Sitting is not an intrinsic human behavior.
While sitting is the preferred resting position for every household and offices, a study by the University of Southern California begs to differ. As it turns out, squatting and kneeling is way better for you than sitting.
If we were in a parallel universe, all of us are probably kneeling or squatting instead of sitting but alas, there is no other way to get rid of chairs overnight. Which is why, FlexiSpot offers ergonomic sitting solutions for everyone who sits for extended periods of time.
These sitting solutions are the Height Adjustable Wobble Stool BH2 and Soutien Ergonomic Office Chair. The two may seem worlds apart but both are just as ergonomic as the other. If you are still having a hard time between an ergonomic stool or ergonomic office chair, do not worry! This article would provide you the benefits to look forward to these ergonomic sitting solutions by FlexiSpot.
Keep Yourself Steady with the Height Adjustable Wobble Stool BH2
Sitting on an ergonomic wobble stool is perfect for people who tend to have a ton of energy to give out. This type of chair is perfect for those who use a standing desk but still need a hand (or seat) since the transition from a regular desk to a standing one can be hard for beginners.
Height Adjustable Wobble Stool BH2 also positions your thighs in a downwards slope which is particularly helpful for your pelvis and lower back since you are in an optimum position while maintaining your spine’s natural curve. This significantly reduces the stress, aches, and strain caused by a bad posture.
Your knees would also benefit from this ergonomic wobble stool because there is almost no effort needed when you will stand upright for your standing desk. Your knees would feel no stress once you change your stance to comfortably use a standing desk.
Since you are not in a fully-seated position or standing for a long time, your chances of getting a swollen lower leg is one to none percent. That is not all because you are also doing your whole body a great service by encouraging better blood flow to your legs as well as the other parts of you. While your blood circulation improves, you also increase your mental attentiveness as your brain receives more blood and oxygen flow which is crucial for mental and bodily processes.
The upright stance will work your core too as you use your back and core muscles to keep yourself in equilibrium during working. This effectively makes your core stronger without even hitting the gym (although, nothing will ever beat a great workout session in a gym).
