Ergonomic Chair Design Basics Ergonomic chair designs distribute the weight of the occupant to various parts of body. Some design aspects can put disproportionate pressure on one or the other body parts. For example, a wooden high chair with a higher seat results in dangling feet and thus increases pressure on the underside of the knees. On the other hand, the chair design with lower seat might place too much weight to the seat bones which can be controlled by having reclining seat. However, a recliner shift weight to the occupant's back leading to lower back pain. The general rule, therefore, followed by designers for chair designs says that if the occupant has to sit for a long time, weight should be taken off the seat area. Easy chairs thus are generally slightly reclined. Some chairs are also designed with foot rests. A stool or other simple chair may also have a straight or curved bar near the bottom for the occupant to place feet on.

Wooden Office Chair Designs Wooden office chairs are usually the task chairs. They are designed for people who wish to work at a desk or table. These chairs recline very slightly otherwise the occupant will go too far away from the desk. Seat as well as backrest matters a lot for such office chair designs. Usually, backrests have three categories of heights- lower, shoulder height and headrests. Office chairs, generally have shoulder height backrest and are normally equipped with padding for comfort.

Wooden Outdoor Chair Designs Outdoor chair designs are made by keeping in mind the relaxation one would expect when outdoors. However, they also look like as if they are casually made and this is the beauty of wooden outdoor chairs. For example, they are not padded but then are ultimate comfortable. For this, contouring may be used instead of padding. A contoured chair seat tends to distribute weight without padding. By matching the shape of the occupant's buttocks, weight is distributed and maximum pressure is reduced.
