The Herman Miller Aeron Task chair is one of the most popular options in the market for users who are looking for chairs that will help them deal better with their back issues. The chair comes with adjustable lumbar support, so you’ll always be able to adjust it according to how comfortable you need your back to be. The office chair has been uniquely engineered to help correct your posture, and this is actually one of the major reasons why we think that it could be the best office chair for scoliosis. Read on to find out if the Herman Miller Aeron chair might be well worth your hard-earned money.

Why We Like It – Herman Miller Aeron Task Chair

The Herman Miller Aeron Task Chair has been around since the early nineties, and has been revised only once to improve on its already spectacular back support and ergonomic features. The chair comes with adjustable arms and fully adjustable lumbar support, and is available in a sleek Satin Aluminium finish.

  • Available in 3 different sizes
  • Made of recycled materials
  • 12 Year Warranty
  • No Massage feature


Hailed as the best chair you could turn to for adequate back support, the Herman Miller Aeron chair comes with a relatively unique mechanism that helps keep the shape of your spine in check especially when you expect to be sitting down for long periods of time. Its adjustable PostureFit SL lumbar support mechanism is basically a slider that’s centered on your lower back, and that’s meant to adjust and fit the curve of your spine. This helps you sit better, and is also much more effective compared to what you’ll get with the Serta Hannah Microfiber Office Chair.


Anyone who’s going to be sitting somewhere for 8 to 10 hours a day is definitely going to want to stay comfortable, and this is a fact that the two engineers who designed the Herman Miller ergonomic office task chair understood very well. The new remastered Aeron chair comes with padded, fully adjustable arms, and an 8Z Pellicle suspension seat that offers 8 different zones of support on the back and seat of the chair – something you’ll not get with the La-Z-Boy Trafford office chair. This allows for a very comfortable seating experience and is important especially when you go through long stints of work at once.

Given these points, you’ll want this to stay at the forefront of your decision-making when looking at competing brand products, such as BossOffice Products Perfect Posture Delux fabric task chair or the Hodeda armless, low-back adjustable swiveling task chair.


The new Aeron chair allows for even easier adjustability in terms of seat angle, tilt limiter, and lumbar support for your lower back. Similar to the Alera Elusion Series Multifunction chair, the older Aeron chairs used to come with levers to control many of these adjustments, but the new Aeron chairs now come with user-friendly knobs that are a lot easier to use. You’ll now have to use knobs to adjust the seat height and the standard tilt, but for the adjustable PostureFit mechanism, you’ll just need to reach back with your hand and move it up or down until where you feel comfortable.


The Aeron chair is made up of a mesh material, but its quality is far from what you’ll find even with other Mesh office chairs. Its 8Z Pellicle Suspension Material is very easily breathable, so you shouldn’t have to worry about sweating when you’re sitting on it for long hours.

Unlike most office chairs that are only available in one size, you’ll be able to pick and choose what chair size to get with the Aeron remastered office chair. This decision is based on calculations that are done between your height and weight, and after recording your measurements, you should then be able to know whether to pick chairs between Size A, Size B or Size C. Most people tend to fall under the medium size category, which is Size B.

Herman Miller Aeron Task Chair Wrap Up

Also worth mentioning is the fact that the new Aeron chair comes with a 12-year warranty that covers basically any issue that may come up as you’re using the chair. A warranty that lasts for this long is very rare, and speaks to the kind of quality you should expect when buying an Aeron chair.
