Conclusion
Full mesh, foam, or mesh + foam are the most commonly used materials for ergonomic chairs, which are applicable to various body shapes and heights.
If you are in large size and high weight, the foam ergonomic chair is more suitable for you, good load-bearing is not easy to appear a sense of pressure if you like the mesh, you should choose the material of high-elastic mesh;
If you are of small size and small weight, foam and mesh can be a good option. If the figure and weight are moderate, it depends on your personal preference. I personally recommend the combination of mesh and foam combination. If you like soft sitting feeling, use foam or high-elastic mesh, and choose low-elastic full-mesh if it is harder.
