Because of its design, the ergonomic kneeling chair allows the person sitting in the chair a previously unseen freedom of movement in furniture. One-at-a-time, the feet can be alternately placed on the ground to provide a stretch to the hamstrings. In this position, one knee remains on the kneeling chair's shin pad while the other leg extends with minimal bend to the knee. This hamstring stretch releases not only the leg muscles but also the hips, which ultimately result in back pain. Also, a foot can be placed on the shin pad to get an effective stretch to the backs of the hips and IT band. A rolling ergonomic chair allows for an accentuation of these stretches as the 360 degree mobility will allow for more stretching intensity and more angles of stretching. The sitter can exercise lateral stretching by swiveling the chair either to the left or right, giving relief and extension to the side ribs and oblique muscles. This mobile freedom gives the chair an advanced approach to ergonomic health.
A rolling base is also nice as it increases the reach distance from your home base: namely your desk. In an office setting, typically we turn in our seats for various tasks: grabbing a stapler, talking to a coworker, or picking up a fax. A wheeled base affords a safe turn around, without straining and twisting the neck and back. Repeated movements, over time, can culminate in an imbalance of muscular development on one side. For example, if your phone is on the left side of your monitor and you answer your phone 10 times per day, the muscles associated with turning to the left will become over-developed in comparison to the right. If you're in a stationary chair, its a good idea to switch the placement of frequently used objects. With a rolling base ergonomic kneeling chair, this is automatically accomplished by the swivel action of the chair.
