Why active sitting?
When the body is forced to remain in a rigid seated position for long periods of time, it can have a detrimental effect on our overall health and wellbeing. It is a common misconception that regular exercise can compensate for too much sitting.
Sitting on a Symbiotic active chair will encourage the body to remain active even while seated, by stimulating the use of core muscles, and adapting to the natural movements of the body.
What makes Symbiotic different to conventional ergonomic chairs?
Additionally, the unique sculpted backrest with pronounced lower back support follows a user’s movements in all directions and provides counter-force against the lower back when a user leans against it. Symbiotic was designed as an active working chair to stimulate an upright sitting posture, and this is why it is not equipped with a reclining mechanism like most conventional ergonomic chairs and does not support a lounging position.
Why is Symbiotic better than an exercise ball?
Why are there no arms on Symbiotic?
Without the armrests, users can tuck deep under the desk and rest their hands on the desk using a keyboard and mouse, which is often impossible because of the armrests.
Finally, without the armrests, users can experience more benefits in terms of improving postural mechanisms and strengthening their core stability muscles.
