I don't really understand your question. I can lean back fine and twist my chair with the headrest.

I actually have steelcase singapore's phone number. Just spoke to them, their office still closed. So walk-in customers have to wait till their management says its ok. Don't know when.

Anyway, their number is 67385225

great information. From my experience, Steelcase sure take ages to reply their end retail consumer email.

Perhaps our business are not worth their time. ;)

Anyone have bought from comfort furniture before?

Considering the Jorca or Astrid.. looks like cheaper alternative to the ergotune or takeaseat Sail.

sry, I mean using your body / back to twist the backrest with yr head still on the headrest.. It's ok.. Gonna try it out.. Hehe

Haworth showroom only open during office hours so it's not exactly easy to visit for extended trying out for those working. The sales person I've been liaising with also won't be back in office until 29 June as they're doing staggered roster so she requested appointment to be during that week

Sharing some of my thoughts about chairs. Though I never tried true ergonomic chairs before.

In short,
I believe everyone will have a different experiences and thoughts. I don't think there will be one chair or solution that fits "all."
(Maybe perhaps one day, I dunno for now)

Experience,
Before staring, my sharing could affected be my body and tailbone that is weak in posture and core. Plus also the style in seating and if body form matches the chair type. Resulting in issues that I faced with different chairs.
  • - Supporting Accessories are really up to individuals for comfort and support whenever necessary at different postures, good to have, but not mandatory
  • - Mesh Back and Seat, etc. I feel its kinda good for ventilation but depending on different makers, some are very tough, tight, wirey feeling, and might even wrap over time
  • - PU Leather, forget it not ideal in our weather
  • - Fabric or those "carpetary" type cloth, depends on the clothings you wear at home, might irritate skin after long seating
  • - Adjustments, definitely good to look out for to fit your needs plus different timings you might want to readjust, i.e. Seat Height/Front/Back, Sway, Lumbar, Arm Rest (Optional), Head, etc.
  • - Size and Contour, this is perhaps the most difficult to hunt, almost every single chair has its own characteristics. i.e For me, first most important is to find something that doesn't hurt tailbone

Its kinda hard to recall everything, but then it is definitely an experience everytime, till now I still cannot find something that "works" for me. There are days I even feel comfort from those budget solid stools, but next moment another good or bad feeling comes.

Perhaps the best advice or recommendation that I could consider is "don't stay stationary in a fixed position for too long" or at least be slightly flexi during seating.
