LeanRite usability testers ranging in height from under 5'0" to 6'5" tall reported that they were able to comfortably use our standing desk chair. The recommended weight tolerance for sitting is 270 pounds.
People of shorter stature may benefit from adding a foam footrest when in the fully seated position. We recommend a specific non-slip model that we now offer in our online store.

Research shows that seat-backs are unnecessary and may even be harmful to our back muscles. Seat-backs are modern "conveniences" that force our anatomy into unnatural positions while purporting to correct flaws intrinsic to our bodies. The biggest benefit of not having a seat-back is a user's ability to sit a little higher than usual, which increases our hip angles. A more open hip angle activates core muscles and helps us keep more of a natural curve in our spine.
Nope! The LeanRite is stabilized by your own bodyweight. The base dimensions are designed so the center of gravity keeps the LeanRite stable. When operated as recommended in our usage guide, it is nearly impossible to tip over.
