Variable Kneeling Chair
If you sit for short periods of time and suffer with back pain, a kneeling chair may be the answer.
The Variable Kneeling Chair both encourages your body to move and reacts to every one of its movements, and is the perfect instrument for supporting your posture without the need of a backrest. Suitable for children and adults. Runners and kneepads promote an open and dynamic sitting position that keeps your spine in its natural curvature and improves breathing.
The chair gives your body the freedom to find its own equilibrium which keeps your back and abdominal muscles working. While tension in back and shoulders is prevented, this ‘active sitting’ improves circulation and oxygen levels; thus concentration and creativity during your work.
Humans are designed to stand up.
Sitting down in the traditional way raises the knees and closes off the pelvic angle (between the spine and the thighs), causing the lower back (lumbar) to stretch and come out of its natural curve. This increases the strain on your spine and causes the muscles in the lower back to spasm as they try to get back into the neutral position.
The 'Balans' Concept
The concept of the kneeling chair is to open up the pelvic angle so that the spine is in its natural 'S' shaped curve, helping to reduce back pain. Our most popular kneeling stool is the Variable Balans and is the original design of Kneeling Chair created by Peter Opsvik in the 1970s. It remains highly popular with people who find conventional office chairs uncomfortable.
The chair works well for all types of sitting office working being the most popular, around the home it's great for providing a different way of sitting e.g. in the dining room, playing the piano, reading a book or watching TV. It encourages a healthy dynamic seating posture, allowing users to vary the way you are sitting quickly and easily.
