Ergonomic rocking stool / Stool

Ergonomic rocking stool

ERGONOMIC ROCKING STOOL reduces stress and fatigue on users’ back by allowing good blood circulation and guiding a more upright sitting posture. The stool was modeled on the dynamic posture of bike riders. Conventional stools often lead to ergonomically bad postures due to flat seat pan or lack of back rest. Users experience higher pressure on their low back compared to ordinary chairs. Triangle-shaped saddle allows users to lower the legs, and the forward tilting movement guides users to keep the neutral upright sitting posture. The stool guides a good posture and reduces low back pressure 30%.
