If on the second question you still said yes, then you may not be using your chair properly. When you buy office chair, there should be no expectation that it will magically make everything right. The chair, while providing comfort, should be used in such a way that you are able to take advantage of the ergonomic features and advantages that it brings. If after changing your chair, you have not changed the way you sit, or perhaps have not adjusted other aspects of your work environment, then, you won’t be able to take full advantage of the health benefits your chair can give you.
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.
There are many points to think about when purchasing your ergonomic office chair. You have to look for a seat that is adjustable, so that you can modify it to suit your own special requirements. You also want to find a seat that can support your back (as should be) and spine, specially in the lumbar area, which can help prevent pain and injury caused by sitting in the same position for long periods of time. You also want to make certain that the seat is big enough to be comfy also. You should look for an office chair that has arm rests, which can hold up your arms as you type, avoiding shoulder and neck damage, as well as a chair that can swivel.
The glide wheels are great, move smoothly and make for a much easier transition than springs. However, the wheels make a small noise as you recline the chair, leading this reviewer to believe that the sound could turn into an annoyance after years of use.
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.
