The RH Mereo 220 Ergonomic Office Chair
The success of the RH Mereo is bringing ergonomics back into the office, founded on the two principles of upright posture and active sitting. Designed to place the user into a correct sitting position, the chair will maintain this posture and back support, whilst allowing the user freedom of movement.
This 'Two-Point Principle' or 2PP encourages deeper breathing and circulation, stimulating muscles to keep active without undue strain.
If you would like to see this chair in operation, and try it for yourself, then please feel free to visit the FineBack Furniture showroom at 7 - 9 Haseldine Road, London Colney, St Albans, Hertfordshire, AL2 1RR
Sculptured Seat – the seat of the RH Mereo 220 is designed to merge with you giving excellent support, especially for the pelvis. With this innovative office chair you sit in the chair, not on it.
Seat Controls and Adjustments – Seven turns is all it takes to change the chair from being suitable for a 40 KG person to a 150 KG person. Intuitive and logically designed controls, looking at them you see what they do, sitting in the chair you feel what they do.
Contoured Backrest – the RH Mereo 220 has a high backrest to give support for the upper back and shoulders. The backrest narrows towards the top and has little inward curvature which encourages the user to keep the shoulders ‘open’ and in contact with the back. Arm and shoulder movement is therefore less restricted.
Chair Back Height & Lumbar Support - Excellent support for the entire back in an upright sitting position.
Tilt Mechanism - RH is advanced ergonomics made easy. Intuitive adjustments fused with 2PP dynamics to respond to your slightest movement.
Neck Rest - The RH Mereo 220 has an easily adjustable, slim and functional neck rest.
This office chair looks superb in comfort faux suede or leather. If you require the same functionalty of this chair with a lower height backrest, then you should also consider the RH Mereo 200 office chair.
Back Height Adjustment - the backrest height can be adjusted from the seated position, by releasing the locking lever and sliding the back up and down until the curve of the backrest engages with the lumbar area. This can be set precisely for the individual and its position will not change even when reclined.
Back Angle Adjustment - the backrake angle can be altered for individual preference and will allow for an upright or more relaxed working posture.
Back Tilt Tension - the tilt mechanism is infinitely adjustable and should be set precisely for user weight and size. It will allow movement or dynamic seating as the chair follows your every movement, regardless of your working posture. This promotes an active work environment but ensures that the back support is always maintained through a range of activity. With correct settings, the user can recline backwards and the knee tilt mechanism will allow the feet to remain firmly on the floor.
Adjustable Armrests - height and swivel adjustable armrests are optional for the RH Mereo 220 but in our opinion are essential. Up to 10% of your bodyweight can be transmitted through the armrests and without that support, the shoulders can drop when tired and then roll forward. Adjustable armrests maintain the upper body geometry, particularly necessary for users with neck pain and shoulder issues.
Adjustable Neckrest - the neckrest is height adjustable and can pivot forward to meet and support the upper neck. When reclining back in the RH Mereo 220 the neckrest will support the weight of the head and allow the neck muscles to relax and relieve neck tension.
Footbase Options - the standard footbase for the RH Mereo 220 ergonomic office chair is silver/grey aluminium, an extremely robust platform. There is also the option for choosing a polished aluminium footbase.
Castor Selection - the standard castor is supplied for use with soft or carpeted flooring. If you require a soft castor for hard or laminate flooring, then choose this option.
If you are searching for a durable, high quality office chair with a lower budget, then the RH Mereo 200 is a sound alternative for a medium height backrest. For taller users, we would suggest that the RH Mereo 220 is a wiser choice.
