    Will a fancy chair make me sit properly?

    I've been looking on & off at a nice ergonomic chair to replace my old bog-standard wheelie chair. But one of my main seating issues is simply that I tend to perch on the front of the seat and lean forward. I catch myself doing it but can't seem to break the habit.

    I worry that no expensive chair will help if I don't actually sit in the damn thing, or will it encourage/force me to do so? I've even wondered about some way to 'tie' myself in, that will alert me if I lean too much... like a piece of thread of elastic or something!

    The good ones move and lean forward with you and you can adjust the relative position of the arse support and back to fit the length of your thighs.

    You also need to consider the hight of your desk.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

      Yes, get a Herman Miller Aeron chair.

      They are brilliant.

          The aerons are great chairs as long as you get the right one for your body size and shape.

          If you want to learn to sit properly then you need one of these : Anti-burst Swiss ball - 55cm from the yoga shop where Yogamatters

          These chairs are also very good. I have one myself

            But how will it force me to sit properly, rather than make sure my spine is protected if I choose to sit properly rather than hunch over my keyboard?

              It won't. if anything it will weaken your core muscles because your back will be over supported.

                ClientCo H&S person seems to be hooked on those too. Anyone who complains of back pain is offered a ball to sit on. Apart from looking silly a quick Google suggests they might even be harmful.

                  The screen has to be up to the right height. If you use a Laptop you´ll always end up hunched over the desk. You need a screen to be high up more or less at head hight.

                    And attending an Alexander Technique trainer will have you standing and sitting properly.
