That said, though the headrest is designed to lean back as you lean back your head, the springs are fairly strong and for those with weak neck muscles, it can often feel like it is forcing your head forward. The best solution is to keep the headrest reclined.
Do not make the error of believing that just because you have an ergonomic office chair that you can sit slumped before the computer all day and not feel any kind of back or neck pain. You still should be aware to a good sitting position, and sit with your feet flat on the floor, to avoid strain or injury.
Task chairs - these are the normal everyday office furniture chairs that most people use at home. These can be very cheap, acquired at your local discount store for under $30, or can be ten times this amount for a good one that will last awhile. These can be cloth, leather (real or fake) or made of other man made materials. Many will have ergonomic features such as lumbar support, and are also adjustable in multiple ways. Most of us can find a task chair that will suit our daily use, you just have to take the time to try out a fair number of them to discover what will work best for you.
To keep your neck from straining, your view of your screen should be at the lower half of your viewing angle. Your forearms should also be parallel to the ground while you type on your keyboard. This is the most relaxed and natural position for your arms to be in while typing. You may be able to adjust your chair up to a certain point, or even to the height you can comfortably view your computer display and keep your arms on the correct position, but what about your legs and feet? Are your feet able to stay flat on the ground and keep your legs from dangling?
The Algoma company makes, not a beach chair, but a beach couch. It is called the SportCouch beach chair. Quite handy, it folds up like a regular beach chair, but sits two adults or three kids, comfortably side by side. And though it holds up to 500 lbs., it weighs less than 10 lbs. It has a sturdy aluminum frame covered with a strong weather resistant fabric, and wooden arm rests. But, that extra something that Algoma includes with their SportCouch is 2 detachable zippered pockets that hang on the back of the chair for handy storage of anything you may need for an outing: water bottles, sunscreen, keys, phones, book or magazine, etc. Besides the beach, these are really handy for sporting events, family get togethers, or a day at the park.
