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.
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 or back depth adjuster to allow for correct seat depth adjustment.
The S mechanism is found only on big and tall chairs and offers two levels of adjustment - seat angle and seat height.
Bodybilt chairs are available with two different types of depth adjustment - a seat slider or a back depth adjuster. Having the ability to adjust seat depth is important because users don't want the seat cushion pressing into the back of their legs, cutting off circulation while seated.
As mentioned above, only chairs with a J mechanism require the additional upgrade for depth adjustment.
A seat slider allows for the seat to slide forward or back, letting users adjust the depth of the seat to properly accommodate leg length. A seat slider comes standard on the E and the R mechanisms.
A back depth adjuster allows for the chair back to slide forward or backward, letting users adjust the back depth to properly accommodate their leg length. A back depth adjuster is not available with E mechanisms, which has a seat slider instead.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This height adjustable headrest is thickly padded and perfect for those that prefer a more pillowy feel.
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.
Bodybilt chairs are available with three different seat options, each offering different levels of contoured support.
#7 Seat - Moderately contoured - The #7 seat is the most popular of all the BodyBilt seat options. Moderate contouring helps minimize pressure points and better supports your body by spreading out your seated weight, reducing the possibility of back pain. Adding an optional back depth adjuster will allow the depth of this seat to fit most bodies.
#8 Petite Seat - Minimally contoured - This seat is for petite users that prefer less contouring to their seat. This seat does not contain a center rise, but the contours along the sides and bottom of the seat shell further prevent users from bottoming out.
Note: The addition of S'port foam is not available on this seat.
#2 Seat - Highly contoured - Bodybilt's original seat pan is designed to offer the highest level of support in a forward tilt position, and the pommel (bump in middle) reminds you to sit back in your chair. Contours reduce pressure points which can cause numbness and/or back pain. Most users avoid this type of tractor seat unless they need serious support that encourages a static posture; the pommel does not allow for users to move around in their chair, cross their legs, etc.
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 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.
The standard 360° armrests and height adjustable arms are included in base price on Bodybilt chairs. 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.
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.
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.
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 on most models, measuring 5.5'', offering a seat height range of 16.5 - 22'' (range is half an inch lower on #7 seat).
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.
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''.
The 26'' core-diameter, plastic base comes standard on Bodybilt chairs.
Opt for a chrome base to complement the styling of your Bodybilt chair.
Carpet casters come standard on Bodybilt chairs and also work on hard floors.
Soft casters for hard floors are optional at no added cost. They offer a tighter rolling tension to eliminate chairs rolling away on a hard surface.
These are a stationary alternative to rolling casters.
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.

Liberty fabric is a somewhat knobby weave with rich colors will look good in any office setting. Liberty is constructed of 100% nylon and is rated for 200,000+ double rubs. It also meets CA fire retardancy standards.
Hue is a slightly knobby weave, constructed of 100% recycled polyester with a Teflon coating for stain resistance. This fabric is exceptionally durable with a 1,000,000 double rub rating - making this another excellent choice for a 24/7 multi-shift office or heavy use environment. Hue also meets CA 117-E flammability standards.

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 CA 117 flame retardancy requirements.
Ergogenesis BodyBilt only uses genuine Scandinavian hides. 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.
Fabric is stretched and secured to your cushions, providing a smooth and professional appearance and allowing for maximum softness of your cushions.
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 .
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.
