Choosing the Perfect Office Chair for Standing Desks

In the ever-evolving landscape of modern workplaces, standing desks have gained immense popularity for their health benefits and increased productivity.

What is an Ergonomic Office Chair?

Ergonomic chairs are designed with the well-being of the user in mind, emphasizing comfort, support, and adaptability to promote proper posture during extended periods of sitting. These chairs are crafted to accommodate the natural curves of the human body, with features that can be adjusted to suit the user’s unique preferences and body type.

 

Here is what ergonomic office chairs can offer you:

 

Adjustable Lumbar Support: Ergonomic chairs often feature adjustable lumbar support to maintain the natural curve of the lower spine. This helps prevent lower back pain and discomfort.

Customizable Seat Height: The seat height adjustment allows you to position your feet flat on the floor, promoting proper blood circulation, reducing pressure on the lower back and legs, and ensuring comfortable seating.

Armrest Adjustability: Adjustable armrests support the arms and shoulders, preventing strain and allowing you to maintain a relaxed posture.

Reclining Mechanism: Many ergonomic chairs come with a reclining feature, enabling users to lean back and shift positions throughout the day, reducing fatigue and encouraging movement.

Quality Materials: Ergonomic chairs are often constructed with high-quality, breathable materials to provide comfort and ventilation, especially during prolonged periods of use.

Why Do You Need an Ergonomic Office Chair for Your Standing Desk?

An ergonomic office chair can provide many benefits for your health and well-being, especially if you use a standing desk.

 

Improved Posture: An ergonomic office chair complements the benefits of a standing desk by enhancing your posture. It supports the natural curvature of the spine, reducing the risk of musculoskeletal issues that can arise from poor sitting habits.

Sitting Comfort: While standing desks encourage movement, it's essential to have a comfortable seating option for breaks or tasks that require sitting. An ergonomic chair provides the necessary support to ensure comfort during these intervals.

Reduced Strain: Prolonged periods of standing can lead to fatigue and discomfort. Having an ergonomic chair allows you to alternate between sitting and standing, preventing strain on your legs and feet.

Vast Customization: Everyone's body is unique, and an ergonomic chair's adjustable features cater to individual preferences. This customization ensures that the chair fits your body, reducing the risk of discomfort or pain associated with poorly designed seating.

Improved Focus: Convenient seating positively impacts your concentration, health and productivity. Thanks to its comfort-driven design, an ergonomic office chair for a standing desk contributes to a more conducive work environment, allowing you to focus on your tasks without the distraction of discomfort.

 

Ergonomic Chairs for Ultimate Comfort: Glyder Series

Our Apex, Ergo, and Pro Glyders are designed to provide you with the ultimate seating experience and complement your standing desk. They possess all ergonomic chair benefits, satisfying the needs of even the most demanding users.

Apex Glyder

The Apex Glyder is the most premium chair in the Glyder series, and it has lots of essential features that contribute to your productivity and well-being. The headrest tilt is fully adaptable – you can raise and lower it to create a comfortable cradle for your head and neck, or, if you wish, it can be entirely removed. Another great feature is adjustable arms that you can move up and down depending on how tall you are. The backrest can be tilted and locked in three positions, allowing you to recline up to 130 degrees.

The Apex Glyder is the perfect choice for anyone who wants a high-end ergonomic office chair that can provide maximum comfort and support for their standing desk.

Pro Glyder

The Pro Glyder is the mid-range chair in the Glyder series, and it has a balance of features that make it a versatile ergonomic office chair for your standing desk. The Pro Glyder has an adjustable headrest that can be moved up and down to adjust the height and an adjustable lumbar support that can change its height to fit your lower back. The backrest can also be tilted and locked in three positions, allowing you to recline up to 130 degrees. The seat depth can be adjusted to suit your leg length, and the armrests can be moved up and down to match your arm height.

The Pro Glyder is the best choice for anyone who is looking for an ergonomic chair with lumbar support with the best price-quality ratio to create the ergonomic workspace and find an appropriate pair for their standing desk.

Ergo Glyder

The Ergo Glyder is the most affordable chair in the Glyder series, but it still offers many features that make it a great ergonomic office chair for your standing desk. The Ergo Glyder has a removable headrest that can be tilted to change the angle and an adjustable lumbar support that can be moved up and down to fit your lower back. You can also tilt and lock the backrest in three positions and recline up to 130 degrees.

The thoughtfully crafted Capisco chair encourages a flow of movement, exceptional flexibility, and ergonomic support that lasts all day. This chair is an ideal fit for those with a dynamic workstyle, which involves a constant change of working position to collaborate with co-workers and get projects done quickly and effectively. Thanks to the unique shape of the Capisco chair, you can effortlessly shift between different sitting positions to enhance blood circulation and alleviate stiffness.

The Capisco chair

 

While the default 265mm gas lift, provided with every HAG Capisco chair, is suitable for most working conditions, adjusting from 22.4" to 31.9", the 200mm gas lift accommodates a broader range of body types and heights. This 200mm gas lift can be adjusted from 19.1" to 26.0", perfect for shorter workstations or those who prefer a lower seating height.
