Our website is intended to explain the problems with passive sitting, and propose a solution, active sitting. However, active sitting is not a medical treatment, and our chairs are not medical devices because there is no peer reviewed research showing that active sitting “cures, mitigates, treats, or prevents a disease”.
So, while we have heard from many folks who are excited to tell us that our chairs have improved, or cured, their back problems, these amount to “case reports”, instances where sitting actively was very helpful to individuals. While we’re hopeful that our chairs will be helpful to you, there’s as yet research proving this connection. Similarly, folks have told us our chairs have caused them to loose weight, improved their golf game and even, well, you get the picture. We can’t say which, of any, of these claims will bear up over time, but we can say that we’re delighted that people have found our chairs helpful.
