As society evolves, we spend more and more time sitting. Usually in front of a device. Unfortunately, our bodies weren't made for long periods of sitting. It causes all sorts of musculoskeletal ailments and conditions. Ergonomic stools take the pressure off your back and legs – some even strengthen your core – so doing work doesn't become hazardous to your health. The best ergonomic stools are comfortable, lightweight, but sturdy – they can easily support your weight – and they can raise, lower, and roll effortlessly. Some models feature a modern design that is as pleasing to the eye as it is comforting to the rest of your body. You'll also want a chair that swivels. And, if you suffer from allergies, you can purchase a hypoallergenic model.
