The blue Ergonomic Kneeling Chair

Ergonomic Kneeling Chair

Enjoy lower back pain relief, improved circulation, and more energy with an active sitting solution that encourages proper posture and strengthens muscles. The Ergonomic Kneeling Chair properly aligns your back, shoulders, and neck, and engages your core so you stay healthy and comfortable.

The kneeling chair allows you to shift your weight between your bottom and your shins to vary your position. Sit on the top seat with your legs tucked back, or sit more traditionally with your feet on the floor and enjoy the rocking motion enabled by the curved bottom rockers.

Improve Posture and Relieve Back Pain

This unique ergonomic chair encourages an open hip angle and a more upright posture. Sitting upright in this manner decreases pressure on your spinal discs and aligns your back, shoulders, and neck, reducing discomfort and pain that can result from slouching for long periods in traditional office chairs. Relax your back and shoulders, burn calories, and engage your core muscles for improved circulation and whole-body comfort even after you get up!

The chair's kneeling posture distributes your weight evenly throughout your buttocks and legs, while keeping your spine aligned, for better spinal health. In fact, many users report a reduction in lower back and sciatic pain as a result. Try kneeling throughout the day and see firsthand what the Ergonomic Kneeling Chair has to offer!

Designed for Comfort

We designed this chair to not only promote good posture, but also to be the most comfortable kneeling chair for you. Our 2.25" thick knee padding and seat cushion are thicker than those of other kneeling chairs, and the rocker bottom allows more motion than alternative kneeling chairs with casters.

Varying your position throughout the day will also improve circulation, comfort, and alertness; rest your weight on the forward-sloping seat, and one or both of your shins on, in front of, between, or next to the knee pads. For even more possible positions, try sitting traditionally on the seat with your feet on the floor. From any seated position, shift your weight or push off with your foot to gently rock the seat.

Increased Productivity

Better circulation of oxygenated blood, and more activity in your day, is proven to improve concentration as well as health. Continuous motion, with the rocking and variable postures of this active seat, will invigorate your body and mind. You'll have more energy throughout your day, and the focus to get more done than you thought possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why should I get a rocker type chair instead of one with regular casters?

    The ability to rock and move helps you stay alert and comfortable throughout the day, improving circulation and channeling restless energy. While casters only allow you to move the chair from place to place, the rocker allows you to get more motion at your desk, so you engage your core, improve posture, and even burn calories!

  2. What if I don't have a height-adjustable desk? Will the kneeling chair work with my desk height?

    The kneeling chair will allow you to sit and rock comfortably at most standard height desks. If you'd like to get more active, and be able to switch to more positions throughout your day, we recommend a sit-stand desk, which will accommodate kneeling, standing, perching, and sitting, as well as motion boards, treadmills, and bikes.

  3. Will the kneeling chair work on carpet?

    We've used the Ergonomic Kneeling Chair on our carpeted office floors, along with hard surfaces like wood and concrete, and it works great!
