BodyBilt 2509/3509 Extra Tall ''Stretch'' Chair

item#: BBC505

The BodyBilt 2509 and 3509 "Stretch" Series Chairs are designed with a longer seat pan so your legs are fully supported. If you've never sat in a chair specifically designed for a taller person, you are in for a genuine treat! Most chairs designed to accommodate taller people are built for people that are both big and tall with a wide seat. This means arms that don't come close enough to your body tend to be uncomfortable. Why swim in a chair when you can have one that fits you perfectly? Configure your BodyBilt Extra Tall Stretch 2509 or 3509 Chair below, and don't hesitate to call, email or chat if you have any questions - we're happy to help!

While Bodybilt Chair options may be daunting at first glance, these ergonomic chairs are actually pretty simple to configure. We've broken out individual sections below detailing each option's features, specific uses and advantages. If you still need additional details or recommendations, don't hesitate to contact us - we have Bodybilt specialists on staff available to answer any and all chair configuration questions.


The mechanism determines how your chair adjusts and how it moves; Bodybilt offers three mechanisms to choose from.

J Mechanism

The J mechanism is the most popular as it maximizes the adjustability of the chair and pivots from the center of your seat. Both seat and back angles are infinitely adjustable throughout their range of motion. When tilt-lock is unlocked, this chair moves comfortably with your body. Additionally, the J mech can be used with a seat slider to allow for correct seat depth adjustment.

E Mechanism

The E mechanism is perfect for users who want the maximum recline and who enjoy rocking in their chair. The E mechanism offers seat depth adjustment (like the J mech) to accommodate users of different heights, and it pivots from below the knee, hence the greater rocking motion than other mechanisms. When tilt-lock is unlocked, this chair moves comfortably with your body.

R mechanism

The R mechanism is the synchro-tilt mechanism, which means that the chair and seat tilt in a pre-determined ratio - and it includes and "anti-kickback" lockout. It features 5 preset points of tilt for the back/seat ratio (2.3° back tilt to every 1'' of seat tilt). The back angle can also be adjusted separately from the seat angle. When tilt-lock is unlocked, this chair moves comfortably with your body. The R mechanism comes standard with a seat slider.

Lumbar Support

Proper lower back support is crucial to a healthy seated posture. Bodybilt chairs are available with standard lumbar support, air lumbar support or S'port foam lumbar support.

Air Lumbar

air lumbar

Proper lower back support is crucial to a healthy seated posture. With the backrest height set to fit the curvature of your lower back (lumbar region) the Air Lumbar can be inflated to adjust the firmness of the backrest by pumping air into the lumbar area. The air lumbar is a popular feature since users can adjust the amount of lumbar support they prefer quickly and easily. To inflate the backrest, simply press the black rubber bulb with your thumb or fingers until the lumbar area is noticeably firmer. To let the air out, press the black button until deflates to the proper size.

S'port Foam Lumbar

Crafted of comfortable s'port memory foam, the s'port lumbar is non-adjustable but perfect for those that prefer that softer, contoured feel. Adjust your seat back height for proper placement.

Back Cushion

Standard back cushion padding on all BodyBilt chairs consists of durable and comfortable, multi-density foam, unlike less expensive chairs that use single-density foam cushions.

S'port Foam Back

Users who prefer extra softness or who need added reduction of pressure on their back will prefer S'port foam on their chair back. S'port Foam is BodyBilt's added layer of memory foam in the backrest. As with all foam layers in BodyBilt seats and back, the added S'port foam is strategically positioned for maximum effect in softness, pressure reduction and anatomical fit.

S'port Ridge

sport ridge

The S'port Ridge is a vertical foam ridge that offers amazing added support to the middle (thoracic region) and upper back. Your eyes may not see it, but your body will definitely feel it!

The S'port Ridge was conceived and developed by BodyBilt in conjunction with Occupational Therapists in an effort to address this vital area for seated users. The S'port Ridge is a raised, vertical, foam cushion placed along the thoracic ridge and lumbar support areas of the back (essentially a raised ridge that runs down the center of the back behind the spine).

This thoracic support encourages a person to sit with their shoulders rolled back while seated, as this is the way the body was designed. This healthy posture enables the scalene muscles to relax, which relieves the pressure on the brachial plexus nerves. It also alleviates the increased tension in the muscles of the upper back, and improves breathing by raising the chest cavity.

The S'port Ridge delineates the proper curvature of our spinal cord, therefore supporting it in a natural, healthy posture during the seated portion of a workday. This relaxed posture alleviates back aches, neck aches, tiredness and fatigue, and improves circulation and digestion.

Note: The back cushion comes with the sport foam upgrade when you pick this option.

BodyBilt standard headrest

Contoured Neckroll with Straight Post

This height adjustable headrest is thickly padded and perfect for those that prefer a more pillowy feel.

Fore-Aft Neckroll

Bodybilt Fore Aft Head rest

The neckroll is contoured to fit the contours of your lower skull and features height adjustment, depth adjustment and angular adjustment so you can position it exactly where you like it. This is the most popular option as the neckroll is highly adjustable - it can even be pushed out of the way when not in use.

Back to options

Seat Cushion

Standard seat padding is constructed of multiple layers multi-density foam, which provides softness where you want it and firmness for superior support. Less expensive chairs use a single density foam.

S'port Foam Seat Option

sport foam

S'port Foam is BodyBilt's added layer of memory foam in the seat cushion. As with all foam layers in our seats and back, the added S'port foam is strategically positioned for maximum effect in softness, pressure reduction and anatomical fit.

Bodybilt Chairs feature a selection of adjustable arms to accommodate various postures and workstation needs.


bodybilt chair arm image

BodyBilt's 4-arms offer 4 independent adjustments: Height (4.5''), width (3”), angle (360° rotation) and articulation (7° fore and 7° aft). You also have the option to have your armrests upholstered to match your chair- we recommend this option for leather or Brisa upholstered chairs only as fabric tends to wear too quickly on office chairs.

4-Arms Pivot

standard pivot arms

The standard arm pad is also available with the Pivot mechanism. The Versitask pad adjusts 3-ways (width, height and angle) as the standard non-upholstered pad and adds a horizontal 2" of radial adjustment to bring pads closer to the torso. This arm is a great choice for someone bottom heavy that wants to be able to bring their arms inward, closer to the body or who wants forearm support while hands are closer to mid-body. You also have the option to have your armrests upholstered to match your chair- we recommend this option for leather or Brisa upholstered chairs only as fabric tends to wear too quickly on office chairs.

Long S'port Pivot Arms

sport pivot arms

The S'port arm pad is longer (12") and wider than the standard pad. It makes a great full-forearm support for keyboard tasks. The S'port pad adjusts 3-ways as the Versitask support provides, and adds a horizontal 2" radius axis of adjustment to bring pads closer to the torso. Upholstered in black, washable synthetic leather fabric.

Chair Height

The cylinder you select will determine the chair height: how high or low you can position yourself in front of your work area or desk. Most chairs come with a standard cylinder, and these work well for most people. When your chair is adjusted to a proper height, your feet should rest flat on the ground. However proximity to a work surface takes precedence over height from floor. If your work surface is higher, you may need a taller cylinder paired with a foot rest for proper positioning.

standard cylinder

Standard Cylinder

Standard on most models, measuring 5.5'', offering a seat height range of 16.5 - 22'' (range is half an inch lower on #7 seat).

short cylinder

Short Cylinder

The short cylinder is literally half the size of the standard - the seat height adjustment range is 14.25 - 17'' (range is half an inch lower on #7 seat). This is be a good option for petite users under 5'2'', or if you know that your work or typing surface is lower than normal. If your keyboard sits below 27'' from the floor, you may be better off with a short cylinder.

tall cylinder

Tall Cylinder:

This cylinder works well for those seeking a high chair for a higher work surface or a sit-stand workstation. Height adjustment range is 21.5 - 29''.

Comfortek - Grade 3

We highly recommend Comfortek as the most comfortable fabric Bodybilt offers because it is a knit with 3 way stretch, so your cushions are less restricted and feel softer than cushions upholstered in a woven fabric. The knit also allows for air flow, creating a cooler chair in hot weather. Comfortek is extremely durable with a rating to 295,000 rubs (scale for resistance to wear and tear), and it is 100% polyester. It also meets CA fire retardancy requirements.

Hue - Grade 1

Hue is a slightly knobby weave, constructed of 100% recycled polyester with a Teflon coating for stain resistance.

Colorfast to light, Finesse offers long-lasting durability and beauty.

Brisa - Grade 4

Brisa is very high quality synthetic leather; it is not vinyl. Brisa offers an excellent alternative for customers who want the look and feel of a leather chair at a fraction of the cost, plus it's easier to clean and longer lasting. This material is stain resistant and antimicrobial, wipes clean, has an extraordinarily soft hand, and will outlast leather. Brisa is also more breathable than leather, making it much cooler to sit on for long periods of time. Durability is rated at 200,000+ double rubs, and it meets CAL117 flame retardancy requirements.

Elmosoft Leather

BodyBilt's leather options feature genuine Scandinavian hides provided by Elmo Leather. Elmosoft leather is recyclable and biodegradable, chrome-free and environmentally green. This is a full grain, semi-aniline leather with a light protective finish to protect against spills. This leather has a very luxurious, soft feel, and it is never corrected, buffed or altered in any way.

Back to options


Standard Stitching

Fabric is stretched and secured to your cushions, providing a smooth and professional appearance and allowing for maximum softness of your cushions.

Loose Double Stitching

Loose stitching is a recommended option on chairs with leather or Brisa upholstery because of the added softness it provides. Since the fabric covering is loose rather than sewn on tightly, it doesn't restrict the foam cushions and provides a higher level of comfort .

Diamond Tufting

The diamond tufting gives your ergonomic chair that classic office chair look, and is available only on Bodybilt Management and Executive seating.

Note: Diamond tufting is not recommended on seats where extra softness like the s'port foam, as it will compromise the softness of your cushion.

For taller executives, Ergogenesis offers the BodyBilt Extra Tall Stretch 2509 or 3509 Chair for a perfect fit. Most chair manufacturers answer this market segment by offering different seat height ranges, but that's only part of the answer. To achieve a proper fit, a chair needs to be the correct width and your seat must adjust to the correct depth. A chair seat that is too deep creates pressure on the back of your legs, which can create circulatory problems such as varicose veins. A chair too shallow isn't going to support your long legs.

In addition to sizing these chairs correctly, BodyBilt also offers a menu of special features that allow you to tailor your chair to address pain issues, including back, neck, thoracic, shoulder, arm and hip pain.

Like all BodyBilt high-back chairs, the BodyBilt Chair Extra Tall Stretch Series provides exceptional comfort with upper and low back support. The 12-Point Posture Control adjustability allows your fingers to adjust the tools to address and alleviate stressful aches and pains; few chairs on the market offer this level of control.
