In an office, the tall guys usually walk with a slouch.
That’s because office chairs are one-size-fits-all. That’s fine for short people, but it doesn’t work for tall people.
Short chairs force tall peoples knees above a 90 degree angle, they force the back in an awkward position. All little office chairs (even normal sized chairs) are uncomfortable.
I searched high and low for a comfortable, tall office chair and had no luck finding one (business idea?).
So I went ahead and did something out of the ordinary….
I started using a barstool as an office chair.
Back pain is down. Hamstring tightness is down.
I’m very happy to sit at my computer and work whereas before I’d end up leaving to a coffee shop just so I could stretch out my back, or I’d end up working in bed (which is also awful).
The barstool office chair gets a B+ from me.
