iMovR Birdi Perching Stool Navy

iMovR Birdi Perching Stool Review

At $159, the Birdi is a well-priced, lab-tested perching stool great for active workstations. The thick, high-resilient foam also makes the Birdi noticeably more comfortable than many of its leaning stool competitors. While a no-back perching stool-style may not be for everyone, …

iMovR Tempo Sit-Stand Stool Review

With similar ergonomic adjustability as the TreadTop Chair (only lacking a full-sized back rest), the Stool offers surprisingly good comfort—whether used as a seat, or as a standing “perch”—and is ideal for office workers looking for a portable seat they can move from the cubicle…

Biofit Bimos Fin Leaning Chair Review

The Fin’s a gorgeous product with a fatal flaw. The black-and-silver body looks lovely, and would do any office proud. We’re also major fans of leaning stools, as they inject a little activity into a seated workday. However, Biofit’s inexplicable decision to equip the Fin with…

FreedMan Ergonomic Chair Review

The chair is designed to replicate standing posture as you sit. Freedman has observed in his osteopathic practice that most people have slightly different length legs, which translates to one side of your pelvis being higher than the other.

Focal Upright’s Locus Leaning Stand Up Desk Review

An ergonomist’s dream realized by a craftsman. Focal owe themselves a pat on the back – the Locus really is an impressive piece of work. We’ve seen leaning chairs before, but most follow a somewhat Spartan mold. Not so with the Locus; the pairing of desk and chair makes this the …
