Herman Miller, the company that designed the iconic Aeron Chair, is back with a new ergonomic desk chair called Embody.

The chair is certified to be more comfortable than other office chairs. Dozens of plastic 'bones' zigzag on the back to cradle the user. These bones make the chair look like it has a spine.

Implications - Long hours at the office aren't unusual, and with it, comes strained backs. As people stay longer at work, it becomes apparent that ergonomic designs are much more necessary to alleviate high levels of physical stress. In a time when working 10 hours a day can be normal, consumers need products such as customized seats and ergonomic computer mice to reduce anxiety, tension and health risks.
