Refurbished Steelcase Gesture Chairs

Refurbished Steelcase Gesture Chair

Why buy a refurbished Steelcase Gesture Chair?

The Steelcase Gesture Chair is a quality product that has been designed and built from the ground up with your posture in mind and naturally support the way you sit and work with technology.

Steelcase achieved this posture support, whether you are typing, texting, or zooming, through its Global Posture Study. This study involved observing over 2,000 people in six countries, and identifying how they sit, move and work through their typical day.

Steelcase discovered that whilst technology boosts productivity, it can cause pain that disrupts our work, our ability to concentrate, and our creativity.

Features of the Steelcase Gesture

360 Arms – The Gesture 360 chair arm moves like the human arm, which allows users to be supported in any position. Arms and shoulders remain supported when texting on a smartphone, typing on a keyboard or swiping on a tablet, helping to prevent “Text Neck™“.

3D LiveBack – With 3D LiveBack, your Gesture mimics the natural motion of the spine contouring to the user, creating the deepest recline.

Integrated Headrest – Until now, headrests have largely been an afterthought, but the Gesture headrest is integrated into the design. The headrest takes head size, neck length and desired range of motion into consideration to support a greater range of sizes.

What to look for in an ergonomic office chair such as the Gesture

It works with you and not against you – As you recline, a chair’s seat and backrest should move as you do – opening up your hip angle and bringing you closer to a healthy standing posture.

It encourages movement – Your body was made to move. A good chair will flex with you – helping you change postures while you sit.

It reinforces your healthy posture – The backrest of the chair should fit the natural contour of your back and provide your spine the reinforcement it needs to maintain healthy alignment as you sit.

It provides comfort and support where you need it most – Contoured foam and a flexible edge provide pressure-free comfort for your sit bones, glutes and thighs.

It keeps you connected – The arms of your chair should stay parallel to the floor while you recline – keeping your arms straight on your desk and your eyes level with your screen.

It allows for unique adjustments just for you – Intuitive and easy-to-use back, seat and arm adjustments make a chair feel like it is made for you and your body.

All of these aspects of good ergonomic design can be found in your Gesture office chair.

The benefits and pitfalls of buying a second hand Steelcase Gesture chair

With a used Gesture chair, you have the potential to save hundreds of dollars but It is important you take some time to weigh a number of factors when deciding whether you want to purchase a used Gesture verses a new one. The biggest one being the chair’s age and as a result, how hard a life it has had.

There are also, plenty of Gesture chairs for sale on the second hand market, of variable quality and with various warranties and guarantees.

We like to buy second hand but also don’t like to be taken for fools, also, these days with Covid, a lot of furniture shops and showrooms are not open, so it is not always possible to check out a chair before you hand over a few hundred dollars. Yes, you want to save some money but you also want to make sure that you are getting the quality that you are paying for.

Renewed Steelcase Gesture Chair

How to choose the right Steelcase Gesture for you

Unlike the Herman Miller Aeron, the Steelcase Gesture comes in just one size. It comes in two form factors, chair or stool and can support a weight of up to 400lbs. It can be supplied with or without arms and wheels for carpeted or hard wood floors.
