For lower back pain or discomfort
- Your lumbar area of the back may not be supported properly. Angle the back rest forward to increase lower back support. When using your Fluid Chair, adjust the lumbar support on the backrest to the curve of your back.
- To adjust the recline angle, twist forward the knob found underneath the left side of the seat. This will allow your back rest to recline freely. Recline to the desired position and twist the same knob backwards to lock your back rest in place.
- Lower the seat height so that your feet are flat on the floor and supporting the weight of the lower portion of the legs.
Discomfort in the buttocks and back of thighs
- Adjust your Fluid Chair height so that your legs are not dangling from the front of the seat. Make sure that the chair height is not too low. If the angle of the knee bend is too large, then the weight of the body will be transferred to the seat pan surface causing discomfort in the buttocks and back of the thighs.
- To raise the chair, lift the paddle found underneath the right side of your seat while lifting your weight from the seat until reach the desired height. Release the paddle to lock the seat in place. To lower the chair, lift the same paddle but allow your body weight to push the seat down to the desired position. Release the paddle to lock it into place.
For pain in the shoulders and arms
- Raise or lower the arm rests so that your arms are resting comfortably on the surface. Shoulders should not be haunched.
- Multi-dimensional arm rests should be used for repetitive tasks such as keyboarding and mousing.
