Other than width, proper armrest height is also an important factor for comfort in chairs. Armrests adjusted too high or low can cause extreme discomfort, hamper your work process, and may build up tension in your arm, shoulders and neck. The ideal height adjustment is when your shoulders are relaxed, both arms are close to your sides, and forearms are equally supported.

An unexpected indicator, of a need to adjust the armrest, can be wrist or elbow pain. Although it can feel like the better know repetitive strain injury pain, a poor armrest position can manifest itself in this way, particularity on your dominant side.
