“Fantastic for anyone who spends hours in front of a keyboard. Not had a back problem since I got it, frequent before. Good for posture and I like the way it allows you to move position constantly without thinking about it so you don’t get locked into one position as with a regular chair. Looks good too. Well worth the investment.”

Inactive sitting
Active sitting

Active sitting

Sitting has been described as the new smoking.

A badly designed chair can cause you:

  • discomfort leading to lack of concentration
  • grumpiness and irritation
  • serious back issues that may require surgery (I should know as I’ve had 2 back surgeries)

But in modern life we need to sit.

I worked long and hard to create the perfect chair to sit, work and eat in whilst still looking after your back.

RockBack helps you sit healthily in 4 ways

Active sitting

Active sitting uses your body’s core muscles to maintain your sitting position (in passive sitting, the chair is maintaining your sitting position).  RockBack promotes active sitting in the tilted forward position.

Knees below hips

In the tilted forward position, RockBack enables you to sit with your knees below your hips.  This opens up your pelvic angle which creates a healthy position for your back.

Good posture

RockBack helps you sit in comfort with good posture – either active sitting (tilted forward) or passive sitting (rocked back).  The curved seat prevents slumping.


Movement whilst sitting is beneficial as it stimulates different muscles and sids blood circulation.

And it looks great too.

RockBack stylish

Stylish chairs

RockBack will look stylish in any setting. The beech frame can be finished in a range of fantastic finishes. RockBack can be upholstered in three fabulous fabrics with a huge choice of gorgeous colours.

Fantastic finishes

The beech frame can be finished in:

  • Clear lacquer with 5% sheen to show off the natural beauty of the wood;
  • The full range of Farrow & Ball colours; or
  • Woodstains – antique pine, dark mahogany, dark oak, golden oak, light oak, teak, walnut or yew.
Fabulous fabrics
  • Atlantis, a chenille from Villa Nova with easy clean technology in 90 colours.
  • Blazer, a natural wool in 49 colours.
  • Modelli, a huge range of gorgeous fabrics suitable for RockBack.

Love it! Backache from a day sitting at my desk completely banished. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Sue Emery / RockBack customer

I’m always telling my patients to sit with their knees slightly below their hips. It forces the pelvis and lower back into a much healthier position. The RockBack chair helps you effortlessly adopt this position. Plus it looks great. Good for posture and great at preventing back pain!

Nick Metcalfe / Chriopractor

I am perched on my fabulous RockBack chair (in ’tilt forward’ position) as I type this email. Sitting at my desk has never been more comfortable. No more backache and sciatica! Thanks!!
