  • Lumbar feature provides lower back support for all-day comfort
  • Pneumatic seat-height adjustment enables customization
  • Mesh material improves breathability to keep you cool
  • Multifunction design and gel-padded armrests let you work in comfort

The chair is a sturdy built ergonomic mid-back office chair available at a very affordable price.

It is designed to comfortably seat a person of up to 250 pounds.  In itself, it weighs in at an astounding 60 pounds. 

Amazingly, this chair does not develop a lot of squeaks, even after years of utilisation, which is a pretty cool feature.

It is made with a nylon frame, mesh and a steel under-core frame for lasting strength and durability.

Built-in castors are a standard feature on the chair.

When you use the chair on a surface that can easily scratch, some users recommend the fitting of  -type of wheels to protect the floor surface.

The height adjustment of the chair ranges from 18 inches to 21,5 inches, which is pretty standard.

Previous models of the chair were completely made of a firm mesh material that was still very comfortable.

Nowadays, there is the option of a fabric-covered seat.

The advantage of the breathable mesh is that the design allows for passive airflow and improves ventilation for a cooling feel.

The waterfall seat cushion is well padded, especially in the front. 

This minimises leg strain as it does not press up against the thighs.  It is extremely comfortable for long hours of sitting.

The padding and cushioning on the armrests are very comfortable.  Some users, though, complain that the armrests pivot too easily.

The space between the armrests is 16 inches apart with the ability to increase it by 7 inches. This creates extra space for a larger person.

It allows for a 30 degrees tilting mechanism, 3 tilting positions and is great for relaxing the back muscles during breaks. 

When returning to the upright position, you can easily engage the locking mechanism again.

It should be noted that after engaging the lock, there is very little tilting possible, which may be a negative feature for some users.

The chair is backed by the manufacturer’s 10-year limited warranty, which is an excellent deal when it comes to this quality of chair.

This chair comes fully assembled and if you study the structure and ergonomics, you will be glad that you do not have to figure out the assembly.

The features in the chair are highly adjustable. 

The arm adjustment, however, needs a lot of force to adjust and you may even struggle to figure out all the adjustment settings on the chair to justify the price difference. 

The ergonomics in Herman Miller Embody make it very supportive with both lower and upper back support and is very comfortable.

The price of the Herman Miller Embody is about $100 more expensive than the Workpro Quantum 9000 and you should make sure that spending this much more money is worth your while.
