    Default Dispatch Chair

    Need recommendations for a good comfortable chair which isn't going to **** me off after a 12 hour shift....

    Any suggestions?

    This is my take on dispatch chairs:

    24 hour chairs are like 18 hour bras, you want out after an 8 hour day.

    Nice to see you over on this board to Jim

    We bought high backed Recaro chairs about a year ago. They have held up very well for us. They are a little expensive though.

    We have Herman-Miller chairs. They are very expensive but seem to be worth it. They adjust up and doen, tilt back or forward, the arms are adjustable independently, and the back and seat are made of a elastic like fabric that is adjustable. They are the bst we have found, but no chair is good for 12 hrs.

    We use Kinnarps chairs over here. Best I have sat in for many years. Back does'nt ache or anything after a 12 hour day/night. I think the important thing is to kep moving about if you can. Stand up and stretch your legs occasionally keep the circulation going. Someone at my place was wondering the other day about DVT from sitting too long in one position?
