Ergohuman High Back Swivel Chair with Headrest Review

One of the top and most premium chairs we’ve ever reviewed, the Ergohuman High Back Swivel Chair is not for the casual user and is more appropriate for executive office settings. 

This high back chair is the staple high-end solution to most office seating problems. It was designed for workers by health specialists who’ve finely designed every little piece of this chair to be as ergonomic and as healthy as possible.

Many see this chair as one of the most adjustable chairs that are currently on the market. You can fine tune it to give you a perfectly tailored seating experience that is personalized to your requirements – and it doesn’t even take very long to set up!

And if that color doesn’t get you impressed, fret not, as this high back chair also comes with a self-adjusting lumbar support. The lumbar support automatically adjusts its tension, based on how you sit into it. It also features an auto-tilt mechanism on the recliner, which helps move the center of gravity of the chair, based on how far back you tilt it.

You can use this Ergohuman swivel chair it for computer gaming but the average gamer in our experience doesn’t have the budget to afford a chair like this. It’s definitely not for the average user and considered a luxury chair for executive users. This chair has the typical mesh look you could expect to see in your boss’s office.

While this chair does come at a premium, you’ve got to remember that it comes with the manufacturer’s lifetime warranty. You’re buying an extremely high-end chair that’s designed to improve productivity by having a direct impact on an individual’s health and allowing them to customize and adjust the chair to their liking. We think that this certainly is a very good deal.

This Ergohuman chair has a pretty unique design and it’s not something you see every day in a common household setting. This Ergohuman chair has a high back mesh cover and it’s great for allowing a lot of breathing room. Why do so many office chairs use a mesh design? Because it eliminates a lot of sweating or odor for people who sit at their desk for hours a day. Especially when you’re dressed up in a suit and tie every day, you’re probably going to sweat and these types of chairs are great for breathing room. isn't Ergohuman great?


If there’s one area of expertise we can say that Ergohuman chair nails every time, it’s definitely the durability of their chairs. We’ve never once doubted an Ergohuman swivel chair and they typically go above and beyond the majority of office chairs in the market. The Ergohuman swivel chair could work great as a gaming chair, it’s definitely durable but as we said before, this isn’t something a lot of people can afford and their budget won’t allow for a luxury chair like this. The cylinders, the lift, the base, the wheels and everything else is designed with pure quality.

The base of the Ergohuman swivel chair has an interesting dip feature which may not look comfortable to sit in but we can assure you that it most definitely is. What happens when you sit down is, that dip on the seat of the chair will actually even out and work with those mesh holes in conjunction to provide a perfect seat. Essentially the chair will adapt to your body and remove any pressure points that would cut down your blood circulation.

There are a lot of areas that can be adjusted based on your height and body weight to make it ideal ergonomic chair specifically based on you and your body.

There’s a tilting mechanism that’s synchronized with movement and with the steel base of the chair. Along with durability, everything this chair was designed for, is also for comfort. You can lock in the recline of the chair in three different positions, or use the tension knob to control how easily it rocks back if you don't want the recline to be locked. Whether you are sitting upright or reclining, the Ergohuman seat depth adjustment will make sure your sitting position is correct so your posture is right. The Ergohuman chair will keep you from feeling fatigue from sitting for too long.

The Ergohuman chair aren’t the most comfortable things we’ve ever seen but the chair itself definitely makes up for that.

I’ve played games longer than I can remember. My first memories come from the godly Super Nintendo console of which I was quite fond. I enjoyed playing Mario, Zelda, Kirby, and especially Sonic. Obviously, when technology made some progress, I just couldn’t stop immersing myself into this fantastic hobby, and clearly that takes several sitting hours. came up from the idea that there is always a better way to enjoy a gaming experience, and that is not only limited to the game itself but to our health. The best office or gaming chair is ideal to keep us going during intensive sessions of gaming while also taking care of our spine, knees, hips, neck, and ankles. This website will offer you totally honest best gaming chairs reviews according to my experience or knowledge.
