President Obama's Ergonomic Chair

Even presidents need good ergonomics.
Behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, President Obama rests his backside on a Concorde Executive 24 Hour Chair. The Concorde distinguishes itself with arm-mounted push-button controls. Press once and the chair floats free. Press again, and the chair locks into place. No need to reach down and fumble with levers while trying to get the position just right. It also comes equipped with a high back and head support for reclining. Though we would prefer to see a less aggressive forward angle on the head support to allow for a more neutral head position. Kneeling chairs are an easy way to sit correctly and align your spine properly. More about what office chairs I recommend:
If you want to complete your own presidential setup, replicas of the Resolute Desk can even be had from The History Company of Ithaca, New York.
