Work comfortably all day... without sitting.

Prolonged sitting damages your health. And if you sit long enough, the damage may be irreversible.

But the common alternative - STANDING DESKS - can make your productivity plummet, because the discomfort of standing is such a huge distraction.

LeanChair lets you lean back and relax, with your body weight comfortably supported.

Now you can stay focused on your work... instead of your sore legs and aching back.

Hundreds of smart people have already switched to LeanChair® and it might be the solution you've been looking for.

Sitting kills you. But standing makes you wish you were dead!

We knew there had to be a better way to get work done. The answer is LEANING!

The Original Idea

After 5 or 6 prototypes, we put our leaning idea on Kickstarter and got $100,000 in pre-orders. We were even invited onto Shark Tank!

A 5 Year Obsession

But we weren't satisfied. We knew what LeanChair could be. So we spent 5 years and built over 100 prototypes to get it right.


Now, LeanChair is ready for YOU. It's super strong and amazingly comfortable. Assembled from high-quality materials in the USA.

"LeanChair combines the best parts of sitting AND the best parts of standing."

As a software developer, I spent 10-12 hours a day sitting in my fancy $1,000 "ergonomic" chair.

But one day - after years of this - my body hit its limit. I just couldn't sit anymore. Not one more minute!

I tried lots of different standing desks, but standing is surprisingly painful. And my constant weight-shifting and fidgeting - to deal with the pain - made it hard to concentrate. So I thought, "If I can't sit - and I can't stand - now what?"

As an experiment, I tried LEANING... and loved it! I found that it combines the best parts of sitting AND standing.

Five years and over 100 prototypes later, the "leaning workstation" has finally been perfected.

A Quick Look at LeanChair's Design

All of LeanChair's hardware features evolved over many years of testing.
Here are a few of the major components:

1. Adjustable headrest

The built-in headrest is completely adjustable and comfortably supports your head while you work.

2. Comfortable Cushions

LeanChair's high-quality upholstered cushions are firm but comfortable, and available in a variety of colors.

3. Ridiculously Strong

LeanChair's all steel, heavy-duty frame will accommodate anyone up to 6'6", and weighing up to 400 lbs.


4. Ideal Recline Angle

We think 28 degrees is the leaning "sweet spot." You get a nice sense of reclining, without strain.

5. Adjustable Desk

The built-in swing-open desk can be placed on either side of LeanChair, and can be set to any height.

6. Multiple Postures

LeanChair's retractable legrest and adjustable footrest lets you experiment with different postures during the day.

When will the final Kickstarter backers get theirs?

Since the cost of producing each LeanChair is higher than the highest Kickstarter pledge, each new order helps underwrite the production of LeanChairs for our Kickstarter backers. So the speed with which you receive yours will be a function of how successful we are at production and marketing. We will ship them in roughly numerical order using your backer number, and will alert you via email to confirm your address prior to shipment.

Does LeanChair come assembled?

Portions come pre-assembled, but you'll have to do final assembly yourself. There'd be no way to ship it otherwise. The assembly instructions are clear and straightforward. And we include the tools you need to put it together. We also assembly walk-through videos on Youtube.
