The 3 Best Office Chairs For The Larger User

There is no doubt about it. People are getting larger. Industrialisation and modernisation of our daily lives has played a huge factor in the increase of weight from person to person. Many of us live sedentary lives (20 million people in the UK are physically inactive) and this is highly influenced by the way we work.

Unfortunately, sitting for long periods is just what some of us have to do. Desk jobs require us to sit around 40 hours a week. This can take it’s toll on our health, from putting on weight to inducing back pain.

While there are many aspects of our lives we can change to help improve our health, sitting for extended periods just isn’t one of them. Whether you’re a Sales Executive, Marketing Director or a Graphic Designer, you will be sitting for a large proportion of your day.

With this in mind, it’s important that we choose an office chair that doesn’t exacerbate our problems.

Chair ergonomics have come a long way in a short space of time and there are chairs that have been specifically designed to suit the larger user.

From robust gas struts to sturdy lumbar support, it’s important our office chair suits our individual needs. Heck, we spend a large majority of our day sat in our office chair - it’s best to make it a good one.
