In this article, we are going to give a detailed review on the Autonomous Ergochair brought to you by Ergomax Office.
Chairs as we all know (or won’t) should always have features such as pneumatics adjustments, swiveling, armrests, high back and a comfy seat pan.
I skipped some of the factors while buying my last chair; but realized I never wanted something that rotates unevenly, adulterating all the wise thoughts in my head and makes me look stupid.
I am fascinated with the beautiful brand called Herman Miller especially the Aeron Chair.
The build quality is top notch:
The price it sits at is way more than the budget that you or I have.
The chair’s design, comfort quality, relief factor, working compatibility, balance and flawless motion brings it in contention with the Herman Miller Brand.
This is where I bring in the Autonomous Ergochair Review, a chair that offers similar comfort and features that you would find in higher priced models… though at a fraction of their price.

Autonomous Ergochair Review in 2020
Ergochair comprises of hard plastic and nylon keeping it lightweight and strong at the same time.
The back is made up of fabric mesh material that prevents sweat build-up while working.
It houses a spine support similar to Embody chair that runs along your back supporting the entire spine.
Looking at the butt support i.e. the seat; is made up of nice foam padding, not too soft and neither hard giving you a nice platform to set your booty.
The wide seat pan is made of polyester fabric mesh that gives you enough space to sit criss-cross as well.
If cleaning your chair makes you yawn; then beware of spilling anything on it as the seat soaks everything you throw at it.
Hence you wouldn’t want to keep your cup of coke accidentally too on the seat as you might have to later sit on it; if it falls.
Since my opinion is subjective; you may like extra dense support for the base opting for an extra cushion at the base.
But, No complaints as such!
The water falling edges (though nice to sit on) enables uniform blood circulation through your legs and saves them from becoming numb.
Your butt’s new best friend handles weight up to 250 lbs.
Let’s have a glance at its beauty, shall we?
It’s curvy design defines ergonomics.
You get plenty of adjustment options while sitting on this chair.
There are two levers on the left side.
Pulling the front one up, let’s your seat travel 2.5 inches in front bringing you closer to the desk.
Pulling the next lever down lets you achieve the lazy boy position of reclining down by around 30 to 40 degrees. For locking this position, pull the lever up.
You also get a handle at the spine of the chair that helps you lean forward by 20 degrees. It was very hard for me to find a position that was not comfortable, hence I’d also call it the most comfortable office chair as well.
The chair offers a lumbar cushion at the lower back of the chair made up of same foam as that of the seat which shaped my snaky spine.
The lumbar cushion can’t be adjusted horizontally, but the horizontal adjustment feature for seat pan fills that void for you.
Autonomous gives a new variety for the headrest as well.
You get a curvy head rest that offers vertical adjustment up to 2.76 inches along with a back tilting angle of 45 degrees.
Moving on, we have the mandatory feature: the height adjustment lever that raises you from 18 inches to 21 inches from the ground.
This features makes sure that you can easily comfort yourself as low or as high as possible.
Note: I do personally recommend you to keep the chair height at a position where your feet entirely touches the ground, from the front to the heel. This makes sure you have uniform weight distribution of the body across both feet and reduces pressure on your tail bone and hip.
The height increasing process remains the same, where you need to remove your weight to rise.
Height can be decreased while sitting where you have to pull the lever. 21 inches is a gratifying position for a guy taller than 5.9 inches.
And we have the flat and hard armrests which I found very comfortable since the softer ones don’t impress me much. But, the gamers will find it hard as your elbows might get hurt by continuous placement.
Hence if you are going to buy a chair for the comfortable armrest, then I won’t recommend this to you. But, the highlight is that the armrests are awesome in terms of its movement.
They are called 3D because they can be adjusted side-to-side, forward and back by over an inch and can rise to 3 inches in height. They provide an outward rotation of 10 to 15 degrees.
Under the seat, you get a tilt tension knob that turns to give you smooth swiveling motion.
Honestly speaking, you don’t need to adjust the tension as the pre-customized settings offer a perfect swiveling motion.
It takes a bit of time to play with the adjustments and achieve the required comfort but, once you master it, you will get an overwhelming amount of comfort from this chair.
The seat pan bears the two armrests, which are optional and a headrest for the power nap option to the user. Add to that; the chair weighs 36 pounds performing motions with ease.
Thanks to the dual caster wheels at the base compatible with both carpet and wooden surfaces. But, after a close look, I found the quality of wheels very nominal, and might need to be changed after few months of service.
Hence that doesn’t put the chair on my reject list, and I am highly optimistic to own it. Colors do fascinate me as the chair is available in four different colors namely Black, Blue, Brown and Red suiting every office set up.
The chair arrives in a big cardboard box promising enormous safety for the inside parts. Every part is wrapped neatly in plastic with some necessary hardware that you will require.
You get an instruction manual to make your construction process time-saving. You have to use one hand for support and the other for screwing. You have to start with the 5 hooded base followed by the adjustable telescoping rod which holds the seat pan.
Few screws are attaching armrest with the seat while the back holds the headrest and there you go!

Conclusion for Autonomous Ergo Chair
Summing up the whole story, the seat cushion is great for my base, the bouncy mesh back gives me a dry shirt, and the curvy back gives a long day spinal relief.
The lumbar cushion fills the void and reshapes your back and all the lever team up to give you one of the best modifiable workforces bringing out maximum efficiency from the user.
So, a light duty chair with some appealing color options weighing 36 pounds should rightly be called as a budget chair outmatching the price tag and becoming a professional addition to the office.
Hence I recommend it to every office user, craving for comfort to spend few extra dollars and make that transaction from your hard-earned money account worthy.
