Abstract

A variable height therapeutic stool comprises a seat 1 attached to a height adjustable pole 2, e.g. a vacuum lift mechanism, which has a lower end mounted to the top of a coil spring 5. The coil spring 5 may be mounted to a seat base 4. This arrangement provides a variable height seat, which may rotate around the point of attachment 3 so making a therapeutic seat; good for rotating the hips and spine. The stool also encourages a good seating posture, where a user has to use most of their body and muscles to sit still to work, with their hips and upper body over their feet.
