    The two most basic requirements for a safe chair are:

    Adjustable height positions
    Adjustable back positions

    Personally I have a leather, high back executive style chair - v.v. comfy indeed

    Ergonomically, my chair is the worst, it is one of our dining room chairs. No adjustments possible. Why do I use it? Simple, however I slouch in it, it makes no noise. My ergonomic computer chair creaks and squeaks whenever I shift position. Now, consider, it is me that cannot sleep at night, the computer, ( and therefore the chair), is right outside the bedroom where my darling wife is sleeping.

    Quiet chair, bad back, contented wife, figure...
    Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity unto the dream.
