Frequently asked questions
What is an ergonomic office stool?
An ergonomic office stool—also called an ergonomic office chair—is one that enables you to sit or perch in a healthy posture that supports the natural S-curve of your spine. They often don’t include arms or backs, instead helping you build core and leg muscles that allow you to support your own body as you sit.
Is a stool better for your back? Are stools better for posture?
Not all stools are created equal. Saddle stools and standing desk stools that allow you to drop your knees and open your hips are better for your back and encourage a natural, healthy posture.
How do you sit on an ergonomic stool?
How you sit on an ergonomic stool will vary based on the style of the stool. Saddle stools put your body into an ergonomic posture, while standing desk stools allow you to lean or perch on the edge of the stool to achieve that same healthy position. Regardless of style, you’ll want your feet flat on the floor or on a footring for the best support.
