Ryan visited our office chair showroom in Johannesburg. This is what he had to say:



IT Specialist
This is Ryan's story. He is an IT Specialist who typically spends 9 hours a day at his workstation. Ryan experiences relentless back and neck pain while sitting at work, and is on a quest for the ultimate ergonomic office chair.

After struggling day in and out with back and neck pain, I decided it was time to invest in a new office chair. After a call to Karo, George convinced me to visit the showroom so that I could be properly assessed and have the opportunity to test-drive the office chairs. I was about to set out on a journey to find my perfect office chair. The promise of an immersive experience and expert guidance drew me in, and my visit turned out to be a treasure trove of insights into the world of office ergonomics.

Before heading off to the showroom, I made sure to gather crucial information to assist George to assess my needs. Armed with the height of my workstation, my laptop in tow, and wearing the shoes I normally wear to work, I felt well-prepared for the adventure that awaited.

Upon entering the showroom, I was faced with an expansive collection of office chairs. From sleek modern designs to ergonomic wonders, the showroom showcased an impressive array. The availability of numerous options heightened my excitement. This was it....I was about to find an office chair that would alleviate my back and neck pain! Ergonomic comfort was my priority; style was secondary. 

Through meticulous body measurements using Karo's anthropometric chair, George was able narrow down the selection of chairs to those that best suited my physical shape and size.

Using Karo's unique anthropometric chair, George measured my seat height, width and depth, as well as my armrest and shoulder height.

Then came the exciting part – testing various office chairs and accessories. Seeing, feeling, and touching the products in real-time provided a level of understanding that pictures or online browsing can never convey!

George was extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond, explaining the nuances of each office chair and highlighting features crucial to my comfort and wellbeing. He guided me through the differences, ensuring I understood what made one chair stand out from the next. As I explored the showroom, the opportunity to see so many options broadened my perspective. It was a journey of discovery, with each product adding new dimensions to my understanding of the perfect office setup.

My visit to Karo's Johannesburg showroom was more than just a transaction – it was an exploration of ergonomic excellence. The combination of expert advice, hands-on testing, and a vast array of products left me with a clearer understanding of what office chairs and accessories best suited my needs. If you're contemplating the perfect office setup, a visit to the Karo showroom is not just recommended; it's a journey worth taking. BTW: In case you are wondering, I ended up buying the Vera Ergonomic Chair.

1. What to bring when visiting our office chair showroom in Johannesburg

In our showroom located in Spartan near Johannesburg, we have many ergonomic office chairs, plus desks, monitors, keyboards, etc.. This allows our Ergonomics Risk Facilitators to make a thorough analysis of how you normally sit at your workstation. However, to assist us in this process and to make your visit to our showroom a real success, it is important that you have the following information available:

a) The height of your work surface at home or at the office

Measure the height of your desk, table, workbench, etc, from the floor to the top of the working surface. We will then set up one of our desks to match the height of your actual workstation.

b) Laptop or desktop computer

If you work on a laptop without a monitor, bring it with you. This will allow us to duplicate your current workstation setup and determine whether you need additional accessories like a wireless keyboard, monitor stand, etc.

c) What shoes do you normally wear?

Your footwear can influence the optimal setup of your workstation, so wear the shoes that you normally wear to work.

d) Do you wear glasses?

If so, bring them along so that we can ensure the monitor is placed at the correct distance for you.
