The Steelcase Leap Chair is Incredible Ergonomic Task Seating
The Steelcase Leap chair is one of the world’s most ergonomically sound office chairs. Some would compare it to the Herman Miller Aeron, but we think it deserves more consideration. The Leap chair moves with you, the back of the seat bends to your back, the arms move with your body and arms. It's as if you sitting in a mechanical marvel that anticipates your every move. It's because of this that the leap chair has become one of the most highly desirable office chairs in the world.
Ergonomic features of the Leap chair include:
The Leap chair's back rest adapts its shape to support your entire spine. This greatly reduces the risk of lower back sag and poor posture, which can weaken disc walls of the spine, stress back ligaments and cause deterioration of the spine.
Thanks to slats or openings in both its back support and seat pan, plus the special foam that it utilizes, the Leap chair offers superb "breathability". It effectively controls a balance of heat and moisture so that you stay comfortable and able to stay in your seat for longer periods.
Adjustable Seat Depth
People come in all sizes. The adjustable seat depth accommodates different torso heights and leg lengths, for people of all sizes.
Lower Back Firmness
The lower back firmness or stiffness control allows you to set a constant amount of firmness / stiffness to help maintain your lumbar's natural position.
Height, Depth, Width, and Pivot Arms
The Leap chairs arms telescope in and out, move forward and back, pivot and adjust up and down so you can find a neutral position that effectively supports your wrists, forearms, shoulders and neck.
Natural Glide System
As you recline, the seat moves effortlessly forward allowing you to recline without leaving the reach of computer, so you stay in a position of workablilty. This promotes more varied postures so there's less static movement on your spine.
Flexible Seat Edge
Whenever you recline or move forward, the edge of the seat flexes to relieve pressure on the back of your legs.
Upper Back Force
Upper back force control enables you to set the amount of resistance on the chair as it reclines. This is useful to accommodate individuals from 100 lbs to 300 lbs. The chair can move with all sizes of people.
To truly appreciate these features outlined we strongly suggest you sit in a Leap chair for yourself. Another great feature besides ergonomics is the Leap chair's ability to hold its value.
