If you have never tried a kneeling chair before odds are you might be feeling a little hesitant about pulling the trigger and pressing “buy”. If you’ve never sat in one how do you know if you’ll like it? How will know if it’s right for you? Do you have the right body type? Who is the kneeling chair meant for?
We aren’t joking when we say “it’s for pretty much anyone who sits.”
We toss in that *pretty much* because although the kneeling chair has an endless amount of benefits for almost every single body type we want to be clear that it is not meant for anyone with a history of knee pain or leg injuries.
But as for the rest of you…Our adjustable models fit anyone from about 4’9” tall to 6’7” feet, so whether you're super petite or super not petite, young or old,at home or at work, there’s no end to who, where or how you use it. We also have a comparison chart if you really want to get into it, check that out here.
One of our favourite things to see is young people sitting in our chairs. It’s so important during those developmental years that we teach our children healthy habits. If we had it our way, every school in America would be using kneeling chairs as opposed to the hard plastic or wooden chairs that are used now. One of the main reasons we develop back pain as we age is not simply because we are “getting old” but because we become dependent on a chair back and therefore weaken our core muscles from the time we are Children spend a lot of the school day sitting and we should be taking into account their posture, especially when they are pre-teen/ teenagers and their bodies are evolving so rapidly.
If you’re past the point of being proactive about back pain and are trying to rid yourself of nagging tension and cure your ailments our chairs are an ideal solution if you do any sort of desk job or seated work.

These chairs are designed to help facilitate you doing your best work and efficiently and easily as possible.
Our kneeling chairs are often found in the home offices, rehearsal halls, dressing rooms or studios of creatives. If you practice the Alexander Technique you know the importance of a strong, upright posture and a forward tilted pelvis. If you’re writing a novel you understand the stress long hours of creative flow can have on the body. If you’re a musician then you appreciate a chair that helps you find that perfect posture.
Work can sometimes feel tedious and never-ending and a real pain (pun 100% intended). This is made even worse when you’re experiencing discomfort. These seemingly small aches and pains can quickly develop into bigger more chronic injuries that can force us to have to take time away from work, and no one wants that.
Putting work aside for a minute, there’s plenty of other ways for these kneeling chairs to be used. If you’re an avid crafter, knitter, rug hooker or quilter, if you spend a lot of time on the computer at home, or maybe you spend hours strategizing over a chess board, or perhaps you can often be found in a workshop building. Whatever it is you love to do, we encourage you to try doing it while kneeling. We bet you’ll find yourself enjoying yourself even more!
We believe in being proactive and taking care of our bodies before we find ourselves in a predicament. A kneeling chair could be the answer to solving a lot of workplace injuries caused by prolonged sitting. Pinched nerves, thatched vertebrates, carpal tunnel.
