I have one of these computer chairs I got for 80 bucks or so at office max.

Well its fine and dandy if you sit perfectly straight up and shove yourself to the back or it and lean a bit.

All ours chairs not just the one I got seem to want to make you slump. The lower area of my back sometimes hurts because there is no support.

I just cant lean back straight enough and type.

Anyways I thought of making a chair that reclined all the time for full back support.

This guy did it. And what a surprise it was to see how and what he made it of!

It is a beauty isn't it CGM.

I scored a large old office swivel, recliner thing which with about a foot of padding, stops me being completely crippled each morning. But it is a major issue, isn't it?

About five months ago, I splurged out on a new chair also.I went to the local office furniture shop and bought a high back leather executive chair that does everything except make coffee.And you guessed it,
absolutely no lower back support whatsoever.Great,if you want to sit upright all the time. After time my back starts to ache. I don't think anybody has made a chair especially for PC Addicts. The company that designs a chair for PC users would make a motza in my opinion.All it has to be is like the BMW chair CGM showed us,high back,swivel and tilt, with arm rests, lower back support and padded as thick as the seat we saw.I don't think that is an impossible ask.IMHO.

I suspect so many of us have had the same sad experience as I too bought a brand new one and after about 45 minutes, my lower back starts to scream. Sigh.

Your are quite right, DSTM, it would seem at least one business is truly 'missing the boat' - if a furniture manufacturer took your advise and create a chair expressly for computer users, bet he or she would make a fortune! (Personally, I'd need one with all the comforts you described but much smaller than the one shown in photo).
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

There are a few gaming chairs out there I found out for like 100 bucks but they sit on the ground sorta like a rocking chair but low to the floor. They look comfy.

Agree MaraM, that it shouldn't be so bulky.
Before some wise furniture manufacturer starts designing a prototype,there are two more additions, I would like to have built in.The first is to have the chair electrically move forward at the touch of a switch to use keyboard to post,and move back to browse at the right distance from the monitor.Secondly,where your head rests on the high back, it shoud be curved to support your head and neck,in the event one wants to lean back,close your eyes and digest what you have read.
I call it "Dreaming"zzzzzzzzzzz.......... :thumbsup:
