Although this question is 6 months old, I'd like to reply.
I found that a Flexchair really helps to keep the posture straight. It actually trains your backmuscles.
It looks a bit strange, compare to other chairs, since there is only a seat: no arm or back support.
The secret is that it makes you sit dynamicly; the seat can move: this 'forces' you to sit straight and keeps your back muscles active.
One benefit of sitting actively is that it is healthier than sitting still all day.

I combine sitting on a flexchair with a normal deskchair.
Especially in the beginning I could really get tired after an hour on a flexchair. Now I can sit on it for hours.
A nice side effect that my back doesn't get very tired anymore after a day on set with a camera.
Yoga also helps me with that, but after a longer period in post-production I used to be less fit. Sitting still for over 10 hours a day used to have a negative impact on my shape.

Sitting on a flexchair requires a slightly higher desk than a normal chair. So it is convenient to have a desk you can adjust the height off.
