Ergonomics are all the rage in the modern age, and no where have ergonomics been pushed to the limits further than in the realm of office chairs. Ergonomics, which refers to the study of comfort and efficiency in the workplace, began by starting with the office chair. It's no surprise that the field of ergonomic office chairs have made drastic leaps and bounds in recent years. Today, ergonomic office chairs offer amazing pain relief for those plagued by typical office ailments. High adjustability makes ergonomic office chairs easily customizable to relieve back pain, neck pain, joint pain, and poor circulation. Even if chairs like the RFM Verte Ergonomic Chair (which is heralded is one of the most comfortable chairs in existence) can get a bit pricey, most ergonomic chairs, such as those from the Hawk Series by Eurotech, come at incredibly low prices that make easy additions to the holiday shopping cart!
Folding chairs are a great solution to situations where chairs are necessary but not on a daily basis. For example, a multi-purpose hall in a school could be used for gymnastics displays as well as assemblies, chairs being set out and folded away as and when necessary. In a school environment you will generally find wood used as the preferable material for these chairs, although there are plenty of modern-day alternatives.
Once you have determined the type of desk chair you need, you will then want to look at the features you will want included in your chair, including the option of casters or glides. Most office chairs come standard with rolling casters which allow you to move quickly and efficiently from one spot to another. Chairs that have glides are stationary, meaning they do not move unless you pick the chair up yourself. A desk chair with glides would be ideal for extended height applications where your work station is higher than a typical desk and you need a steady chair to work on your projects. Many architects, artists, painters, and lab personnel opt for this style of seating as their work requires them to sit still. Some chairs also come with the option of having pressure breaking casters, which lock to prevent movement while you work whenever pressure is exerted on the wheels.
