Ergohuman Chair Range

I already have my office chair but, if you need to buy one for yourself, I would suggest that you look no further than the Ergohuman range. I have the Nefil office chair, though my colleague swears by the Enjoy office chair model but it really depends on what you’re looking for. One of the points that should affect your decision is your body frame but the nature of your job is also important. What I mean by that second consideration is do you sit down all day long or are you always up and down, does the job involve a lot of twisting (maybe your filing cabinets are right next to you and you don’t have to actually leave your seat to put something away).

For me, the seat tilt and slide and the backrest tilt mean that I can get my back and my bottom to fit comfortably into the Nefil chair, so that I am actually using its magnificent features to support the whole of my back. That means that I am making use of the lumbar support that the chair back gives. My friend likes the Enjoy chair, as it has autoflex zones in the lumbar support feature and this does it for her.

All of the Ergohuman chair models are to die for, as a lot of thinking has gone into their design. They all have many features and adjustments and I suppose the most noticeable difference is the look of the chair. I just love the simple look and the Nefil’s chair back from the rear reminds me of the old-style beer bottle opener. The chair looks good and makes me feel good. With its ribbed look back support, the Enjoy appeals to my friend and that’s fine.

One thing we both agreed on was the choice of fabric. Though the leather is very nice, we much preferred the airiness of the mesh. It’s easy to wipe clean and is a chair that breathes, if you know what I mean. Now there is a new chair called Mirus and that is a cross-over between the Ergohuman and the Enjoy from

I’m really pleased that I was guided towards the Ergohuman Office Chair range. It was sound advice and that’s why I am passing the same information on. There’s an interesting range of colours to choose from as well. And as regards to that sound advice … don’t forget to pass it on.

Mesh Office Chairs

It can get very difficult to differentiate between some ergonomic office chairs, particularly when the names are very similar but, suffice to say, the Ergohuman Plus is the top of the range in the Ergohuman stakes, with plenty to offer the health-conscious office worker. The Ergohuman Plus is the top of the range mesh office chair.

This model is ninety eight percent recyclable and has more aluminium detailing than its close relatives, so it’s a smart looking chair with a strong frame. Its long list of adjustment possibilities mean the Ergohuman Plus can be altered to suit everyone.

One lever controls the three main adjustment areas of seat height, seat depth and back tilt, all of which get the chair to fit the smallest or tallest person. The height adjustment can cater for five foot to six foot four inches and the seat depth is particularly important, as correct adjustment keeps your back in contact with the back rest, while reducing any pressure that could fall on the knees, if the seat pad didn’t match you leg length. Like in a car, the back tilt gets the body in a good position for the arms to reach their place of work comfortably.

Arm rests are really important, as they support your arms and therefore also reduce any pull on your shoulders, guiding your hands to the desk or computer keyboard. The arm rests on the Ergohuman Plus offer multidimensional adjustments, meaning up, down, backwards, forwards and also in and out. Making sure that your elbows are placed comfortably near your body rather than splayed at a wide angle makes a huge difference to overall support.

The Plus has a seat tilt option which helps take pressure off the spine but only when adjusted correctly for its user. It really does pay to get all adjustments set to meet your needs, or the ‘ergonomic’ quality of the chair will be there in name only.

Lumbar support is essential and this ergonomic office chair boasts autoflex zones for added comfort and that important support. Adjusting the seat back will get this important feature to work for you and make long days seems less stressful.

With a matching headrest, this office must-have oozes comfort and, in a choice of either mesh or leather upholstery, you really do feel loved.

Which is the Office Chair for You?

 What is the difference between the Ergohuman office chair and the Ergohuman Plus?  Well, a good starting point will be to first look at what they have in common, then the unique little differences will be more appreciated:

  • Synchro-Tilt.  Both the seat back and the seat pad can be tilted, to afford maximum comfort to its user.  Once the back is at your desired position, it is also tension-adjustable.
  • Tilt-Lock.  By using the appropriate mechanism, you can unlock the back rest to recline and you can lock it for a fixed position.
  • Tension Control.  This allows you to rock a little in your chair and the tension can be adjusted to match a body weight of up to 250 pounds (17 stones 12 lbs.).
  • Seat Depth Adjustment.  Getting this position right means that your back is still in contact with the seat back and your thighs are fully supported, allowing your knees to fold comfortably without any seat abrasion.
  • Seat Height Adjustment.  It’s important that your feet rest flat on the floor, so getting the seat pad height right for you will allow your feet to do just that.
  • Arm Rests. They adjust up and down, forward and backwards and also left and right, meaning that they can be made very comfortable for you and help keep your lower arms horizontal, as they move towards the keyboard or office desk.

These two ergonomic office chairs then have subtle differences and, as we are all different, the element of choice is available to us:-

  • The Ergohuman has straight aluminium legs, whereas the Ergohuman Plus has a curved design.
  • The arm rests on the Ergohuman chair are black, whereas those on the Plus sport an aluminium linkage under them.  On the Plus, they are also further away from the chair.  That gives you more room to get in closer to your desk.
  • The latest model has a black cover over its under seat mechanisms but the Plus reveals its aluminium linkage.
  • The head rest linkage is black on the and aluminium on the Plus.
  • The aluminium frame on the chair back is narrower on the Ergohuman Plus design.

Though most of these differences may seem cosmetic, they add to the overall beauty of the chair, which encourages us to make choices.  On top of these considerations, you need to decide between mesh and leather. Which one is right for you?
