ERGONOMIC CHAIR PROS:
> Most improve comfort while sitting for long periods.
> There are many numerous favorable customer reviews of many types, brands & styles of ergonomic chairs online – the efficacy of ergonomic furniture is well proven. However, it is best to actually sit in one BEFORE buying an ergo chair.
ERGONOMIC CHAIR CONS:
> Can be extremely expensive
> There is a potential for over-spending on a ‘name’ brand, when a much less expensive off brand will do.
Ergo chairs do work & are generally very good for enhancing comfort when sitting down for long hours. Ergonomic designs contour to your back & spine to relieve pain & pressure. But what about when you’re not sitting? If the goal of these types of chairs is to help you maintain good posture while sitting down, wouldn’t it make more sense to buy something that improves your posture 24 hours a day – even when you’re not sitting? This way you can have good posture at all times. Well that’s precisely what the BODY-ALINE back & posture exercise machine does. It corrects poor posture with one simple motion in just a few minutes per day. Ergo chairs are best used when combined with the BODY-ALINE. The best approach is to use an ergonomically designed chair. Then rely on the BODY-ALINE to maintain strong back muscles & proper posture at all times! Many have asked the questions: “What are ergonomic chairs and what do they do?” and “What are the best ergonomic chairs to buy?” This analysis summarizes why, in our opinion, the BODY-ALINE is a better & more effective back pain solution compared to even the best ergonomic chairs for back pain & sciatica.
A Personal Review of Ergonomic Chairs & Furniture for Back Pain from BODY-ALINE Co-Inventor Jason Bowman…
I use an ergonomic chair because it works. I spend a lot of hours working in front of a computer everyday & it helps me to be more comfortable & productive. Thus, I believe in them & they are without a doubt an important part of having great posture. If I did more book or kindle reading – like the relaxed gentleman in the picture above, I would definitely buy one the human touch chair shown in the picture. I’ve tried it in showrooms and its genius design will keep your spine in PERFECT alignment – WITHOUT you having to think about it. Notice the effortlessly perfect posture the man is exhibiting while reading.
I very much recommend a dual approach to good posture that involves sitting on an ergonomically designed chair of your choosing & using the BODY-ALINE. It’s a highly effective combination, as each enhances the benefits of the other. My suggestion when purchasing an ergonomic chair is to choose one that makes you feel the most comfortable, while reinforcing the best posture. Don’t let brand names or an exorbitant price be the main impetus of your purchase. Instead, let comfort of the chair be your buying guide. In fact, my ergonomic chair costs a tenth as much as a Human Touch chair & I’ve had it for years, so the material durability is not a question. As a matter of fact, I’m sitting in my favorite ergo chair right now…
