Carpet indentations from office chair

I've just kitted out my 'computer room' with new carpet and underlay... and it doesn't seem to like the chair I use. This is a standard office roller/swivel chair with five starfish points.

Can anyone suggest anything short of the weight-spreading mdf board which OH uses under his exercise bike in a different bedroom? I'm at a loss to see how anything will stop the progressive flattening.
