There are many reason why you experience neck pain at work, one of them being your office chair.

A chair without a headrest or one that is poorly positioned can add tremendous stress to the cervical spine, leading to neck pain over time.

There are so many levels of adjustments that you’re guaranteed personalized comfort, especially in the lower back and neck regions.


What makes the Gesture stand out in terms of reducing neck pain is the chair’s ability to cradle your neck right where you need it.

You can adjust its height and angle or position it a little bit forward or backward.
