BodyBilt Chairs are sophisticated pieces of equipment designed to complement your style of sitting. The first step toward building the BodyBilt chair of your dreams is choosing the right mechanism.

  • J: The J-mechanism pivots from near the center of the mechanism. Four adjustments are featured: seat angle, seat height, backrest angle and seat slider. The J-mechanism is the most popular and "traditional".
  • R: The R-mechanism is a synchro-tilt mechanism, meaning that the seat will tilt forward at a predetermined angle when you lean back. The R-mechanism is easy to use and features four primary adjustments: seat height, tilt tension, seat slider and tilt lockout.
  • E: The E-mechanism is a knee-tilt mechanism, meaning that it pivots from near the front of the seat, enabling greater forward tilt and greater recline. The E-mechanism also supports a gentle rocking motion and four adjustment features: seat angle, seat height, backrest angle and seat slider.
  • I: The I-mechanism is designed for heavy-duty, multi-shift, intensive use. Four adjustments are featured: seat angle, seat height, backrest angle and seat slider.
  • S: The S-mechanism is a heavy-duty mech found on Big and Tall chairs. Two adjustments are featured: seat angle and seat height.
  • B: The B-mechanism is used only on the BodyBilt Bariatric chair and is rated for users up to 600 lbs. Call us for special pricing on the BodyBilt Bariatric Chair.
  • C: The C-mechanism is designed for conference room seating. This scaled-down mechanism features two adjustments: seat angle and seat height. Contact us for pricing on conference room seating.
  • G: The G-mechanism refers to a fixed "sled" base for guest chairs.
