Can You Say Yes to these Questions?

Many sofas and armchairs are the wrong shape for a good sitting position. With your back supported does the seat of the chair fit the length of your thigh leaving a small gap behind the knees?
The gap helps you to get your feet back ready to stand up.

With your back supported and wearing indoor footwear, do your feet rest comfortably on the floor, without pushing your knees up?

Are you keeping your spine in a good natural ‘S’ shape (not a ‘C’ shape). You should be sitting on the bones under your buttocks and not on the bottom of the spine, in a slouch position.

Is your spine fully supported along its curves?
Is the chair wide enough for your shoulders, hips and pockets and high enough to support your head if you want to snooze?

Do your arms rest comfortably on the armrests?

Can the company make alterations to the chair to make it fit you any better?

Can you stand up easily from the chair?

Is there space beneath the seat to allow you to push your feet backwards?
You may stand up more easily if you can get one foot back and your nose over your toes.

Is the chair steady when you get in and out?

Can you imagine yourself reading, watching TV and having a snack in your ‘new’ chair?

Will the chair be right for you in a year or two?
We sometimes put weight on or get a bit stiffer or weaker as we get older.
