Ergonomic office desk and chairs
I have one of these – http://www.posture-chair.co.uk/ – it’s great. I’ve had it for about 10 years

Following my previous thread about sciatica/bad back, I am looking at sorting out my working day (seeing it is most of what I do). Sorting stuff out at work will take time and I want to get my back better now! Fortunately I can work at home some of the time (especially now teaching is over till October) so I am looking to try and get stuff sorted faster.
Physio suggests I stand up a lot more (8-12 hour days at the desk with bad posture are slowly killing me!). Currently looking at sit/stand electric desk like this one by Conset. Anyone use anything like this and any recommendations, thoughts, things to look out for?
Also need to (probably in a couple of months once I have save some money again) source a new chair as our current one is pretty basic (though well-used comfortable!). I’m intrigued by these sit-stand stools, particularly this muvman. Similarly anyone any thoughts/experience?!Posted 3 years agoajcMember
Sit stand desks are great to mix up your body position during the day. It’s best to get some advice and fitted properly for a chair and desk especially if you have an existing health issue. Your employer is obliged to give you a workstation assessment. It is not really possible to recommend a chair without seeing your size/body proportions. A stool may suit some but they are really not recommended for sitting for any length of time. The best advice is to not sit for too long at a time. Get up and walk around when you are on the phone etc.Posted 3 years ago
Thanks ajc – a very useful reply. I am going down to a specialist shop tomorrow to look at a desk and have a chat with them and at work I have a workplace assessment booked for a couple of weeks, so you make a very valid point, best to get proper feedback before just jumping into stuff.Posted 3 years ago
What I linked to on your other thread:
Bambach Saddle ChairBigblackshed – I hadn’t forgotten your suggestion at all. Just looking at a range of ideas. Thank you though.

New standing desk is in place and its very good. Only worked on it for a few hours, but being able to switch between sitting and standing is very handy (unlike my bodge!). Highly recommended for your office. Few copies of singletrack under the comp screen raises it to the correct height!
I also had a look and play with one of these crazy and not cheap Hag sit-stand seats. They look a bit bonkers, but very clever idea. The upholstered version (which is a lot more comfortable than the plastic ‘budget’ version) is around £700!!! Anything ergonomic/healthy aint cheap!Posted 3 years ago
