Sit Stand & Active Seating

Ergonomic Equipment & Supplies


Sit-stand chairs, also known as standing chairs, perching or sit-stand stools, are ergonomic seating solutions designed to give you the flexibility to alternate between sitting and standing positions while working at your desk or workstation. It’s important to rotate standing and sitting positions otherwise you get too tired, so these perching type stools are a great way to promote better posture, reduce sedentary behaviour, and help alleviate discomfort from prolonged sitting.

The phrase sit stand is actually quite confusing for most of us as it's not what a lot of people do. With a sit stand stool you don’t actually sit as you do on a normal chair, you actually perch which allows you to drop your knees way lower than your hips (infact it's the same basic concept as a saddle stool or even a kneeling chair...think knees lower than hips). For a lot of people with a bad back they don’t want to sit at right angles like a conventional chair, they actually want to stand or sit (and rest) in a perching type of position. This is exactly what we talk to customers about in store, good simple advice or call us if you need help. more

Active sitting chairs are another type of seating option designed to help promote movement and engage the your core muscles while sitting. These chairs provide a more dynamic and active sitting experience compared to traditional static chairs. The idea is to encourage subtle movements, changes in posture, and increased muscle engagement, which can contribute to improved comfort and potentially reduce the negative effects of prolonged sitting.

The most famous chair in this space is the Swopper from Aeris in Germany. Way ahead of its time it was invented back in 1998 and is still the market leader in truly active 360 degree sitting. Lots of other brands now use active sitting as a feature of their chairs, take market leaders like Humanscale or Willkahn. While the days of using an exercise ball at work have passed, you can still use things like wobble cushions placed on top of your office chair to create an unstable surface, prompting you to make constant micro-adjustments to stay balanced to get movement into your day.
