Quick links to our favourite chairs:

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

What are kneeling chairs all about?

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.

Perfect Poise and Balance

The original and the best without breaking the bank.

Beware of any kneeing chair that doesnt allow lots of movement - The Varier Variable Balans kneeling chair with it's perfectly balanced curved wooden runners triggers your balance reflex. This is SOOO important for healthy sitting and helps naturally stack the spine over the pelvis. This natural movement and stacking mean neck carriage improves and shoulder tension can be dramatically reduced. Plus pulse rate and breathing are elevated, driving greater circulation and extra oxygenation.

Over time you will learn to vary the position of the chair to exactly match the task... writing, reading, thinking, while the shin pads prevent the hips from sliding forwards. We have thousands of clients who use kneeling chairs for all day office work.

Varier Variable Balans

Kneeling Chair with Backrest

We believe the Thatsit is the ultimate kneeling chair because it allows the most movement and offers the greatest support:

  • Adjustable backrest depth / angle
  • Great lumbar support
  • Adjustable backrest height
  • Adjustable leg supports to adjust for leg length: (5ft to 6ft4in)
  • Sprung, flexible shin pads to prevent shin pressure and allow extra movement
  • Elbow rests - to support the weight of the arms when sitting against the backrest
  • Suitable for a standard height desk / dining table (71-76cm)
  • 8-10hrs sitting thanks to high quality injection-molded foam + lots of movement + back support for tired moments
Varier Thatsit

Portable Kneeling Chair

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.

Varier Multi

One of Our All Time Favourites

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 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.

Varier Actulum

Swivel Kneeling Chair

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.

Varier Wing

Zero Gravity

This is the ultimate relaxation chair. It is extremely comfortable and gives the best possible support when reclining. The Gravity recliner meets almost every seating requirement without strain.

Leaning forward, Gravity 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.
