The Perfect Combination of Sitting and Standing – a New Style of Work Posture

It is no secret that changing our posture throughout the day is essential to our wellbeing in the office.What’s more, adapting a posture that is appropriate for the task at hand helps relieve stress placed upon the body.Okamura recommends five postures for increased office productivity and efficiency. Among them is the perching posture, a perfect combination of standing and sitting, which is suitable for a standing meeting or a touchdown. Our perching stool, repiroue was brought to life with the intention of making the perching posture more accessible in the office environment.

Product Story

    Reducing stress on your body for a comfortable work posture

    Perching posture does not apply extra pressure on the gluteal muscles and minimizes the stress placed on the intervertebral discs. Supporting the body from 3-points (both feet and the hip bone) stabilizes the pelvis. Furthermore, tilting the seat forward brings the pelvic angle close to that of standing position, meaning the S curve of the spine is almost the same as when standing, thus reducing pressure to the lower back. repiroue distributes body weight between the feet and the buttocks so that the legs are released from solely sustaining the weight.
