Whether you work from home or go to an office, you may have noticed the strain that sitting for 8 or more hours a day can have on a body. If you’re wondering if it’s worthwhile to invest in ergonomic office chairs, the answer is yes.

An ergonomically designed chair is intended to keep our bodies in a comfortable position with the least strain and to promote good posture. The sheer volume of contradictory information available on the internet contributes to more confusion than clarity. The term “ergonomic” has developed into a marketing buzzword that seems to apply to every office chair available, making it very difficult for anybody looking for an ergonomic office chair to make an educated choice. That being said, here are the 6 best ergonomic office chairs to help you make your decision.

Steelcase Leap Office Chairs

The Steelcase Leap’s unique LiveBack® technology is used in the contoured backrest, which changes form to support your whole spine in its natural, healthy S-shape. A headrest, which is optional, keeps your head and neck balanced over your spine and shoulders.

A manually adjustable tilt mechanism enables you to customize the amount of resistance you feel on your back as you recline; a variable backstop allows you to lock in your chosen reclining or upright position. Armrests connect at the base, enabling your arms to remain parallel to the work surface as you move, allowing you to stay comfortably on your task at all reclining angles. The patented Natural Glide™ adjustment enables the seat to glide forward, allowing you to recline without leaving your optimum viewing and working zone.

Steelcase Series 2 Office Chairs

The Steelcase Series 2 is known for being responsive with a comfortable fit that feels custom. The Air LiveBack® technology offers a unique geometric design that flexes in two dimensions. It keeps your head and neck in alignment with your spine and shoulders. It has an extra tension adjustment to enhance resistance while reclined, as well as a variable backstop option to restrict or lock a position in place. Armrests connect at the base, keeping arms horizontal to the work surface as you move which is key for proper posture when typing. The weight-activated tilt mechanism is synchronized, so you can recline without leaving your optimum zone for seeing and reaching your work.

Steelcase Gesture Office Chairs

While several of the best ergonomic office chairs on our list are beautifully built, the Steelcase Gesture Office Chair is the most adaptable. With 360-degree arms, you may change not only the height of the chair but also the width, pivot, and depth of the arms to give you support regardless of the job at hand. This enables you to sit in a number of positions, including sideways in the chair.

As you shift positions, the 3D LiveBack® adapts to your spine. Additionally, the chair’s back tension, core equalization, lumbar height, and changeable backstop may all be changed to fit your needs. The chair comes in four frame colors and a variety of fabric options. Additionally, you may choose from three distinct chair heights: standard height, low height, or high height models.
