I recently upgraded from the wooden kitchen chair I've used for years to a real swiveling office chair on wheels, so I'm a bit behind the curve on office chair innovations. When you spend the biggest part of your waking life sitting at a computer, what you sit on can make all the difference in your mood. Some of the gadgets developed to enhance your working comfort and health may be worth the added expense.
The Best Seat Cushion
This cushion has twelve air cells inside that inflate and deflate intermittently. The idea is that this will relieve pressure points and stimulate circulation in your butt and thighs. Yes, it's possible toÂ do the same thing by shifting your weight or changing position, but it sounds like it would give you a lovely massage. The Best Seat is powered by a rechargeable battery that will last 48 hours on a two-our charge. Get yours for $225 at Magellan (when they restock) or $299.99 at Hammacher-Schlemmer.

Embody Office Chair
I'm still giddy from just having a comfy office chair. Still, one of these days I'm going to splurge a bit to make myself feel really pampered while working. Meanwhile, I'll keep buying lottery tickets.
