Varier Variable Balans Chair : The Original outstanding chair

Here is my impartial review. From a long term back sufferer. I received the varier balans chair on 14. 16 after being a long term chronic back sufferer and will be updating this review over time and will adjust the rating based on my own personal experiences of the chair. About mei am 5′ 11′ with a 31cm inside leg and weigh 208lbsi am a long term back sufferer and in september had my 3rd back operation. I am still off work and unable to sit for any period of time using a standard seat for horrible lower back and leg pain. Initial thoughtsthe chair is very basic, light and extremely easy to assemble. My first reaction sitting was that the seat heat was further away from the knee rests than i imagined. This leads me to believe anyone around 6ft doesnt need to worry about being too tall.

A must for everybody that has any sort of back trouble. Its flexible but in a sturdy way so you can turn around, stretch over and bend and the chair seems to go with you.

I had a normal office chair and my back was always killing me. Here are the specifications for the Varier Variable Balans Chair:

  • Follows the natural body movement
  • Promotes natural, upright posture
  • Prevents tension in neck and shoulders
  • Strengthens core and abdominal muscles
  • Enhances deep breathing

The original outstanding chair. This is the classic balans chair which i have recommended to pupils and family since i got my first one in the ’80’s i believe. I was without one at my desk for a few months, and noticed the difference. Had to have exactly the same. And cheap imitations do not do the trick.

Original stokke kneeling chair – this goes together easily . Don’t be put off by the one star who ignored v simple instructions. Well made original ‘stokke’ varier kneeling chair. Incredibly easy to assemble following the excellent simple instructions and keeping the ‘front’ label on the centre bracket toward the front of the chair, not like the one star reviewer who put the ‘front’ toward the back and then complains about misalignment. Note the quality control is good, you even receive the supplier checklist where their quality controller has checked everything you need is present including the tools. I have worked on a stokke thatsit chair for many years, it’s excellent for my back which has a very worn l5s1 vertebra. This original variant is the lower end of the stokke varier range but is just as comfortable and costs a lot less money .

    I have a lower back injury and this seat is totally ace. Honestly the position you sit in is great hips forward and sloping. Plus the rocker instead of nightmare wheels is a godsend. Wish i had bought this product years ago. I can honestly say this has changed my life. I use it 4 days per week in home office yes sit on this for over seven hours moving my legs position to floor and then up. Find my self rocking on it all the time. Wish there was a fold down version so i could take it to clients offices.

    Fantastic item, but not too ideal for exceptionally tall people. This chair is fantastic and really does help keep a good posture. I do however wish that the knee/shin pads had an adjustable angle. I am quite tall and as such the top of the pad presses against my leg more than the bottom so it gets a tad uncomfortable after prolonged use. But i am 6’4″ so this shouldnt be an issue for most.

As a sprightly 70 year old with many joints beginning to ache i wondered if i was wasting my money but if it brought relief from daily low back pain it would be worth it. Well the answer is it is worth it and more. It took no time at all to get used to it. I love the fact that it rocks as well – jiggling about helps burn calories. There are several ways to sit so you can change your position as often as you wish – another good factor. It has not rubbed my shins at all, even with bare legs so all my worries have evaporated and i really do recommend this chair especially for us oldies. It is too good to keep for office work.

I tried lots of chairs out including ones that have the inflatable lumbar support. Every day i would go home with a painful back. Now i am using this kneeling chair i can honestly say i go home pain free every day. It’s worth every penny and really is very comfortable to use.

    I really enjoy using this chair. I don’t use it for long periods of time but i find it comfortable and a good change from other chairs.

      1. Great chair, takes time to get used to, helped my rsi. I have been using it every day for 3 months and i really love it. It is really comfortable and the rocking motion i find quite relaxing. I bought the chair because i liked the idea of a kneeling chair that promoted a healthy back – although i don;t have back problems i saw it as a long-term investment/preventative measure. It took me a long time to decide, because of the price but i now consider it good value. Although i don;t have back problems i do have rsi/carpal tunnel which in my case is an issue of nerves in my neck. The chair has significantly reduced the degree of discomfort i feel typing and other tasks. A couple of things to consider for potential buyers:my desk is 74cm high and i am 175cm tall.

    Good for backpain sufferers. Helps activate these unused back muscles. Yoiu have to ease into it, use few mins and build up gradually. Would highly recommend if you suffer from back pain.
