• Memory-foam seat and lumbar cushioning will conform to your body’s
exact contour, providing evenly distributed support and reducing stress
on pressure points.
• Padded and/or adjustable headrest provides proper back and neck support.
• Adjustable lumbar support caters to your individual support needs, minimizing stress on the spine. This feature allows change in support position
periodically to reduce back fatigue.
• Center-pivot and tilting seat plate allows for change in leg angle while
reclining, reducing leg fatigue and increasing circulation.
• Knee-tilt seat plate allows for change in leg angle while reclining, reducing
leg fatigue and increasing circulation. Forward-pivot designs allow feet to
remain flat on the floor and enable you to maintain proper posture.
• Synchro seat plate allows for change in leg angle while reclining, reducing
leg fatigue and increasing circulation. This feature also allows you to
recline the backrest at a 2: 1 ratio in relation to the seat, which provides
an added ergonomic benefit in that the body angle is allowed to open up
during recline, allowing for increased circulation in legs and back while
reducing fatigue. (With a center-pivot or knee-tilt seat plate, the body
angle remains constant.)
• Multi-paddle mechanism provides all of the benefits of the synchro
seat plate with the added benefits of adjustable seat angle, adjustable
back angle and adjustable back height for custom fit of lumbar
support and headrest.
• Waterfall seat-edge design promotes leg circulation.
• Fingertip controls on arms reduce the need for bending and straining
to adjust components. A

For example, ancient Egyptian chairs were
made of ebony and ivory and covered

became a piece of furniture available to
whomever could afford it. From then on,
the chair commonly became a reflection
of style from period to period.
CHAIR MATS SAVE
FLOORS AND BACKS
ROLLING AN OFFICE CHAIR around a carpeted
floor in the home office or at work can be a
real pain—for both the floor and you! Casters
can cause serious, permanent damage to
the floor or carpet. What’s more, constantly
pushing the chair around during the typical
workday can lead to leg fatigue and lower
The best and simplest solution is a chair mat.
You can instantly improve the ergonomics of
your work space, reducing the effort required
to roll your chair by as much as 82 percent
(compared to rolling on unprotected carpet). In
addition, you’ll lessen the chance of floor damage, extend the life of your flooring surface and
even protect it from the occasional spill. A
