Not sure where to place this thread so my apologies if in the wrong place. After a very long period of being intellectually unproductive, I am now (almost) back in a position where it is worthwhile setting up a little work space in my flat. Part of this of course is having a comfortable, supportive ('ergonomic') chair that I can sit on for long periods of time (or indeed any time at all) without causing myself pain/damage. When I was at University (some time ago) I had a chair that did/had lots of things - lumbar support, tilting that could be weight adjusted or locked etc. When googling I see a lot of models that have mesh instead of cushion (for sweat?). I've picked up a fairly comfortable, but limited, swivelly chair from British Heart Foundation for a tenner. I'm using it for meals as well as the hard wooden chairs my dear mother gave me give me agony. Have a birthday coming up and have asked family to club together and get me a decent chair. Been doing some research but don't really understand the territory. Any advice?
