Three years ago, we checked out the Locus, an expensive standing desk with a stool. Wayne Yeager’s LeanChair is another alternative to standing desks. Instead of letting you rest on your butt, it has a backrest and a footrest, allowing you to lean back while standing.
The LeanChair is tilted at just the right angle so you can still see straight ahead while relieving your legs of about 25% of your weight. It does put some of the load on your knees, so it won’t be an optimal solution for everyone.
The half-chair also comes with a rubber-coated desk on a swing arm, so you can either use it with a standing desk or on its own if you don’t need a lot of space to work.
Pledge at least $245 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive a LeanChair as a reward.
