Billups Ergonomic Mesh Desk Chair

Billups Ergonomic Mesh Desk Chair

Zipcode Design™

Leather chairs are fine, but if you sit for hours on end, they can get a little sweaty. Mesh on the other hand is breathable and gives plenty of airflow to your back and rib area. You will have no sweaty stains and strange wrinkles on your shirt or suit jacket when you sit on one of these tasteful mesh backed chairs.

This model is adjustable three ways, and even allows you to raise the back two full inches. It comes in 10 colors, many of them vibrant, and offers lumbar support, which you will feel right away as your back strain melts away. And if that wasn’t enough, it features a tilt-lock mechanism so you don’t lean back too far.

What we like:

●  10 colors

●  Lumber support

●  Three adjustment modes

●  Full 360-degree swivel

What we don’t like:

●  Armrests cheaply made

Just because it is ergonomic, doesn’t mean it can’t be stylish. This leather option for your ergonomic office chair is all about style and class. It is the best of both worlds, carrying a vintage appearance with some very modern features. Two of those features being a very soft lumbar support and tilting back option.

The armrests are steel with padded top to match the leather of the chair body, it has a tilt lock to prevent accidents, and the seat is extra-padded. One of its most useful features if you are more than the average person is a weight capacity of 400 lbs. This is more than most other ergonomic options.

What we like:

●  Support 400 lbs.

●  Quality leather

●  Tilt lock

●  Back tilt

What we don’t like:

●  To narrow for larger users

●  Unstable when bending

And it is lighter than most steel models.

Ergonomic Office Chair

Ergonomic Office Chair

The first thing we all look for in an office chair is the adjustability and the back support. This chair features lumbar support that cradles your back perfectly, adhering to your natural curve. But the second thing people look for is neck support, and in that, this chair is amazing. It has a headrest that doubles as a supportive neck cradle.

The padded seat is thick and soft, filled with memory foam, and the armrests are made of hardened plastic and are completely adjustable. The back is mesh to keep you from sweating through your shirt, and it has the traditional 360 degree of swivel. All of this set on five large castors for ease of movement.

What we like:

●  Adjustable armrests

●  Headrest/neck support

●  Thick padded seat

What we don’t like:

●  Only in black

Orthopedic Chairs

Buying Guide

Orthopedic furniture is designed to help relieve stress on the skeletal structure, to encourage good posture, and even to encourage increased productivity. They range from cushions that can be added to a standard desk chair to automated reclining chairs that can include assistance with sitting and standing. There are even orthopedic dog couches for your canine best friend – yes, that really is a thing. Orthopedic dog couches or beds for the old dog that has been your faithful companion, but now is becoming afflicted with the aches and pains of age.

What are the different types of orthopedic chairs?

Kneeling Chairs

Kneeling chairs encourage putting more of one’s weight on shins and thighs, with less on buttocks. They also encourage correct posture. Reviewers say that these chairs take a little getting used to as you will be using more of your core muscles in this position, but that they are great for relieving stress and lower back pain. Because you will not have back support, they tend to help fend off the urge to become so relaxed that you are sleeping at your desk.


If you need to get the weight off your lower parts completely, a recliner can help you transfer it to your back. This is an especially good position for someone who needs to place feet at or above heart level for a good portion of the day. Some of the motorized orthopedic recliners are set up to assist the user with getting into and out of the chair, placing minimal strain on the lower back because the chair will gently sit down with your or stand you back up on your feet. Some of them come with a desk unit that has a handle that can act as a cane for stability.

Gravity chairs, or bungee chairs as they are sometimes called, are also a good choice for lower back pain relief. The chair design does most of the work of getting up or down, and – when reclined – they can boost heels above head.


If you simply need to get the weight off your coccyx, a cushion could be the answer. Sometimes referred to as a “donut” because the earliest models were a pillow with a hole in the middle, these cushions can be a relief for the pain caused by sitting for extended lengths of time. They support hips and thighs while allowing the central area to be free from pressure.

Orthopedic Chairs for Human’s Best Friend

While dogs do not have the burden of walking upright, they can become arthritic and some of the larger breeds are prone to hip dysplasia. Getting up off a surface – no matter how comfortable – can become a problem, as can finding a comfortable resting position. An orthopedic dog couch is high enough off the floor to keep it free from drafts and to allow your friend to get down, rather than up when he or she wants to move. A soft, rollback can give a place to rest a chin.

If you and your canine best friend are having trouble with seating, there are orthopedic choices available for you both.
