Healthy and dynamic
An ergonomic workspace is the perfect basis for you to work healthily and efficiently long-term. Our Yaasa Chair can be adjusted to your ergonomic needs, helping to relieve tense body parts during the working day.
The Yaasa Chair is the perfect add-on to your Yaasa Desk, but is compatible with any other office desk as well. Its wheels work perfectly on both hard and soft floorings.
Adjustability in all directions
The Yaasa Chair can be adjusted to your body’s requirements, quickly and simply. Change your position effortlessly at any time to fit your individual needs.
1. Seat Height
First things first: you need to set the correct seat height. Sit down on your office chair with your back straight. Pay attention to your lower legs: they should be placed at 90 degree angle with the floor. On the chair, your thighs should slope downwards slightly.
To move upwards, take your weight off the seat by standing up slightly. Then, push the lever below the seat to move it up. Sit down while pushing the lever to move it down.
2. Seat depth
Not only can you change the seat height, you can also adjust how far forward or backward you want your sitting position to be. What matters here is your personal preference: when you sit on your chair, you should be supported by the backrest while still having enough free space behind your knees.
To adjust, first sit down on your chair. Then, press the lever on your left and push the seat forward or backward. Let go of the lever to let the seat snap in.
3. 3D Armrests
The armrests on your chair can be adjusted on three different axes. Forward and backward, left and right, and up and down.
Focus first on the height of your armrests. Your arms should be bent at a 90 degree angle, like your legs. Then, find a good stance for your shoulders and adjust the armrests left or right. Your arm length decides how far forward or backward you should push the armrests.
Push the buttons on the outer side of your armrests in order to move them up and down. Push the buttons on the inner side to change the other two positions.
4. Backrest angle
A healthy posture does not mean you need to sit upright at all times – lean back once in a while! Your back will thank you for it.
Sit down on your Yaasa Chair and find the lever on the left side below your seat. Twist it counter-clockwise. This will allow you to adjust your backrest: you can lean back to recline the angle, or forward to let the support come up again. Twist the lever clockwise to fix the position.
Your backrest can be secured in four preset positions.
5. Lumbar support
With the help of your chair’s lumbar support, you can focus on relieving pressure on your lower spine and reducing stress on this area of your back.
Simply slide the lumbar support on the back of your backrest up or down to where it feels most comfortable for you. Pay attention to your personal comfort here: there is no rule as to how far up or down lumbar support should be. It depends entirely on your body size and comfort preferences.
6. Backrest resistance control
Last, but not least, you can adjust backrest resistance. This defines how hard or easy it should be for you to lean back in the chair. This depends on personal preference but also on your body weight. You should not feel like you are losing balance when leaning back, but you should not have to push hard either.
In order to increase the level of backrest resistance, find the knob below your seat on the right-hand side and twist the button clockwise. To lower backrest resistance, twist the same knob counter-clockwise.
Easy assembly in minutes
The Yaasa Chair is focused solely on your comfort and ergonomic needs. As with all Yaasa products, its simple assembly process means you can be up and running in just a few minutes.
Your dynamic office set-up
If you want to be productive and efficient, a clear focus on ergonomics in the office is a must. Yaasa’s adjustable office products combine ergonomics and modern design to adjust perfectly to your ergonomic needs.
Adjustable desks by Yaasa enable you to work effectively, both while sitting and standing. The Yaasa Chair is the ideal add-on for your Yaasa office, helping you sit comfortably and healthily throughout the day.
The benefits of office ergonomics
When you move your body regularly, the benefits are instantly noticeable. Your metabolism is stimulated, you feel fitter, more awake and better-motivated to work productively and efficiently.
Constant sitting takes its toll on your entire body and can even be dangerous to your health in the long term. Through regular movement in the office, you can prevent chronic pain before it starts.
More energy, increased productivity and less pain: a healthy body through considered focus on office ergonomics can lead to a happier working life too.
Who can fit in the Yaasa Chair?
With a minimum seat height of 44 cm and a maximum height of 56 cm, the office chair works for people of almost any height.
However, it is hard to make general statements based on height, since ergonomic seating depends on more factors than just height.
If you are unsure about the height of the chair, please contact our Support team at any time. We are happy to help.
How do I sit ergonomically on the Yaasa Chair?
The Yaasa Chair offers the best conditions for ergonomic seating. To make sure your posture is truly ergonomically correct, you will need to calibrate it for your body the first time you use the chair.
1. Seat height: Start with the seat height. Sit up straight in the chair. Make sure your feet are touching the floor. Set the seat height so that your thighs form a nearly 90° angle with your knees. Your pelvis should be a bit higher than your knees, with your thighs forming a slight downward line. This posture will keep your pelvis from tilting backward, giving your spine plenty of freedom of motion.
2. Seat depth: You can determine the right seat depth using your thighs. Sit up straight and lean your lower back against the back rest. In this position, there should be a gap of about a hand’s width between the back of your knee and the front edge of the seat. Adjust the seat depth with your personal comfort in mind, but make sure there is plenty of room for your legs and behind your knees.
3. Armrests: The position of the armrests is determined by the length of your upper arms. Place your upper arms on the armrests and adjust the height so that your upper arms form at least a 90° angle with your lower arms.
Make sure the armrests are not set too high. Otherwise, your shoulders will be pushed upward, which can cause tension. If they are too low, you will lose the positive effect of taking weight off your shoulders. Here, too, consider your personal comfort.
4. Backrest: Fundamentally, the backrest should be set so that it provides comfortable support when you are sitting up straight in the chair. However, that does not mean it can’t move when you lean on it. What’s important here is your comfort. In general, you should not be afraid to move around during your day-to-day work – and that includes leaning your upper body forward and back.
5. Lumbar support: Adjust the lumbar support so that it sits approximately at your waist. That way, the support will follow the natural curve of your spine and help relax your muscles.
6. Backrest resistance: Finally, set the resistance for your backrest. Whether you need more or less resistance depends partly on how much you weigh. Your personal comfort also plays a role here. You should not feel like you’re tipping backward, but it should also not be an effort to lean back.
After a while, you may find that you want to readjust your chosen chair settings. That is not unusual, because sitting for a long time puts significant strain on your body. Make sure to take plenty of breaks from sitting so you can stand up or move around a bit.
Take a look at our FAQs for the desks, too!
How can I adjust the settings properly on my Yaasa Chair?
Follow the Yaasa Chair setup instructions.
What are synchronous mechanics and anti-shock locking?
Synchronous mechanics promote ergonomic sitting. They connect the angle of the backrest to the angle of the seat. When you lean back, it doesn’t just change the position of the backrest – it also tilts the seat back slightly. That provides optimal support for your pelvis in every position. The mechanics encourage you to switch between different sitting positions. That relaxes your muscles, relieves the pressure on your spinal discs, and improves your circulation.
The anti-shock locking mechanism keeps the backrest from accidentally shooting forward when you undo the lock. That prevents the backrest from slamming into your back. To undo the mechanism, lean back against the backrest and ease it out slowly.
How far does the chair tilt back?
Is the seat adjustable?
Yes, the chair has a seat-sliding function that allows for a 5-cm adjustment.
