The Pros And Cons Of An Office Chair With Mesh Cushion


  Recently, I bought an ergonomic chair. But after sitting on the chair for a long time, I felt the mesh base would compress the vascular nerves of my thigh and affect the blood circulation in my legs, which makes me feel very uncomfortable.

The Pros And Cons Of An Office Chair With Mesh Cushion

Why unsuitable cushions will make people feel uncomfortable?

  Making the cushion oversoft or using the suspended mesh cushion is not reasonable. In daily use, we need to pay more attention to reasonableness and science. 

There are three reasons why mesh cushions can compress your thighs.

poor quality of mesh

  Poor quality mesh has poor toughness. After sitting for a period of time, it will lose elasticity. The more sitting, the easier to collapse. Finally, it will compress the blood vessels and nerves in the thighs over time, resulting in leg numbness. 

the people’s weight is too much

  Overweight people will easy to have thigh compression because of deformation. So overweight people are recommended to choose high-density sponge cushions.

unsuitable height of the seat

  Different height of people has different seat height. The minimum sitting height of each ergonomic chair is also different. If you are shorter but sit on a higher chair, it will oppress your thighs. 

How can people sit comfortably?

The height of the chair cushion needs to match the height of people.

A good seating cushion allows for a reasonable distribution of pressure.

  An oversoft and suspended mesh seat will significantly lead to pressure equalization. So there will be excessive pressure on people’s lower thighs, which will also affect blood circulation. Sitting for a long time can make thighs will be very uncomfortable. It is a natural thing. For example, over-soft sofas, and very thick soft sponge cushioned office chairs, both need to be avoided. 

  A good seat and cushion should take into account the shape of the human hip, be breathable and comfortable, and also take into account the skeletal muscles and soft tissue pressure reasonable distribution. The material selection should consider both softness and sufficient elasticity. At the same time, the chair needs to have a certain surface and cushion tension to avoid the compression of nerves.
