Most of our office chairs come with an advanced "Sycro" mechanism. This means the seat tilts upwards slightly when reclining.
This important feature improves thigh & torso support, reduces spinal pressure, and blood circulation.
1 When you first sit down, make sure you sit as far back as possible.
Your lower back should be touching the backrest.
This will help in supporting your lower back. A well designed chair should have a natural curve and/or a support pad
to help support your spine in this natural "S" curve.
2 Next, arch or flex your shoulders backwards, almost touching your back to the top of the chair's backrest. Then relax slightly.
This should be your final posture, keeping your spine in the natural S curve. Just the way nature designed us to be.
3 Finally, adjust your seat height so that your knees are slightly lower than your hips.
This reduces the pressure on the spine by 27% compared to sitting exactly at 90 degrees, and 72% compared to bending forward.
Try to keep your feet flat on the floor. Resting on tip-toes will bring your knees higher, increasing pressure on the spine.
DON'T BEND FORWARD. This creates unnecessary pressure on your spine and can lead to neck aches too.
Make sure your seat is at a good height versus your table and your screen to prevent this.
