A Serious Look at the Ergonomic Kneeling Chair

Why so serious about the Ergonomic Kneeling Chair now?  I have been a professional desk jockey since 2000, I have kept my eye on a lot of products that would enable a better workplace for myself and this chair is one of them.  I had my reservations about this product since I had read some negative reviews about the chair causing too much pressure on the knees.  Now that I have been sitting at a desk for 17 years, I think I’m ready for some options!

They say that the flavor of life is variety, and I am ready to experience a variety of sitting and standing positions in my home office.

Current Setup

I have normal office chair with a product called Mobo Chair Mount Ergo Keyboard and Mouse Tray System – 2.5-Inch x 12.5-Inch x 7.5-Inch – Black:

which I recommend for only wireless setups and chairs that are wide enough so you can still fit inside.   This product is great but I find myself wanting to change positions after a few hours of sitting down.

Ergonomic Kneeling Chair

There are a few options out there with prices ranging from $60 to $300+, the specific chair I’m looking into purchasing is the SLEEKFORM Ergonomic Kneeling Chair, Adjustable Stool For Home and Office – Thick Comfortable Cushions:

This specific listing has received the most ratings and is within my budget!  The most common complaints I see are defects either from the manufacturer or during shipping, there maybe a bit of a hassle but Amazon has our back just make sure to read the return policy.

The best advice that I have found from someone who purchased the product is that they say to ease into the use slowly.  They recommend transitioning over to the ergo kneeling chair slowly due to the use of your core and lower back.  After reading that I’m really excited to try it out!   I will follow up with an update after I receive the product.  If you or someone you know has this product please let me know!
