As research continues to show that being stationary for several hours a day has a negative effect on health, furniture pieces such as the 'Sprang' workout chair aim to help people become more active in the office.

The bright orange ergonomic chair was designed to strengthen the user's back and core. The chair features a standard seat and back rest, but the seat is supported by an exercise ball that is held to the chair with bungee cords. The makers of this workout chair say that it "encourages movement, provides support, activates the core, increases flexibility and stimulates circulation."

This workout chair provides a playful method of staying active at work that is a more creative solution than standing at a desk.
