SIT GO OFFICE CHAIR USER’S INSTRUCTIONS
WHY ADJUST MY NEW CHAIR CORRECTLY?
Sit Go has been specifically designed to
compliment the human form. There have
been a range of functional options included in
this chair to make it the most comfortable,
functional chair for your specific work
environment.
One of these many features is the versatile
synchronised mechanism. This means that the
seat and back of your chair move in a set
ration of 2:1. You can set your chair in ‘freefloat’, when the chair’s seat an back are free
to move with you as you move, providing
constant postural support making it ideal for
when you are regularly swapping between
tasks whilst sitting. Alternatively you can use
the synchronised mechanism in a ‘locked’
position, meaning the seat and back stay in
the same position. This is the preferred setting
as it provides constant support to you while
carrying out a task that makes you maintain a
similar position.
SITTING PROPERLY THE THINGS TO LOOKS OUT
FOR:
•
Your body should always feel that it is
in an upright but comfortable and relaxed
position.
•
Your bottom should always be at the
back of the seat
•
Your neck should feel upright and
your shoulders squared and relaxed
In today’s work environment many hours are spent sitting, usually in front of
a computer. The physical impact of sitting so much is high and is greatly
influenced by what or sitting posture is like. Areas that are particularly
susceptible to pain from sitting incorrectly are the neck, shoulders, back
and upper thighs. Through using the right equipment correctly adjusted we
can greatly increase our comfort and productivity.
HOW TO ADJUST YOUR CHAIR SO THAT YOU CAN SIT WITH THE
CORRECT
POSTURE:

6/ Synchronised
Mechanism
2/ Height
Adjustable
Arms
4/ Seat Depth
Control
3/ Gas Lift
7/ Lateral Tension

1/ 5 Degree
Forward Tilt
Seat height adjustment Establish the right seating height with both the hips
and knees comfortable at right angles. To increase the seat height, lift your
weight from the seat and pull the lever under the right side of the seat up.
To make the chair decrease in height use your body weight, by sitting in the
chair at the same time as pulling the lever up. Always release the lever to
lock the chair into a comfortable height
Tension adjustable wheel Turn the tension adjustment wheel left or right to
increase or decrease the tension in the synchronised mechanism. This
tension level affects the ease of adjustability in the seat and back position in
accordance with your body weight.
Your arms should hang straight down
by your side with elbows bending at right
angles to rest on your work surface
Seat and back adjustment Release the lever under the left side of the seat
to let the chair operate in free float mode, where the back and seat follow
your body in unison. Alternatively, to keep the chair locked in position,
release the lever, find the most comfortable position and return the lever to
lock the seat and back into position.
•
Your back should have permanent
contact with the chair back and the lower
‘lumber’ muscles feel supported
Height adjustable back The back height is adjusted via a ratchet
mechanism that is built into the back. Use both hands on either side of the
back and lift upwards to increase the back height. There are 3 locking
positions. To lower you must lift it to the highest position which will cause it to
release back to the lowest, starting position
•
•
Your feet should be flat on the floor
(or on a foot rest) and your knees at right
angle
•
Your pelvis should feel like it is tilted
slightly forward with a comfortable one hands
width from the front of the seat to the back of
your knees
5 Degree Forward Tilt Locate the lever at the back left hand side of the
chair. Push in and allow the seat to angle forward. Release lever to lock in
position.
Seat Depth Control To adjust the seat depth, locate the seat slide button on
the right hand side of the chair. Push this in to the desired position and
release the button to lock the seat into place.
