Our Verdict

The Flexispot BS9 office chair is well designed, made from quality materials, and offers good levels of comfort, softness and support. It's not the most adjustable chair around, but it does mould naturally to your shape in a way that we've found works well in practice. It's a good choice for home workers on a budget.

The Flexispot BS9 office chair might appeal to those who are working from home but still relying on a basic chair that doesn't provide proper support. In the long term, using an inadequate chair is a route to spinal alignment, pain and misery that you may never fully recover from. So investing in the best office chairs for back pain is a sensible move indeed. 

That said, not all of us have unlimited budgets. So while you may dream of buying a high-end, luxurious chair for a couple of grand, that may not be practical right now. In which case, there's the Flexispot BS9: a reasonably priced chair that still promises a good level of comfort and support. Does it deliver? We've spent the last three months trying one out so read on to discover what our experience has been like.
