Minimal Footprint

You don't need a lot of space to be more active at work. This specially designed seat provides maximum movement to engage your legs, back, and core while taking up less space than an average office chair.

Made to Move

A fully articulating pedestal means you can move in any direction to keep your lower body engaged. You can also raise the adjustable desk stool to lean against while using a standing desk.
