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.

Apologies for the delayed update – I have some good and bad news… We came back from China with the factory going on a 5-day annual holiday and things were on track for them to ship the first batch of chairs between 22nd and 29th October. Unfortunately, on their return there was a problem with the over-molding process of the seat pads and we and they have been working 24/7 to get it sorted.Read More »

Just to let you know that our first production run is progressing really well and the quality of the chair is just getting better and better.
I wanted to give you an insight of what’s going into this…
There are at least 60 people working on it at the moment. The quality control people walk around brandishing vernier callipers and the guys assembling the components wear white gloves!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 »

WINSTON CHURCHILL knew it. Ernest Hemingway knew it. Leonardo da Vinci knew it. Every trendy office from Silicon Valley to Scandinavia now knows it too: there is virtue in working standing up. And not merely standing. The trendiest offices of all have treadmill desks, which encourage people to walk while working. It sounds like a fad. But it does have a basis in science.Read More »

An increasing number of experts are saying that sitting for long periods is the “new smoking” in terms of increasing our risk of death and disease – no matter how ergonomic your chair or how extensive your weekly exercise routine. This is because leg and back muscles become…Read More »
