Finding your comfort zone – Back

HP cares about your comfort, productivity and well-being

Back

Use your chair to fully support your body. Distribute your weight evenly and use the entire seat and backrest to support your body. If your chair has adjustable low back support, match the contours of the chair's backrest to the natural curve of your lower spine.

Right
Distribute your weight evenly and use the entire seat and backrest to support your body.

Wrong!
Do not slouch forward.

Getting comfortable
Always make sure your lower back is well-supported. Make sure it feels comfortable in the position in which you are working.

Tips

Adjust often
If your chair is adjustable, experiment with the adjustments to find numerous comfortable positions, then adjust the chair frequently.

Avoid!

If you get a new adjustable chair, or if you share a chair with someone else, do not assume the settings are properly set for you.
