Product Description

BodyBilt Big and Tall Chairs are designed with the same ergonomic adjustability found in other BodyBilt models, but its seat is 22% larger than their average seat.  This makes the BodyBilt Big and Tall chair ideal for larger persons.

BodyBilt Big and Tall Chairs - Options


When ordering your new BodyBilt Big & Tall Series Ergonomic Chair, you'll find it is available in three mechanism options: J Mech, E Mech, and R Mech:

  • The J Mechanism is by far, the most popular and represents 90% of our BodyBilt orders. When rocking or adjusting the seat tilt of the chair, the J Mech has a pivot point that is centered underneath the seat. With a centered pivot point, this means you can tilt backward by the same amount you can tilt forward, e.g., tilts back 7 degrees, tilts forward 7 degrees.
  • The J Mechanism w/ Seat Slider option allows you to "slide" the seat closer to or further away from the backrest.
  • The E Mechanism has a pivot point that is more forward in the chair, closer to behind your knees. Because of its forward pivot point, the chair tilts more backward than it tilts forward, e.g., tilts back 13 degrees, tilts forward 7 degrees. We recommend the E Mech for people who like more rocking action in their chair.
  • The R Mechanism works with a synchro-tilt mechanism. This means that the backrest and seat bottom tilt back together at a pre-determined 3 to 1 ratio – for every 3 degrees you lean back on the backrest, the seat bottom tilts up by 1 degree. If you tilted the backrest by 6 degrees, the seat bottom would come up by 2 degrees, and so on. In comparison, the backrest and seat bottom for the J Mech and E Mech tilt at 1 to 1 ratio. Simply put, the R Mech offers greater reclining action when you rock.

We note however that because of the synchro-tilt action on the R Mech, you cannot adjust seat tilt and backrest tilt independently like you could with the J Mech or E Mech. The R Mech's synchro-tilt joins seat and backrest tilt together so they cannot be de-coupled.

Seat Contour

  • 04 Seat Bottom for Big & Tall - This is a moderately contoured seat and ideal for 95% of the population. Moderate contours improve distribution of your weight over the surface area of the seat, while minimizing pressure points.
  • 03 Seat Bottom for Big & Tall - This is a flat contoured seat, which has less contour than the 07 Seat Bottom.

Seat Cushion

  • Standard Seat Cushion - Multi-layered, high density foam.
  • S’port Seat Cushion (+$27.00) - Added layer of memory foam on top of standard seat cushion foam.

Back Cushion

  • Standard Back Cushion - Multi-layered, high density foam.
  • S’port Back Cushion (+$27.00) - Added layer of memory foam on top of standard back cushion foam.
  • S’port Ridge Back Cushion (+$81.00) - S’port Back Cushion with added ridge in the center that follows your spine. If you run your hand across your back, you can feel how your spine is indented compared to the rest of your back. The S’port Ridge is designed to accommodate this natural indentation; encourages you to roll your shoulders back a little while you sit.

Lumbar Support

  • No Additonal Lumber Support - Chair without additional lumbar support.
  • S’port Foam Lumbar (+$39.00) - S’port Memory Foam inserted in the backrest at the lumbar region. Non-adjustable.
  • Air Lumbar (+$54.00) - Air bladder inserted in the backrest at the lumbar region. You can pump the air bladder to increase the amount of support and firmness. Quick release valve deflates air bladder at the touch of a button.


  • No Headrest (-$90.00) - Chair without the headrest; deducts $90.00 from price
  • Standard Headrest - Standard, height adjustable headrest
  • Fore-Aft Neckroll - In addition to height adjustment, you can also adjust the depth - bring this headrest closer to your head, or push it further away. More adjustability makes this option more popular with our customers.


  • Standard Armrests - Excellent adjustable armrests; so good we can't believe they come standard! Three-way adjustability includes: height adjustment, width adjustment, and rotational adjustment (example: rotate armrests inward for better forearm support while typing).
  • Pivot Armrests (+$139.00) - The standard armrests with an added pivot mechanism that allows for an extra 2" of adjustment. Great for people who like to have their arms more centered in front of their body instead of out in a wider resting position.
  • Pivot Armrests with S'ports Pads (+$199.00) - This offers the greater adjustability of the Pivot armrests with the addition of a 12" memory foam S'port pad across the length of each armrest for the ultimate arm comfort and support.

Seat Height

  • Standard Cylinder - Recommended for people 5'2"; to 6'2" with a seat height range of 16.5" to 22.0"
  • Short Cylinder - Recommended for people 5'1" or shorter with a seat height range of 14.3" to 17.0"
  • Tall Cylinder (+$99.00) - Recommended for people 6'3" or taller with a seat height range of 21.5" to 29.0"

Base Color

  • Standard Black Base - Standard 26” five-star base.
  • Polished Aluminum Base (+$44.00)– 26” five-star base in polished aluminum adds style to your new ergonomic chair.
  • Mahogany Base (+$97.00) - 26" five-star base in rich mahogany for a classic and stately look.


  • Carpet Casters - These casters (the wheels on the bottom of your chair) are ideal for carpet use, but can also be used on hard floors.
  • Hard Floor Casters - Ideal for hard floors, but can also be used on carpet. These hard floor casters are slightly softer and have tighter rolling tension (vs. Carpet Casters) to help keep the chair from rolling around too much on hard floors.
  • Stationary Glides - If you prefer not to have wheeled casters, the stationary glides provide a nice option for keeping the chair in a fixed position.
  • Chrome Casters (+$25.00) - A perfect match to go with the polished aluminum base option.

Fabric - Grade I: Standard

BodyBilt provides a great selection of standard fabrics to choose from. These durable fabrics come in a variety of colors. We can customize your chair in the standard fabric colors available below.


Fabric - Grade II: Comfortek Premium Fabrics (+$136.00)

These Comfortek fabrics are our most popular.  Comfortek fabrics have a little stretch in them and will feel softer than standard fabrics, especially when used in conjunction with memory foam.  Comfortek fabrics are more breathable as well, making your chair feel a bit cooler.

Fabric - Grade III: Leather (+$756.00)

BodyBilt uses 100% genuine leather which has a light protective finish to guard against spills.  This premium Scandanavian leather has a very soft, luxurious feel.

Product Sheet


The backrest on the BodyBilt Big and Tall chair is the same as other BodyBilt models, but it’s the larger seat that makes the difference.  To better understand this concept, it’s helpful to know that BodyBilt uses a four-digit numbering system to name their products.  The first two numbers represent the backrest, and the last two numbers represent the seat.

Seats for the BodyBilt Big and Tall Chairs come in two flavors – a moderately contoured ergonomic seat (the 04 seat bottom) and a flat contoured ergonomic seat (the 03 seat bottom).  Both of these seats are 22% larger than other BodyBilt seat types.  Backrests, however, are the same across all BodyBilt models.  So you can couple any backrest to the 04 or 03 seat bottoms to configure a Big and Tall Chair.
