What is an ergonomic office chair?
The best ergonomic office chairs aren’t always what you’d expect. From traditional task chairs to saddle seats, kneelers, and stools, the best desk chairs will always help you find a healthy posture while also encouraging you to move your body and change positions as you work. At Fully, we call this Active Sitting.
While adjustable-height desks are a key part of an ergonomic workspace, standing all day isn’t any healthier than sitting for hours on end. That’s why it’s so important to understand what “ergonomic” really means.
Join the Movement movement
Human beings are meant to move. We feel more energized at work when we activate our muscles, rather than let them go slack. The right ergonomic chair shouldn’t just provide support, but allow you to easily adjust sitting positions. This is how you’ll experience the most long-lasting comfort, and avoid the pain that comes from being locked into one position for too long. Fully active chairs let you wobble, rock, bounce, sway, and lean to get optimal movement into your day, so you can be productive and feel great all day.
The best ergonomic chairs don’t let you get sucked into thick padding or force your body into a rigid position.
Chair Spotlight: Capisco by HAG
The best option for all-day sitting
If you’re looking for a desk chair that’s best for all-day sitting, you’ve found it in Capisco. It’s the most versatile office chair we’ve ever met, and the first product we ever sold at Fully.
Inspired by the form and movement of the body, Capisco’s human-centered design allows for more healthy sitting postures in a single chair than three others put together. The plus-shaped seat back enables comfortable backwards or sideways sitting, while the contoured saddle seat opens the hips for a more active forward posture. There’s also plenty of space at the back of the seat for traditional sitting. Capisco is the best option if you sit for long hours, because it subtly encourages you to move and adjust your position throughout the day.
It’s a smart environmental choice, too: 90% recyclable, and made from at least 50% recycled material.
