What is a task chair?
Task or swivel chairs are office chairs used in operative workspaces. Operative workstations are those where tasks are performed in front of the computer but that also require dynamic movement to perform other functions, get up, move around quickly and comfortably... It is of utmost importance that we make sure that task chairs provide users with well-being by preventing back problems resulting from the use of unsuitable chairs. Task chairs are also called computer chairs. However, home computer chairs should not be less demanding than office chairs. If we spend several hours a day on them or our children do, we should also seek out ergonomic and adjustable chairs. Quite often they are not suitable for weights of over 50kg, so, if they are used daily, they will stop working much sooner. It is much better to invest in higher quality from the start which will ensure that they last a long time. However, they are usually cheap office chairs.
Characteristics of swivel chairs
Let's look at what features comfortable office chairs should have in order to correctly support the user's back. The type of material used is also very important to ensure the durability thereof. These are chairs that will wear down due to intensive use and the quality will ensure greater durability.
Ergonomic design in a comfortable office chair
An ergonomic design is one that adapts to the shape of the human body, so that it specifically supports and protects the back area. That S-shaped design following our back will prevent incorrect posture. An operative swivel chair should help us to naturally maintain a correct posture. It must also provide proper support to our back and neck.
Reclining backrest for swivel chairs
A task chair must allow the backrest to be adjusted using a mechanism normally located on the side of the chair. In this way, the user can change and set it according to the position he/she wants throughout the day. These types of chairs are usually also swivel chairs.
Swivel chairs with adjustable seat
A task chair must always be able to adapt to the user, so that he/she sits in a comfortable position. The height of the chair must be able to be adjusted. In this way, body weight is transferred through the buttocks, not the thighs, thus preventing circulation problems and overworking. The perfect height will be that which allows the shoulders and head to rest correctly on the swivel task chair. Seat adjustment is one of the basic elements to take into account when choosing a comfortable office chair.
