Active seating refers to chairs or stools that allow you to move around while you’re sitting on them. This can help you work your core muscles while you’re seated, and can promote better posture. When you use active seating while you work, you can boost your energy levels during the day, since you won’t be slouching.
There are many active seating options on the market today, but the options we’re comparing are versatile because they can be adjusted to height suitable for standing or sitting. They’re lightweight so you can easily move them from place to place. That’s especially important when you first start using active seating—you might need some time to adjust.
Here are the specifications for three active seating options, including the Wobble Stool from Uncaged Ergonomics.
