Certified Ergonomic Office Chairs in South Africa, 2024

Certified Ergonomic Office Chairs in South Africa, 2024
March 27, 2024 gnuworld

An ergonomic chair can make a huge difference to your quality of life. A bad chair can cause back pain, poor posture and can even make it difficult to do your work properly.

Not every chair that claims to be ergonomic is actually certified. It’s important to find a chair that has been assessed by an independent ergonomics evaluator.

If it’s not clear whether a chair is certified ergonomic or is simply advertised as ergonomic, ask the manufacturer to supply the certificate.

At K-Mark, we are proud to offer two certified ergonomic office chairs in South Africa in 2024.

What does ergonomic mean?

Ergonomic means something is designed for efficiency and comfort for the user in a work environment.

Ergonomic design can apply to everything from chairs and keyboards to desk types and office layouts.

When it comes to chairs, ergonomic design is intended to minimise any stress on the user’s body that can come from long hours of sitting. A good ergonomic chair will reduce pressure on the spine and joints, encourage good posture and help prevent stiff, sore muscles.

What’s needed for ergonomic certification?

Ergonomics isn’t just about being comfortable. There are standards of support and adjustability that have to be met, this is why it’s vital that the chair is assessed by an independent appraiser.

To qualify as ergonomic, a chair has to be adjustable to support all types of users and prevent discomfort, poor posture or long-term injury.

An ergonomic chair should include the following features:

  • adjustable seat height
  • backrest with lumbar support
  • adjustable back tilt
  • waterfall edge padded seat
  • adjustable arm rests
  • smooth rolling castors
  • a sturdy swivel base.

Our certified ergonomic chairs in South Africa 2024

We offer two desk chairs that have been independently certified as ergonomic by Ergomax.

The EasyPro

The award-winning EasyPro has been our flagship ergonomic chair for many years. The chair features a breathable mesh back, making it ideal for the warm South African climate.


The back rest is mesh but it still provides ample lumbar support to encourage good posture throughout the work day.

The EasyPro also has height-adjustable armrests, automatic tilt adjustment and a 5-star castor swivel base. The waterfall edge seat has customisable fabric so you can choose your own finish.

Like most of our chairs, you can customise the seat fabric to match your décor or corporate brand. You can also choose from a black nylon or chrome finish base.

The waterfall edge seat has a moulded foam cushion that minimises pressure on the legs and the armrests are also height adjustable for optimal arm and wrist support.
