The Ultimate Standing Chair that encourages us to adopt and to sustain an ergonomic working position. The chair supports our body comfortably while it is in standing position. With the contour, it encourages being something akin to the standing meditation pose seen in yoga. The body of the human is supported in three ways: the seat that takes the pressure off the legs, the pressure on the knee is relieved by knee guard, and feet are kept in an angled position by a raised platform. Thus, with these combinations, it surely will help to distribute body weight evenly. The standing chair is portable. There are some options available terms of materials used for the frame, which can be made from solid oak, carbon fibre or welded steel. Both feature a knee pad or guard made from high density foam and a comfortable seat. After some research, we have found that lecturers and teachers often face difficulties standing too long that will cause pain in the back. This will interrupt and slows down the flow of the teaching. In the long term, it might affect the posture and even worst will end up in prolonged back pain. The standing chair is a good solution to avoid these consequences. However, in the current market, the standing chair focuses primarily in the manufacturing based environment such as workshop, warehouse, and factory. They are also often very expensive due to the aforementioned characteristics. Ultimate Standing Chair addresses this issue as our version is specifically made to be used in the teaching and learning environment with a fairly manageable size, proper aesthetic and affordable cost. In addition, after a thorough research of all the competing solutions in the market today that is similar to Ultimate Standing Chair, we found that our product strikes the best balance in cost, size, and user-friendliness which makes it more accessible for a whole range of customers including normal everyday office workers, surgeons in operation theaters and hobbyists
