Excellent if chosen wisely
We are ergonomic specialists and we LOVE kneeling chairs.
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.
This offers almost perfect design and function. The Variable's outstanding qualities are only exceeded by those of the Thatsit, but the Variable wins on price so it's our best-selling kneeling chair. It fits anyone from 7 years upwards. All chairs come with a 7-year warranty.
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.
Like the Posture Chair the Multi is suitable for occasional use. The knee pad pivots. Nevertheless we suggest one of the chairs below such as the Variable if you want an even better experience or to sit all day.
Multi is suitable for a variety of table heights and activities. Both height and seating angle can be adjusted simultaneously and the chair can be folded for storage or transport.
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 Wing also comes with either hard castors for soft floors or soft castors for hard floors.
