Two-Legged Chair May Be Uncomfortable, But It Forces Better Posture

‘Bearable Discomfort’ increases awareness, balance, and muscle tone

Standing desks are a well-established alternative to sitting all day, but what about a two-legged chair that forces you to endure mild discomfort for the sake of better posture?

Inactivité forces people to avoid stationary postures and encourage them to be more mobile – at the very least it’s the perfect reminder that you should get up from your desk once in a while to get some exercise.
