Best Ergonomic Office Chair 2016

Top 3 Best Ergongomic Chairs 2016:

Our Favorite Ergonomic Chairs :

Aeron Ergonomic Chair by Herman Miller

(Full Review)

Pros:

  • Durability – The Aeron is as bulletproof as they come.  I’ve had mine for more than 5 years and it is still going strong.
  • Back Support – The Aeron basically invented the breathable and supportive porous back material.  It works… really well.
  • Rounded Seat Cushion – The seat cushion is not too firm, not too soft and incredibly comfortable
  • Variety of Sizes – Comes in A, B and C sizes in order to fit a wide range of heights and body proportions

Cons:

  • Price – The Aeron price is steep, no doubt about it.

Office Star SPACE Seating Deluxe AirGrid Manager Chair

(full review)

Pros:
  • Back Support – The back support suspension system is breathable and provides plenty of support.
  • High Quality Seat Cushion – The seat cushion is made of high quality materials and won’t fall apart.
  • Fully Adjustable – Adjustable in both height and tilt tension, though unfortunately the lumbar support is fixed.
  • Price – An affordable price point.

Cons:

  • Arm Wrests – Basically junk.
  • Size – May not fit everyone.
Alera Elusion Series Mesh Mid-Back Swivel/Tilt Chair

(Full Review)

Pros:
  • Adjustable – The Elusion is one of the most adjustable chairs available on the market, providing height, swivel and tilt lock as well as adjustable arm wrests.
  • Breathable Back Support – The back support consists of a porous material strung tightly over a frame, which provides amble lumbar support while maintaining breathability.
  • Contoured Seat Cushion – The seat cushion is contoured in such a way that it just seemed to work well for me, particularly behind the knees where it rolls off gently so as to promote circulation.
  • Price – At less than $200, the Elusion is a fantastic deal.
Cons:
  • Lumbar Support – The exact position of the lumbar support is not adjustable, which means that taller or shorter individuals may need to compromise on ergonomics.
  • Knob Design – The adjustment knobs were difficult to understand and use.  I also found them to be of lower quality than those found on similarly priced chairs.
  • Seat Cushion – While the seat cushion is contoured in such a way that I found it to work well, I also found it to be a bit too hard for my tastes.
