CoreChair: Why Choose This Posture Correcting and Ergonomic Office Chair


With one out of four American adults spending more than eight hours a day sitting down, it’s no wonder a good amount of us suffer from poor posture, tight hips, and neck and back pain. In fact, 86% of Americans spend all day sitting at their job. That’s a lot of sitting with not much movement! So, what can you do to ensure you’re moving at work while also getting your work done you ask? Cue ergonomic chairs that help with posture correcting, core activation, and active sitting. Today, MoveU goes over how CoreChair can help encourage movement while also reducing pain and why that’s so important for you office workers!

What Makes Ergonomic Office Chairs Different?

Ergonomic chairs are designed to support the body, specifically the spine, so you can sit for prolonged periods of time supported and without pain. The following are taken into consideration before these types of chairs can be called ergonomic: back support, comfort level, movement, and distribution of weight.

Here are some other ways ergonomic chairs are the best choice for your in-person or at-home office: 

  • Mobilizes the joints of the hip, pelvis, and spine.

  • Encourages core activation.

  • Improves posture.

CoreChair is the only ergonomic chair option we’d recommend to be honest because this chair promotes movement and encourages proper spinal alignment. 

CoreChair sets itself apart from other ergonomic chairs in the game as it has a pelvic support cushion made from memory foam to help encourage proper pelvis alignment. It also gives you the ability to move around on the chair, which stimulates blood flow, mobilizes your joints, and strengthens your core muscles. Studies from the Mayo Clinic/Arizona State University concluded that passive sitting on CoreChair with incidental movement resulted in a 20% higher increase in caloric expenditure when sitting on a conventional ergonomic chair. So, if you want to burn calories while at work, this chair is the chair to get you started.

How Is CoreChair Different Than Other Ergonomic Chairs?

Why We Love CoreChair

CoreChair doesn’t just provide posture correction and lumbar support it is the best chair on the market for your health. Here are some ways CoreChair stands out:

  • NEAT™ (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) certified (helps you increase your daily activity)

  • Builds core strength

  • Increases blood flow

  • Improves cognitive abilities

  • Increases caloric burn

  • Improves circulation

  • Sets you up for better posture

  • Provides pressure point relief and back and pelvis support

  • CoreChair also doesn’t have a tall back (that way you can actually move your spine) or armrests (so your weight is evenly distributed in your chair).

How Does CoreChair Help with Posture?

In a conventional chair, you’re not set up for success. You’re in poor sitting posture where your pelvis is in a posterior tilt and there’s pressure on your lumbar spine. CoreChair puts you in an optimal seated posture where you can move throughout the day. This helps lubricate your intervertebral discs and strengthen your core stabilizing muscles which also enhances your cognitive ability. Yes, you read that right, this chair can help you focus better at work.

CoreChair’s short chair back lets the spine freely move in its natural movements: flexion, extension, and rotation.

CoreChair and a Standing Desk: A Dynamic Duo

Posture Correcting Chair and Standing Desk

While it’s assumed that a standing desk is the best alternative to a conventional office chair, there’s one thing that you’re forgetting here: Movement. Is. Key. Moving around, so sitting, and standing, is best for your overall health. An ideal scenario might be a standing desk with a CoreChair so you can switch between working sitting down and standing up.

How Can You Reduce Hip Pain While Sitting at a Desk?

You can reduce hip pain while seated at a desk by ensuring you have an ergonomic chair and standing desk. Most desk chairs put your pelvis in a tilted position which puts pressure on your back. CoreChair provides lumbar support and allows you to move while working. As sitting for extended periods of time can shorten your hip flexors, you also want to make sure you’re stretching throughout your day too.

How to Prevent Feet Swelling While Sitting at a Desk

Another benefit of CoreChair is that it encourages you to be more mindful of your body positioning and how to incorporate more movement into your day. If you experience feet swelling at your desk, it could be due to a lack of movement. Dependent edema happens when fluid gets stuck in your body’s tissues, which can happen if you sit down for too long without moving.

Inactivity is the most common cause of feet swelling at your desk, so get up and move. Or try CoreChair and use it to move around while working!

Back pain managed

In just a few short days on the Back & Core program I saw a meaningful difference. I felt freedom from my back pain related to muscle spasms that I haven't felt in several months.

Knee pain is fading

I started using MoveU because I had nagging knee pain that bothered me when running, biking, skiing, etc. It was really bumming me out so I decided to try MoveU Knee, Ankle and Foot Program. I am about to finish week 2 and my knees already feel much better!

Comprehensive and engaging

The programs cover how to balace the whole body to minimize (or ward off any future) pain that’s caused by poor alignment. There’s an overall upbeat tone in the videos that makes you want to try your best.

Better than physical therapy

MoveU is a great program and worth the subscription. I've used it to supplement my normal weightlifting, cardio, and yoga. The monthly cost is about the same as one or two yoga classes, so it pays for itself. The app is very intuitive and well built. I'm glad to see they put in the up front work, and they are continually involved in the content. If you want to fix your issues at home, this is the best way.

To all the people that have tried every intervention. To the hopeless and helpless feeling. After all these years of disappointment with the healthcare system, there IS a solution. Dr. Mike and the Moveu Team are dedicated to get you into your healing journey. Not just the physical but also the mental - which is just as important. I love how different this program is from everything else I have ever tried. Love you guys.

Excellent Program

This is the fix for the long haul and I preach it to my family and friends. Going to a PT is great but they only work on the area your insurance allows which doesn't always fix the overall issue. Thank you Dr. Mike for creating this!

Knowledge at your fingertips

Well worth the subscription. I am a chiropractor and I refer to this program for all of my patients. For every diagnosis Dr. Mike and his crew demonstrate an appropriate stretch and/or exercise along with the progression and regression specific to their level of recovery. I highly recommend this app to anyone interested in treating musculoskeletal ailments whether it be your own or your patients. It's one of the few apps purchased that I feel I got my monies worth and more, you won't be dissapointed.

Most supportive and effective tool

This app is super easy to use. Love that I always have my videos with my on the go and the support from the coaches and community is invaluable along the way. Working through 4 herniated discs and it's the first program where I'm feeling hopeful and confident!

It works!

I love this program, and I'm not easily impressed. They know their stuff really well and it's designed in a great way with how it progresses. The core is especially a game changer.

Get out of pain - the ultimate solution!!

I signed up for MoveU because I had this nagging pain for years with absolutely no way of fixing it because no one ever broke it down and showed me how to understand my problem. I love the short classes was well as the deeper live classes. I believe that I'm a lifer and it's one of the most important subscriptions I pay for in my life.

Your very best version just a MoveU away 🙌

All in one app, to realign and reset your whole body. In the most natural, gradual, and far from the invasive way. I have been a walking injury from sports for 30+ years...I never thought I could find an integral solution.
