I never imagined it could actually be this difficult – well, I’ll re-put that – I knew this would involve a change but actually I think its dawning on me.
I have, for five years, been using a chair that has been fantastic – light for its time, supportive, quick, smooth, comfortable.
And now I am facing a change because I know that the chair is not as light as it was, nor am I as strong as I was. I think they say recognising something is half the battle? I don’t know if I’d agree.
I’ve written about how this will affect the way in which I will move, how I perceive myself to be – but I didn’t write about the psychological. The fact is that there are possibly two chairs to consider. I’ll write about those in a moment, but there is one thing bugging me: am I really ready to change the way I move?
I would like to think I am but at the same time I am worried I won’t adapt – what if I crash the chair within a week – what if I cannot get the same performance from it – a whole world of what-ifs. A chair, such as the type I am looking at, is very expensive. Would I feel right if I said yes to something, moved forward and then found it to be futile?
Its itching at my head.
Anyway – there are two chairs under consideration – the Küschall Champion and the Sunrise Quickie Xenon. I tried the Champion today. It was different – it was very smooth compared to my chair, very comfortable. It was incredibly light – the centre of gravity set up quite well. It moved smoothly and quickly. It was bucketed, cushioning me nicely and I actually felt comfortable in how I moved.
And (kick me here) it did look good.
But we’ve not said yes yet – the next bit is to try out the Xenon and Champion in my own life – to see how they would fit around my home.
Anyway – have a look at these links:
Tell me what you think.
