The More You Sit, the More You Need a Good Office Chair

If you think about what you do during the course of a day, you might be surprised to realize how much time you spend sitting—up to 75 percent of the day for many of us. Because our bodies were made to move, all of this sitting can cause us to lose focus. That's bad.

Since most office chairs are not designed to allow the sitter to move freely, we compensate by scooting forward in our seats, losing support from the backrest. This is a recipe for back and neck pain. That's even worse.

At Herman Miller, a research-based, human-centered approach to design helps them understand exactly what a chair needs to do to keep you productive and comfortable throughout the day. This growing body of knowledge provides the foundation for their entire portfolio of ergonomic chairs, each designed with the person in mind. Learn more.
