Finally, on July 11, a hero named Max Radt, the vice-president of the Jefferson State Bank, went into state Supreme Court and got an injunction forbidding Spate and the Park Commission from charging people to sit in Spate’s green rocking chairs. Spate, realizing he was a beaten man, promptly put all his chairs in storage. A few days later, Spate announced to the press he was ”abandoning his project.”
A new ergonomic chair does not come at a cheap price, which is why you need to do your research and make sure that you know exactly what you need to keep you sitting comfortably. Make sure to look at the chair’s warranty, if the chair is warranted for only a few years this is a good indication of how long the chair will last you. Contrarily, if a chair has a ten-year or lifetime guarantee this is a good indication that the chair is built to last and withstand tough working conditions. You may need to put a little extra money than you hoped to get your ultimate ergonomic chair but in the long run it will save you from visits to the chiropractor, money spent on having to replace a bad chair, and aches and pains caused by sitting in a poorly designed chairs.
The last factor to consider is how adjustable you will need your ultimate ergonomic chair to be. If you work for more 8 or more hours a day, you will likely need a highly adjustable chair that allows you to recline throughout the day with tilt lock and tilt tension control(allows the user to choose the amount of tension needed to recline back in their chair and to lock their chair in the upright position when typing then unlock when recline is desired). If you are a taller or shorter individual, it may be beneficial to have a seat slider adjustment that allows you to determine make your chair’s seat depth either longer or shorter.
When it comes to office chairs, there is no one size fits all solution. The right chair choice for an individual depends on a variety of factors such as height, weight, pre-existing pains or ailments, level of support needed, the height of the desk the chair will be fitting under, and more. As made evident, it can get somewhat difficult figuring out which chair will be the right fit for you, especially if you are on the taller side. If an individual is over six feet tall, even executive high back chairs may not provide the necessary back support which may lead to upper back neck and neck pain. There is also the seat depth that is an area for concern for taller individuals. If the seat is not long enough to fit the users thighs, this will not allow for correct sitting posture and will put more pressure on the knees and thighs. In order to avoid unnecessary pain and better yet, an unnecessary purchase, it is important if you are taller to determine which kind of office chair is going to work best for you. The term used to describe chairs for taller individuals is simply known in the office furniture industry as ”tall office chairs”, and it is a good place to start especially if your search will be taking place online.
An associate of Spate, who asked a newspaper reporter for anonymity, said that Spate had already invested $30,000 in his new venture. The reporter did the math and he came up with the rocking chairs only costing Spate around $9,500. Pray tell, where did the other $20,500 go? Spate’s spokesman said nothing to enlighten the reporter. ”Well, there’s always expenses in things like this, you know,” he told the scribe.
