    Think this applies to most of us, well I know I spend most of my day sitting Can chair design make sitting healthier?

    "These micro-movements originate at the seat, which is made of a thin plastic that deforms very easily. Because it’s so flexible, sitters open up their legs to balance, as you would on a horse (“saddle seats” do something similar). The pelvis tilts downward and the spinal position neutralizes. This way, kids avoid the dreaded “right angle” sitting position that has been linked to so many health problems as of late. The desk tilts up like a drafting table, getting kids closer to what they’re working on"

    That's an interesting design from Perch using a flexible material to provide a better sitting position. I would have thought that all seats should at least give you a good sitting posture and be comfortable to sit in and not damage your health while doing so. On the other hand, maybe it’s more the fault of the user, them not sitting in the chair correctly.
