The Renewal of Healthy Sitting
The Soul Seat was designed to address the root cause of most back pain at work. If we were all in ideal health, we would prefer to sit on the floor as our pelvis was brilliantly designed to do. This would reduce humanity's carbon load on the environment due to the fewer pieces of furniture needed to be produced, maintained, shipped and moved from home to home, office to office, and finally to the landfill. You may have noticed that young people today prefer the floor for studying and staying connected on their laptops, smartphones, and tablets. As more and more knowledge work migrates to the information cloud, it will be easier to continue choosing to work either standing up or situated comfortably on the floor or a riser of some sort.
The Soul Seat fits into this progression toward healthier work. The Soul Seat helps knowledge workers make the transition to a pelvis flexible and strong enough to maintain focused work wherever their work takes them. Better quality of life at work is designed into each Soul Seat. By stretching and strengthening while you work, the challenges of balancing work, family and caring for yourself become simpler. You tap into pockets of energy throughout the day, breathing, stretching, and knowing you are caring for your body.
