Blue ergoErgo Seat
Not good for sitting at length...
It was worth a shot, but this chair was NOT for me. If you're sitting for less than an hour at a time, or less, then it might be worth a shot...but not for an 8-hour office setting!!!

Loved it, at first...
When I first ran across the chair I was extremely happy with the modern design as well as the colors offered. A great addition to a dorm room, or home office, even as an accent piece for a living/ family room. Having reconstructive back surgery at 27 I work on my core a lot and love practical, attractive furniture that can assist me in my never ending "solid core" quest.
I had no problems with this chair at all and always engage my core before sitting in front of the computer. Unfortunately, my husband has not been so successful and after almost 60 days he has grown to loathe my "super cool office stool". I would recommend this chair to individuals much like myself , "the Core Quest" for life types. As well as any Modern Art fanatics, or just a savvy apartment or dorm dweller on a budget. Great product, great price, but my husband never grew to love this piece and has bruised his "Ego" several times which is not pleasant for either of us - once with hot coffee in hand, In closing I would like to state that I am a huge fan of almost every product "The Containerstore " offers, this chair is super cool - I believe you all will love it as well. Just remember it an abdominal strengthening tool as well as a computer chair.

Perfect for me!
I have been happily using the ErgoErgo for the past few months. It's such a great little stool for my low worktable. I have back problems with most low chairs and stools, but not with this one. I also love the bold color and fun design - and the fact that it is recyclable is good (although I hope to use it for years to come). This is the most affordable ergonomic stool I could find, aside from a yoga ball, which wouldn't fit in my studio. Just so you know, you can absolutely slouch or cross your legs when sitting on this stool - I've never 'slipped' off - the ergonomic benefit comes from how you utilize it.

This seat rocks! ... but it doesn't roll
I love this seat! I had heard of using an exercise ball behind your desk to help with posture, balance, and core, but I didn't have room for one and a ball seemed a little unstable. This seat fits perfectly, is easy to move around and once I got used to it, I'm barely aware of the constant small adjustments I make to keep myself sitting tall. You do need to be a litle careful if you lean over to pick something up off the floor, but it soon becomes second nature. Hint: If the seat starts slowly collapsing as you sit down (the floor model was like that), there is a rubber gasket on the bottom - make sure it is tight. I highly recommend this innovative seating and exercise solution.
