If you spend many hours sitting in front of a computer or at your desk what could be better than having a comfortable chair to sit in?
And if that chair happens to be ergonomically designed, padded with some of the new zero gravity materials so that there is no pressure points on your, bottom or thighs, well then, that is just pure comfort.
Did you know that sitting actually puts 50% more stress on your back than standing? Surprising but true. And it also appears that traditional office chairs are one of the leading causes of discomfort and back pain.
So, although price may be a consideration, if you spend a great deal of time seated at your desk, your long term comfort and health should be of prime importance. In the long run the price of a good office chair is cheaper than doctor bills and x-rays. Just like a good bed, a good chair should be viewed as a rock-solid investment.
