Are knee chairs any good? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
My friend had one and i very nearly killed myself when i rocked on it and got my legs stuck, honestly if you want something to sit on that will help your lower back get a Gym ball, you have to maintain good posture on one and it works your core while your at it.

Get a height adjustable desk and raise it high enough to stand while using the computer.

If you don't want to spend too much money on a proper chair you could buy one of those posture correctors to put on your current chair. They're designed to stop you slouching.

Didn't believe they could work until my parents got me one (as i do suffer from back pain), hurt like hell for the first couple of days then starts to work after a while, one of these kind of things


But agreeing with other people correct height chair and desk is highly recommended.

Don't use the "O" word on the forum... that place is scary.
