As you already know, the Workpro Quantum 9000 is a very popular ergonomic mesh chair on the market.
So the question is, how does the Workpro Quantum stack up to the competition?
In this review, I’ll go through everything you need to know about the chair.
I will also mention a few other chairs which that are very similar to the Workpro, and should at least be considered.
WorkPro Quantum 9000
The Workpro Quantum 9000 is the ideal office chair for people who not only want to feel comfortable while they work but also want to improve their posture in the process.
This is a mid-range office chair that has drawn a lot of comparisons to the hugely popular Herman Miller Aeron chair, particularly in terms of its appearance and design.
Despite being considerably cheaper than the Herman Miller chair, the Quantum 9000 with it’s high-quality and incredible features proves right away that it is not a cheap knockoff.
Yes, it just so happens to be an affordable chair, but in all honesty, people who have reviewed this chair agree that it is under-priced if anything.
Upon receiving this chair, the first thing you’ll notice is how heavy and sturdy it feels.
Workpro utilizes metal parts for durability, so people who buy this chair will not only be supported when sitting on it, but they’ll also feel secure.
The chair is built to last and will easily last upwards of 5 years according to most expert estimations.
The weight of the chair is around 60 pounds, so again, that shows just how well made and durable it is, which is exactly what you need from a chair.
At first glance, the Quantum 9000 looks basic, but when it comes to adjustability, it’s anything but that.
What we liked most is the simplicity in adjusting it. Basically, there is just one small knob used to adjust this chair, along with 3 switches.
The seat depth is adjustable between 19 and 21 inches, making it ideal for everyone, regardless of whether they have short or long limbs.
Additionally, users can adjust the armrests and the backrest, plus make use of its robust tilt mechanism as well.
The idea behind an ergonomic chair is that it supports and protects the user, and the Workpro 9000 does not disappoint.
The 3D armrests are padded with protective cushioning which helps prevent soreness in the elbows and forearms.
Furthermore, to support the arms at different angles, the armrests will pivot between 5 degrees outwards and 25 degrees inwards.
Backrest, Seat Depth, and Tilt
The backrest is height adjustable and as it is a mid-back chair, it can cater to short, average, and tall people with ease.
As mentioned before, the seat depth is also adjustable and the tilt mechanism can tilt the chair by up to 30 degrees from an upright position.
Users can also lock the chair into position once they find an angle that works for them.
Everything is adjustable, from the seat height to the position of the armrests, making it incredibly comfortable.
The cushioned padding is also very supportive and enables you to feel comfortable and supported throughout your workday.
The mesh material may not look very comfortable, but looks can be deceiving.
The chair is extremely comfortable and it’s breathable, which makes it not only hygienic but particularly comfortable during summer or in places with warmer climates.
