The best seat height is different for each user, making the seat height adjustment function one of the most important when it comes to the providing proper support for your spine.

Backrest Tension Adjustment
Turning this knob clock-wise or counter clock-wise will either make it easier or harder for you to tilt back and forth in the chair.
