    Office Chairs

    Hello everyone,

    I’m looking for a general consensus. For those who work in an office environment, do you work from your wheelchair or do you transfer to some type of office chair? I work 8 plus hours a day in my wheelchair and though there would be some inconvenience with transferring, I feel a regular office chair would be more comfortable in the long run. Thoughts?

    facing the same issue. I'm not finding much information on this. Looks like most work from their chair. I might just buy an office chair and see how it goes. I'll keep you posted

      I would caution you about using a regular office chair as it is most unlikely that it would provide the type of pressure reduction/management you need to prevent pressure ulcers, especially when sitting at a computer for hours.

        I also work in an office environment and find it much more comfortable sitting in an office chair than in my wheelchair. I either pull my seat cushion off my wheelchair and set it on the office chair, or use a spare wheelchair cushion I have.
        My wheelchair has a very low backrest so I've found I slouch too much if I use it at my desk. My office chair is usually reclined so that my back is fully supported.
