Are you sitting comfortably?

  1. When sitting, sit well back into the seat. All adjustments should be made from a seated position.
  2. Make sure that the seat is level and the backrest is in an upright position. Adjust the seat height so that there is a 90-degree angle between the upper arm and forearm with the forearm parallel to the work also be 90 degrees. If this is not achievable a footrest may be required.
  3. Adjust the back height by lifting the backrest to the required height giving correct support to the lumbar region.
  4. Release the seat or back locking mechanism and adjust the body weight tension control (if applicable) to the required pressure. The chair should move freely without having to exert leg pressure.
  5. Either lock the mechanism in the required position or leave the seat and back unlocked for synchronised or independent movement.Please note that these guidelines may vary according to the adjustability of the mechanism and type of swivel chair in question.
