Thread: Acta back vs adi carbon backrest

    Acta back vs adi carbon backrest

    So I'm getting a new chair and was wondering which back would be better for me. Right now I have a acta back with lumbar support, but it doesn't seem to work well for me. I am a c6-7 quad and it is extremely uncomfortable to sit upright. It's as if my body wants to make a "C" shape. My neck muscles are very weak and my head hangs down. I want to work on my posture by working out and getting the right backrest. Should I keep the acta back and increase the lumbar support or try out the ADI carbon fiber active contour or deep contour? What is the difference between active and deep. Thanks

    My Acta back sucked. I could never get any of the wedges I needed to stay put.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.
