Ergonomic office chairs and ergonomic desk chairs have one or more features that help the user to carry out their office activity in more comfort and safety, with less fatigue and less likelyhood of aches and pains, than a chair that is not ergonomically designed. The activity is an important one, because an office chair that might be ergonomically appropriate for one task may not be for another; what the chair user is doing does matter. For example, a dining chair that is perfectly comfortable and ergonomically appropriate while eating, is not appropriate when using a keyboard. A Managing Director who occasionally uses a keyboard may find a reclining chair is ergonomically appropriate, but the ergonomics of that reclining chair would not suit a person who uses a keyboard a lot. 
 
If you are searching for an office chair using the phrase 'office chairs for bad backs' or for 'orthopedic office chairs'  or 'back friendly office chairs' then you are in the right place. Ergonomic chairs are the ones we would recommend for most users who have a bad back. The amount and type of adjustment and also the types of mechanisms combine to make it most likely that the user can position the chair to allow for a good ergonomic posture.
 
Some care is needed. If you use a keyboard a lot, then you should be looking at chairs with four key adjustments. 1) The seat height can be altered 2) The seat back can be tilted 3) The seat can be tilted. 4) The seat back height can be altered. All of these adjustments need to be independent of each other. By having these adjustments on your chair it does not mean you will not have any posture problems though, as it does require you to put effort into sitting correctly! 
 
If your work involves some keyboard use, but involves more time on other tasks such as telephoning, meeting, talking, thinking and so on, you will probably find that a reclining chair suits you best. It allows you to relax more by leaning back when you feel like it. 
 
The height of your desktop relative to your forearms matters as well. You should not need to lean down onto your desk, nor should you have to raise your arms and shoulders. The typical desk height in the UK is 725mm. If you are over 1.8m (6ft) tall you will probably not be able to work with a vertical spine on a standard desk but will adopt a crouching position leading to back pain. If you are less than 1.7m (5ft 6in) then you will probably need foot support.
 
(If you are over 1.8m (6ft) you might need an chair that has a higher seat. We have a section of chairs for taller people here. A guide to how you can measure the seat height you need can be found here.)
 
Full details of each chair are given in the specification sections. All chairs will suit users up to 114kg (18 stone); many will suit larger users. We recommend chairs with arms, as they can reduce the pressure on the base of the spine by taking the weight of the arms and they can also make your ergonomic chair most comfortable. If you find your chair arms do not allow you to sit close enough to your desk to use your keyboard, there is probably something wrong with your keyboard position or the shape of your desk. Having said that all of the chairs we are describing as ergonomic have arms that can be removed.
 
If you already have a bad back or suffer from aches, don’t count on an immediate solution being provided by the ergonomics of any chair in this section.  A change of posture will almost certainly be needed that can be difficult to maintain and may feel 'not quite right'. For example, very few of us sit with an upright spine, but it is how we should sit when using a keyboard.  Adapting to a new posture takes time.  The ergonomic features on the chair can only create the right environment for you to sit correctly.
