What Does Fit Mean?

The first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of the word Fit is physically fitting into your office chair and your workstation. But there is more to Fit than accomodating your physical size and shape. The concept of Fit also means that your office chair allows you to move in and out of preferred postures and allows you to perform your job effectively.

Ergonomic Requirements

What are the Ergonomic Requirements of Your Office Chair?


The desirable conditions that should be met by your office chair to ensure a good Fit include the following:


  1. Your office chair should allow you to move both rhythmically and from one fixed posture to another
  2. Your office chair should match your body physically
  3. Your office chair should support you and your work tasks properly.

Fit Conditions = Move + Match + Support
