An alternative approach to seating
The 'kneeling' position of a kneeling chair encourages a posture to better align your back, shoulders and neck. Kneeling chairs that have a rocking seat also stimulate variety in your position and movement when sitting.
The idea behind the kneeling chair design is that when the seat is angled forwards the pelvis is in a more neutral position and thus the spine, in a poised natural position with an open hip angle. Moving regularly is good for you, so a rocking, kneeling chair is a fantastic way to encourage more movement.

What is the proper way to use a kneeling chair?
When using a kneeling chair, your bottom should be carrying the bulk of your weight. The lower pad is there to act as a support for your shins to stop you feeling as if you are sliding forwards. Begin by sitting on the seat, before resting your knees gently (or slightly above) the pads, in the kneeling position.
