With a degree in Kinesiology specializing in sports medicine, CoreChair CEO and Founder Patrick Harrison was inspired by the widespread prevalence of back pain, the negative effects of sedentary lifestyles to create this research-backed, evidence-based active sitting design. The CoreChair's main distinguishing feature is the low back cushion that supports the pelvis, while allowing for 14 degree movement. Without restricting, as tall chair backs do, it encourages active posture and alignment. It inspires playful movement that stimulates blood flow, mobilizes the joints, and strengthens core muscles as well as hydrating the vertebral discs.
