A $600 Ergonomic Office Chair for $6?!

aleraDo you know about ergonomics?

Ergonomics = “methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.” -ISO 6385

Sound like an awfully fancy word for such a simple idea, right?
Anything that can promised increased well-being and better performance, in work and in life – sounds pretty good, right?
If you’re still doing work from a folding chair or a $50 office chair it’s time to upgrade. Seriously, fancy chairs like the Herman Miller Aeron chair, known as the most well-known ergonomic office chair ever made. Made with form-fitting material to adapt to everyone’s body to offer hours of office comfort.
The Herman Miller Aeron Chair retails for around $730.
Have you heard of the Alera EQ Seris Ergonomic High Back Mesh Chair? This ergonomic chair is valued at around $633, about $100 less than the Herman Miller Aeron and promises to offer customized support for every body. The seat, back and headrest are made of breathable elastic polyester. The waterfall style seat is supposed to reduce pressure at the back of your knees for improved circulation. Plus the adjustable headrest is supposed to offer all-day comfort. The Herman Miller chair doesn’t even have a headrest.
But is it actually a good chair? See what one reviewer has to say on Amazon.com: “…I am a Disabled Veteran and I go absolutely now where. So I spend my days and most nights on my computer. I stand 6’3″ and at almost 300 pounds I need a comfortable chair. I’ve only had it a month now and I am extremely happy with it so far. It is very comfortable to sit in and it handles my large frame well. I just hope it stands up to the test of time. It was easy to assemble and was delivered quickly. I would recommend this chair to someone spending as much time as I do in it.”
