Yeah, the Embody is HM top-of-the-line, correct? Really nice, but out of my price range unfortunately...
...unless I go used of course. Nice to see it's helping you out after your accident! That's when high-end chairs like these really make a difference.
Considering that these chairs are kept for years, and even outlast our PCs, I want to make sure I get the right one especially since my back has been bothering me lately. I kind of ignored it before and used any chair, but now the simple act of sitting in a comfortable chair is a big deal to me (I'm an old man now
Try out the realspace pro quantum. OD has a 14 day return on chairs. It's on sale right now for $249.99 and probably google, ebay or ejunkie a $30 discount coupon to stack it on top of sale price. I really couldn't be any happier with this chair especially now that summer is coming and my butt will be happy about summer for the first time
The good thing about Pro quantum is you can sit with both of your feet up on the chair without the side corners of the chair hurting you unlike herman miller aeron with the side flapped up. It's very comfortable no matter what kind of sitting position you are in meditation, indian, sideways and etc. I also purchased their 2 year furniture protection plan for $39.99 just in case the mesh or whatever parts breaks during use. I can let nephews and nieces play around it with scissors or anything sharp in their hands(not that i'd let them and be the irresponsible adult) and not worry about the chair
Also the build quality is really excellent. I must say it does feel and look very expensive. Frames are solid steel and armrest feels very comfortable and very thick and sturdy and able to swivel sideways. It's simply well built "LIKE A ROCK"
I also tested Staples TP8000 tempurpedic chair and in the end i ended up deciding on this chair. TP8000 although also comfortable causes me to sweat down there and with the summer coming and all don't want to torture them this year. Pro Quantum and TP8000 were the ones I was looking into in the beginning, because they both have the multiple adjustments I needed for a task chair.
Here's my Pro Quantum in action:
