You can check out this video review.

Embody seems to be more comfortable (only tried 30-40mins thou) for me as compared to aeron due to the "full back support" feel... Are there any recommended alternatives (other brands) that can compare to embody? The only drawback is that it is fabric - any current user has feedback on this in terms of durability? The mechanism on aeron felt more solid thou, I may be wrong...

Thanks for the info! I've watched a few videos and a number of written reviews, all dated pretty recently.
To be honest I'm a little skeptical because some feels a little commercial. Was hoping to get a user review here as well for further reference. :)

Jiji Asami with leg rest review
 
https://i.imgur.com/ybD3bH7.png



The legrest functions similarly like other chairs with legrest
https://i.imgur.com/vWkrxKS.png

Length can be anything you want, angle can be either straight or downwards
https://i.imgur.com/ldrmNEz.png

Using the legrest is somewhat convenient. Pull the thing forward outwards, pull the lock thingies on both sides of the legrest sideways outwards, and do whatever you want. And you can do it in any order or even in one smooth motion.

Since this is DIY assembled, you can choose not to install the things you don't want. You can see the lack of armrest and headrest, although both are included.

You can see the lack of lumbar support also. The adjustable lumbar support comes installed, but I removed it because it was causing more pain than comfort. To remove it, "unscrew" it so the support moves forward. When you feel the characteristic "click" sound of something unscrewed to the max, you can just pull the thing out. But since the mesh is in the way (and it is tight when the lumbar is at the forwardmost position), I removed the lumbar piece by tilting it upwards or downwards (forgot).

The lumbar had to be removed like that because even at the most backward position, it still presses against your back.

The seat itself is slightly slanted backwards. I prefer sitting straight up so less pressure in the back and more in the butt. This is probably more a preference thing and there are many chairs of both types. But combined with the next issue and it becomes a pain in the back (pun intended)

The curvature of the backrest is too aggressive
https://i.imgur.com/01Hnd8H.png

Backrest has 3 positions: Upright, middle, and further backwards which is for relaxing and stuff. Above photo is upright position. The upper part doesn't look upright to you either huh.

If you try to sit upright and rest your back backwards, it puts a lot of pressure in the lower back while providing no support on the upper back. Just one day sitting at this position and my back is sore. Removing the lumbar support piece reduces the issue, but still present.
Even if you move your butt forward a bit more, it's still the same.

I find more luck with the middle position. It is still upright enough for most things, the lower back is supported with the appropriate amount of pressure. Upper back is supported if you lean back.

Build quality - Feels a bit cheap for the price, but then again there are many features for this price especially the legrest. After one day and the backrest most forward position is already buggy and I need to manually pull the backrest forward to lock it into place or release.

Would I recommend it? Meh, maybe? Maybe not. Maybe different people will have different luck with the backrest, although I can't think of anyone who would have a spine curved that way. The rest of the chair is pretty okay for what they are.

[1] Herman Miller - Aeron - tested at xtra feels good but expensive at 1700 with full configurations
http://www.hermanmiller.com/products...on-chairs.html
http://www.hermanmiller.com/content/...n_chair_3h.jpg

[2] Haworth Zody - dropped

[3] Okamura Contessa - need inputs to find and test
http://www.okamura.jp/en_eu/products...ssa/index.html
[img]http://www.okamura.jp/en_eu/products/seating/contessa/img/contessa_detail03.jpg[.img]

[4] Okamura Baron - dropped

[5] Ergohuman V2 - definitely feels better than Aeron at 600 bucks
http://ergohuman.com/ergohuman-v2-ch...rame-and-mesh/
http://thehumansolutionblog.com/wp-c...erg-review.jpg

Lai Lai, need help and recommendations to save my backside from the pain. All inputs are welcomed.

your budget, you got too much choice. hahaa

Ya manz, he is comparing it with a Pu obviously non ergonomic chair, sure a upgrade mah.
If can compare ergonomic to ergonomic chair will be best.

Where is the best place to buy hm aeron? I see on there is ergo supplies on Carousell $1599, audiosg on Shopee at $1649 and unwantedimport hwz at $1700+.

I’m more concern long term when there is a need to claim the warranty. Because they look like importers and they might or might not exist in the next 12 years

Concerned about warranty, can go for the authorized distributor. https://xtra.com.sg/about-furniture-in-singapore/

They have been in business since 1989, they started selling on shopee recently. That said, age is no guarantee of future existence, look at Robinsons (162 years).

Haha. To be fair I thought his review was pretty in depth. However, there's always a diff in perspective when you are given an item to review vs. paying for it. Not saying the youtube reviewer is not honest because he did point out weaknesses, but the perspective does shift. :)

From amazon for $40 right? How much is the height increase compared to the stock wheels? My aeron at max height still a bit low for my desk, this looks like a good way to raise the height just a tad

jtjt00 26-11-2020 01:52 PM

Where you bought the wheels and how much?
