  • Adjustable backs for people of all shapes and sizes

You can also cut down on the clutter in your office by purchasing office storage allowing your desk to stay clear, paperwork is where it should be an stationery is put away correctly.

What is the best way to sit in in my office chair?

Poor posture can cause a lot of pain and it is something that many office workers experience throughout their career. Therefore, it's incredibly important to be aware of your posture throughout your working day. Good posture can improve your mood and self-confidence as well as improving your physical health. This is how you should sit in a chair properly:

  • Use the height adjustment feature on the seat so that your feet are flat on the floor and your knees are in line with (or just below) your hips
  • Sit up straight and keep your hips pushed back in the chair
  • Position the back of the seat so that it is at a 100- to 110-degree angle. You should also make sure that your upper and lower back are supported. You can do this by using small pillows or back supports.
  • If you work at a computer screen, make sure you are sitting at least 20 inches away from the screen
  • Relax your shoulders and keep them from rising toward your ears or rounding forward during the day

Teknik Goliath Duo Chair

I added was was said above.

I paid for next day delivery, and it arrived as expected. It's a good strong, heavy duty chair that I was looking for. I'm a large man, and the width of the chair is bigger than most other office chairs, and the weight capacity is 170kg, which is a bonus for me.
All in all, no problems for me.
