The NOSTND Sit-Stand Comfort Seat from Mey Chair Systems is designed to help users with larger builds work as close as possible to a raised workstation, particularly those built on top of base cabinets or shelves. Unlike the seats on a leaning seat or traditional stool, the large plush saddle on the NOSTND is designed to be straddled. Seated posture on the NOSTND is more upright, with the heels positioned behind the bend of the knees, rather than extended forward of the knees as they would be in a leaning position. (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 NOSTND 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. By supporting the majority of the user's weight on the seat, the NOSTND also helps to reduce the load generally borne by the feet and legs. Overall fatigue, and the risk of strain on the joints and tissues of the lower limbs can be greatly reduced.
Both the saddle style seat and the large back feature 3" cushioning; and both are height adjustable. The height of the seat can be adjusted between 23.25 and 28.75". The height adjustment range of the back is determined by the seat position. A handle and large rollers on the back glides enable the NOSTND to be easily moved as required. The NOSTND dual rectangular steel tube base is rated to support up to 440 pounds.
Larger users looking for a more traditional style of seat may be interested in considering the RSTMOR Sit-Stand Chair, also from Mey Chair Systems.
