What are you sitting on now?

For years, when at the computer, I have been sitting on an armless wooden wheelback chair with a folded towel on the seat. Perfect, I thought (and felt). Ergonomically superb. Have to sit with straight back. Towel is a touch of comfort.

But today, for Christmas, I received a leather surfaced director's chair with wheels, leanback, arms, and height adjustment. I'm on it now. I could get used to it but miss the towel.

What are you sitting on now? How does it feel, and can it be improved?

A simple wooden chair.
A guy I know always sits on a giant inflatable rubber ball.

The sofa, but usually an uncomfortable wooden dining chair, I really need to take advantage of the post christmas sales and get something decent.

Right now I'm sitting on 1/3 of a wooden chair ... cat has the other 2/3 (and the cushion).

If I'm settling in to work for a while the cat gets evicted, but there's still lots of room for improvement.

Ditto!

An adjustable-height swivel chair. The seat isn't all that comfortable, and it doesn't lean back, but it's served me fine for years.

My wooden chair with the towel had served me fine for years... I would never have thought of replacing it myself, but someone else thought otherwise. After 24 hours, the shock of the new has begun to wear off and I am quite enjoying this new-found luxury. Plus, I can now put the towel to its proper use.

on a stool, in the kitchen, with an Powerbook - gotta love wireless :)

At home I have a comfy old leather thing with well worn cheek marks - fits like the proverbial glove. At work I shuffle about on a horrobly uncomfortable waste of money.

Until the sweaty summertime when leather does not seem such a good idea. :)

Sitting on my crossed legs on an adjustable chair, which is on max height, but not quite high enough.

It feels okay, but I have to shift around quite regularly to get comfy and once or twice the guys from work think I've let one go (it's quite a squeaky chair...)

Can definitely be improved; a director's chair sounds great.

Is "Director" printed on the back of your chairs?

I use a Vivasoft [vivavispa.it] in heavy black wool polyester textile ( good winter and summer ) ..go search "images" for ergonomic chairs ..you'll get some ideas ..

they do work wonders ( although you still need to get up and move around sometimes :) ..even if you are big and heavy like YT ..250lbs

And keep the monitor(s) below eye level .. top of the image area of the screen about 6 inches below your eye level is kind to your cervical vertebrae ..and so better for your shoulders ..and use a low table for your mouse ( or ball ) and keyboard ..high desks are bad for your back ..

You gotta be kidding!

What are you sitting on now?

My butt! And it has callouses, too - that's a fact; I've got reliable, medically certified witnesses. ;)

A directors chair with a borken arm - I keep meaning to get a new chair.

A leather directors chair, which I bought from Ikea at a low price. Yes it can be improved, the suspension is not completely air tight making it unstable:P But nevertheless comfortable.

Steelcase office swivel/tilt chair circa 1980 (bought used complete with divot in the paint on the arm).

Simple. Very affordable. Heavy Duty.

Just like the one I used to sit in when I had a real job. The used office furniture place let me look around in their inventory otherwise I would have never found it.

They had plenty of fancy stuff but no-thank-you. They let this one go for a song.

Either that or the bed or couch (not wise on the back, but works in a pinch!)

Wow, director's chairs are incredibly popular - who'd of thunk?

Steelcase Leap, Coach Edition. The regular leather is kinda tacky - I'd go for cloth first if they didn't have the Coach version.

Nobody asked, but since we are ergonomics... my mouse wrist wrest is from Imak, "ergobeads". At about $10, it's a heck of a lot cheaper than the Leap, and probably does more for me. I just discovered this - found it in the drugstore. Now I need to find the matching keyboard wrist rest.

It's basically a little countoured bean-bag. The beads work better than anything I have tried. The callous on my left wrist (I am left-handed) is just about gone, along with the pain in my left hand. I highly recommend it!

I'm sitting on a leather surfaced chair with all the accessories, but insufficient padding in the arm rests.

It is my 5th or 6th version of this chair, I get a new one every year. They all have the same problem, insufficient arm padding!

To all chair makers out there.....stuff those arm rests.....and stuff them good!

My elbows don't need to feel your quality construction, they need to feel your quality padding!

Herman Miller Aeron [hermanmiller.com]. By far the most comfortable chair I have ever used.
