Kneeling ergonomic chairs are among the many choices of ergonomic office chairs. A kneeling chair places you in a modified kneeling position, and your body is supported by the seat of the chair and by your shins, which are bend under you and rest on a pad with your feet pointing backward as you lean forward.
The distribution of the body's weight between the knees and the pelvis reduces the compression on the spine that occurs after extended periods of sitting in a standard chair. A kneeling chair also reduces tension in the lower back and legs for better workplace ergonomics.
