ERGONOMIC FUNCTIONS a. LiveBack® The Leap® chair's back changes shape to support the entire spine. This can reduce the chance of lower back sag and a hunched posture, which may weaken disc walls, stress back ligaments and cause deterioration of the spine. b. Thermal Comfort Thanks to slats in both its back and seat, and the special foam it uses, the Leap® chair offers excellent "breathability". It effectively controls a balance of heat and moisture so you stay comfortable. c. Adjustable Seat D People don't fit neatly into average body sizes. Leg and torso lengths can vary independent of a person's overall height. Adjustable seat D accommodates different body shapes for long-term comfort. d. Lower Back Firmness Lower back firmness control enables you to set a constant amount of firmness to help maintain your lower spine's natural curve. e. Height, D, W, and Pivot Arms Arms telescope in and out, move forward and back, pivot and adjust up and down so you can find a natural position that comfortably supports the wrists, forearms, shoulders and neck. f. Natural Glide System™ As you recline, the seat glides forward so you can recline without leaving your Vision and Reach Zone, so you stay oriented to your work. This encourages more varied postures so there's less static load on the spine. g. Flexible Seat Edge When you recline or lean forward, the seat edge flexes to relieve pressure on the back of the legs. h. Upper Back Force Upper back force control enables you to set the amount of "push back" that you desire as you recline, regardless of body size. So you'll receive just the right amount of recline support.

So far so good. Stool has good adjust-ability, well built. No major negatives. However if I could change anything I would like it to have the ability to go 2'' lower. I know this puts the stool at a chair height but I sit at different heights during the day. I have found it helps my back. I knew when I purchased the stool it did not go as low as a chair so this is more of a wish than a criticism. Having a web type seat verse fabric would be a bit more comfortable. Overall a very good stool!
