kneeling chair(redirected from Balans chair)
An ergonomically designed chair in which most of the body weight is supported on the buttocks, but some of it is borne on the knees and shins. It creates a greater angle between the thigh and torso than a regular sitting chair to more closely approximate standing and promote maintenance of the lumbar lordosis. It is designed to alleviate or prevent low back pain.
