Holiday Gift Ideas 9: Save your back with this super adjustable ergonomic chair

Ergomeister FAEZ5ERG Ergonomic Office Chair

If you've ever had experiences with a particularly bad office chair, chances are the consequences can reach further than just back pain. Not wanting to sit on a bad chair can mean time spent away from the desk, which can result in either having to work somewhere less conducive like on a dining table or in bed, or just not working entirely.

Enter the Ergomeister FAEZ5ERG, one of Ergomeister's two options for ergonomic chairs. 

The name of the game for Ergomeister is adjustability, and the company bills its chairs as 'The World's First Fully Customisable Office Chair' in big lettering on its website. And indeed, many of the FAEZ5ERG components are adjustable (though it's debatable if they are indeed the first to do so).

The lumbar support, which Ergomeister dubs Lumbar+, can be adjusted to fit the curvature of your lower back, while the entirety of the backrest can be reclined up to 135 degrees. You'll also be able to adjust the seat backwards and forwards, in addition to its depth. The armrest is rather mobile as well, as apart from being able to move front, back and in height, it's also rotatable. Features standard to regular office chairs are here as well, including an adjustable headrest and chair height.

Finally, the FAEZ5ERG features what Ergomeister calls its 'German Fabric Air-Scape 3-Layered Mesh', which, as the name suggests, weaves three different layers of fabrics with a focus on ventilation. 

If there ever was an investment with great intangible returns, it would be an ergonomic office chair, especially as office workers spend an average of about seven hours sitting at their work stations (and now in their homes), according to a 2016 study by the NUS Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health and NUS Business School.

While that level of sedentariness certainly can't be healthy, back pain from an uncomfortable chair can't help. Since working from home is common these days, there's a tendency some might still be using a dining table chair than a proper work chair that is attuned to supporting your back and distributing your weight in the right manner. So while we all strive to get up a little bit more, for the moments where you have to be strapped to a chair, perhaps consider the Ergomeister FAEZ5ERG. If you're interested, you can get it on Ergomesiter's website for S$499. As an added bonus, you get a 15-year warranty, a 60-day trial with a money-back guarantee and free assembly.

And if you can splurge a little more, there's the even more customizable S$899 Ergomeister FAEZ8ERG for consideration, though the FAEZ5ERG featured here offers quite a bit of value without forgoing much.
