Ergonomic seat – Posturite ONGO

Ergonomic solutions provider Posturite says the impressive German-designed and built ONGO seat actively encourages movement while sitting, which, in turn, helps prevent a build-up of tension, strengthen back muscles and improve posture.

The company, which is the sole UK distributor for the seat, says ONGO features a unique ball-track device built into its convex base, which enables the stool to follow every movement the sitter makes and provides audible feedback every time the sitting position is altered, thus making it an innovative and fun piece of fitness equipment for the office or home. Certain exercises, such as circling the hips, will make the ball rotate full circle around the track, and it’s possible to incorporate specific and effective workouts into the daily routine. Interchangeable balls – steel, glass or rubber – vary the level of difficulty for the exercises.

Ian Fletcher-Price, Posturite’s CEO, said: “It’s an unfortunate fact of modern life that lots of us spend much of our time in a seated position, even though the human body is made for movement. The ONGO seat strikes a balance between these apparently conflicting needs.”

The ONGO seat is height-adjustable and available in a range of colours. More details are at
