We have supplied thousands of ergonomic kneeling chairs since 1987. The best are fantastic BUT it's important to choose one that matches the length of time you will be using it per day.
Our store staff are able to offer great advice on-line, by telephone and by message.
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?
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.
The Varier Variable Balans - The original, the most ergonomic and the best kneeling chair, without breaking the bank.
These kneeling chairs are unique in being perfectly angled to prevent knee pressure, with lots of movement built in to trigger your balance reflex and keep your core strong. They also use materials that are designed to last decades.
Varier Kneeling chairs (Variable, Variable Plus, Thatsit and Wing) are the only kneeling chairs that our team have approved as suitable for a full 8hr day - and we have tested thousands of kneeling chairs over the last 30 years.Varier Variable Balans
The Variable, now with integrated backrest! This is a progression of what is, without doubt, one of the greatest and most iconic chairs ever designed.
Why we think this chair is great?
Balance and movement can be transformative in everything from your spinal health to your energy levels. We believe the Variable Plus encompasses what is for us are the three core principles of healthy sitting: Movement, balance, and forward tilt.
From the proportions of the knee and seat pads, to the seat angle and the gentle rock from the shape of the frame; for the most amazing sitting experience. The combination of movement and position increases core fitness and doesn’t squash your knees. Nor does it rock you forward onto your shins like people think it will and you don’t slide down the seat. The new carefully positioned backrest doesn't restrict your movement, allowing you to enjoy your day comfortably for up to 10 hours of sitting.Varier Variable Plus
We believe the Thatsit is the ultimate ergonomic kneeling chair because it allows the most movement and offers the greatest support:
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.
This is the best chair we've ever sat in, and the one many Backinaction staff use around our tables and in front of our computers.

The Wing is an unconventional working chair that allows more flexibility in use than either the Variable or the Multi. with its height adjustment, swivel and tilt functions, and castors for hard or soft floors.
The height adjustability makes it ideal for use at unusual height tables.
The Varier Wing promotes active sitting and keeps you breathing deeply, giving your energy levels and concentration an invaluable boost.
This is the ultimate ergonomic relaxation chair. It is extremely comfortable and gives the best possible support when reclining. The Gravity recliner meets almost every seating requirement for exceptional ergonomics without strain.
Leaning forward, the Gravity Balans chair can be used as a kneeling chair. Shift your weight slightly backwards for an upright position, placing your feet on either the floor or shin cushions for variation. To assume a reclined position, gently push away from the ground.Varier Gravity
