CoreChair, an active sitting health and wellness chair, was designed by Patrick Harrison, a kinesiologist and seating solutions expert with a vision for healthier workplaces based on movement.
Traditional office chairs (even high end ergonomic ones) keep us sitting still, and our back health, mental sharpness and productivity all suffer as a result.
The CoreChair provides freedom of movement through a range of 14 degrees in all directions with a unique postural support system that focuses on the pelvis as the foundation. Moving on the chair enhances joint mobilization of the hips, pelvis and spine, stimulates circulation, hydrates and nourishes the vertebral discs and engages and strengthens core stabilizing muscles. Overall, movement on the CoreChair improves cognitive ability, general health and spinal health.
Eight years in development, the CoreChair is a well-researched sitting solution that recently received NEAT™ certification through the Mayo Clinic (NEAT™ stands for non-exercise activity thermogenesis – meaning that movement on the chair actually burns calories). The science of NEAT™ confirms that activity, all activity, is important and has an impact on caloric expenditure and cardiovascular health.
Healthy workplaces benefit both employers and employees. Employers are in a unique position of being able to positively impact the health and wellness of employees through strategic wellness programs and investments in health and wellness products such as the CoreChair which retails for $995.
