Here's the thing I mean:<br><br><a href="http://www.awardposturechairs.com.au/images/sitting2.jpg" target="_blank">http://www.awardposturechairs.com.au...s/sitting2.jpg</a><br><br>
(I don't have that exact model.)<br><br><br><br>
Does anyone use one of these?<br><br>
I have been using one for the past few days, and while it does feel better, I am having some trouble; such as my shins becoming sore (but then they aren't accustomed to taking a third of my weight).<br><br>
Maybe mine isn't right for my height.... but I got it free (the previous owner paid $500) so I can't complain.

I could really use something more posture-friendly than the chair I use at home in front of the computer. However, I also like a back to a chair. *shrugs* Keep us informed!

My boss has one, she uses it when she's reading. I'd like to try one, I cross my legs in regular chairs and then get sore from the poor circulation. (I sit about 70% of my waking hours <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> )

I also like sitting in unconventional ways, like indian style, legs tucked under my rear, both pulled up to my chest, etc. That chair looks like a good thing to try, but I don't think it would be a good all-the-time chair.

I use one at work a lot. It is amazingly comfortable. I have always enjoyed those chairs, and they are great for your back!

They are (supposed) to be better for you back.<br><br><br><br>
It strenghtens your back musles and make you sit more upright.<br><br><br><br>

I had trouble concentrating on reading and writing and arithmetic when using this kind of seat. I was comfortable to sit in for awhile, and do nothing in, but ultimately, I couldn't be productive in it. The act of sitting in it distracted from my deskwork, much the way I might be distracted if there was a radio or tv on in the next room.

Same here. I never sit right... and I never sit still.

Well, so far I seem to sit better in 'normal' chairs.... I keep working out ways to sit incorrectly in this one (and my shins are SORE).<br><br><br><br>
It also seems to be too high for this desk, and I need to have my monitor higher.
