Broke after 12 months
Customer support regarding the delayed delivery of this chair was great. With that said, the back support on this chair broke just after 12 months and now cannot be adjusted. It is also way too tall on the legs when adjusted to its lowest setting, even as an above average height woman (just under 5ft 7”). I liked the idea of this chair but in reterospect I’m thinking it’s just an expensive gimmick. Regret the hundreds I blew on it. This is the first office chair I ever bought and it was a total waste of money.

Everyone needs one of these chairs!
I have finally found the perfect office chair! The flip seat is awesome and I’m loving the soft flexible cushion side which is great for posture and flexibility in my hips and lower back. I’ve used many office chairs over time and this one is by far the best. The customer service from the company is awesome too. Highly recommended all round.

Fantastic value for money, stylish quality with benefits.
I ordered two of these for my office. I thought that we could make do with cheaper chairs for everyone else. It wasn't long before I realised the pain relief benefits this chair provides if you suffer from back pain and sit a desk for hours during the day. Now I have four chairs in the office, so that everyone can also experience the same level of stress free, pain free days sitting at their desk as I do. We are planning to expand the team and you can be sure we will be purchasing more of these sometime in the near future. I can highly recommen...

Lumber support does not come high enough off the seat to be ergonomic.
I purchased the ErgoFlip Deluxe office chair for $599 with free postage. There are lots of positive reviews for this chair, but I see the ErgoFlip Deluxe as an unsuitable ergonomic option for most people because the mid-point of the lumber support only comes a maximum of 120mm off the compressed non-exercise ball seat (picture attached). Because of this, the lumber support digs uncomfortably into my pelvis instead of supporting the small of my back. I am 183cm tall and 78kg, and tried it for hours to see if it improved before realising the lumb... Read moreer support is not designed correctly. This small but soundly designed study - https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/9557584/ - demonstrates that the mean preferred height of a lumber support is 190mm off the compressed seat for men and women. The ErgoFlip's lumber support at its maxium height off the seat is therefore 70mm below the average required height for most people and will not support their spine correctly when using the backrest. The concept for the chair is very appealing - when desired, stay active whilst sitting down. The flip over seat design is clever and well executed - well made exercise ball on one side, sturdy well made cushion on the other side. The chair flipping action is easy to execute and works very well. Given the company's focus on ergonomics in its marketing, and for $600, I was almost certain they would have designed all parts of the chair with ergonomics in mind and so, sadly, did not request its component dimensions (i.e. the height of the lumber support, not published on their website) prior to purchasing. The chair was posted promptly, and the person responding to customer service enquiries is very helpful and is arranging the chair to be picked up and a refund to be issued in line with their satisfaction guarantee.

This chair remarkable, as is the company!
After two years of making do whilst 'temporarily' working from home, I decided to invest in a good chair. I did some research and the ergo flip kept showing up. reluctant to buy without testing I contacted the company. Annique and co were very honest and helpful in discussing the chair and facilitating a trial. My whole self is happy to report that the chair is well worth the investment. My one tip, if you are less than 160cm tall invest in a footrest. I've gone with pods to continue the active sitting. I can see why this chair rates!

Glad I didn't wait another minute. This chair has saved my back and increased my mobility.
I love my chair and what an excellent idea. I am in process of refurbishing my office so I was looking for a chair upgrade that was a quality Australian-made product with an ergonomic focus. I've had my chair for only a week and my lower back stiffness has pretty much gone. I only ever experience similar back release if I've done yoga the night before. I'm amazed at how quickly this has made a difference. I noticed this within days of using the chair. My overall mobility and balance have improved due to my lower back being released. So far I've not felt the need to flip from 'Fit ball' mode to regular seat cushion mode it's comfortable enough for me. Brilliant idea and product. I've been recommending this to people already!

Faultless - I love it
I have had my chair for a few weeks now - I am not one to spend big $$ on anything - but this was worth it. Made in Australia and very comfortable - like sitting on air. My lower back is feeling the difference after sitting like a prawn in a cheap chair the last 2 years.

A remarkable chair with unique health benefits
A number of Ergoflip chairs were purchased by our company BE Power. The team loves them, especially because they really are the only chair that allows you to exercise whilst sitting and working.

I finally found the perfect chair
I’m working from home and have had my chair for a week. For the first time, I have no lower back pain after sitting at my desk for hours. I highly recommend this great chair.

Excellent chair and great build quality
A great office chair that forces you to sit upright with the exercise ball-like seat - without having to deal with an exercise ball moving around your office. And the easy flip to make it a standard chair is fantastic.

Highly recommend to all my patients!
As a Physiotherapist working with patients that have chronic spinal pain, I am often trying to get patients to move more throughout the day to prevent pressure building in their spine. This tool allows my patient's to not only sit actively throughout their day but also keep their core muscles switched on all day. Best of all, I can prescribe exercises that can be done in the chair itself. For me this isn't just an ergonomic chair, it's a rehab tool!

A breath of fresh air for the spine
What a wonderful and innovative design, a chair that finally takes care of your back while using it. I would recommend that everyone that sits at a desk purchase one.

My lower back says "Thank you"
I can tell the difference in my lower back pain relief.
If I gave a piece of advice, it would be to use a different material on the soft seat, only because the accurate material doesn't let your skin breathe after sitting for long hours.

Best office chair
We ordered 2 for our office and the ability to swap between ergo ball and cushion seat is amazing. Looks after your body. The two managers and other staff who share the desks are super impressed!.
