    1. Should have gotten one years ago! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Jan 5th 2015

      LOVE this chair! Easy assembly. Sleek modern design (I also got the back rest w/pad). Best of all - NO MORE neck and back pain. Highly recommend!

    2. My new favorite office chair 5 Star Review

      Posted by on May 14th 2012

      This chair is fantastic. I no longer have a pain from typing all day in the top of my shoulder. The fact that it has a 7 year warranty and is made in Norway made this an easy choice. The fact that it is the most comfortable office chair I have now makes this a great purchase! Much better than all the other "kneeling chairs" out there.

    3. As Advertised 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Oct 30th 2010

      Quality and design are excellent. Definitely provides the means to minimize back pain with variable posture choices. The optional back is a must and also useful for accessing and moving the chair. I miss having wheels when I pivot to file but can manage by tipping on one rocker. Changeover was easy, and I'm very happy with the purchase.
