Investing in an ergonomic office chair can save your spine (and money) in the long run, even if you spend most of your time standing at your desk. We tested four, then had a chiropractor select the best. After several 'Men's Journal' staffers sat in each chair over a period of two weeks, we called in Dr. Leon Aibinder, a New York City chiropractor and ergonomics expert who focuses on sports-related injuries, so he could take a seat. He evaluated each chair based on overall support, comfort, and ease of use.
Steelcase surveyed the habits of 2,000 people to create this chair. The result? An über-adjustable seat built to stay supportive during both standard postures (such as typing) and nine new ones based on our modern technological tendencies (such as leaning back with a tablet).
Dr. Aibinder says: "It's very stiff, with excellent overall support. And its arms are very adjustable. The controls are a bit complicated though." [From $979; steelcase.com]
