not have a hard edge.
Several of the chairs we carry offer ergonomic proprietary foam technology from Via Seating. This thick, supportive, closed-cell, cold-cured foam is designed to provide body-cradling and balancing support where needed with softer edges to alleviate pressure points and improve circulation when sitting for extended periods.
Here are three of our favorite chairs with cushions designed with this outstanding, proprietary ergonomic foam:
