Air Lumbar

This optional feature, called Air LumbarŪ, is a BodyBilt exclusive! It lets you actually adjust the degree of lumbar support in the backrest by pumping air into the lumbar area. To inflate the backrest, press the black rubber bulb with your thumb or fingers until the lumbar area is noticeably firmer. To let the air out, just press the black button. Don't pull the bulb away from the backrest to squeeze it or you'll damage your chair, and you'll have to have the air bulb re-attached.

Seat Tilt Adjustment & Tension

The Seat Tilt Adjustment allows the user to infinitely adjust the angle of the seat from a forward tilt to a rearward tilt. The seat tilt is controlled by the lever labeled "tilt". Sit in the chair and pull up on the lever, which will allow the seat to rock. You can leave the chair in this "free-floating" mode by just leaving the lever up, or you can rock the chair into the position you like and push the lever back down to lock the seat into place. When your task allows for it, this rocking motion is a change that can be beneficial, but you'll get the greatest over-all body support when your chair is in the locked position.

To adjust the weight resistance you feel in the free-float, rocking position, get out of the chair and lock it into its most forward position. Then tighten the tension knob (located in the front underneath the seat) for more resistance, or loosen the knob for less resistance. Adjust the tilt tension to fit your body weight.

Seat Height

Seat height is controlled by the lever labeled "up/down". To raise the height of the seat, get out of the chair and lift that lever. The seat will rise until it tops out, or until you let go of the lever. To lower the seat, just sit down and lift the lever again.

It's important that your feet be firmly on the floor to reduce back strain and leg pain. BodyBilt offers four different cylinders (short, standard, tall, and extra tall), each with a different range of floor to seat height. We usually recommend the short cylinder for anyone 5.5" and under. In most instances, to find a proper seat height for working at the desk, start with the chair in its highest position; then lower the chair until your feet are flat and the weight of your thighs just begins to lift off of the seat pan and transfer to your feet. This adjustment should be peformed with the seat angle level with the ground.

Remember, that tilting the seat angle forward also removes seat pressure from the back of the thighs and sciatic area, so fine tuning your adjustment mightinvolve a combination of seat height and seat angle adjustments.

Backrest Depth

The Backrest Depth Adjuster allows you to bring the backrest closer to the seat, or farther away from it. This adjustment is optional if you select a task, a management or an executive chair with the J-mechanism. The K-mechanism option on management seating will not allow for it. Because this depth adjuster is almost a necessary feature for those with long thighs, it comes standard on Big and Tall models.

Here's how it works: if you feel like the backrest is too close or too far back, loosen the knob and slide the backrest out or in from the seat, then re-tighten the knob to secure it again. Don't sit too deep on the seat, though, or you may restrict circulation to your lower leg. If you find that your backrest adjustment is working loose when not desired, you will note that the knob has a fitting for a ratchet( socket ) wrench, whereby you may tighten it more securely.

Backrest Height

Supporting your back is crucial to healthy sitting, and the backrest height adjustment allows you to position the support where you need it. There's no knob or lever for this feature. You just grab the bottom part of the back and raise the entire backrest. You'll hear a click each time the backrest moves. Each click raises the backrest another half-inch, up to four inches. To lower the backrest, lift it past the last "click" and it'll drop back down to the lowest position. For maximum comfort, be sure to set the lumbar support of the backrest to fit your lumbar curve, around the belt line. When in doubt, go with a click one notch lower and it will probably be just right.

Backrest Angle

The backrest angle is controlled by the lever labeled "back". To change the backrest angle, lift this lever, then push the backrest away from your back. Let go of the lever and scoot all the way back on the seat. Don't sit so far back on the seat you feel pressure on the soft area behind your knees (you want at least 2" of space between the back of your knee crease and the front of the chair). You can adjust the seat tilt and the backrest angle for an open posture (an obtuse angle like this is great for the hip joint and back) or you can set a more traditional 90-degree posture. After adjusting the backrest angle, you might need to readjust the seat height to establish a downward slope on your thighs.

Neckroll Height

If your chair is a 3500-Series model, it will come with a height-adjustable neckroll. Like the backrest, reach behind you and move the neckroll up. To lower the neckroll, just lift it past the highest setting and return it to its lowest position. The four inches of range will allow you to position the neckroll in the curve of your neck for ideal support.

You might've noticed that we call this a "neckroll", and not a "headrest". That's because our 3500 Series chairs support both your head and your neck. Your spine has three primary curves that should be supported: it curves in at your lower back, or lumbar, back outward at the thoracic, then in again at your neck. Like the contoured backrest, the neckroll is designed to preserve the curves of a healthy spine. A chair with a headrest pushes your head forward into an improper position without supporting your neck, which can cause neck and shoulder tension, headaches, and other aches and pains.

Armrest Height & Angle

Arm support is extremely important. When we type or write or move a mouse all day we can either support the weight of our arm on the chair's armrest, properly support the forearm on the worksurface (can be done when you have an adjustable desk and/or keyboard/mouse platform), or take the more painful route and make our neck/shoulder muscles support that weight all day. Basically, your arms weigh about 10 to 20 pounds each, which is like hanging a 10 or 20 pound weight on each shoulder and then trying to work. The standard arms on your BodyBilt chair allow you to adjust the height, width, and angle of the arm pad to make sure your arms are fully supported in their most comfortable position.

To adjust the height and angle of the arm pad, flip up the cam lever on the outside edge of the arm bracket. Next, position the pad at a height and angle that will fully support your arms. Be careful you don't position them so high your shoulders are pushed upwards. Flip the lever back down to lock the arm pad into position. The traditional "best" ergonomic position of the arms, is that which facilitates a 90 degree bend in the elbow while having the shoulders totally relaxed.

When you're adjusting the armrest height and angle, don't panic if you accidentally pull the arm pad out of the bracket. That's what allows you the freedom to easily swap out the standard arm pads for any of the many optional arm pads we make for specific applications or medical necessities. If the arm pad comes out, just re-insert the post into the arm bracket and push the arm pad down gently. Then flip the lever back down to lock it into position.

Armrest Width

The Armrest Width Adjuster lets you position the entire armrest closer to, or farther from, your body. Just loosen the knob beneath the seat, slide the armrest to the desired position, then tighten the knob. The knob also has a fitting for a ratchet wrench should you find the need to tighten them to a greater degree than your hand strength will facilitate.

Seat Swivel

The Swivel adjustment provides a 360° range of motion for the entire chair, which rotates smoothly on the pneumatic cylinder.
