Much more thought should be put into desk chairs than table chairs. Employees who spend all day sitting at desks will need chairs that are comfortable and healthy. Before looking for chairs to purchase, do some research on ergonomically designed desk chairs. Much more information can be found on ergonomic office equipment, and it is important to familiarize yourself with the potential long term health problems caused by ill-fitting or poorly functioning office chairs.
Lift chairs are a source of independence for people who have trouble rising from a sitting position. The chairs are motorized, and they rise slowly and tip forward slightly to allow the person to go from sitting to standing without having to lift their body weight. They are very useful in private homes, and in nursing homes to help the elderly or disabled have a degree of independence and to keep nursing assistants free to tackle more demanding tasks.
For chairs used to sit at tables in meetings, you can typically save on expenses and purchase cheaper, less elaborate chairs than you would use for desks. This is because employees will not be sitting in the chairs for long and likely will not need to type in the chairs or perform too many functions while sitting down. Although you want your employees to be comfortable, you usually will not need to put as much time into thinking about purchasing table chairs as you will desk chairs. Do make sure that the chairs are wide enough for most adults and that the backs come up high enough to offer support. Depending on the cost and the function of the chairs, you may or may not want to offer arm rests.
