Chairs are tools designed to rest the body by placing us in certain postures, particularly when performing tasks. Good fitting chairs offer no distraction and allow individuals to focus on the job at hand.
Conversely poorly fitting chairs are not only annoying and distracting but stress the body and may lead to health problems. So it is important to have a comfortable fitting chair!
As office settings and desk/computer type work is common on a university campus, we will focus more in this area.
We all come in different shapes and sizes and so this needs to be accounted for to maintain a good posture.
