Ergonomics and orthopedics are now playing an ever increasing role in chair design as engineers seek to make chairs not only feel good, but also to actively support our skeletal and muscular structure. The result of these analytical ways of evaluating chair design have seen the development of orthopedic chairs and task chairs – chairs that work with our body and that stay in harmony with the tasks or activities that we perform whilst seated on them. With an increasingly sedentary work force and more and more chair based hobbies and pastimes, how well our chairs support us is becoming increasingly important and this is being recognised in the future design of chairs.
Adjustability, While an attractive design is a sought after feature for any piece of furniture, functionality is another key component as well. Something can look great but if it does not function properly, it is ultimately a poor investment. Fortunately, over the years the design and adjustability of wooden chairs has improved significantly. While wood chairs once used to come with seat height adjustment, many now also come with the ability to decrease or increase the tension needed to lean back in the chair to your liking. Along with tension control, some other chairs come with an ergonomic knee tilt control which allows you to lean back in the chair while keeping your feet firmly planted on the floor which in turn leads to less pressure on the thighs. For a more comfortable sitting experience, other wooden chairs offer a foam padded seat which can be especially beneficial when sitting for multiple hours at a time.
