Varier Variable Balans Kneeling Chair

item#: VAR952

The Varier Variable balans kneeling chair is the original chair designed with Varier's ergonomic balans concept to encourage active sitting. This ergonomic kneeling chair coaxes the body to move and reacts to its movements, creating a cycle of continuous motion. The Variable kneeling chair allows an open angle between the thighs and the upper body, making it easy to retain the natural curvature of the lumbar region. Maintaining this posture activates and strengthens muscles of the back and abdomen and stimulates alertness.

Originally designed in the 1970's, the Variable chair's simple design has endured with its dynamic ergonomic design. The kneeling chair's wooden runners distribute body weight evenly, causing the user to straighten up and balance the spine properly over the pelvis. This seating position strengthens the back by encouraging active seating. As the user's movement regulates the position of the chair, the knee pads prevent the user from sliding forward. The Varier Balans stool coaxes dynamic and active sitting by complimenting the contours of your body, providing maximum comfort and improving your health and well-being.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Should have gotten one years ago!
January 5, 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!

My new favorite office chair
May 14, 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.

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.
