The LOTAH Sit-Stand Comfort Seat from Mey Chair Systems is well-suited to users who need to work as close as possible to the work surface of an elevated workstation, particularly those built on top of base cabinets or shelves. The LOTAH features a large plush saddle designed to be straddled, rather than leaned against. While keeping the torso in an ergonomically desirable upright orientation, the straddle posture positions the heels behind the bend of the knees, rather than extended forward of the knees as they would be on a leaning stool. (See the Tulean Sit-Stand Comfort Leaning Stool, also by Mey Chair Systems, for an illustration of this latter position.) This posture allows the user to move in much closer to flat-fronted work surfaces than might otherwise be possible. As a result, the LOTAH Sit-Stand Comfort Seat helps to reduce the risk of overreach injuries to the muscles of the shoulders and back, and the risk of injury to the muscles of the sides and mid-section caused by sitting sideways along the base of the workstation and twisting at the waist to get close enough to its surface. The LOTAH Sit-Stand Comfort Seat also helps to reduce the load borne by the feet and legs for those who work at elevated workstations by transferring the majority of the user's weight to the seat. As a result the user experiences less overall fatigue and a greater ability to maintain focus and concentration.
Built on a heavy tubular steel base with a gas spring that enables a height adjustment range of 24.8" to 31.5", and with a seat that has 15° of tilt range and 3" of cushioning, the LOTAH Sit-Stand Comfort Seat offers individualized comfort and long-term durability.
