Best ergonomic office chair?

I need a new desk chair due to a back injury. I'm looking for the most comfortable and supportive chair I can get but don't want to pay $800 - especially given the fact that I could end up hating it after a month.

What are you guys using and how is it working out?

Re: Best ergonomic office chair?

If not $800, what's your budget?  This is supposed to be the most ergonomic chair in the market.

Re: Best ergonomic office chair?

The Aeron is very nice. I have one.

There are similar style chairs made by Steelcase and such. Personally I prefer Herman Miller's chairs. More innovative, more comfortable.

Do you want a mesh chair, leather chair, or fabric chair?

Re: Best ergonomic office chair?

Yep the $800 one I was eluding to was the Herman Miller. I have heard conflicting opinions on it. I have also checked out Steelcase.

I don't care what it is made out of as long as it provides the support I need.

I am actually considering a pneumatic stand up desk since standing is way more comfortable to me. I have been alternating sitting and kneeling on a pillow.

Re: Best ergonomic office chair?

i know this may sound stupid, but i saw someone on saabcentral, and they took a saab seat and put it on a base of another chair. since the 9-5 seat is super comfy, and supposedly ergonomically made, you might want to try that.

or maybe an old saab 9000 chair

Re: Best ergonomic office chair?

I have an Aeron at home. It's ok when I am in "work mode" like processing images, but I wish it had a head rest for when I am being laid back (aka looking at feet pics) and want to slump in my chair.

c900 seats make good living room furniture, i know that!!

if you want a real cheap seat, try a workout ball.  It will improve your posture too

Just buy the aeron already. You won't regret it. Just make sure you get the right size.

Re: Best ergonomic office chair?

I tried the Steelcase. Did not like it as much as the Aeron. I hemmed and hawed about buying an Aeron for years while having one at work for a long time, but I finally plunked down 350 for a great used one. It has turned out to be a great investment. Like mentioned, get the right size and you will love it for the ergonomic value. Not only that, they are unbelievably durable.

The fiber material can wear holes in one's back pockets if you keep your wallet back there. YMMV
