Ergonomic Mesh Office Chairs

Updated on January 28, 2013

Introduction to Ergonomic Mesh Office Chairs

Ergonomic mesh office chairs are great pieces of office furniture that offers the perfect combination of looks, support, and style for any office. The extra support will help your back and other body parts from the most common wear and tear of repetitive motion office work. In addition to this, many mesh office chairs have an absolutely fantastic look that matches any office set up. There are many different types of office chairs, but by going for comfortable mesh designs to go along with ergonomic design, these pieces of office furniture offer the best combination of benefits that any possible chair could provide. Ergonomic mesh office chairs are some of the most popular around, and after sitting in one for the first time for even a few minutes, it's not at all hard to understand why.  As long as individuals need good office furniture, there's little argument that the ergonomic office furniture trend is going to continue on into the near future.


Reasons to Spring for the Ergonomic Chairs

There are many good reasons to spring for the ergonomic office chairs as opposed to other more traditional models. For one, they are designed better for both human health and comfort. It's hard to type at 80 words a minute when your legs, back, and butt hurt. Shifting around is only a temporary relief and then after enough time even that constant movement becomes a problem. If you are looking for maximum production, then get a chair that doesn't make you (or any employees) worry about staying comfortable. A good ergonomic mesh office chair is comfortable, gives the right amount of back support to the upper and lower back, and will have adjustable arms to allow you to sit at the most comfortable and healthy position while working. If you're comfortable and don't have to worry about nagging pain or discomfort, then you're much more likely to get a lot more work done since you can concentrate on the task at hand.

Why the Mesh Office Chair Design?

There might be a lot of people out there who are in favor of better and more comfortable ergonomic furniture for the office, but maybe they're wondering why this page is so big on mesh office chairs.  The answer is pretty simple: a good mesh design allows more flexibility, and it allows for more specialized designs that encourage good posture and discourage bad or harmful posture.  Plain cushions that wear down over time and are tightly formed to hold the way there are without compromise almost guarantee that the most comfortable and proper work positions will be all but impossible while working in the office.  Mesh chairs also have a nice decor quality about them which makes these good for formal and informal offices alike, as well as fitting in with almost any home office.  Heck, these even look good and fit into dorm rooms at college.  Mesh office chairs can be incredibly comfortable, as well as allowing the flexibility to be designed ergonomically to help assure maximum health and form.  That's why I'm so big on the mesh office chair design...besides, there's no chair cushions for the dog to chew up this way, either :)

How Much Do Ergonomic Office Chairs Cost?

The prices of ergonomic mesh office chairs can vary greatly from place to place and from store to store.  Obviously there are also literally dozens of different styles and designs.  The other problem that comes up is looking at the price differences between online stores and brick and mortar stores.  As you can see on the right hand part of this page, even from one single site like Amazon.com you can see a wide variety of different styles, different designs, and a range in price that varies by several hundred dollars.

Ergonomic mesh office chairs do tend to be a bit more pricey than regular office furniture, but they are well worth it when you figure in the long term increase in productivity as well as the saved costs from possible health problems that can come easily from repetitive motions, especially on the wrists and hands.  At least having your hands and wrists in the proper form will help minimize that.

Then there are the less measurable aspects that make ergonomic mesh office chairs worth the investment.  The extra comfort will lead to less pain, better moods, and higher productivity (which will also lead to a better mood).  Feeling better physically and emotionally is a definite pay off that is worth every penny.

Ergonomic Mesh Chairs, In Conclusion

Hopefully this page has given enough information to explain why I'm such a fan of ergonomic mesh office chairs.  My first really nice chair was a leather desk chair, but it wasn't ergonomically designed.  Even then I noticed the difference, but when I had my job in Austin, Texas, and sat down in an ergonomic mesh office chair for the first time - it was like the first time I had a specially designed keyboard.  The comfort and support was so excellent that I finished twice as much writing as I could normally do in a full ten hour day, and I did that in six hours.  Even since then I've been a fan.  Do any of you have stories about your favorite chairs, or maybe some horror stories about the worst and most uncomfortable office chairs you've ever had?  Please feel free to share in the comments section!  Little things can sometimes make a huge difference, and aside from still wanting that perfect cherry wood writing desk, I want the perfect black ergonomic mesh office chair to go with it.
