We recommend kneeling chairs for short-term tasks requiring forward reach or fine hand-manipulative tasks such as writing with pen and paper, eating at a table, and sewing.

We discourage kneeling chairs for prolonged sitting, particularly if you are tall and cannot find a kneeling chair that accommodates your leg length. Kneeling chairs restrict navigation and movement around the work area, and for average-sized adults, produce unhealthy pressures on bent knees. This can restrict circulation and irritate the knee joints in some people.
