We have supplied thousands of 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?
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.
The Varier Variable Balans - The original and the best, without breaking the bank.
Varier Kneelers (the Variable, Thatsit and Wing) are the only kneeling chairs that our team of product testers have ever approved as suitable for a full 8hr day - and we have tested thousands of chairs over the last 30 years.
They are unique in having perfectly balanced and angled with lots of movement built in to trigger your balance reflex without putting pressure on your knees or shins, while using materials that wont break or wear out in 6 months.
The movement is so important for healthy sitting and helps you naturally stack the spine over your hips which in turn improves neck carriage and reduces shoulder tension. 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
We believe the Thatsit is the ultimate 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 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.Varier Gravity
