What do you use for an ergonomic workstation?

story imageFirst it was ergonomic keyboards and mice, then ergonomic keyboard trays and lumbar-support chairs. Standing desks came next, and as XKCD points out, we're not done yet. No surprise then, that the SXSW event led to display of some new ideas, such as Martin Keen's new Leaning chair, basically a repurposed tractor seat posted at an angle.

How do you stay comfortable for the 23.5 hours that you are parked in front of a computer? And with all this ergonomic stuff, when will the madness end?

Hospital bed (Score: 2, Funny)

If you're really going to spend so many hours seated/reclined how about a decent hospital bed with a special air mattress to reduce bed sores? Otherwise you really should get up and walk about regularly ;).

By the way, I find it somewhat interesting how we have been building chairs for thousands of years and yet office chairs are mostly either super expensive or crap (or in some cases both). Many can barely last longer than 7200rpm HDDs which are cheaper, have far longer and better warranties. OK so HDDs don't contain as much metal but have you seen what some charge for a _good_ office chair?
