I've pretty much worked in one office or another for the past 30 years, and that means a lot of different chairs. This is the best office chair I've ever sat in. Not that I think I ever really complained about any of my previous chairs - it's more that I didnt care then, but am pleased now.
The adjustment is crucial, for the first month I own it, I didn't feel any extraordinary about this, and become frustrated because of the money I paid, then I have a friend coming from HM to help me adjust it right. O man, it jumped from "normal" into "wonderful". The whole back curve is adjustable, and it fit my back perfectly. After I sit on my old dinning chair for like a whole afternoon I returned to my embody, I can feel the sore and stressed muscle on my back being hugged by the chair and it just feels everything return right.
I used to be a terrible forward-leaning working person, that's why my lumbar got some issue even before I reached my 30. That's why I am quite picky about my working chair. Aeron did a good job, but Embody is better. Embody helped me to recline much much more than I used to, just because my back feel great leaning on it. I turned to recline caz I love the feeling of my back being fully touched and fully hugged. It's not too stiff but not too soft (somewhat I don't like Aeron is its back is harder than embody, I don't like the feeling of "pushing" when I sit), just right at that point.
I didn't have back pain after whole day working on Embody, which is the best thing about it.
Absolutely a full score. Once you adjust it right, it is the best ever.
Each and every piece is movable to fit your body. So it's really easy to adjust it just how you like it. I also liked that I could pick the fabric color and the color of the "spine". If this is in your budget, you won't be disappointed. Now I just want one for my office at work.
That being said, everything is ruined by one major engineering flaw: the firmness of the lumbar support is not adjustable. Unlike other Herman Miller models (i.e Mirra chair), you cant adjust the lumbar support itself, you can only indirectly adjust it by adjusting the inclination of the whole back panel of the chair.
All in all, if the lumbar support is too firm for your back, this chair is gonna be hell; but if you are lucky and the lumbar support is a perfect fit for your lower back, this chair is gonna be heaven. Are you willing to take a gamble for the price of this chair ? Especially when other great chairs, like Herman Miller's Mirra Chair and Steelcase's Leap Chair, also uses great technology, have a lower price and have a truly adjustable lumbar support!
I returned the Embody Chair and bought the Mirra Chair. I really liked the Leap Chair too, but the local dealer couldn't let me try it at home before I bought it, so I went for the Mirra instead.
Also, if your lower back hurts because of the lumbar support when sitting, you may have back curvature problem, a posterior pelvic tilt, and might want to do exercises to fix your back curvature.
Secondly, though the adjustments seem infinitesimal, I personally cannot find one that works - my problem. However, the material used for the seat and back cover is minimal in thickness and transmits the articulated spine structure into my back and the seat support structure into my rear end - perhaps impacted by my 6'-2", 195 lb frame. The upper support of the seat back, even after many adjustments, still creates an irritating pressure on my shoulder blades. On the plus side, I do like the highly adjustable arms.
This chair may work with smaller people, but for the money spent and the associated marketing to promote this product, the Embody Chair by Herman Miller does not not meet my expectations. Please consider another product or really take some time sitting in one of these before making any seat purchase. Thanks.
