    Ergonomic chairs should be required equipment for all office workers.

    I have a lower back injury, discs L3 and L4 are bulging.

    So, my doctor wrote a note to give to my employer requesting that they purchase me an ergonomic chair. It makes a HUGE difference in remaining comfortable. In fact using an ergonomic chair is the difference between being in pain, or being comfortable.

    Mine is called a "C-pod" and it is really comfy, I dig it.

    That is one amazing looking chair. I love how the back support looks like a spine.

    I wish it would be professionally acceptable for me to sit on the floor at work. I actually love sitting on the floor...

    As it is I shift around in all different positions throughout the day. Right now I have my feet curled up under me/to the side a little bit. Sometimes I'll sit cross legged or sometimes slouch down really low so my shoulders are almost at the desk level. If I sit too long in one position it starts to get uncomfortable.

    It's wild, eh?!

    The back of it, the surface that touches the back of the person sitting in it that is, is actually mesh. Here in Florida, whether you are indoors or not, it is hot, and anything you can do to cool down is welcome. Sitting in a chair with a back like that actually does cool you down a bit, I would have never thought so until I sat in one.

    I don't think I've ever worked a job that allowed me to sit unless it was in the driver's seat! I had to get a doctor's note even to have permission to sit with a broken leg!

    Unfortunately, I've had a few clerical/office positions.. the lame chairs hurt after awhile. I had one low lvl position in an office though where I was sorting through records a lot and sitting on the ground. It was actually better.

    I used to sit on the floor or on the table when I had a clerical job... nobody cared because I could sort and file things about 10 times quicker than anyone else could

    I started doing squats about three months ago because I was developing chair-ass. Too much longer and you could have played handball of that mofo.
