So go and start searching for this ergonomic kneeling chair. I would suggest that you come to your own conclusion from your own research, but I can almost guarantee that you will be as amazingly and delightfully surprised, just like I was and still am. For once you need to invest in something that will help you to feel better. It's not a selfish act if ultimate goal is to have a clear mind to accomplish your goals of day, pain free. Something that will give you relief that you have been searching for even if you didn't know it was going to be in a chair. Now stop with those hand-me-downs from your family and friends, splurge on for your own chair this time. I believe that your office chair is most important piece of furniture in your office; this is not an area that you want to skimp out on. Think about it you spend on average 7 hours a day in your chair, 35 hours a week if you work only a 5 day week. That's an awful lot of sitting. So take your friends filing cabinets, your brother's printing stand, but pass on brown leather executive chair, and get yourself into an ergonomic office chair, preferably ergonomic knee chair.
What is ergonomics? And reason we need them.
Ergonomic is (also known as human factors engineering), is science of refining design of products to optimize them for human use. Basically ergonomic chairs are designed to fit your body type, your size and designed to make you comfortable. Ergonomic was intended to maximize productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort. So why would you want to go with any other chair, but ergonomic chair. It would be crazy if you did.
Nobody wants to work, but we don't really have a choice. Do we? So choosing an ergonomic chair will make time, well... less painful. I can not ask this enough, "Why suffer if you don't have too?" Ergonomic chairs offer many adjustments that can make chair just right for your needs and your body. These ergonomic chairs are well designed to support your body and does not restrict your movement, with built in pressure points for best support possible. The seat and back offer much support that is necessary for your back and lower limb, without this you will suffer from lower back and shoulder pain. People have been known to get migraines from bad posture due to lack of proper support.
Sitting with good posture without ergonomic knee chair is possible. Just relax your shoulders, keep your wrists straight, your legs must remain in contact with your seat, your feet must be on floor (both of them) at all times, your back will have to touch chair's back, keep your elbows at right angle's while typing (this will help prevent carpal tunnel syndrome), your upper arm's and elbow's need to remain close to your body, and your head and neck must be straight. It's not an easy task as I have mentioned before, but these are effect techniques. At first it will feel weird sitting this way but with some practice this will become a natural way of sitting, and your back, neck, and shoulder pain will be a thing of your past.
