Kneeling Stool or Chair. A kneeling chair essentially forces you into a downward kneeling position. This seating arrangement then keeps your spine erect, therefore alleviating upper back and arm strain when working at a computer. Remember though, it's important to make sure the stool is properly adjusted to fit you or it can cause uncomfortable cramping. The one drawback of kneeling stools is that they can be hard on the knees after prolonged use. Before you buy, make sure you get one that offers ample padding on the knee pad or consider purchasing a stool with a Tempurpedic knee rest.
Are your knees below your hips? When seated with your feet resting on the floor, you want to ensure your knees are below your hips. This is especially critical on heavy use chairs to ensure you maintain proper circulation below the knee. As a general rule, the angle formed by your torso and thighs should be between 90 and 105 degrees. Is the chair rounded at the front? A rounded front also helps to maintain proper circulation in your legs. How’s the back? Make sure the back rest feels comfortable. Lumbar support systems vary, so make sure the fit is good.
