Sitting in a traditional chair is a compromise position. We don’t need a backrest when we are standing. When we sit, our pelvis reclines and our weight is now behind our pelvis, rather than neatly stacked on top of it. This causes stress in the lumbar region, and to cope with this, we need to lean into a back rest.
Kneeling chairs take chair design back to the start. Rather than using a backrest to support a compromised position, why not design a chair that supports the posture the spine was designed to be in?
By tilting the seat forward, the kneeling chair does just that. You can see that the neck, pelvis and feet are in alignment. The superior upright posture of the kneeling chair therefore does not require a backrest.
Our kneeling chairs are adjustable, so they will suit most people working at a standard height desk (approximately 72cm). They are lightweight and compact, making them particularly suitable for home use.
Because we are now using our core muscles, rather than a backrest to support the position, it will take most people a couple of weeks to adapt to a kneeling chair. Some people love them so much that they use them for the whole day. Others like to swap between a more traditional chair, or standing for part of the day.
