For many people, the “stand” half of a sit-stand desk can be a little scary at first, but once you do it, many find it is a game-changer for your health, mood, and productivity. But what a lot of people don’t realize is that you shouldn’t be standing all day. Studies actually show that you should be alternating between sitting and standing pretty equally throughout your day . So when you do have to sit, it’s important to have a chair that keeps you moving. That is where VARIChair comes in.
The VARIChair is the perfect solution for your sitting, or standing, needs. Much like the large exercise balls that many sit on at their desks, the VARIChair has an articulating pedestal that gives you a wide range of motion and allows you to work your back, core, and leg muscles. But, unlike an exercise ball, the VARIChair can also can be raised and used to lean on while you are standing.
