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.

Make sure to check for mesh and hydraulics as well before buying.

So would u guys recommend getting 2nd hand from these companies that refurbish and sell used office equipment? I think its nice of them to include 1 year in-house warranty. And at $650.
Or should i get first hand ergohuman?

If i'm not wrong, they are on the most basic configuration, cause i went to see before.

It's fixed arms, lumbar pad, and not with all the foward tilts and limiters, etc.

This config is very cheap because it is not armed with any of the ergonomic features.

Not worth it.

I just worry the mesh becomes loose or tear after a while. Or the hydraulics malfunction.
