The rounded bottom of the Benesit makes you train your balance. The chair inspires movement and is fun to sit on. It discourages sitting still in the same position for long periods of time.

BeneSit straightens the back and activates core muscles via biomechanical principles. The chair is a good tool in the fight against back pain associated with sedentary work.

the office chair is a killer

Spending most of the day sitting inactively is likely to lead to back pain in the long term.


Biomechanical principles allow you to straighten your back and activate your muscles when sitting on a BeneSit chair. When you sit with an open angle at the hip, your back will become straighter. When you make massaging movements on the chair, you will tense up your core and thereby strengthen your back.


When you sit down on an ordinary office chair with your legs perpendicular to your body, your body will automatically collapse in the lower lumbar region, along the shoulder blades and in the neck. The lumbar vertebrae (discs) become overloaded, creating great tension in the back, neck, shoulders and head. This can lead to headaches, neck-, shoulder- and lower back pain, back pain, disc herniation and osteoarthritis.”
