Alternative Chairs for Healthier Backs

Today we received an email regarding a Kickstarter project for a chair that you can use whilst standing up and it reduces the weight on your feet by 25%. That got me to thinking about the other chairs that we have that also offer ergonomic improvements and the sit-stand stool also fits in nicely with our last post on the sit stand desking.

We have been selling the Kneeling chairs for many years and mostly to health workers who I suppose realise the risk of sitting for long periods of the time much better than the average person.

The Steel Kneeling chair is less than £60 including VAT

As well as these we have Saddle chairs which look just like there description.

And with further development you get the saddle seat with back.


A fully upholstered saddle seat, available in a range of colours and materials.

  • The Saddle stool was designed to help people with back problems.
  • The seating position both straightens and strengthens the spine. This relieves pressure on the discs and eases back pain.
  • Height Adjustment
  • 550-740 or 610-860mm


Adjustable Seat Angle Mechanism, Brake Loaded Castors, Height Adjustable by Foot, Arms.

Which brings us to the sit stand chair which offers further advantages over standing or sitting.

These sit stand stools are designed mainly for operators performing standing tasks e.g. Checkouts, machine operators, cell sewing machine operators etc. Ergonomically designed to take the weight of an operator whilst still allowing them to work at the same height as if stood.

Height adjustable with a non-swivel gas lift and constructed with a polyurethane seat that can be washed clean.
