We all spend a lot of time sitting at a PC, perhaps far more than we should from a health standpoint.  The biggest casualty of our lifestyle is our spine and the backbone is connected to … all bones; either directly or through the nervous system.  Since we are unlikely to follow the health instructions on the bottom of our keyboard and not all of us are willing to sit on a yoga ball all day, regardless of its efficacy a new chair is often a life changer.  Herman Miller is a popular brand although as those chairs tend to be worth their weight in gold it is nice to know there are some alternatives out there.  The Tech Report has just put up an article covering the Steelcase Leap, a chair almost as expensive as a Herman Miller but perhaps even more effective at reducing back strain.  Even if you haven't yet felt the twinges of a developing back problem it might be worth checking this review and thinking about an upgrade for your back.

I personally have spondylolisthesis and would not wish it on my worst enemy.

"This week, TR's Cyril Kowaliski blogs about the Steelcase Leap, a fancy task chair he got to replace his Herman Miller Mirra after developing some upper-back problems."
