run away with comfort

Run II has incredible value.  It is our lowest priced task and conference chair that doesn’t compromise on anything.  You still get our ergonomic proprietary foam that gives you support where you need it but softer at the edge to avoid restricting your circulation.  A full function side tension adjustment proper ergonomic 2 to 1 ratio synchro control.  Not just a rock & lock like our competitors.   Our 12 year warranty, including the foam, and labor.  4 way durable elastomeric mesh.  Multiple arm and cap options including width and height adjustment as well as our unique roll back arm option.  Optional adjustable lumbar is available, however, the back has a wonderful shape that intuitively supports your back without one.  Offering 7 designer mesh colors. Designed by our in-house design team, Studio V, Run II offers two back sizes, two seat sizes, comes in stool versions, great for task and conference applications, and we just launched an all magnet grey version with matching base, arms, arm cap and frame.

Seat Reference Point (SRP),
The ergonomic seat depth measurement.

 

Measurement G (and not measurement H) is the true seat reference point. SRP is an ergonomic term that defines where there is a slight indentation in the lumbar (i.e. where the sitter is benefiting from the lumbar support) to the front edge of the seat. It gives the true measurement of surface area in contact with the body. It is very useful for correctly matching up with hip to knee measurements for ergonomists taking into account the two – three finger gap between the back of the leg to the edge of the seat. It is very important to ensure no restriction in circulation to the lower extremities (lower legs and ankles).
