Ergo Impact helps people live healthier lifestyles while increasing the personal value of the time they spend at work. The LeanRite Elite™ standing desk chair is our first product.

The LeanRite is the perfect companion to adjustable-height standing desks. We enlisted the brightest minds in ergonomics, orthopedic medicine, physical therapy, manufacturing, research, furniture design, and industrial product design to create a revolutionary product that allows users to easily move between several neutral posture seating arrangements throughout the day.

From the embedded anti-fatigue mat to the cushioned seat, which can also be used for lumbar support, the LeanRite's flexible seating options enable users stay active and alert throughout the day.

Leading companies recognize the value of adjustable-height standing desks due to a growing awareness of the health issues associated with sitting. However, many employers are not maximizing their ROI on standing desks because employees are forced to choose between standing or sitting all day. The LeanRite solves this problem by offering multiple positions (sit, stool, perch, and lean) that allow users to move more throughout their workday, keeping bodies and minds fresh and focused.


The LeanRite Chair



“Users significantly preferred having the LeanRite support
them while standing over standing alone.” 2017 study at Marquette University under Dr. Andrew Starsky in the Department of Physical Therapy.


The LeanRite Elite is an aesthetic and engineering success. Our standing desk chair earned the Spark Design Award, a GOOD Design Award, and an International Design Excellence Award (IDEA).
