Want HM, look at Embody, much more comfortable.
Or cheaper the Sayl, much better back support, but it is cushion seat, a thick one at least, But it may get hot without aircon and sweaty dirty if not maintained. UOB use Sayl. HM can pay installment free using CC. :D

Dont get Ikea Markus, the leather will spoil by 2 years in our climate. And it has a high tall back.

Tiagong the Harwoth Zody is quite value for money here. But OP didnt like it.. :(

Wassup with the old/new design. Your spine have new design?
The Aeron was jointly designed by orthopedics and still highly recommended by specialists around the world.

I can confirm that as I've multiple slipped discs, owned Steelcase's thinkchair, Aeron then Embody. Both orthos i went to recommended only Herman Miller's Aeron or Embody and indeed it lift all my pain off.
I also tried most of the other ergonomic chairs in the market but most can make my pain come back.
So i'm not sure how you deduce it has poor lumbar support.

Sayls are made in China, the back support cmi.

Xtra SG,the local distro, only provide one year labor warranty, after that is need to pay $200 +7% gst per call.
To be honest , I think very hard to have a major failure in first few years so the 1 year labor warranty is redundant.

The mass order guy, which been ongoing for many years, now under www.unwantedimports.com , offer zero labor warranty but have their own techs who charge cheaper for the full 12 years.

Both have full 12 years parts warranty except against wear and tear.

Actually there's no value for buying from the local distributor.
Heard the ones selling by the local distributor are made in China while those ordered from USA like in the mass order are made in USA.

BTW long term in bad posture can lead to higher likelihood of slip disc and other spinal issues. This was told to me by my ortho and physiotherapist.
Your discs will start to get stiffer gets out of position easily.

Those in the 30s must start to take note.

Once you kana slipped disc, you must live with it for life and you will regret why never take care of it earlier.

If you sit a lot, really don't save that money.

I am pretty sure alot of Orthopedics know that you don't spend almost 2k for an old design chair. I tested the bare model at xtra and I can't even feel the lumbar. Getting third party headrest and lumbar support sounds foolish for a deal. There are great alternatives like the Ergohuman and Contessa which can rival easily or even better at a lower price point. I think his stand is more on value rather than saying the chair is bad.

Aeron is nonetheless one of the better chairs in my consideration, but definitely not worth the price tag it carries.

Edit: Aeron are also made in China now, but it varies on the batches. Due to protectionism (they have a very complicated rule for US selling US made chairs and etc) we might be getting the short end of the straw.

My uncle is a senior orthopedic, he go around test all the chairs regularly, before recommending to his students and clients. Aeron is also his choice.

The posture fit supports the lower back muscles to guide it back, instead of pushing against the spine directly, is more comfortable if you set it right. It's like a pad supporting L1-L5 of the spine.
You can control how much of push till you feel naturally comfortable. Those who have spinal issues will tell you it's not the more the merrier, else you can do it with a wood plank.

Aeron have another option call Lumbar pad, if you like to "feel" something pushing on your spine. He don't like this as it can feel uncomfortable after sometime.

becuz it's fully mesh on both seat and back, it dissipates heat and you won't fidget to allow pockets of heat to escape.

Aerons are still made in USA, i think only the plastic Sayl and certain budget range are made in China. If you purchase from USA, the Sayl there are still made in USA. Spoke to the sales a few months back.

These days alot of Aerons are provided from China as seen from overclockers and some random sites. Best check with your dealers before getting it. Not surprised they are having dual sourced supply chain.

I don't like Ergohuman, the headrest push your head too forward and you get Hyperkyphosis aka forward head posture aka Nerdhead.
As well as Thoracic Kyphosis.

From that, can tell it's not really a real ergonomic designed chair.

The lumbar support if too much and can't control, can cause Lumbar Lordosis.

The designer for Ergohuman is a "certified ergonomist" cum designer. Not sure if he designed it or he bought an OEM from china and re-badged it.
http://www.alibaba.com/product-detai...5.1.5S1L98&s=p

Contessa chair was developed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, a known automobile designer, together with Japanese designers.

Herman Millers were designed by a panel of leading ergonomists, orthopedic specialists, and physical therapists.
So no wonder Herman Miller gets many medical professionals assurance.
I like the Embody chair the most.

lamesensei 06-10-2015 01:26 PM

read that the contessa is 1.2k (with delivery)? anywhere i can go test seat / do they have showroom?

PholkLorr 08-10-2015 06:30 AM

Do we need headrest for good posture? I used to use a chair without headrest. My current chair (the youquan one) doesn't seem to offer good lumbar support (or maybe cause i like to sit more forward) and im quite tall.

Also, which material is best for sitting in my underwear?

I prefer to seat on the Herman Miller Embody at home, no headrest.
In my office i will prefer to have the headrest so i can sleep.

TBH i like the Embody much more than the Aeron for comfort.

hengyongjie 19-11-2015 08:16 AM
