I have this bad habit of purchasing cheapo chairs that loose their cushion fast. Whenever I go ask the salesmen what the best chair is, they lead me to some outrageously priced chair that looks like the cheapo I bought. Would anyone care to recommend a chair that I could find in a US chain office supply store? I'm ready to invest in a good chair, but want some testimonials from actual users, not a commission driven salesman.
But these days I sit on an excercise ball and I wouldn't go back. A little tiring at first- there's a certain amount of back muscle involved- but very comfortable and posture-friendly. There are varieties that are "anti-burst", basically if there's a puncture they slowly deflate instead of popping and dropping your tailbone on the ground. Highly recommend this feature. :)
i use a normal highback chair whose back-rest is high enough to rest my head. and the arm rests are adjustable to align my the mouse pad and keyboard. and i cut the arm rest in such a way so i can fold up my legs and work. get a chair that you will be comfortable in. saving a hundred dollars now and buying a cheaper chair now, may see you in the hospital, down with spondilytis, or something worse 2 years later. so act now. and save your spine.
They are very expensive but worth every penny. I have back and knee problems which used to prevent me from sleeping more than 2 hours at a time at night due to pain.
Since buying the Aeron chair and my Sealy Posturepedic bed [sealy.com], I sleep like a baby and my back and knee pain has been drastically reduced. I usually sleep up to 6 hours at a time now without waking.
These two products have drastically improved my comfort and quality of life. I highly recommend both ... and no, I am not a salesperson for either company.
When quizzed as to why they were so dependent upon a particular chair; the answer was normally "because I have a bad back".
I never said this out loud to anyone there; but I theorised that maybe they have a bad back because they sit in the same chair all the time.
Everyone knows that any one thing in excessive quantity is bad for you, so perhaps the same goes for your seating position.
Maybe variety is the key?
