Put simply, our belief is that humans were not meant to sit for prolonged periods. We have stood and walked upright for over 1.5 million years and for the last 10 thousand or so most societies have been centred on farming. It's only over the last 100 years or so that sitting has become common at work and it's only in the last 15 years or so that we've been sitting for increasingly long periods in front of computers. Watch the video to see more on the science behind the FreedMan Chair.
Sitting posture with lumbar support and raised seat.
The seat pan of the FreedMan Chair articulates on a specially made stainless steel ball, which allows a controlled, rising and lowering of each side of the seat.
This allows the seat to match any pelvic height imbalance that the sitter has when standing and therefore maintains their side-to-side spinal curves.

I got back from a mammoth three-week trip in China last weekend and it’s been a busy week getting things at this end sorted out.
Apologies for not updating you sooner, but I’ve been waiting to hear confirmation from the factory on the production and can now confirm that one container left for the UK last week, another for the UK will be loaded this Wednesday. The two containers for the US shipment have been…Read More »

I’ve been busy getting sorted for our trip to China to oversee the final production of your chairs. The first batch of chairs arrive at the UK port on 16th of January (despite the ship crashing-seriously!), will be in customs for 5 days and then will be coming out to the first lucky people 2-4 days after that. So before the end of January.
The next batch should be ready for checking (by myself and Dean, our lead engineer) this Tuesday 13th Jan and hopefully ready for shipping Friday or Monday and will be at their destinations approximately 5 weeks after that.Read More »

That’s right we have chairs on their way to us in the UK! I know it seems like it’s taken an age (I certainly feel about ten years older…) but it’s a real landmark to finally have some consumer-ready chairs on their way. This is a small batch of 150 and they were sent to the port a week ago. Since then we’ve cleared the decks at our production line, had many discussions over improving production and quality-checking processes, updated work instructions, etc, etc. We are now continuing with the follow-on production.Read More »

How does sitting for an extended period compare to being an astronaut? Well this is one of the questions answered by this recent article from the UK’s National Health Service.
Many adults in the UK spend more than seven hours a day sitting or lying, and this typically increases with age to 10 hours or more.Read More »

We know sitting too much is bad, and most of us intuitively feel a little guilty after a long TV binge, but what exactly goes wrong in our bodies when we park ourselves for nearly eight hours per day, the average for a U.S. adult? Many things, say four experts, who detailed a chain of problems from head to toe. An informative infographic from…Read More »
