The Aeron chair front part curves downward, the back rest also protrudes out more, so the actual sitting depth is actually shallower than embody.
Perhaps maybe thats is also why i feel embody dun support the back and shoulder as "close" as aeron..

$300-$400 chair is also alot. what makes u want to buy this kind of chair. i bought a chair from ikea for $109 and i used them for >10 years.

It's like the saying why spend money on a good mattress. You can just sleep on the floor mah, or those $50 mattresses.


If you sit on your chair just 1 hour a day, $100 is good. $50 also good. Sit on the floor also even better no need waste money.



For your own health and well being, $1000 + good sitting posture and habits goes a long way (the latter being more important I must admit, you can sit $100 chair and every now and then stand up stretch etc will be good too).

Some investments give you benefits that you can't see but it goes a long long way.

I'll go and measure both when I'm free.

My mom is 1.5m and I see her legs resting just nice or it.
What's your height?

Curved surface actually means longer surface area over the same length leh.

Read online reviews betta

Googled and found these top five articles

Aeron versus Embody.
https://www.btod.com/blog/herman-mil...ron-vs-embody/
https://www.deskadvisor.org/herman-m...-chair-review/
https://www.quora.com/Is-the-Embody-...than-the-Aeron
https://www.10desks.com/product-guid...mbody-vs-aeron
https://gaminggeekinnovation.com/her...body-vs-aeron/

General consensus finds Embody more comfy and acceptable for most. Aeron has a slightly better score in ergonomics.

Both are very good chairs.

Your butt can go in more when the surface is curved as the front part is now lower. It does make sense.

Wasn't your complain is about the depth and distance?
You said that Embody's seat is too long for u even with the minimum depth.

Now Aeron is proven to be as long or even longer.
Plus the new fact from you that it's curved which make it even longer.

Doesn't add up leh.

I’m talking about the how the seat depth of embody makes it such that if you have a shorter leg, the back support will be weaker, and this makes complete sense with regards to how the curved seat work. I was talking about how I feel when sitting on both chairs, I don’t go measure them. Just go sit for yourself.

I am using this chair bought from Taobao. Paid around SGD360 including shipping to my address. Been using it for a few months and very happy with it. Bought the mesh back version.

below 500 is can try the chair i sit for 4 years.

Sail chair lor.. saw them selling it at gaincity sugei kudut HQ.

Can go there try. or go their website www.takeaseat.sg



Currently, I am looking for a really good and solid ergonomic chair, and basically spoilt by the choices we have in the market. Ideally I am trying to keep the budget below 2000ish, but am still open to choices. The choices I have in mind are as appended below:

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


[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/


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