Over the years one chair has set the standard for ergonomic seating in Australia. Many healthcare professionals say that it is the best ergonomic chair, it is definitely at least one of the top ergonomic chairs. You will see this chair in many government buildings and corporate offices. The Gregory Inca is constantly one of the best rated ergonomic office chairs.
Designed by a Physio, it utilises a split seat to encourage and help the user to sit in a better posture. We carry the Gregory Inca in stock, and it is available with 3 different size backs, and 3 different size seats. It is very important to sit on a chair that ‘fits’ you, by offering these different sizes there is an Inca chair that will suit you and help relieve discomfort and pain from sitting.
For those that are shorter, taller or heavier than average; we have distinctive chairs to suit you as well.
For shorter people, the Gregory Petite chair is a popular option.
The seat is only 410mm deep, so it will give you the desired gap between the end of the seat, and the back of your leg. This gap helps with blood circulation and comfort.
The gap that you should look for is around 2-3 fingers, this is a great way of working out the seat depth that you need.
Tall people are not without options either. Many of the best ergonomic task chairs are able to be optioned up with either an Extra Large Seat or a Seat Slide. As mentioned before the depth of the seat is very important, and taller people need a deeper seat.
A Seat Slide is an adjustment that can slide the seat out up to an extra 50mm. Seat Slides are great upgrades for taller people, and also multi-user workstations, so that the chair will fit a variety of peoples sizes.
One of the best ergo chairs for taller people is the Ergoform Chair. This features a large seat measuring 500mm Deep, and it also features a seat slide as standard.
The majority of our chairs are rated to around the 135KG, but don’t fear if you are heavier than that. We have chairs rated to 150KG and 160KG such as the Buro Persona (150kg) and the Ergo Grand (160KG).
