Yew Apr 20, 2007

a very old, beautiful, yew, half-backed Windsor chair.
I've tried all those kneelers and other (back health) chairs. This one fits me and I fit it the best

HAG ergonomic kneeler, love it Apr 20, 2007

I have been using this kind of chair for about 12 years. I had back pain, shoulder pain, stomach pain before that, and I tried all different kind of traditional chairs: adjustable, simple, hard, soft, until I found this one. It resolved my problems.

My chair is my throne Apr 20, 2007

Perhaps it’s because it’s Friday afternoon but this question made me think of the words to Rodgers and Hammerstein's 1957 musical Cinderella:

Cinderella: I'm as mild and as meek as a mouse
When I hear a command I obey.
But I know of a spot in my house
where no one can stand in my way.
In my own little corner in my own little chair
I can be whatever I want to be.
On the wings of my fancy I can fly anywhere
and the world will open its arms to me.
I'm a young Norwegian princess or a milkmaid
I'm the greatest prima donna in Milan
I'm an heiress who has always had her silk made
By her own flock of silkworms in Japan
I'm a girl men go mad for love's a game I can play with
cool and confident kind of air.
Just as long as I stay in my own little corner
All alone in my own little chair.
I can be whatever I want to be.
I'm a slave from Calcutta I'm a queen in Peru.
I'm a mermaid dancing upon the sea
I'm a huntress on an African safari.. it's a dangerous type of sport and yet it's fun
In the night I sally forth to seek my quarry
And I find I forgot to bring my gun.
I am lost in the jungle all alone and unarmed when I meet a lioness in her lair
Then I'm glad to be back in my own little corner,
All alone in my own little chair.

Have a great weekend!!

At the moment? Apr 20, 2007

A "replacement", as I moved to another city and my chair didn't arrive yet. But my "normal" chair is fully adjustable.

my good old chair Apr 21, 2007

19th century solid oak pub chair.
*Made* to be sat in for long periods.
Tried the ergonomic adjustable ones.
This one is way better.

My big purple ball: I sit confortable, and I can even dance a bit when I translate and listen to my favorite music.

Other: it was ergonomic and adjustable Apr 21, 2007

Today, it's a green rags chair (you can see frame inside), four casters working, the fith caster is broken, and it squeaks when I move...
Yeah, I need a new chair!

Regards

Clarisa

At the moment, Apr 21, 2007

as I am moving back from the US to Ecuador with my family, I am sitting on a stool, the most horrible thing to sit on while one is working at a computer (my opinion anyway).
Otherwise, I have a fully adjustable chair that I love. I can't wait to get it back!
Have a good week end everyone!

Recommended to you all people with back problems! Or you may use the ball mentioned above, it's probably as efficient and much cheaper.

I agree with Katalin, and I would change for anything else, just wonderful and very good for your posture.

change :-)) Apr 21, 2007

I have a fully adjustable chair, we moved to new office 3-4 weeks ago, but today I cleaned the floor and just in this moment realized: I am sitting NOT in my own chair, because I put my chair to the translation coordinator's desk and I am sitting in visitor's chairDDDD

Fully adjustable office chair with a tall back and arm rests Apr 22, 2007

I think I've gone through at least three or four chairs in the past three years. That is when I decided to go to a special office furniture store to buy the biggest, best and most comfortable chair they had in stock. It is still not quite what I need, as I am a tall man (6'6"), but that is the case with several things.

I find that the seating arrangement for the translator only helps part of the problem when it comes to good health. It is so important to get up out of the chair and out of the house and get moving. It is also necessary to find a way to have days away from the computer.
