mirra 2

ok so I have a Herman Miller Aeron, and I just absolutely love it!...but, for no reason at all other than 'it looks cool,' I want the new Herman Miller Mirra 2 that should be available anytime now. Can anybody give me some feedback on what your experience is with the Mirra 1 compared to the Aeron?

thanks!

JD

I like it very much. There is only a single negative (not really) thing I can think of, and that is if you prefer to sit with your legs crossed, so that one foot is under your knee or thigh, that isn't going to work in this chair very well. Not surprising, because that would be very bad posture anyway

So this chair has broken me of that bad habit and is doing quite well otherwise.

I bought the chair at the same time I bought a new set of air mattresses (Comfort Aire, or Sleep Comfort). I cannot therefore say 100% which has helped more, but I am 90% sure the new mattresses have helped my back more than the chair has. I previously owned a good high quality traditional spring mattress, but the air has made all the difference. Not to stray too far off-topic in this thread, I will just say air mattresses do have some major drawbacks so do your homework. For me I was willing to accept the drawbacks in order to have my back feel better.

Don't get too comfortable

Couple of comments. I have a really uncomfortable chair. Which may be a good thing.

I hurt my back building the house. Herniated disk or something. Nearly incapacitated me with pain. I was told to walk it out. So over the next year I walked and walked and walked. I walked so much that I got to know every street (and people, too) within a five km radius. Gradually the back pain eased, and now, years later, it's pretty much gone.

Put some good podcasts in the player and some good shoes.

Another thing. Sitting around all day is the worst possible thing for bone density. Well, maybe lying around is worse. This is the one of the primary benefits of a standing desk -- improve bone density. Bone density becomes a critical health indicator the once you get over 40, and especially over 50, as bone loss accelerates.

Why care about bone density? Other than the fact that it is a prime factor in mortality for those over 50? Well, another thing is that there is a connection between bone density and brain health. Brain function and bone density are directly linked.

So, you can actually help improve cognitive impairment with aging by working on bone density -- standing, walking and, especially, weight lifting. Ergo weight lifting may be have brain health effects than Lumosity.

@Big Mike, earlier you posted something about how the Embody may not work well for those who lean forward while working, would you say this is the case, and after long term use, would you still recommend it and say it's worth the investment?

I can't recommend the chair, I end up leaning forward still and it is not comfortable in that position.

Thanks for sharing, but that's unfortunate to hear, because I do the same often to read small text on the screens. I went to a design store and sat in all the Herman Miller and other comparable task chairs and the Embody fit me best by far. I'm thinking I will still go with it.

I have always walked the dog, but that year I really doubled up on the walking, I would say that I averaged 10,000 steps a day for the whole winter and into the spring. It took quite a while to move the needle on the pain, but at some point it just disappeared. Maybe nine months.

And I am still walking at that pace. Walking is its own reward.

Thinking about it more, I don't think any chair could provide any useable support while leaning forward, as your weight is off of it. This Ergonomics guide also suggests reclining some as the best posture:
CUergo: Computer Workstation Ergonomics Guidelines

I wonder if the Embody is designed to force reclining in the seat some, as that would be the correct better posture for the body and allow the chair to correctly support you.
