The back lever on the right is the sliding seatto increase the seat depth.
The lever on the left side of the seat adjusts the weight taken to balance against your weight. This increases or decreases the resistance on the back according to your need.

To lower, push the back up to its highest point. This will release the ratchet mechanism and the back will go back to its lowest point.

This lumbar should be adjusted whilst in a seated position, resting gently against the back of the chair. There is a handwheel below the arms on each side of the seat:
The head-rest is adjustable up and down, forward and back.
