WFH Chair Recommendations

Have a pretty good WFH set-up, but could use a chair upgrade as its a little old and clunky. Thinking of spending part of my stipend on it.

No real parameters just not crazy expensive or too big.

Anyone have any good recommendations?

Not too sure about gaming chairs as they use fake leather

Wow guess I haven't been in the chair market for a while, not going to spend $1k for a Herman Miller or Steelcase.

Anyone have this MyoChair or thoughts on it?

I just picked up a used Steelcase Leap v2 for $250 off FB Marketplace. Saw a number of different Herman Millers (Mirra 2, Aeron) available for $200-$350 at the same time that looked pretty decent.

Someone on here recommended I get this, I thankfully maxed out my FSA and got a dr's note to expense it. It's amazing

Get @dr_mantistoboggan_MD or someone to write you a note and you're golden. It can be like that Seinfeld episode where they get a note from Jerry's dentist for physical therapy massages.

How much was the chair you got? Have you compared it with other chairs?

Any taller guys find that most chairs (even adjustable) don't offer enough seat depth? If anyone has found a chair that's good for that let me know thanks

So this is expensive, but I find the Herman Miller embody chair to be excellent. It is solid for taller people (although not sure if tall for you is a bit above 6 ft or you are talking about a 7 footer) and has a fair bit of adjustments you can make. I prefer this chair to the aeron. Keep in mind that you can't adjust the position of the lumbar support in the embody chair, and it has a higher back so if spending that much on a chair I'd sit in them (preferably work in one for a day if at all possible).

Thanks! I'm only normal tall (6'3) and 90% of chairs feel weird to me in terms of seat depth. Can't imagine what it's like for the really tall folks. I'll check this one out
