Is there a "perfect" or "truly ergonomic" chair that works for everyone?

Ergonomics is about making the equipment and environments fit the needs and capabilities of the user. Therefore, what might work for one person might not be suitable for another due to differences in body size, shape, preferences, and any existing musculoskeletal issues. However, there are chairs designed with ergonomic principles in mind, aiming to provide better support and minimize the risk of developing discomfort or injuries from prolonged sitting.
