After achieving the proper fit, pull the chair up to your worksurface to see what changes need to be made to allow you to work in this ideal seated posture. For example, check the placement of your computer monitor and keyboard/mouse. A monitor that is too far away causes you to lean forward or extend your neck, and a keyboard/mouse that is too high or far away requires harmful elbow extension that pulls your shoulders and head forward. Use our Workstation Design guidelines to help you decide what needs to be changed.
Seat adjustments may vary throughout the day depending on your current activity. The images below illustrate sitting positions for three different activities. Note that the use of armrests is appropriate for a relaxed position, but not for active keyboarding.
