- 1 The cheapest options
- 2 The Budget options
- 3 The Most comfortable options
A large portion of the world’s working men and women have a sitting job for more than 50 hours per week. Not only this an average enthusiast gamer sits on a chair continuously for several hours more than a working man including me. A normal chair for guests will kill your back if you sit several hours for your work. I use an ergonomic chair for sitting in front of my computer to work for several hours but when I went to my closest friend’s home, I saw that he was using the same guest chair with no back support for playing games.
I sat on that and in a few minutes I started feeling uncomfortable. Not 1 hour, not 2 hours but just a few minutes were enough for me to stand and give up. That was the time I felt that the most important thing for your health to consider a good ergonomic chair that supports your back otherwise you will suffer from lower back problems that are disastrous. I have listed the best ergonomic office chairs for your day to day office work that won’t make your tired and will give you so much comfort that you would want to work more which will lead to more productivity.
The cheapest options
FurnitureR Low-Back Mesh Ergonomic Office Chair
The cheapest ergonomic chair that I can suggest is this. It’s very simple and costs less than $50. So if you are on a really very tight budget then this will serve you at least the basic purpose giving you comfort at the same time. The chair comes with curved meshed back to support your back and to give ventilation. For people who work in a hot environment can feel sweaty on chairs without mesh but this will allow proper air circulation for more relaxed back.
The chair is 360 degree rotatable and has 5 wheels for mobility. This will allow you to adjust yourself according to your workspace. And if you want more height then this chair’s seat height can be lifted upto 19 inches and can be lowered down as low as 15 inches from bottom.
This chair is perfect of small workspace and can support upto 250 pounds of weight. So you cannot let a very heavyweight person sit on the chair but it’s good for casual use. This chair is available in 7 different designs and colours that also vary in price.(This chair is unavailable right now but I have linked to a similar one)
Mid Back Mesh Ergonomic Office Chair O12
It’s a casual looking chair which is bigger than the previous one but has better comfortability. You can rest your whole back on to it. The back is meshed and is good for easy air flow. The side arms are now present which were absent in the previous one for hands placement. This is good for long hours of work on computer.
The chair is 360 degree rotatable and comes with 5 wheels for easy mobility. The chair can be lifted as high as 20 inches but if you are tall then this may not be a good option for you. You can opt for the other chairs in the list then but this chair is good for heavy persons also.
Users have given good reviews about it. The durability and comfort is nice and the assembly of the parts of this chair won’t require you more than 15 minutes of work. The screws don’t loosen up even if a 200 pounds man sits on it everyday for several hours. According to me this chair is 4.5 out of 5 for the price.
The Budget options
Tangkula Black Ergonomic Office Chair
If you are looking for an erogonomic chair that also has a head support then this one is the best budget chair for you. The chair looks very elegant and stylish but also gives superb comfort. The design is very good especially the back support which is having mesh and the head support too has the mesh for easy air circulation.
The side arms are detached from the back for more space and they are just simply flat for more comfortable hand placement.
Now the seat size is 18.9″ X 18.5″ and the backrest support size is 18.9″ X 26.7″. The chair’s height can be adjusted from 19 inches to 21 inches which is one inch more than the previous one. Again the chair is mobile and can be easily moved from one place to another smoothly on the floor.
Mid-Back Black Mesh Swivel Task Chair
This chair is more customizable. If you work several hours in hot environment, it’s meshed back will ensure proper breathability and is durable too as stated by several customers. The back support is curved at the bottom making you practice better posture and you can sit straight for a long time.
The side arms are flip up type which can be flipped up when you don’t want to place your arms on them. The seat is also very comfortable and is made of leather which isn’t mentioned in product description on amazon.
This chair can easily handle weight upto 270Lbs and is also good for people above 6 feets. Many men who are above 6 feet have used this chair for several continuous hours and still didn’t complained about it’s comfortability. It’s definitely worth the price. However one con of this chair I want to mention is that the side arms do not have height adjustments which can also be a factor for proper placement of hands.
Merax Ergonomic Mesh Adjustable Chair
Now this chair comes with a headrest that is height adjustable. The previous chair didn’t have this feature but still both of these have their own comforts. First of all the design is good and this chair is bigger than a normal task chair so it will be better for you if you are tall.
The back has lumber support for your lower back and both the headrest and back has mesh that will ensure easy air flow. The side arms are spinnable forward and backwards. The seat is Foam padded Upholstered and can be rotated 360 degrees.
The minimum height of the seat is 18 inches and the maximum height it can achieve is 22 inches which is good. The base is made up of high quality nylon and the dual wheel casters make it easier to move on floor but it cannot move so smooth on a thick carpet.
Other than this the chair is just good as it looks and can be assembled in just 20 minutes.
SPACE Professional AirGrid Ergonomic Chair
This chair is the manager version of the SPACE professional chairs. There are two more styles which are executive chair which is double expensive and one is visitor chair which doesn’t have the wheels for mobility. The chair doesn’t have a headrest which is a con but the executive version does have but it’s way more expensive. But still this chair has some features that are seen in none of the previous above.
First of all the seat is Eco Leather seat with mesh siding for breathability and comfort and is not stuffed more or less. It’s stuffed with the exact proportion for comfort and reliability. Second good feature in this chair is the height adjustable side arms which can be adjusted according to the placing of your hands.
If your computer desk is at more height you can increase the height of it’s side arms or lower if the desk’s height is lower. Or you can adjust it according to your will. But there is one con for the people who are heavy which is the concave design of the side arms which may not be suitable for placing hands completely. But the chair itself can easily handle more than 200 pounds of weight.
The seat’s height can be adjusted from 18 inches to 23 inches and the side arms height from 6 inches to 9 inches from the seat’s top. The base is made up of heavy duty angled nylon with oversized dual wheel carpet casters which move smoothly on office carpet. So you can easily move it around without any stopping. This infact is the best budget chair without headrest.
The Most comfortable options
Office Factor Ergonomic Executive Managers Mesh Chair
One of the most comfortable ergonomic chairs in the marketplace, this chair has everything from good ventilation to extra ordinary reliability. The chair comes with 5 years of warranty. So the price really isn’t that much if you compare the value you get with this chair.
The head rest is adjustable and can be totally removed if you don’t want to make your head rest on it. the back is made up of strong nylon base and has good flexible lumbar support for your back. The back can be locked at any point and can decline upto 30 degrees. But the chair is specially meant for several hours of working without any back pain.
The side arms are again very good built and are height adjustable. The base is made up of aluminium and is very strong. It has 5 dual wheel carpet casters and are easy to move just like the previous chair.
But one thing I want to mention about this chair is when I say one of the most comfortable then it doesn’t mean it will give you comfort as a sofa but it’s the most comfortable when you do a lot of sitting work in your office or at home.
ANCHEER Mount Ergonomic Black Mesh Computer Chair
Indeed the best ergonomic chair in this list. This chair is not cheap. It’s expensive but what it has will blow you away. The chair is kind of automatic which uses buttons for different functions. Not only it looks cool but it’s very durable with high density and high strength polyester mesh material which also ensures proper breathability.
The back support has two segments which makes it good for tall persons. The back comes with flexible lumbar support which is very strong and durable. The seat height, headrest height, backrest height and the arm rest height can be adjusted which makes is ideal for any height and weighted person.
The seat mesh is very good feature which will allow the air pass through it to your body and you won’t be sweaty in summers. Personally I like these chairs on which you can sit several hours without sweating.
Below the seat there are three buttons, each for different purpose.
- The first one is for Lean back tilting adjustment
- The second one is for seat forward or backward adjustment
- The third one is for chair up or down adjustment
This chair can also tolerate the weight upto 665Lbs and has passed SGS and BIMFA test. These are just some good features and there are several incomparable features too which I don’t feel to write in this article otherwise it will make it too lengthy but most of them I have covered to make it sure that you won’t think much before buying it.
