We’re all aware of the health implications of being seated for too long. Sitting places lots of stress on our bodies and spines. One way to avoid this is to use an office ergonomic chair. These chairs support our bodies, improve comfort, posture, and health. Of course, they only do half the job. You need to pick a high-back computer chair that fits you and then adjust it.
Unfortunately, taller and bigger people don’t find the ideal computer chair with a backrest easily. Even though these chairs offer you loads of control, customization settings – one high back ergonomic chair doesn’t fit all, especially not the bigger guys! If you are buying a computer chair for your workstation or yourself specifically, consider using your body dimensions for the right fit. Here are some suggestions for an office chair with high backrest.
1. Autonomous ErgoChair Pro
The ErgoChair Pro has a nice professional look that’s perfect for the office. The design is sturdy, with lots of customizations and covered in a light mesh fabric. It has a 7-way adjustable angle for better sitting posture and supports 330 lbs. The headrest can move up or down as you like.
2. Big Man's Chair from the OFM Avenger Series
This OFM chair has that nice classic look with double-stitched faux leather upholstery. This fabric is thicker, durable than normal leather but is softer and less grainy. Next, the size of the chair features a 23.75-inch-wide seat that is 5 inches thick. That is more than enough room that adds to the comfort factor.
This high back ergonomic chair is fitted with pneumatic gas lifts, a 360° swivel, tilt adjustment, and tilt tension. The whole chair sits on a 28-inch chrome base and has padded armrests that are about 1 inch thick.

For comfort, you can adjust the lumbar support and height using single-touch pneumatic controls.
Then there is the knee tilt, tilt lock, and tilt tension for easy reclining. You can even adjust the padded headrest, armrests, and the heavy-duty 360° swivel base. For extra durability, the chair has dual carpet-friendly caster wheels.
4. Harwick's Leather Big and Tall chair

5. Work Smart Eco Big & Tall Executive Chair
