There are two categories of office stools ergonomic office stools and side stools. A side stool is typically chair height. Most side stools are not height adjustable. They are lightweight and easy to move. Side stools are designed to be pull-up, collaborative seating. They are perfect for creative conversations in front of a single monitor. Ergonomic office stools are designed to sustain long periods of work. They are adjustable and ergonomically sound.
Ergonomic office stools are perfect for drafting tables, height-adjustable desks, and standing height conference tables. A good ergonomic office stool should have all the adjustment features of an office chair. The main difference between the two is the high-end height. When the chair is fully raised, the user’s feet will not touch the ground. This makes the footrest solution an important consideration. In this post, I will review five best-selling ergonomic office stools. But don’t worry I will also give a little love to my favorite side stools as well. Here we go.
