STEP ONE: Sitting Elbow Height Range

  • Measure the height from the floor to the top of your work surface.

STEP TWO: Calculate Seat Height

  • Calculate the optimal seat height range by subtracting 10” from the work surface height.
  • This calculation should be the mid-point of the chair’s seat height range.
  • Your seat height range should adjust at least 2.5” above and 2.5” below this midpoint.
  • It’s important to select the right chair that conforms to the body and environment.
  • Evaluate features such as seat size and depth, back height, arm height, chair height, and tilt tension.
