Best-Selling Kneeling Chair

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.

This offers almost perfect design and function. The Variable's outstanding qualities are only exceeded by those of the Actulum or 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.

Worried about sitting all day without a backrest?
Simply add one below or take a look at our all time favorite chair, the Actulum.

Parent Tip: it's a great homework chair for children ... amoung other things, it keeps energy and concentration levels high.

Have used one of these for 27 years and it is the very best piece of furniture for the office environment I have ever used. Particularly if you have any back issues. Was recommended initially by my physiotherapists after a spinal disk issue. Thoroughly recommend to anyone. This was a second chair after donating mine to my friend who is also now a fan.

The pendulum movement of the Actulum makes it an all-rounder chair for work, dining and leisure. Inspired by the comfort of recliners, the designer created a chair for any table or desk that provides optimal flow and relaxation. The wooden runners follow your body’s natural movements, while the flexible joint of the backrest lets you lean backwards effortlessly. This subtle activity strengthens core muscles and prevents tension in neck and shoulders.
