What is the Difference Between Ergonomic & Orthopedic Office Chairs?

Our customers often ask us what the difference between ergonomic and orthopedic chairs is. In short, Ergonomic Chairs are used to Prevent Strain Injuries associated with long hours of sitting and Orthopedic Chairs are suitable for those who have pre-existing Back Ailments and/or Injuries. Orthopedic Chairs are prescribed to those who suffer from pain and require a seating solution which is going to treat the pain and/or reduce discomfort when sitting. Technically speaking, all chairs with adjustable features are ergonomic as these adjustments are designed to best accommodate the human body while in the seated position. Our Ergonomic Chairs have a number of adjustable features like seat height adjustment, backrest height & tilt adjustment, adjustable lumbar support, seat slide adjustment (seat depth) and adjustable armrests. Orthopedic Chairs are ergonomically designed with a multitude of adjustable features. We differentiate between ergonomic and orthopedic chairs as orthopedic chairs are more adjustable and have specialized features such as seat tilt adjustment. Seat tilt adjustment is necessary for those who suffer from pain whether it be in the legs, hips or lumbar region. The ability to adjust the tilt of your seat allows the operator to sit at an angle which offers the most pain relief. Everyone has a unique body with a unique set of requirements. There is no single chair which is suitable for everyone. Redline offers the widest range of office chair products suitable for people of all shapes and sizes, accommodating for each persons unique set of requirements. In conclusion, Ergonomic & Orthopedic chairs are very similar in that they both offer a multitude of adjustable features. Orthopedic chairs are more adjustable and offer specialized adjustments over and above those found on Ergonomic Chairs. Click here to view our wide range of office chairs.

Buying Office Chairs

Buying an office chair can be an overwhelming exercise due to the amount of chairs available on the market as well as the vast amount of office furniture companies marketing their products online. There are many companies who enter the market but do not last or stick around in the long run. Buying a chair from a company who closes down means that you will not receive the service or quality guarantee that was promised upon purchasing the chair/s. There are many new companies selling office chairs at very low prices which is of course very attractive to the purchaser/buyer. These companies make promises like 24 hour delivery with a 5 Year Guarantee even though this is in most cases not possible or correct. If you purchase from a company which goes under you will have no leg to stand on when it comes to servicing your chair should a component break in the future. We have also noticed companies who offer 5 Year Guarantees on chairs which only carry a 2 or 3 year Guarantee with the importer or manufacturer. This is therefore a false promise because when the chair reaches its guarantee period with the manufacturer/importer it will not be serviced accordingly. Redline Office Chairs cc has been in business for almost a decade. We have weathered many economic storms and hard times which have put many companies out of business. Purchasing an office chair from us is a safe bet as we have been in business for longer than the guarantee periods stipulated for our chairs. The last thing you want is to purchase a chair and have no after sale service. This is especially important for after sale servicing should anything go wrong with the chair after purchasing it. Our prices are very competitive in relation to the market but of course there are going to be many start up companies who are cheaper then us. Sometimes buying from the cheapest company can be a mistake as most start up companies do not last or succeed in the long run. We at Redline have an excellent track record with hundreds of clients. We are currently on a 4.9 out of 5 star with our customer Google Reviews. Our Client reviews are available to the public on Google which can be read to get a clearer picture of how we conduct our business with our clients. We only promote tried and tested office chairs as we believe that good quality is at the forefront of good business. Asking for advise is also a good way of getting a chair which would best suite your requirements. We are available to advise all new customers over the phone or at our offices/showroom in Edenvale. Please contact us should you have any queries regarding a product you are interested in and we will advise accordingly.
