Many people turn to kneeling chairs in an attempt to deal with a lot of pain and discomfort caused by sitting. Pain may even be seriously interfering with your ability to earn a living. The WL-1429-GG Ergonomic Kneeling Chair from Flash Furniture may be just what you need. At less than $100 it’s one of the most affordable chairs reviewed here. It features rollers rather than casters, striking a happy medium between mobility and stability.
One common problem people have with kneeling chairs is getting in and out of them. How exactly do you sit on a kneeling chair? Do you straddle it from behind or stand beside it? If you’re in a lot of pain or have reduced mobility, it can be quite a conundrum. This model features polyurethane foam handles to make getting up and down easier. You can also choose not to install the handles if this feature doesn’t interest you.
That said, this chair doesn’t work for everybody. Some people have complained that the padding is too thin for comfort, though you may be able to remedy this by adding a gel pad. Other people have complained that the knee rest is quite small, which didn’t allow them to space their knees comfortably apart. And, as always, you get what you pay for. With a cheaper model you will find that the foam on the handles doesn’t last, and you may have to replace the chair sooner than with a more expensive model.
On the whole, this is an affordable and functional choice that has made working life easier for a lot of people with back pain.
