Are you among the many office workers who experience pain and fatigue during or after your work day? If so, you’re not alone. That’s why I’m so excited to review the Side Saddle Standing Chair, a new seating and standing solution from Buttress Furniture. It has the potential to help reduce your pain and improve your posture – keep reading to learn how!
Many desk workers find themselves stuck behind desks for far too long, which can cause PAIN and musculoskeletal disorders. Standing desks are touted as the one-and-done solution for prolonged sitting, but the truth is that current research suggests and guidelines recommend standing in only 30-minute increments.
A new solution
The Side Saddle Standing Chair bridges the gap between sitting and standing, letting you switch between positions at your standing desk in order to reduce the fatigue and lower back tightness caused by extended periods of standing. This innovative solution leverages a “flamingo position” by supporting one buttock or glute at a time. The idea is to alternate between legs, all while maintaining the correct supported posture.
I envision a day where the user alternates between different stances. Standing, flamingo right, flamingo left, and then perching with both legs up on the front stool. That’s 4 different postures throughout the day! As I like to always say… “you next posture is your best posture”.
My favorite part is that with this chair, you can incorporate movement throughout the workday thanks to its design that encourages seamless position changes. Watch the video below where I demonstrate all the different options it provides!
All in all, the Side Saddle Standing Chair is a great ergonomic option. It’s a good way to stay comfortable and safe while working at a standing desk. Give it a try for yourself by ordering from Buttress Furniture.
