Chairs?

March 4th, 2013 by

On the heels of a recent article I posted about how sitting is the new smoking, combined with a recent bout of back issues, I’m in the market for a new chair for my office.

Fact: My work requires me to sit on my ass. A lot. I’m guessing this is the case for… well… all of us.

Fact: As much as I get up to stretch, take walks, even use a stand-up desk arrangement part of the time, I need a truly great chair in which to sit. Comfort and support for my back.

I don’t care how much it costs. I spend so much time sitting, I want what’s best for my body.

I tweeted a request for information and several people suggested Aeron chairs. I’ve had them before in other work environments. Seem fine to me. But then a few folks tweeted Aeron chairs are basically evil, cut off circulation to your legs, etc.

So are there some chair possibilities I’m missing? What type of chair do you use? What do you recommend?

Thanks for your feedback and suggestions!
