There are two basic designs, one that incorporates a back support and one that is designed to neatly fit under a desk. These chairs are great for those of us that spend long hours in front of a computer or work in a setting where you are going from room to room and need to take the pressure off your feet (like a doctors office). If you don't have one but are interested, we suggest that you find a retailer that sells them and try one out. When you decide that you'd like to purchase one, it is a good idea to check prices on-line as they are often 10% to 30% less expensive and often with free delivery
Folding chairs have been around for centuries and were most popular during the middle ages. Wood was the original material for these chairs which were used during the old days in various parts of the world such as ancient Egypt, Rome, Europe and Greece. During the 15th and 16th centuries, the folding chair grew even more popular and began to have arms and headrests in order to provide more comfort to its user. Since then, many variations of the chair have come up in the form of aluminum folding chairs, metal chairs and many more.
Office chairs look as if they'd be easy to buy and use. I guess I've shown that to not be the case. I have bought what I thought were executive chairs, reception chairs, fabric chairs, leatherette chairs, chairs with arms and chairs without, a sitting ball, and I've even bought ergonomic chairs.
My first ergonomic chair had an interesting and promising design. I had two problems with it, though. The small issue was that the chair tilted me forward and I had to fight to keep the seat level -- I guess the base was too tall for me. But, the biggest issue was the smell. For the first two weeks I couldn't be in my office for more than two hours at a time because the smell would bother my sinuses so much. It surprised me the smell lasted so long, especially given that my office was in the yurt at the time, and the yurt has a good ventilation system (lovely way of saying the air exchange through and around the walls was active). Even after a week-long trip the smell overpowered me. Fortunately it didn't bother My Bigger Half's assistant, so he bought it from me for her to use (she got to graduate from one of my office chair experiments). So much for that ergonomic desk chair.
A high chair usually consists of a frame of molded plastic or metal tubing and an attached seat with a safety belt and a footrest. There are still a few old-fashioned wooden high chairs out there with a removable tray or arms that lift the tray over a baby's head, although they aren't always as comfortable for babies as the modern, form-fitting models on the market now, and most of them aren't certified as meeting the latest safety standards. You'll also find a few hybrid units, which can double as a swing or convert into other types of gear, such as a chair for an older child or a play table.
