The Raynor Ergo Elite vs. The Original Ergohuman

The Raynor Ergo Elite vs. The Original Ergohuman

Posted by Human Solution on Nov 11th 2015

The Raynor Ergo Elite debuted in 2011, and ever since, our customers have been asking the same question: Is it any better than the original Raynor Ergohuman Chair?

The easy answer is … yes (for some people)! The Elite offers all of the same great ergonomic features of the original Ergohuman and more. It features a slimmer seat with a softer edge, more reclining options than the original chair, and arms that are more adjustable when compared to the original. However, The Elite is not recommended for larger users, since the seat is more narrow, and the plastic sides that support the seat could cause contact stress for larger users.

Change is good … for most people. OK, so maybe change is good for some people. Maybe you like it when things stay the same, and that’s OK! The Elites were crafted with our ever-changing workspace needs and roles in mind, but, sometimes it just feels right to stick with a proven winner; a classic. And that’s exactly what the original Ergohuman is—a solid, attractive, and comfortable ergonomic chair solution that will fit almost anyone’s needs.

So the real answer to the question of which model is better is, It all depends on you. With that in mind, we’ve compiled the following Ergo Elite feature list to help you decide which Ergohuman version is right for you. It features all of the updates to the new chair. Take a gander, and please feel free to call us or hit us up on chat with any questions about Ergohuman chairs or any of the other ergonomic products we offer.
