Would this chair work well for stretchsiting and stacksiting?

Hi, 

I would love to hear you thoughts about this chair:

NEC chair

1) is it good for stacksiting (seems like it can be tilted forward?

2) would it work for stretchsiting? I do have a stretchsit cushion, is it possible to attach it to this chair?

Sorry it took so long to reply!  I would say that this chair works fine for STACK sitting, but might not be so good for stretchsitting due to the concave shape of the back, the low height of the back, and the position of the arm rests.  I also can't tell if the back angle is just adjustable or if it's one of those chairs that will lean back if you just lean against it.  That would mke it decidely not good for stretchsitting.  You could add a stretchsit cushion and see how it works with it.  It does have nice room to get your behind behind you, which is nice.  So, basically, if you already have the chair, give it a try, but if you don't, it may not be the one to buy.
