Lumbar Support Office Chair.There are many types of lumbar support office chair available today.
The quality of a lumbar support chair is very important, and in my experience, price does not always reflect quality.
A lumbar support chair must have the lumbar support in the correct position for YOUR back. We all have a natural concavity in our lumbar spines at the base of our back, but each of us has a different size and shape to our curve. Therefore, your chair must be specific to your spinal curve and shape.
A physiotherapist or physical therapist is the best person to advise you on the type, size and material of chair required specifically for your back and sitting posture. Do not spend money on a product without professional advice as poorly fitted lumbar support chairs can do more harm than good.
So, where do you start in your search? You have a choice of two types of lumbar support chairs:
At the very least - please seek professional advice before you purchase your lumbar support chair, as it may save you a lot of money and time. Frequently, training your muscles in active sitting to hold your back in position is the most effective lumbar support system of all!!
I have included examples below of high to middle-end lumbar support office chairs. Have a look through the features of each - go beyond the "desireability" factor and the "comfy" factor. Notice which products offer the best flexibility for you - at the best price. And, remember - ALWAYS see your physical therapist first if you are suffering from ongoing back discomfort or pain.
Aeron Chair by Herman Miller
I first came across their chairs - especially this one, the "Aeron" when it seemed that some office workers were becoming so attached to their office aerons that they were ordering one for the home office - often at their own expense.
And - they are expensive, especially when compared with similar looking (often more luxurious) office chairs.
As I have said elsewhere, I believe that you can achieve a high degree of back comfort and pain relief following a consultation with your physical therapist - some training in active sitting posture and the use of basic support products.
However - be the judge yourself! Have a look at the types of adjustment features for this chair as well as what other users have to say about the product.
Office Star Space Professional
You will find lots of chairs (especially "executive ones") that look like you could sleep in them, but be very careful! They tend to lack firmness. This Office star has about the most "seat stuffing" that I could recommend.
So, I have put this model here as an example of a mid-priced model that meets the criteria I would recommend for lumbar support office chairs, but as before - be the judge yourself! Have a look at the types of adjustment features for this chair as well as what other users have to say about the product.
