Seat height is one of the important aspects to consider when you are planning to purchase a new BIFMA standard office chair. Seats that are too low often lead to strained shoulder and neck muscles, which can lead to various problems. If it's too high, you won't be able to get your legs under the table well, which can also cause discomfort in your neck, shoulders, and back. If the seat height is not correct, when you work more than 40 hours a week, it will hurt the human body in the long run.

The BIFMA standard office chair equipped with the air bar is usually more flexible in height adjustment, and the air bar of the standard height has been able to meet the needs of most people. However, if you're not sure what your needs are, it's a good idea to measure the height of your desk before buying.
