    Good office chair for disabled person?

    I was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations for an office chair for someone who has had some discs removed in their lower spine (L5-S1) and had complications during the surgery leaving them paralysed below the waist and with large amounts of back pain. They work from home 8+ hours a day and their current chair is a cheap swivel chair with no real support and it's uncomfortable and not really suitable, leaving them in a lot more pain every day they work in it. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Thanks for the link and the advice, we hadn't thought of the OT. I'll take a look.

    OT is a really good shout. Although working from home is your friend an employee. If so, then the employer has some obligations still.

    Self-Employed unfortunately so that's a no go.But still it means bringing in a wage without need for benefits so that's not too bad.
