    Hey guys, I need help finding a good, ergonomic chair for someone (me) with scoliosis. I'm mainly looking for a decently adjustable chair with good lumbar support. I have some piece of crap staples office chair and it's killing my back, so it's time for me to step up to something nicer. Any ideas? Personal recommendations? What do you guys use?
    Thanks!

    The Steelcase models can be had for a "steal" on eBay :rolleyes:

    As compared to the Aeron bottoming out at ~$400

    Probably at the MOST $500... is that a reasonable amount?

    I've heard good things about both, but I think the Herman Miller Aeron is way out of my price league... or can it be found cheap?

    Also, any specific Steelcase model you would recommend?

    I just got a basic, $89.99 Ikea leather chair and I like it a lot. Then again, I only spend about 2 hours a day in front of my computer, so it's ergonomics don't really matter (it is really comfy though).

    What he said - 'Herman Miller', all the way, you'll never have to buy another office chair, once you have one of these...

    Yeah, I spend anywhere from 6-8 hours a day in and out of the chair, so I really need something good. In regards to the Herman Miller Aeron chair, aren't they over $700 or 800? Or can they be found cheap(er) online? New, gently used, refurbished... doesn't really matter to me!

    $350?! You lucky bastard! ;)
