Ergonomic Stools

Ergonomic stools are perfect for the office if you’ve ever experienced a lack of energy, poor posture, or if you work in a collaborative work environment. Ergonomic stools encourage active sitting and improve your posture, while also allowing you to move around the office freely with a lightweight and easy-to-move device. Many of our stools are designed to mimic the ‘saddle’ position because of the posture support this position can provide. If you regularly have team members join you at your desk to discuss projects, then an ergonomic stool could be what you need to improve the health and wellbeing in the office.

If you want to try before you buy, feel free to come and test some ergonomic office stools at our Perth showroom. You can also speak to one of our experts to help you with your decision. Otherwise, shop online and enjoy the convenience of delivery to anywhere in Australia. 

Ergonomic Office Stools FAQs

What are some features of an ergonomic stool?

When choosing the right ergonomic stool for your home or office, there are a few key features that you should look out for:

Weighted Base

You want to ensure your ergonomic stool has a strong base so it doesn’t slide around while you’re trying to work.

Height Adjustable

Make sure your stool can work in a variety of heights to provide you with as much flexibility in the workplace as possible.

Easy to Move

You want to be able to move quickly around the office. Ergonomic stools are great for quickly moving to a co-workers desk to collaborate, or to bring into a work meeting.

How Do You Turn a Regular Desk into a Standing Desk?

The Ergotron Workfit Corner Sit Stand Desk Converter uses a gas strut which lets you quickly change from sitting to standing. Whereas, the Encore Electric Sit Stand Desk Converter uses a hidden motor to lower and raise the desk to suit your height requirement. Sit stand desk converters don’t require any physical exertion to change the height of the desk, making it the perfect device suitable for just about anyone who requires more comfort in the workplace.

Are saddle stools good for your back?

Saddle stools have been ergonomically designed to improve your posture, and eliminate back pain. A saddle stool, or saddle seat, helps to position your back in an upright position, while your thighs rest in a downwards position. This positioning assists your lower back to remain in a neutral position and helps your spine rest in the ideal “S” position. Saddle stools are ideal for workers who have experienced lower back pain from lack of active sitting during long office hours.

What can saddle stools be used for?

Saddle stools can be used for a variety of purposes;

Office work

As we continue to spend more and more time sitting at our computers than ever before, the need for proper ergonomic support has never been greater. Saddle stools are suitable for any office environment. The portable and lightweight design makes them great for moving around the office with ease - ideal for collaborative work settings. If you work with a sit/stand desk the Safco Mobis Perching/Balance Stool can be raised or lowered with ease to match the height of your desk.


Saddle stools provide support for workers in science labs and hospitals where workers are on their feet for large parts of the day, but require raised seating at times. The Symphony Split Seat Saddle has been specifically designed for use in health industries and laboratories for doctors and nurses. The stool allows for both flexibility and support so the user can sit closer to their patients while keeping their body in an upright, ergonomic position at all times.

Security work

Ergonomic Saddle Stools are also ideal for security work. Security guards need to be quick on their feet, but standing up all day in the same spot can lead to back and foot pain. Saddle stools can provide correct lumbar support for security guards, while also giving them the option to sit at a raised height for a fast response while working.

What is active sitting?

Active sitting, otherwise called dynamic sitting, is an ergonomic feature that allows the user to keep their core muscles engaged while sitting down. Sit Stand Balance Stools allow for dynamic seating and better posture as the user is leaning on the stool at an angle, while still supporting their own weight. This means you are keeping your core and leg muscles active (rather than slumping into your chair!), while still being able to move freely. These stools are a great option to use with sit stand desks.
