”I have a bad back, and have had sciatica for the last 2 months, and it is honestly the first chair I have sat on in the last 2 months that was not painful.  I am a software developer, so like many people I sit at a desk all day.  I'm optimistic this will be a big improvement over the kneeling chair I currently use, which is already a big improvement over a traditional chair.  I love the simple and elegant design, but most importantly the ease of motion and ability to smoothly shift my weight around on it, and stand up and sit back down.”
