OFM’s Ergonomic Guide Applied To Executive Seating

May 28 06:52 2008 David A. Zimmerman Print This Article

From a human engineering point of view, OFM, Inc. follows an Ergonomic Adjustment Guide taking into consideration a wide range of design considerations.

First,Guest Posting they manufacture a height adjustable office chair. Then, the back height is set and the backrest adjusts up and down, the back angle pitch adjusts independently of the seat.

The seat tilt allows both seat and back pitch to adjust in unison, tilt tension adjusts the pressure needed to tilt, and tilt lock prevents the chair from further tilting.

Seat angle and knee tilt provide for pitch adjustments forward and backward, and the seat and back tilt adjust in unison pivoting from the knee.

Back depth and seat depth allow for forward and backward positions. Arm height and arm width adjust up and down as well as in and out.

Arm swivel and arm slide allow for inward and outward, forward and back adjustments.

The synchronic mechanism tilt motion is a 3 to 1 ration back to seat. Lumbar Support is either adjustable or permanent and tilt forward.

From their full line of Executive Seating, I have selected the following seven examples detailing the characteristics of each chair.
