Ergohuman or Ergohuman Plus

Why does an Ergohuman chair become a ‘plus’ chair? What was wrong with the first one? And just where does V1 and V2 come in?
The answer to question one is that there is nothing wrong with the Ergohuman and that stating ‘plus’ actually means that the Ergohuman Plus has enhanced or added features. So that’s good news, straightaway.
All Ergohuman chairs are sensibly designed, well-constructed and, might I say, stunning to the eye, so let’s see what they both have to offer, before looking at their differences:-
• They have a split backrest, with a dedicated part for the lumbar support which is independently flexible
• They have adjustable seat height and depth, back height and tension adjustment
• They have an adjustable seat recline, which means that you can alter the positioning of your body, to suit ‘on a mission’ typing or being in a more laid-back, pensive-cum- thnking mode.
• They have very clever armrests, which can be positioned just how you like them, looking at forwards, backwards, closer to or further from the user’s body frame, as well as twisted on a diagonal angle. This diagonal angle suits me perfectly, as I don’t feel comfortable when my elbows are touching my sides, so using that diagonal tilt allows my elbows to be away from my body frame but still support my lower arms on their journey towards the keyboard.
I could go on but, as you can see, both the Ergohuman and the Ergohuman Plus deliver extreme satisfaction to the person being lucky enough to have made all of the adjustments to their, and theirs only, ergonomic office chair.

So how do they differ?

It’s probably a good starting point to think of the Ergohuman Plus as being more of a designer chair. So what enhancements does the Ergohuman Plus have?
It boasts more aluminium than the Egohuman (without the Plus) chair and this can be seen in the headrest, as well as under the armrests
Its star-base legs are no longer straight but curved, giving the chair that extra appeal to the eye, a subtle but attractive change
The seat base has a forward tilt angle. This is very interesting as, even though the tilt is only four to five degrees from its normal horizontal position, this small change to the angle makes you more alert. Imagine getting ready to stand up from a sofa – you might place your hands on the sofa cushions, or maybe one of the sofa armrests, to give you that lift up but, in the Ergohuman Plus, the very subtle angle lift gives you that ‘on starter’s orders’ feel about your day. You’re ‘good to go’ with your working day and this under starter’s orders feel will probably enhance your afternoon’s performance, by fighting against that heavy feeling you may have, after eating that scrumptious meal you somehow couldn’t resist.

And the second question about what is V1 and V2. These are simply the US names for the Ergohuman office chairs. The Ergohuman V1 is a minimally adjusted Ergohuman to suit the taller and larger user, with an extra two to three centimetres on the seat width and a supporting higher gas lift. The V2 is a combination of the Ergohuman and the Ergohuman Plus and its selling point is that it has a single lever (this is available on all UK Ergohuman chairs) for performing multiple adjustments.

You really can’t go wrong with an Ergohuman. Like the name states, it looks at the human’s needs in an ergonomic, and constantly changing, working environment. Gone is the ‘dining room’ design chair which, in all fairness, might have done the job perfectly well before the digital age arrived. But not now.

Ergohuman – from Manufacture to Delivery

References are so important, aren’t they? Okay, they’re essential when applying for a job but they’re also important for many other needs.
In this moment, I’m talking chairs. Not just any chair but ergonomic office chairs. Technology in tandem with ergonomics have now produced many wonders in the office chair market but this doesn’t mean that every one of those chairs is going to be suitable for you. After all, we’re different shapes and sizes, different jobs demand different things from our personal frame and build and then there’s the other point of attraction. Yes, the ergonomic office chairs of today can be ‘very becoming (mine’s the Ergohuman Mirus)’ and so that ‘eye candy’ which normally applies to spotting good lookers might also apply to other items too. If the chair gives you that personal buzz, joining forces with it every day gives you a personal satisfaction and getting your head round the complexities of work feel naturally comfortable.

If I was ready to buy another ergonomic office chair, I would look for a supplier who could provide me with genuine references from purchasers of the models in which I was registering a personal interest. ‘Great’ may do little for me but to hear that a chair is a great piece of kit, that the user’s back clicked into place when using the chair correctly, or maybe even that someone is now feeling all-round benefits in both work and home life would make me look more into that particular office chair. I’d also be interested in feedback on the supplier and subsequent delivery time, a bit like those yellow stars you see against the details of well-seasoned Ebay sellers, telling you that they regularly come up with the goods and services expected when buying from strangers.
Me? I’d probably choose another Ergohuman Mirus, once again with mesh upholstery. Now that I know this chair and its adjustments can meet my personal needs, I might look at other chairs in the Ergohuman range e.g. the Nefil and the Ergohuman Plus, as this company, the supplier service and the delivery time, have already been proven to me. If I change anything, it would be the colour, as there’s a fantastic range to choose from.

I don’t need a new Mirus chair yet, as the Ergohuman range of chairs are very sustainable but I am going to treat myself to a footrest or a Office Chair with an intergrated Leg Rest, wow. Serving also as a leg rest when my chair is in a reclined position, this little added extra is going to heighten my pleasure during those laid back hours.
That’s me sorted … .

Ergonomic Office Chairs

We live in a designer world, where a dress is no longer a dress but a Stella McCartney number, a suit is a Versace and a car is referred to as the Porsche or some other ‘to die for’ brand name on four wheels.

So, why shouldn’t you refer to your own ergonomic office chair as a Nefil, a Mirus or a Ergohuman?

Why not?

Okay, it’ll be ‘out of the norm’ but think of the good advice you’ll be imparting to your family, friends and colleagues.

What I’m saying is – there’s an office chair but then there’s an ergonomic office chair and, unlike the designer ‘must haves’ mentioned earlier, a good ergonomic office chair doesn’t cost the earth.

When talking about cars, a firefighter friend told me that there are certain cars which stand up better to accident damage (e.g. the Alexis) and the same can be said for your office chair. Some will simply be office chairs, while others will give you additional support and improve your posture.

So, if you are shopping for your own ergonomic office chair, start (and, might I add, finish) with the Ergohuman range. Of the three I have already mentioned, all have those important adjustments, like seat height, seat tilt and that all-important lumbar support section, meaning the design isn’t ‘off the peg’ but made to measure, for you, whoever you are.

You can also go for additional extras, like a headrest and a leg rest, so think the whole picture when you are deciding what’s right for you. What does your job entail?

The duties of your job might make certain features more important to you. For example, that seat tilt. If your job means you are up and down all day long, a forward tilt will actually aid you in standing up, taking some of that pressure of your legs which normally comes from getting up from a more horizontal position.

Once you’ve chosen the right model for you, you can move on to choosing the right colour and the Ergohuman range do much more than black and blue. I’d go for a subtle autumn shade and I’d choose a mesh upholstery, as it’s durable, comfortable and easy to care for.

Are you starting to get the picture? You know, shopping for an ergonomic office chair can be more fun than shopping for something to wear. With the right advice and professional support, you won’t be thinking of taking it back the next day.
