Testurteil "sehr gut" FACTS (deutsches Test- und Wirtschaftsmagazin)

Back complaints are not only painful for employees, but also for their employers, as they cause cause lost working days that can represent a huge cost factor. The Klöber Mera office swivel chair can help to prevent this. In recognition of this fact, it received the test verdict "Very good" from the FACTS consumer and industry magazine in its October 2011 issue.

The overall result of this product test, in which the magazine took a close look not only at the adjustment options to support test consumers of varying height/weight, but also its ease of use, design, ergonomics and functionality, and last but not least its price/performance ratio, was an "excellent" rating for Mera.

Features that were particularly highlighted include the highly practical adjustment options offered by the patented Klöber quick-set mechanism to adapt the backrest counter-pressure to the individual's bodyweight, as well as the backrest - which even at entry-level is high and flexible with an integral lumbar support .

"Overall assessment: Mera is a sturdy task chair that unites all the functions and adjustment options that should define a good task chair. Both the quick-set adjustment option that adapts to different users and the ergonomic quality proved flawless. On top of this the design was sophisticated and the price represented good value at entry level."
