I've never met a chair quite like this one. I had one of the shorter-framed Balans chairs in the 80's and absolutely loved it.
When I was back in the market for a new chair this spring, Justin in the Ergo Depot sales department convinced me that the That Sit was actually more appropriate for me since I am 6'2". And boy was he right! The longer frame and amplified distance between the knee and seat pads fit my body beautifully. The controls can even extend a little farther if you're taller, and of course they collapse quite a bit for shorter people.
Feels great, and I'm using this for my all day chair now since it keeps my back nice and limber.

Excellent chair: really good for my back
October 19, 2011
from Portland Oregon
I have had this chair for a month. I got it to replace a chair I have sat in for years. My work requires me to spend hours a day facing a client and attending carefully.
The change was immediate. I became aware of some ways that I was holding my neck and back that contributed to a chronic discomfort.
The idea that the human body is designed to move really makes a lot more sense to me now. Even though I still spend frequent periods of an hour being present with counseling clients, the chair allows and encourages me to move and shift position frequently.
Best thing I have done for my body in a long time.
