The ergonomic kneeling chair with memory foam promotes an open posture of about 110 degrees whereas a traditional office chair encourages sitting at about 90 degrees or less. The forward-slanting seat and knee cushion in therapeutic memory foam redistributes body weight to align your spine and relieve pressure on the lumbar region. Originally conceived by Scandinavian medical professionals, this memory foam ergonomic kneeling chair is often called the computer.
The benefit of sitting in a more open posture is that it lets your back form its natural S-curve. This posture relieves tension while allowing your spinal discs to breathe. It also has a healthy effect on your lower extremities by relieving tension on your lower back and legs. In this position, breathing is easier and the upper body enjoys maximum flexibility.
