The NOSTND Sit-Stand Comfort Seat from Mey Chair Systems is designed to help users with larger builds work as close as possible to a raised workstation, particularly those built on top of base cabinets or shelves. Unlike the seats on a leaning seat or traditional stool, the large plush saddle on the NOSTND is designed to be straddled. Seated posture on the NOSTND is more upright, with the heels positioned behind the bend of the knees, rather than extended forward of the knees as they would be in a leaning position. (See the Tulean Sit-Stand Comfort Leaning Stool, also by Mey Chair Systems, for an illustration of this latter position.) This posture allows the user to move in much closer to flat-fronted work surfaces than might otherwise be possible. As a result, the NOSTND Sit-Stand Comfort Seat helps to reduce the risk of overreach injuries to the muscles of the shoulders and back, and the risk of injury to the muscles of the sides and mid-section caused by sitting sideways along the base of the workstation and twisting at the waist to get close enough to its surface. By supporting the majority of the user's weight on the seat, the NOSTND also helps to reduce the load generally borne by the feet and legs. Overall fatigue, and the risk of strain on the joints and tissues of the lower limbs can be greatly reduced.

Both the saddle style seat and the large back feature 3" cushioning; and both are height adjustable. The height of the seat can be adjusted between 23.25 and 28.75". The height adjustment range of the back is determined by the seat position. A handle and large rollers on the back glides enable the NOSTND to be easily moved as required. The NOSTND dual rectangular steel tube base is rated to support up to 440 pounds.

Larger users looking for a more traditional style of seat may be interested in considering the RSTMOR Sit-Stand Chair, also from Mey Chair Systems.

The Stance Move chair's unique design enables users to shift between multiple sitting positions throughout the day. Designed with Sit-Stand workstations in mind, it provides three distinct seating positions - Forward Sloped Sitting, Kneeling, and Assisted Standing. Each of these options moves the user away from the static closed-core position that traditional seating creates. The backless design encourages the users to maintain an upright stance by actively supporting their pelvis in a forward tilt which improves back posture. This position encourages strengthening of core muscles as the user is required to maintain torso balance at all three settings. By removing the seat back the risk of slouching or rounding of the lower back is significantly reduced, which in turn can reduce the risk and occurrence of lower back pain which is often related to traditional seating.

With a simple move of a lever the Stance Move converts into a kneeling stance, a well-known posture which positively encourages proper spine positioning by tilting the pelvis even further forward than the Forward Tilt mode. The Kneeling position which has been used in many workplaces throughout the years. The thick kneeling cushions support the knees and spread pressure to enable users to comfortably maintain this position for extended periods.

For users who prefer a more upright position or who wish to fully vary their seating throughout the day, the Assisted Standing position is the third position offered. Many users of Sit-Stand workstations have found that standing for extended periods can be exhausting as the standing position requires muscles to be held in constant tension in order to be able to maintain that static position. As these users have discovered, muscle fatigue can occur even in a standing position. As well, the lower legs and feet begin to tire over the course of the day, resulting in an overall loss of energy. This loss of energy will translate into a more "slumped" posture as the body tires. The slumped position then further accentuates the fatigue as it puts strain on muscles and tendons which are already tired from extended use. The Assisted Standing position is intended to address this as it takes a percentage of the weight load and transfers it to the chair rather than placing it directly over the feet and legs. The enables the muscles of the legs and lower back to relax, thereby reducing the fatigue related to continuous tension. The release of muscle tension in the lower legs will also permit better bloodflow in the legs, something which is a known concern related to extended static standing.

The Stance Move is designed for users up to 5'9". Taller users will benefit from the Stance Move EXT 5050 which comes with a seat extension.

RISON Sit-Stand Stool (Classic)

The RISON Sit-Stand Stool (Classic) from Mey Chair Systems offers users the option of intermittently adopting a sitting position throughout the workday. Employing the RISON to bear the bulk of body weight permits the feet and legs to rest, reducing fatigue and potentially contributing to a more alert user.

The non-vertical, or leaning, stance effectively reduces the weight load on the joints of both the legs and the feet as the stool, rather than the legs and feet, becomes the load bearing support. The ability to position the seat in an elevated position also significantly reduces the effort required to return to a fully standing position. The shock absorbing effect of the easily adjusted gas cylinder provides additional comfort when the user sits down.

The non-pivoting seat offers an infinitely adjustable height range from 26" - 35.5" - suitable for users from about 5'2" up to 6'6". The polyurethane seat provides a firm yet cushioned seating surface with raised texture bumps. The detachable back support is also formed from the same foam as the seat. (Note: The back on the 11120 has a 2.5" deep curvature in the middle, is 14" wide, and has firm edges. Some users with broader frames may find the back on this model too narrow and deep for a comfortable fit. As an alternative they may wish to consider the EZSIT Comfort Elite Sit-Stand Stool , also from Mey Chair Systems, which offers a broader back (and seat) better suited to users of larger build.)

While the seat does offer the option of tilting it to accommodate a "leaning" position rather than the seated position the fact that the back support on this model is rigidly mounted to the tilting mechanism means that it is really only suitable for upright sitting (ie. when tilted the back follows the movement of the seat and prevents the adoption of a proper upright stance. Users wishing to use this seat as a "leaning" seat should consider the current model of the RISON which now incorporates independent back angle adjustment into the seat mechanism. The current seat-only version of the RISON is also available in two height ranges to accommodate the varying needs of users.

The heavy-duty textured black tubular steel base on the RISON Sit-Stand Leaning Stool is designed for industrial settings but functions well in many offices, providing strength and stability. Strong nylon glides engage the floor to ensure firm positioning of the seat and the incorporated rollers permit the chair to be easily moved between workstations. The unique design of the base maximizes stability while greatly reducing the risk of tripping for passersby.

The CITZ Sit-Stand Stool from Mey Chair Systems is intended to provide industrial workers with a seating solution that can be an aid to improving their overall health and to encourage greater safety in the workplace. The wider stance when straddling a saddle seat provides users with a much wider range of reach, while at the same time ensuring excellent stability and control. The upright stance also provided by saddle sitting is known to encourage upper body movement which can lead to better and deeper breathing and has the potential to improve overall blood flow.

Both the seat and back support are formed from firmly cushioned self-surfaced polyurethane foam that can be easily cleaned, ideal for workplaces where cleaning may be necessary. The fibreglass-reinforced base is equipped with special self-braking casters which permit the CITZ to roll freely when in use but brake when the user lifts their weight. This ensures that the seat remains in the same position from which they stood, adding to the safety and enhancing the ability of the seat to aid users in maintaining focus on the task at hand. A full 360° of free rotation enables users to easily align to equipment or reach other work areas as needed. The gas lift provides a seat height anywhere between 20.9" and 26.4" and the seat also has the option of forward tilt up to 15°. This tilted seat position rotates the pelvis forward, providing a more natural alignment of the back--both healthier and more comfortable for many users. For users who need or are looking for back support, this chair is equipped with a removable height and angle adjustable back support.

Note: Some users with broader frames may find the firmness of the concave edges on the back less than ideal for comfort. The outer dimensions of the back support are 14" wide with a 2.5" deep curvature in the middle.

Note: Sitting on a saddle stool elevates a user higher than a standard seat. Saddle stools are therefore not generally recommended as a replacement for seating at a standard office desk. Please call one of our Product Specialists to discuss your intended use of the CITZ Sit-Stand Stool. We will be happy to help you find the best solution for your needs.

The MVMNT Folding Sit-Stand Saddle Chair from Mey Chair Systems is a non-swiveling, foldable saddle seat designed for smaller or average sized users working at standard or elevated workstations.

With its saddle-style seat, and a base-mounted footrest that keeps the toes approximately in line with the knees (rather than extended forward of the knees as they would be on a leaning stool), the MVMNT allows users to sit as close as possible to a work surface built on top of base cabinets or shelves. The MVMNT keeps the torso in an ergonomically desirable upright position, while at the same time providing stability and reducing the need to bend forward from the waist. This posture is especially beneficial when fine control is needed or when greater effort must be exerted. The small back rest offers temporary support for users who like to lean back occasionally.

The height of the seat can be adjusted from 20.9" high, to 30.7" high. The height of the back rest can be adjusted independently to allow users to position support where it is needed. The seat and back rest are both padded for comfort and upholstered in black imitation leather for easy cleaning. The MVMNT features a foot-bar to provide a secure base of support when the chair is elevated. The height of the foot-bar can be adjusted independently of the seat height and can easily be folded out of the way when not required or for storage and transport.

The MVMNT features simple folding hinges, and easy handwheel adjustment of seat, back and footrest heights. The MVMNT is built on a sturdy, rectangular tube steel base. Rated to 264 lbs, but weighing only 18.7 lbs in total, the Chair can be easily transported between venues or job sites.
