The discomfort of sitting

Many of us who spend most part of our day sitting in an office chair KNOW the pain of trying to get into a comfortable position.

We shift positions from slouching to bolt upright - and then to right leg crossed over left, to the reverse, to legs uncrossed entirely.

Sometimes, all we want to do is pull our legs up and sit cross-legged like a child, but our narrow, armrest-laden office chair just won't allow it. Until now.

The chair includes some remarkable features

Unlike our standard office chair, this unique piece of furniture features an adjustable raised perch, and below that a there's a lower platform on which you can fold or cross your legs on, or have one leg hanging off, and one tucked back and still maintain optimum blood flow, and you can also detach the legs of the chair, so you can place the seat directly on the floor.

According to the company, this seat helps to improve posture because it “tilts the pelvis forward, opens the hips, and lets the spine align to a comfortable, neutral position”.

“Designer and founder, Pack Matthews, was frustrated with how conventional ergonomic chairs left him in pain and offered no options for changing position while working at the computer,” the company’s website reads. “Collaborating with friends, a physical therapist, yoga instructors, fine woodworkers, and industrial engineers, Pack developed Health by Design’s first product, the Soul Seat.”

If you're a yoga enthusiast, this might be the perfect chair for you!

Matthews came up with the Soul Seat’s design while trying out yoga and with his new soul seat allows he's more comfortable and able to achieve yoga positions he'd been far off reaching before.

 “With this product, Pack’s dream of never needing a conventional chair again became a reality. Now he starts his the day on his yoga mat, switching to work on the computer, and ending the day stretching on the yoga mat before bed without ever having to use a conventional chair.”

According to Matthews his target audience constituted mainly of yogis and Malaysians who love to Bersila (sit cross-legged).And the product is a big hit with Malaysians.

A Malaysian artist, AzyanDraws posted a picture of Soul Seat on her Twitter handle, and the post went viral! Apparently, the Malaysians LOVED the unique designer chair.
