Chair warz.

Uhg chairs hate me and I hate them...that and I don't have 200 to put down on something worth while.


Anyway here is my problem , this is my chair http://www.amazon.com/Work-Smart-Exe.../dp/B005QHQYR0, and yes I here you snickering....

Its ok but for the fact it leans back no matter what I do a few inches, I have the tension set high on tilt and do not really use tilt mode.

I need to tilt this thing a few inches forward , that of course is not going to happen as the column the seat is on dose not turn thus I can not rig a 500LB L bracket to it.

So I thought up this, get this
http://www.amazon.com/Thermo-Sensiti...ed+chair+cover

Back it up with 3 ply plywood then extend my home made head rest for max comfort. Its that or back it up with a an adjustable beach chair.....

The reason I am posting is , is there a product pre made like the thing I am trying to create?


As always guys thanks for any help

Re: Chair warz.

why not just get a bigger monitor and a wireless keyboard and wireless mouse so you don't HAVE to lean forward?

Re: Chair warz.

I think it's a posture thing.

You could get one of these, and position it so that the thin end of the wedge is in the crack between seat and back. A roll of duct tape and hey presto, your upper body would be tilted forward at 25 degrees

It is very bloody expensive though, as is that chair. My office chair cost 29.99

Its not really leaning forward the chair rests in an uncomfortable position.

Well I got the chair fixed now I saw some extra wrench sockets I have when I was cleaning, a bit of forcing it in with a hammer and now its leaning forward a tad.


Now I need Lumbar, then I will need to make a seat belt thingy or ergonomic arm pit rests.
