Product Description

Variable Plus Kneeling Chair by Varier is the latest advancement in the original kneeling chair, with an even more optimized, functional, and aesthetically pleasing design. The fixed backrest features an upholstered cushion, which provides the perfect level of support whether you are leaning back or shifting your weight forward. Additionally, the padded shin cushions offer added comfort to support a wider range of sitting positions. Finally, the curvature of the unique wooden pendulum/rocking runners is optimized to find and hold a balanced position that is both effortless and intuitive for every user.

Like the original, Variable Plus is suitable for use by any standard height table. The chair is available in a natural or black finish, and a wide range of upholstery fabrics and colors. The wooden parts are made from layers of beech and ash veneer.

The ergonomic seat pan is engineered to be forward tilting to rotate the hips forward, open the angle between upper and lower body and decrease damaging compressive loads on the lower back. Variable shin support/knee pads keeping the body from sliding forward, part of the load is transferred to the shins, and not knees. Keeping one leg extended helps control motion. Alternately extending each leg periodically allows for extended sitting. This sitting position, like walking upright, frees the lungs and upper organs and allows for deeper breathing.
