When choosing an ergonomic task chair, customer reviews can be a useful tool in helping you make your decision. One of the best collections of ergonomic task chair reviews can be found on the website Digital Trends, which is dedicated to home and office technology. In this article, we will summarize the ergonomic task chair reviews from that site.
A Kinnarps Ergonomic Task Chair Reviewed
Most of the ergonomic task chairs reviewed on Digital Trends were manufactured by Herman Miller. The sole exception was the Kinnarps Plus 8 Office Chair, made in Sweden, but available in limited quantities in the US. There were no user reviews of the chair, but Digital Trends themselves provided an extensive review, rating it 8 out of 10. The reviewer praised its stylish design (the Scandinavians seem to have a way with furniture design) but warned that it had the potential to be expensive due to its scarcity in the US and the sheer number of optional extras on offer. Virtually every aspect of the Kinnarps Plus 8 can be customized to the user's specification, making every chair unique. This means that it is probably not recommended for businesses with a high turnover of staff. The chair is 100% recyclable, making it suitable for the environmentally aware office.
Herman Miller Ergonomic Task Chairs Reviewed
Herman Miller is one of the world's largest office furniture manufacturers, and the number of reviews of their products on Digital Trends relative to Kinnarps reflects this. Their best reviewed ergonomic task chair was the Mirra task chair, with a perfect 10 out of 10. The Mirra is a mesh chair that provides superior comfort and value for money. A user who had been in an auto accident praise the chair, saying that it had taken the pressure off his shoulders and neck, alleviating his pain.
The Freedom Chair is a more traditional fabric ergonomic task chair. This was not so well reviewed, with three users giving it an average 6.5 out of 10. The worst of these only gave it 3 out of 10, dismissing it as a "sci-fi chair" and calling it "annoying". She went on to say that the only people in her office who used it without complaint were "3 tall people and the short fat guy that ordered our chairs without consulting anyone first".
The other reviews were more positive, giving it a 7 and a 9 out of 10. However, even these conceded that the chair "takes some getting used to" and that it is not very durable. All the reviews mentioned parts breaking off the chair, though they disagreed as to how big an issue it was. For one it was a major problem, for the other two, merely a minor annoyance.
