Right now I am sitting reclined in my recliner with a laptop computer on a pillow in my lap, currently laid off. Also in the living room is this big ugly un-ergonomic highback office chair I bought several years ago because it was the ONLY one I could find that would tilt BACKWARD and lock in place. Fortunately my last contract job was in a place you could drive a truck into and I was allowed to bring this thing in, though it was kind of embarassing to be forced to show the world that you have a problem in such a visible way. The "ergonomics" guy at the company happened to see the thing and was horrified and got me one of the latest newest wizbang ergonomic chairs they were then upgrading to. I tried it and could not STAND it - the seat would not lilt backward, forward tilting seats, that is sliding downhill on your tailbone - OUCH - is the latest fad. Also the seat is too shallow, for a woman only 5'5'', and the back feels like it is pushing you forward onto the floor. I must recline backward with my knees elevated - period - anything else causes my spasmed back muscles to fight gravity. Maybe some of us just cant sit up straight with our feet flat on the floor in a "proper" position ?? So I went back to my old slouchy chair and nobody objected. Unfortunately the company lost their contract an I will have to face this embarrasing problem with chairs in looking for a job in addition to a bad economy.
