If you spend most of your waking time at the bike desk chair, you know you need a chair that works with your body to spare you from unnecessary back pain and fatigue. Test drives several chairs on furniture, office supplies and back-care shops before choosing the one that suits you. Prices vary greatly: predictable, superior materials and construction carry a larger price tag.
Research the different ergonomic benefits of a bike desk chair. You will soon discover that everything from backrest to armrests can make a difference. Understand back-support features. Height adjustment supports the lumbar region (lower back). Look for chairs that provide mid-back and upper backrest as well. The tilt mechanism maintains support as you move and tilt. It is best to have your back slightly tilted back when sitting at the desk.
Look at the benefits of seat pan. Your weight should be evenly distributed on the seat. Look for a rounded or waterfall edge at the front of the seat, preventing the seat from catching behind the knees and cutting off the circulation. Three to four fingers should fit between the front edge of the bike desk chair and the back of the knees. Seat should continue at least one inch from each side of the hips for best comfort. Insufficient hip room can make you sit too far forward and not get enough support. Some of their pans adjust for a forward or reverse tilt.
