Relief from aches and pains whilst sitting.,
This review is from: Ergonomic Kneeling Chair Charcoal (Home)
Like many people I get to spend a lot of my time in front of a computer screen/desk, day in, day out. Sitting on a 'normal' chair, even one designed to support my back, left me in discomfort after little more than an hour into my working day. I do have an old back injury and also a leg injury, so I would constantly be shifting to try and get comfy on a 'normal' chair.
I bought this Ergonomic chair out of desperation. And I am so glad I did. My back is straight and relaxed; the way your weight is put through your toes, knees and glutes seems to prevent any feelings of discomfort from pressure in my lower back and hip joints. I can not praise this design enough. It does take a bit of getting used to, but once you have felt the benefits you will find yourself taking this chair from the office to the dining table and even to the lounge for watching TV! Actually, this is sitting in my 'Wish List' ready for me to buy another one - that good!
Looking specifically at this model - easy self assembly, the wheeled feet always seem like a weak spot to me, but they seem to work just fine (even when the weight limit is exceeded by a very tall friend using it). The wood is nicely finished, easy to dust/wipe clean. The upholstery seems to be quite tough, no signs of wear and tear after many months of daily use. The padding is more than adequate for comfort and isn't sagging nor 'dipping' where my knees rest.
All in all a very good product: it does help (me) with back problems and it is a nice solid piece of furniture which doesn't look out of place in any room in the house.
