You all can guess what I do for a living. It’s pretty obvious. But did you know I am a professional “sitter”? In fact, I think I’m the best at sitting than just about anyone. Writing and reporting, I spend countless hours cultivating this talent. Because of such, my derrière had launched a veritable insurrection accompanied by a siege of chronic back pain. Needless to say, my exalted skills in sitting began to suffer. So the hunt for a posterior savior is afoot. It could be the Lorell High Back Multi-Task Chair or the one below. Or, maybe something different like the best office chair.

This might be a good time to read about office chair brands so you can make the right choice. That way you won’t be stuck learning how to fix an office chair that leans forward ever again. If you want an office chair that breaks the norm, take a look at our review of the Sprang office chair (brings back the ball: is it worth it?) too.

ReGeneration Chair 2

Enter the ergonomic ReGeneration Flex office chair from Knoll. This liberator of the “tuckus” gives new meaning to the term “armchair athlete”.  The model sent to us is colored black. But they all look great with stylized contours that will compliment any modern desk or office space. Knoll also offers several ways for you to customize your chair before you buy. They’re various types of fabrics for the cushion, the flex back netting comes in different types, and the base, or feet, come in dark plastic or polished aluminum. Our unit features “Onyx” flex netting and cushion fabric as well as a dark plastic base. Check out our HON Exposure review for another chair model with several material options. Or, if you prefer a drafting-style chair with a foot ring, read our Office Star Deluxe mesh-back drafting chair review.

On the other hand, for those interested in PU leather and massage features, you’ll like our Home Office massage and ergonomic desk chair.

ReGeneration Chair 5

The ReGeneration chair serves up some impressive features. Like the Learniture adjustable-height stool, you can adjust the height of the chair, and the depth of the seat cushion, independently raise or lower each armrest, tighten/loosen the back for enhanced lumbar support, and more. Making adjustments is super easy using the levers under the seat. It’s so convenient I have no problem readjusting for the three different folks who now sit in it regularly – my cute stubby-legged -leg wife and long-legged daughter. For a self-adjusting chair, take a close look at our review on the Backstrong chair Kickstarter that swivels you into proper posture. Being able to adjust the seat depth is important as it helps to stop sliding out of your office chair, which is a common issue for some people. An adjustable seat also helps with office chair blood flow, allowing you to ensure your legs are comfortable and not negatively affecting your circulation.

One size really does fit all, with a few adjustments here and there.  Sit in it how you want. The wide lower back supports you effectively while sitting straight up or sitting at an angle sideways. Although, you can sit “any way you want” in the Jaxx Pivot bean bag chair, too.

I can’t speak highly enough about this product. The seating options are heaven-sent. I can adjust the height of the armrests for gaming and the position of the armrest padding for typing. With the ability to adjust the seat height and seat depth along with the many customization options, this desk chair would be a great purchase so that you can sit in an office chair made just for you.

ReGeneration Chair 4

This little cut of excellence is proof, that Knoll has mastered the “game of thrones,” in more ways than one. The ReGeneration plays to your environmentalist sensibilities by using materials constructed from several eco-friendly sources. Corn by-products for the flex back, 35 “environmental fabrics,” aluminum, recyclable plastics, and more are among these. Good job Knoll! Mother Nature commends you for using recycled materials and helping our planet.

The ReGeneration may not come cheap. But are your back and buttocks not worth the ergonomic love? My parting words… They’ve gone and put a big cheek-to-cheek smile on my badonkadonk. Now there’s a visual. And if you need a cheaper option, check out our Duramont ergonomic office chair review.

Bottom Line: Some of the best love to which you could ever treat your bum. Just be prepared to sacrifice an arm or leg for that price.

  • Numerous seating options
  • Easy and effective adjustment options

  • A throne of such regal status doesn’t come cheap!
