Since I’m not exactly a tall person (comfortably average, thank you), I haven’t thought too much about ergonomics for people who don’t fit into height range for “average”. After reading the blog of a 6’6″ fellow who was complaining that he couldn’t find chairs that fit, I decided to scrounge around and see if there were any manufacturers of ergonomic chairs addressing this issue. In short, yup.
ErgoGenesis, makers of the BodyBilt Ergonomic Chair, released a chair specifically for tall workers late last year. It’s called the BodyBilt Stretch Chair™ and has, “Optimal Ergonomic Fit for the Extra Tall Seated Worker.”
You can read more about the BodyBilt Stretch Chair™ on their New Products page.
I had a little trouble finding a price on the web (lots of BodyBilt Chairs, but adding Stretch to the search didn’t bring anything tangible in the first couple of pages), but if you fill out a request for information on the ErgoGenesis page, they say they can get you in contact with dealers in your area.
