To ensure the proper adjustment of your ergonomic desk chair, use this measuring tip: Do your fingers fit easily underneath your thighs at the front edge of the chair, just above where the knee bends? If this space is tight, you need to raise your feet. Use an adjustable footrest, or a large book will do.
Correct adjustment of your chair will help alleviate the backaches that can occur after prolonged periods of sitting.
