1. Sitmatic Pogo – 86/100 Rating

Pogo Price: $406.99 (Buy on BTOD)

Read Full Sitmatic Pogo Review >>

Pogo Stool Pros and Cons

Pros:

Made in USA
Solid warranty
Good seat comfort
Wide range of motion
Large seat height adjustment range
No weight limit
Good option for big & tall

Cons:

May not be good for long hours
Lack of sitting mobility

Sitmatic Pogo Summary

What we liked

The Pogo is a standing chair that is made in the USA by Sitmatic. It has a solid steel base with a piston that is mounted to the base with a spring. The piston is tilted forward slightly. The spring at the base gives you a big range of motion. The Pogo has the largest range of motion out of any chairs with this type of design.

The seat is made from thick molded foam. The seat is not big but it is flat, so you get more surface area than similar chairs that have seats with rounded tops. The foam is soft, supportive and feels nice to sit on. It is not firm like most chairs on this list. The Pogo is also a nice option for big and tall people. It has a massive seat height range and no weight limit.

What we didn’t like

There are a couple things that may be deal breakers for people considering the Pogo. The first is that the Pogo is not a good choice if you need a chair to use for many hours in a day. It takes quite a bit of energy to use the chair so it may not be reasonable for some people to use it for several hours at a time. Our next downside is that the Pogo does not have any sitting mobility. Most of the chairs on this list are in the same boat, but it is not something to overlook.

. Ergo Impact Leanrite Elite – 79/100 Rating

Leanrite Elite Price: $619.00 (Buy on Amazon)

Read Full Leanrite Elite Standing Chair Review >>#3 standing desk chair ergo impact leanrite elite

Leanrite Elite Pros and Cons

Pros:

Unique seat tilt function
Huge seat height range
Good build quality
Good range of motion
Strong warranty
Anti-Fatigue mat
May be good option for longer hours

Cons:

Takes up a lot of space
Seat may be uncomfortable
Poor sitting mobility
Poor portability

Ergo Impact Leanrite Summary

What we liked

The LeanRite Elite is a standing chair that features a dual stage height adjustment system. This gives it a massive height adjustment range. The LeanRite’s seat also has the capability to tilt and it can tilt enough to be straight up and down. This allows you to rest up against it with you lower back when you are fully standing. This is the only standing chair we have tested that allows to you lean while fully standing. The massive seat height range also means that the LeanRite will work for a wide range of people. The Leanrite features a built-in footrest with an anti-fatigue mat. The footrest help tot keep the chair stable while also giving you a soft surface to stand on.

What we didn’t like

The LeanRite Elite is not a standing chair you buy if you plan on moving it around the office or if you have a limited amount of space. The chair has a large footprint because of the built-in footrest. This makes it more difficult to move and put to the side in your office.

The seat may also be an issue for some people. Like most standing chair seats, it is fairly small. It is also firm. The integral skin used is durable and easy to clean, but it is not soft and has a more industrial feel.

. Back App 2.0 – 79/100 Rating

Back App 2.0 Starting Price: $596.00 (Buy on BTOD) (Buy on Amazon)
Read Full Back App 2.0 Review >>#4 standing desk chair back app 2.0

Back App 2.0 Pros and Cons

Pros:

Good build quality
Strong warranty
Wide range of motion
Large seat with thick padding
Adjustable ball allows you to change range of motion
Caster option for siting mobility

Cons:

Saddle seat is not for everyone
Limited height range
Costly return policy
May not be good for long hours

Back App 2.0 Summary

What we liked

The Back App 2.0 was designed by Dr. Freddy Johnsen and features high quality components that are backed by a strong 5-year warranty. The base is composed of recycled aluminum with a rubber like material, called Nitrile, around the bottom. The rubber material allows the base of the chair to wobble.

The chair features a ball on the bottom side of the piston which can be adjusted in or out. When the ball is extended out, the amount of tilt will be increased, which will allow you to move more while you work. This is one of the only chairs I have tested that has some type of adjustability to the motion produced by the chair.

The Back App 2.0 also features a large, saddle shaped seat with thick padding and a collar around the back. Most chairs on this list feature small, firm seats so the seat on the Back App 2.0 really stands out in this group. The Back App 2.0 is one of the only standing chairs I have tested that was still comfortable after 2+ hours of use in one sitting.

What we didn’t like

The biggest drawbacks to the Back App 2.0 are going to be the saddle shaped seat and limited height adjustment range. The saddle shaped seat is pretty specific and may not be comfortable for everyone. The height adjustment range should be ok for most people, but it will not adjust low enough to be used at a standard height desk. You will need to have an adjustable height desk to use the Back App 2.0.

. Focal Upright Locus – 77/100 Rating

Locus Price: $540.28 (Buy on Amazon)
Read Full Focal Upright Locus Standing Chair Review >>#5 standing desk chair focal locus seat

Focal Locus Pros and Cons

Pros:

Good build quality
Strong warranty
Fits a wide range of people
Large range of motion
Built-in footrest with anti-fatigue mat

Cons:

Take up a lot of space
Uncomfortable seat
May not be good for long hours
Poor sitting mobility

Focal Upright Locus Summary

What we liked

The next standing chair on our list is the Locus Seat, designed by Martin Keen. This is a very unique product because it is the only standing chair that has a built-in footrest to aid in the leaning position. Although the Locus Seat is made in China, it is one of the higher end standing chairs I have seen.

The platform used to create the footrest is made from 13-layer hard plywood and is covered in black grip tape. A Focal logo’d, polyurethane anti-fatigue mat that matches the shape of the platform is included. The entire platform feels very sturdy. The front of the platform has two wheels for better mobility and the seat folds down, making it easy to place in storage.

The seat has a concave shape that cradles you and is padded with an EVA foam seat cushion. This type of material provides good support but it is much stiffer than a normal office chair. The seat is connected to the platform with an anodized extruded aluminum leg. The leg provides a huge range of motion, allowing you to move in any direction.

The seat also pivots front to back which helps to create a more comfortable position when the angle of the leg is changed. The adjustment range on both the pole and the depth of the footrest are large enough to make the Locus suitable for people from 4’11” to 6’8”.

What we didn’t like

The biggest drawbacks to the Locus Seat are the amount of space it takes up in front of your desk and that it cannot be used in a normal sitting position. There are a handful of options that can be used with your legs at or close to 90° while also allowing you to be in a perching position around 135°. Unfortunately, the Locus Seat is not one of those options.

. Focal Pivot – 76/100 Rating

Pivot Price: $298.99 (Buy on Amazon)
Read Full Focal Pivot Standing Desk Stool Review >>#6 standing desk chair focal pivot

Focal Pivot Pros and Cons

Pros:

Strong warranty
Large range of motion
Fits a wide range of people
Good portability
Built-in seat handle for carrying

Cons:

Wobble base can feel unstable
Seat may be too stiff for some people
Not a good option for long hours
Poor sitting mobility

Focal Pivot Summary

What we liked

The Focal Pivot is another product to make our list that is from Focal and designed by Martin Keen. The Pivot features a fiberglass reinforced nylon seat pan with EVA foam for the seat cushion. The height adjustment is done with a steel gas cylinder.

The base on the Pivot is a bit unique for a standing chair because it is not flat and stable like the majority of products. Instead of a flat base, the Pivot has a rounded bottom with Octogrip Overmold grips. The base is weighted with concrete. The concrete and grip combination keep the base from sliding but still allows you to wobble and swivel in any direction you’d like. Since there is no tilt restriction in the base, you have a much larger range a motion on the Pivot than models with flat bases.

The seat on the Pivot has a concave, contoured shape with a waterfall front edge. It is tilted slightly forward to help promote an open hip angle. The seat feels more like it is holding you instead of feeling like you are simply sitting on top of it. I like that the seat on the Pivot also allows you to sit on the top of it when leaning while other seats are designed to sit on the front edge.

What we didn’t like

There are two main drawbacks I have found with the Pivot. The first is that the seat is not padded like a normal chair so it provides a stiffer sit. This may be a problem for some people. The second drawback is that the wobble base can feel unstable and may take some time to get used to.

. Varier Move – 75/100 Rating

Move Starting Price: $349.00 (Buy on BTOD) (Buy on Amazon)
Read Full Varier Move Standing Desk Chair Review >>#7 standing desk chair varier move

Varier Move Pros and Cons

Pros:

Good build quality
Strong warranty
Adjusts high enough for tall people
Can be used in normal sitting position with short cylinder

Cons:

Saddle seat can be awkward for some
Not suitable for full upright leaning
May not be good for long hours
Poor sitting mobility

Varier Move Summary

What we liked

The Move by Varier is a product that was designed in Norway by Per Øie and is currently manufactured in Poland. It has been in production since 1985 so it has stood the test of time. It features a high build quality with parts coming from Germany and Norway and it is backed by a strong warranty. The base is made from hardwood and is curved upwards on the edges.

The Move is a bit unique because it promotes a wobble motion but the base also has a flat section to allow to you sit without having to hold the chair in place. The edges of the base don’t end up going completely vertical so the range of motion is more limited than products like the Pivot or Uncaged Wobble.

The Move is the second saddle seat product to be featured on this list but it is much different than the Back App 2.0. The seat has three sides and each corner curves up slightly. The seat is well padded and the fabric used is good quality. The height adjustment range is massive because there are three cylinder height options. They provide a total range of 19”-34” which makes the Move a good choice for people of almost any height.

What we didn’t like

The seat is meant to be sat on top of so it can be a bit awkward to use the Move at a full upright leaning position. It doesn’t tilt far enough forward to allow you to sit on top of the seat and the points in the saddle make it uncomfortable to sit on the edge. I found it to be much more comfortable in perching positions.

. Focal Mobis II – 75/100 Rating

Mobis II Price: $721.94 (Buy on Amazon)
Read Full Focal Mobis II Standing Desk Stool Review >>#8 standing desk chair focal mobis II

Mobis II Pros and Cons

Pros:

Great portability
Strong warranty
Good range of motion
Adjusts high enough for tall people
Built-in seat handle for carrying
Very stable at all heights

Cons:

Seat may be too stiff for some people
Poor sitting mobility
Not comfortable for long hours

Focal Mobis II Summary

What we liked

The trend continues with Focal products designed by Martin Keen. The Mobis II is similar to the Pivot but it features a stationary base instead of the wobble base on the Pivot. It features the same EVA foam seat cushion and fiberglass reinforced seat pan. The cushion is concave and meant to cradle your bottom. The height adjustment is done with a steel cylinder.

The Mobis II features a fiberglass-reinforced, round, nylon base. The base has a strong steel mounting plate that connects the cylinder to the base. The bottom of the base has a rubber rim and rubber pads to hold it firmly in place. The base remains stable at all heights. The seat features a built-in handle making the product very easy to move to a new location or out of the way. There is a joint where the cylinder connects to the base which allows the Mobis II to swivel in all directions. It has a wide range of movement and allows for a variety of perched positions as well as full upright leaning.

The seat is tilted slightly forward to help promote an open leg angle but the tilt range will not allow you to sit on top of the seat when leaning like the Pivot allows. You will need to use the front edge of the seat.

What we didn’t like

Unfortunately, the height adjustment range is not quite large enough to allow for a normal sitting position. The other main drawback will be the stiffness of the seat. Some people will be turned off by the stiff seat cushion on the Mobis II.

. HealthPostures Stance Angle – 74/100 Rating

Stance Angle Price: $1,750.00 (Buy on Amazon)
Read Full Stance Angle Review >>#9 standing desk chair healthpostures stance angle 5100

Stance Angle Pros and Cons

Pros:

Made in USA
Comfortable seat
Good adjustability
Has sitting mobility
Built-In Footrest
Good option for long hours

Cons:

Large footprint
Not portable
Arms may be uncomfortable for people under 6’0”
Not a good option for people over 6’3”

Stance Angle Summary

What we liked

The Stance Angle is the only chair on this list that is like a normal office chair, with the ability to also be a standing chair. It is made in the USA with nice components and quality craftsmanship. It features a large seat and backrest that has thick, soft padding. The Stance Angle has a double adjustment system that lets you adjust the height and angle of the seat, separately.

The chair also features an adjustable knee pad that features the same comfortable foam as the seat. The combination of the tilting seat, along with the knee pads, lets you sit in a wide range of positions. You can sit like a normal office chair with your knees, hips and elbows at 90°. You sit in a kneeling position at various angles. You an also sit in a fully upright position by leaning against the seat and backrest when they are in an almost vertical position.

What we didn’t like

There are a few concerns with the Stance Angle. The first is that the chair has a very large footprint, so it takes up a lot of space. The large footprint will not allow the chair to work at a desk that is 24” deep if the desk has a cross support or is against a wall. Since the chair is so large, it is not a good option to use in multiple work areas.

The next concern is that the armrests are wider than most office chairs with arms. This made them uncomfortable because my elbows were far away from my body. The arms also made it difficult to type at standing height because they do not go low enough to be useful or out of the way.

. Focal Mobis I – 71/100 Rating

Mobis Price: $405.99
Read Full Focal Mobis I Standing Desk Chair Review >>#11 standing desk chair focal mobis

Mobis Pros and Cons

Pros:

Strong warranty
Good range of motion
Built-in seat handle for carrying
Adjusts high enough for tall people
Very stable at all heights

Cons:

Seat has almost no padding
Poor sitting mobility
Not comfortable for long hours

Focal Mobis Summary

What we liked

The Focal Mobis I is another product from Focal and designed by Martin Keen. It is almost identical to the Mobis II. The differences between the two products are going to be the height adjustment range, the seat cushions used and the handle design.

The Mobis’ range of adjustment is almost the same as the Mobis II but it starts out a bit shorter. The Mobis has a range of 25” – 35” while the Mobis II has a range of 28 ½” to 37 ¾”. The seat cushions are made of the same EVA foam but the foam on the Mobis is about .5” thick compared to 1.5” on the Mobis II. There is a noticeable difference in the amount of padding that the Mobis II provides over the Mobis.

The final difference is the handles found on the seats that allow you to easily move the chairs. The handle on the Mobis goes all the way through the foam. Since the foam is thicker on the Mobis II, the handle does not go all the way through the foam. Instead, there is an indentation in the foam to help you grab it easier. The Mobis is easier to grab and move to a new location. Aside from these changes, the Mobis is the same product as the Mobis II, featured previously on this list.

What we didn’t like

The biggest draw back is the lack of padding for the seat.

. aeris GmbH Muvman – 69/100 Rating

Muvman Price: $498.00 (Buy on Amazon)
Read Full aeris GmbH Muvman Standing Stool Review >>#12 standing desk chairaeris muvman

Muvman Pros and Cons

Pros:

Good build quality & aesthetics
Wide adjustment range
Great mobility
Strong warranty for US customers
Good range of motion
Very stable at all heights
No assembly required

Cons:

Uncomfortable seat
Poor sitting mobility
Not comfortable for long hours

aeris GmbH Muvman Summary

What we liked

The Muvman by aeris GmbH is the original standing chair to use its type of design. It was developed in 2006 by Henner Jahns, the same designer who made the Swopper. It is the recipient of numerous industry awards including the Red Dot Award and Best of Neocon Award. You will notice that a lot of competing products have done their best to copy the design and functionality of the Muvman.

The Muvman is made in Germany with some of the highest quality parts I have seen among the standing chair category. The Muvman features a round, glass-fiber reinforced polymid base with a non-slip rubber rim. The base is stable at all heights. The steel cylinder has a massive 13” adjustment range with an extended height option which gives you an additional 3”. It is anchored to the base with a strong steel mounting plate. One of the best things going for the Muvman is that its height adjustment range is large enough to allow for a normal sitting position, perching or leaning.

The cylinder is tilted forward 4° to create a better seat angle for perching and leaning positions. The cylinder tilts from a joint in the base plate allowing for 360° of movement. The tension still allows for a wide range of motion and it is very smooth. The seat pan is made from glass reinforced polymid and features a convex shape with a built-in handle on the back for easy carrying. The seat upholstery is made of microfiber and is soft to the touch.

What we didn’t like

The biggest problem with the Muvman is that the seat is small and the edges are hard. The convex shape is also something that makes the sitting experience different than most chairs. Overall, these factors can make the seat uncomfortable for some people.

The Breakroom Blog is different from most review sites because we order the products we review and feature on our lists. This allows us to provide a large number of detailed pictures and first-hand information on the products. Most review sites base their reviews on manufacturer specifications and user feedback made publicly available from sites like Amazon. This is not very reliable for providing the most accurate information because you don’t truly know how a product is going to perform until you use it. You need to be able to touch it, test it and experience it for extended periods before you can make a reliable review for it. There have been products that I thought would be really great based on their specs but ended up being subpar. On the flip side, I have been really surprised by the quality of products that I had low expectations for.

We’ve gone through the entire buying and testing process for you. Our goal is to provide you with honest feedback to base your buying decision on. All of the products on this list have been tested extensively in our office. We have completed any required installation and used the products in the varying positions they allow for. Some products on this list are sold by us on BTOD.com and some are not. You will find that we provide the positives and negatives on all of the products so that you know what to expect with each chair.

What is a standing chair?

I know “standing chair” sounds like an oxymoron but it is the best way to describe them. Normal desk chairs do not go high enough to use with a standing desk, drafting chairs do not allow you to have your feet on the ground and neither of them allow for movement. A different style of product needed to be developed. Standing chairs were the answer. They have a minimalistic design with no arms or backrests. They have much taller height adjustment ranges than standard office chairs, while also having the ability to tilt forward so that you can use the chair in a perched or leaning position. This allows you to be more active while working.

Most standing chairs are designed to have you sit on the front portion of the seat to allow your hips to open. Instead of sitting all the way back on the seat with your knees at 90°, you stay more upright with your legs closer to a 135° angle. There are typically two terms used to describe the posture used on a standing chair, leaning and perching. Leaning refers to an almost fully upright position. Perching refers to positions that allow for more knee bend than fully upright leaning. Both positions are meant to provide a bit of support to reduce tension on your legs, feet and back from standing.

While spending so much time testing all of these products, I have learned a lot. With such a wide variety of chairs suddenly available in our office, everyone wanted to try them out. This allowed me to get a number of different opinions on a lot of the chairs. Here are my biggest takeaways from my time with standing chairs.



1. Transition period can be tough

Getting acclimated to a standing chair was something that almost everyone in the office had a tough time with. It is such a different style of sitting from what most people are used to that it can be both uncomfortable and awkward. Muscles are being used differently which can cause soreness simply because your body isn’t used to the new posture. Sitting on the front edge of the seat is also something that takes getting used to. I experienced numbness within the first 20-30 minutes when I first started using them in a perched position. I also noticed some initial soreness in my shins and the soles of my feet. After a couple weeks, the initial soreness faded away as I got more and more used to the new style of sitting.

2. Best suited as a complimentary chair

Even after getting used to a standing chair, I do not think they are a good replacement for your normal office chair. Two hours is about the maximum that I can sit in any of them at a time. My butt is usually starting to get numb and I start to miss my normal ergonomic office chair. It is hard to keep good posture for that long without any armrests or a backrest to help you out. I would find myself slouching which was a sign to switch it up. The good thing is that all of the products on this list are easy to move and can be stored away without taking up much space. This makes it easier to have a second chair to allow you to incorporate some more movement into your workday. I can also see them being a nice option for conference rooms, computer labs or collaborative spaces.

3. It feels good to be active

Mixing in the standing chairs throughout my workday has been beneficial to me. It can help to break up the day when performing monotonous tasks. The seating itself allows you to be active while working. The nature of chairs has also made me more willing to get up out of my chair and walk around to do tasks that I may otherwise have put off to a later time in my normal chair. I am not sure why that is. Maybe it is not feeling locked into my chair with a back and arms. Or, maybe it is because I am already halfway to standing anyway. I am not sure but I move around the office much more when using a standing chair. Overall, they make me feel like I have more energy and help to keep me more alert if I am starting to feel tired. I also notice how much better they make my back feel. The 135° angle helps to stretch my lower back and the movement helps to keep other areas loose as well.

4. Footrest helps a lot

I found my footrest to be a fantastic compliment to almost every product on this list. The leg angle that many standing chairs produce puts a lot more weight on your feet than a normal sitting position. When my feet were flat on the ground, I could feel the weight pushing the soles of my feet forward and it felt like I was keeping myself from sliding off the chair. I was using the front of my feet to support the majority of the weight in this position. Adding a footrest allowed me to put my feet more in line with my legs so that the weight was distributed in a straight line down to my heels. This was a much more comfortable position and allowed me to use the standing chairs for longer periods of time.

After using all of the products over an extended period of time, we decided that there were six categories that would best represent the characteristics that are most important on a standing chair. While there are certainly a number of other things to consider when buying a standing chair, we felt that this was a well-rounded set of factors to provide a good ranking system. Each category is weighted the same in the calculation of the overall score. Below is a brief description of each category used to rank these sit stand chairs.

1. Build Quality

The build quality of the item will be a reflection of the components used and the aesthetics of the product. Products with higher quality components like cylinders and fabrics will score higher than products with lesser quality parts. It is also important to a lot of buyers to have a standing chair that looks good. Products that have focused on making an attractive design will score higher than products that don’t.

2. Warranty

The warranty is important because it gives you a guaranteed amount of time that you will have a working standing chair. This helps to give you peace of mind knowing you will have a chair for a set period of time. It also helps you to budget for future purchases based on the amount of warranty time you have. Another thing to think about with a warranty is that it is a direct reflection of the manufacturer’s confidence in their product. Longer warranties are typically provided on higher quality products while lower end products will have short warranties or no warranties at all.

3. Portability

This category is used to show how easy it is to move a chair to a new location or place it into storage. Lightweight products with built-in handles that allow you to move them with one hand will have the highest scores. Heavy products that take up more space and require two hands to move will have the lowest scores.

4. Seat Comfort

The seats on standing chairs are much different than the seats you will find on normal office chairs. They are smaller, have little to no padding and usually have some type of pronounced shape. The most typical shapes are: convex with a rounded seat, concave to form to your bottom or saddle seat. The most important takeaway is that they will not be the same experience that you are used to with a normal chair. The seat comfort category is a score based on the level of support the seat provides and the amount of time the seat will allow you to sit before feeling numbness or discomfort.

5. Range of Motion

The category we use to measure how active you can be while sitting is range of motion. There are many different types of motion that active chairs can produce. Some chairs wobble, others tilt and some bounce. The more motion that a chair is capable of means the more active you can be while working. The chairs with the highest scores will be the models that promote the most activity.

6. Adjustability

Standing chairs have a very limited number of adjustments but there can still be a noticeable difference in the adjustability between them. A chair’s adjustability score will be determined by the number of adjustments a chair has and the range that those adjustments provide. A wider adjustment range means that a chair will fit more people so it deserves a higher score. Chairs that allow people to use them in numerous positions will have the highest score. For instance, the Muvman has a high adjustability score even though it has a single adjustment because it can be used sitting, perched or leaning.

Standing chairs are a cool new emerging product category. I really like the idea behind incorporating different seating and standing postures throughout the day. These chairs are a great addition to a standing desk to help alleviate stress and soreness caused by standing for prolonged hours. I do think it is important to limit expectations with standing chairs though. They are not going to be a good replacement for a chair that is used for 8-12 hours a day. The firm seats, lack of armrests and lack of backrests make it very difficult to use standing chairs for more than a couple hours at a time.

I think that these chairs are best suited as a secondary option for people that are sitting or standing for a prolonged period of time. I also think they are great for people that are up and out of their desks a lot. The market is growing rapidly and there are quite a few options to choose from now. Sometimes it can get confusing to sort through all of the options. This list should be a good starting point in your hunt for a new standing chair.
