The Wave Stool will give you these benefits - as well as a healthier back

Lots of footroom on Wave Stool

Put your feet wherever you like

The ‘Vee’ shape rockers leave the floor around your feet clear, so you can move them or stand without chair legs or castors catching your heels.

If you feel restless (or drowsy!) you can rock or move in lots of healthy ways.


A seat that can move

As well as helping you sit upright for a healthy back (as explained on the Sit Well page) the rocking of the seat makes fine adjustment for your height. The seat stays parallel to your thighs and doesn’t exert too much pressure at the front - a common cause of slumping. (be sure to read page 6 before choosing the right height for you).

You can easily sit still, or rock whenever you wish. The gentle rocking action is likely to help circulation in your legs and lessen any stiffening of knees and hips.

The Alexander Technique influence has resulted in a design with more choice of position and freedom of movement than almost any other seat


Standing up from Wave Stool

Stand up with ease

Rock forward onto your feet and stand in one flowing movement. The transfer of weight from seat to feet is smoother than on a fixed seat. It is also just that little bit kinder to your knees and hips.

Many Alexander Technique teachers love to use the Wave Stool in their teaching. They find it helps pupils discover how easy a movement this can become (and if they buy their own it reminds and helps them to put the teaching into practice).


The rockers slide

Easily on carpet or wood floors so you can swivel your stool (although not quite as easily as a swivel chair, and not on vinyl floors)

As there is no back you can slide the stool out of the way (try using your foot) right under a desk or table when not in use.


Reaching forward from Wave Stool

Reach things easily

When you lean forward or back the Wave Stool moves with you.

“…leaning backwards and forwards …spinning the stool easily …using lots of pressure. All the things I used to groan at …my back now feels great, and my posture’s natural all the time.” John Langley, Ocarina Maker


Let your legs relax

The Wave Stool’s large round seat encourages your legs to relax outwards a little - naturally (the corners of some seats can interfere with this).


Carrying a Wave Stool

Easy to carry

It is smaller and lighter than a chair. Rest the horizontal rail on your hip and hug stool to you with one hand on the front leg, so it takes up less room in doorways.


Some of these benefits are quite subtle, but over long periods of sitting they do add up, and make a difference to how you feel.
