Small changes – big differences

Malmstolen provides a robust ergonomic foundation to reduce the strain on your body when sitting. But sitting correctly is just the start; the entire workspace should be adapted to your needs. Our chairs combine movement and support – both to prevent injuries, assist in rehabilitation, and ensure you sit in the best possible way. Check out our tips below!

Ergonomic checklist

  • It is important that you carefully adjust your chair to take full advantage of its ergonomic features. Follow our instructional videos, or get in touch, and we will help you.

  • Sit in a slightly reclined position, about 15 degrees. It's the most comfortable position for most people, regardless of the type of chair. This creates a stable sitting posture and distributes body weight evenly across the chair.

  • Sit far back in the seat to make full contact with the backrest and achieve the best possible support and relief. Make sure the seat cushion is adjusted properly so that you can reach the backrest comfortably.

  • Sit at a height appropriate in relation to the floor. When sitting against the backrest and in a slight reclined position, your feet should be able to touch the floor. This contributes to balance in the chair and reduces pressure on the thighs.

  • Adjust the height of the desk to align with the chair so that you can keep your shoulders relaxed and avoid stretching to reach the desk. This helps prevent unnecessary leaning forward, which can be straining over time.

  • Adjust the height of the screen so that your gaze naturally falls on the upper third of the screen. This is a good starting point for an ergonomic workstation.

  • Place the keyboard, mouse, and other tools within easy reach on the desk so thatyour arms don't have to stretch or rotate.

  • Let the chair follow your movements and lock it only if necessary. You should regularly change your working position but keep the chair's settings.
