After you’ve sat on it for a few days, you’ll never want to go back to your old way of sitting.
Designed by Peter Opsvik in 1979, our Variable balans is the original kneeling chair. A Varier classic, the seat gently tilts the pelvis forward and encourages a natural, dynamic and upright spine. The muscles in your abdomen and back will engage to keep the spine upright and your body balanced, which further strengthens core muscles and prevents back and shoulder tension. The angle between the upper and lower body increases, which greatly improves your circulation. As the body moves from an active to a relaxed posture, the flexible runners respond with a gentle rocking pendular motion. This \'active sitting\' chair can also be equipped with an optional \'slat\' style backrest. The Varier Variable Balans Ships Free in 1-2 Days.

We encourage any hesitant customer by telling them this. Try it out. If you don\'t like it take it apart and return it to us. It\'s a slim line box that costs little to ship so returns are not costly. We only ask that while you are testing it out, keep it on a carpeted surface so that the bottom runnners are not scratched. We take very few of these back and the retention rate is close to 98% which speaks volumes for how happy our customers are with the Variable. We think you might enjoy one as well. It\'s a high quality product made in Norway but stocked here in the USA. OfficeChairs USA is an authorized Varier retailer.
