Mods, If I have posted this in the wrong area, please excuse me. I just post here more than anywhere.

Since my surgery, I have realized that we really don't have any good ergonomic chairs in our family room that I can use. This is a room that we use a lot in our house, so I want to get something that will work well for me in the long term.

Does anyone have the Human Touch Zero Gravity relciner? http://www.relaxtheback.com/human-touch-power-perfect-chair--pc95-product-6390293-6389767
The chairs are expensive, but I am trying to think of it as a long term investment for my back. There is a store near us that has them in stock and could deliver it in a couple of days.

Or does anyone else have any suggestions for a good ergonomic chair?




  • I have that exact chair, and I LIVED in it after my fusion. It is definately worththe invstment!!
  • I have a zero-gravity recliner that I got at the "Relax the back" store. Very expensive, but it has the lift action and is quite comfortable, except it was a bit hard (although well padded) so I out a dawn throw over it. The one on the picture is more to my liking, except that I could only sit in absolutely straight-backed chairs after my fusion.

  • I may be going against the grain here, but I didn't find the Human Touch chair to be that comfortable. Maybe it was the lack of padding. I have heard great things about it, so I'm sure you won't go wrong with it if you do decide on it! I talked with my doctor and decided to get a basic Lazyboy recliner that has a little extra lumbar support - don't even need a pillow behind my back! It has been super comfortable and was half the price of the Zero Gravity....

    However, if you DO decide to go with the zero gravity chair I think you can get them from an online place called Vitality Web or something for less money than at a store, my husband did all the research for me though so I'm not sure if those are used or why exactly they're cheaper... if you want more info PM me and I can ask him!

    Good luck, just make sure whichever chair you get is comfortable and I'm sure whatever you choose will be the right choice!
