    Truly a Second Spine

    Posted by Bob Branson on Feb 17th 2016

    When researching ergonomic chairs, I read a review in Popular Mechanics that referred to the chair as a second spine. That was hard to imagine, after all, how can a chair connect with your spine and move all around with you? Well, it does! The chair is perfectly contoured to fit and has a counter balance system that adjusts to your weight, no springs, and it actually moves with you. Incredible support and comfort. I would like to see the arms adjust a little higher up but for most tasks they are fine. Plus, I'm tall. The head support automatically moves forward so you can maintaine a forward looking position when you lean back and still have neck support. All part of the second spine description. It works well and is actually very comfortable. The chair had a slight nick in the seat when delivered. Humanscale arranged for a prompt seat replacement. They offered to send a technician to repair it but it was easy to replace. Customer service is excellent and they stand behind their product, both the manufacturer and the seller. Oh yes, build quality. Very high quality. Comfortable, perfect back and spine support and a first class organization. Highly recommended.
