Ergonomic sit stand stools offer a flexible design that provides a surface to sit down when necessary or as a surface to lean against when standing. They permit the ease of transfer from a sitting to a standing position in a quick fashion. They come with an extended seat height that is higher than most standard office chairs and can be adjusted to meet your specific height requirements. Sit stand stools come standard with seat height adjustment while more ergonomic versions come with seat angle adjustment as well to allow for people to lean against while standing. Sit stand stools are most effectively used in environments and professions that require standing most of the day such as labs, pharmacies, production lines, for architects, for artists, for painters, for bank tellers, or for anyone that sits at a counter.
Leather: Most ”Leather” that you will find in your bar stool search is actually fabric-backed vinyl. Due to the extra time and cost required for real leather seating, the price of the bar stool will generally be $50 to $150 MORE than a comparable vinyl but will last much longer and feel much better due to its ability to ”Breathe”. Vinyl is prone to tearing, cracking and warping more so than fabric or leather. Synthetic suede fabrics are a much better option if this is a concern. Sun, dry air, excessive heat and cold as well as exposure to certain chemicals or cleaners can also destroy vinyl.
Stools that will be used frequently or for long periods of time (dining, game rooms, commercial bars, etc.) should typically include arms AND backs to increase comfort and decrease stress on your back and shoulders. If your horizontal (floor space) is limited, you may choose armless. Arms generally add 3 to 6 inches to the overall width of a single bar stool and can add up to 18” in width on just 3 bar stools. (See ”How Many Do I Need?) Backless stools are great when you need occasional extra seating or in situations where you don’t want to obstruct a view with tall backs. Example: You may have an open floor plan and do not want to obstruct your view from one room to another. Also consider any outside views. If your game room or kitchen faces a lake or river, for example, you may not want backs extending above your counter that may obstruct your view.
Drafting stools are the perfect addition to any work environment with a raised work station where a normal office chair would not be able to be raised high enough to meet the height requirements. There are many different drafting stools available to choose from, which is why you need to know exactly what you are looking for before making any purchasing decisions. If you suffer from back pain, you will want to find an ergonomic drafting stool that offers built-in lumbar support and preferably an adjustable back rest that will allow you to properly position the support to your lower back. It is also best to have more adjustability than less, so look for a drafting stool that offers multiple adjustments such as back angle adjustment, seat angle adjustment, and back height adjustment. Also keep in mind most drafting chairs will not allow you to lean back and recline like a typical office chair would for safety concerns.
