They work immediately to improve posture, stimulate movement, and keep joints and muscles active while sitting. There are dozens of different makes and models of kneeling chair... so which one is right for you?
Read on for our handy guide:
Over the last 25 years we've tried a huge range of kneeling chairs, from the cheapest to the most expensive, from the sleek and beautiful to the frankly weird; and we have whittled them down to just a few of the very best and reviewed them all below
Kneeling chairs make sitting fun, but more importantly they increase health and productivity at the same time. The key to all good chairs is movement, forwards-and-backwards, side-to-side, up-and-down, the more movement the better. We call this active sitting. Once you achieve active sitting your core muscles will become stronger and you will find your posture will improve overnight, joints will be less stiff, and you will become more focused and have higher concentration levels.
When you sit on a kneeling chair you balance the spine properly over the pelvis – i.e. good posture! – On the best kneeling chairs, the rock of the chair is exceptionally good at helping you to keep good posture, even when you are tired.
Kneeling chairs with curved wooden runners trigger your balance reflex. This automatically straightens up and balances the spine over the pelvis - even neck carriage improves. The level of pulse and breathing is raised, driving greater circulation and extra oxygenation.
As the user gets more skilled (about a week or so) the body weight will regulate the position of the chair to exactly match the task ... writing reading thinking ... while the knee pads will prevent the body from sliding forwards. We have thousands of clients who use neeling chairs with lots of movement for all day office work. It can be used just about anywhere, as it's small, strong and very easy to handle.Varier Variable
The absolute best keeling chair we have ever found for full 7hr+ days of working.
We believe the Thatsit is the ultimate kneeling chair because it allows the most movement and offers the greatest support. This movement and support is combined with adjustable backrest depth, height and it also has adjustable leg supports to sit almost any height of person (5ft to 6ft6in)Varier Thatsit
The best kneeling chair we've found for compact living, occasional use and short periods of working (up to 2 hours). Beyond this length of time we would we recommend the Wing, Variable or Thatsit.
The Multi is made to an exceptionally high quality and has a 7 year warranty. It's a great chair if you need to sit for an hour or so and then fold it away.
Strongly made and good value for short term / occasional use, but doesn't have the variety we specify for long hours of sitting. Tip:- Note that Castors are tough on domestic carpets and floors so, for several reasons, we suggest another choice for sitting above an hour especially home workingPosture Chair
The Wing allows more movement than either the Variable or the Multi. Wing is an unconventional working chair with castors, height adjustement, swivel and tilt functions.
The Varier Wing promotes active sitting and keeps you breathing deeply, giving your energy levels and concentration an invaluable boost.
It swivels and is height adjustable making it ideal for use at unusual height tables. The Wing comes with soft castors for hard or soft floors.
