RBT Task Chair by Teknion

If you spend any amount of time stuck behind a desk, chances are you’ve put a lot of thought into what kind of chair you’re sitting in, whether it’s because you love the one you have or it’s horribly uncomfortable and you need a new one (that would be me). Luckily there are companies like Teknion that have your back, quite literally, with office chairs like their latest, the Responsive Back Technology (RBT) Task Chair.

This chair not only supports the user’s back, it actually resembles it by looking like a rib cage or spinal column. Its goal is to encourage proper posture by actually conforming to the user’s back. As someone who looks like their head is close to their desktop by day’s end from sitting too long with no support, it’s nice to know that there’s a chair that continues to adjust to your back all day in hopes of keeping your posture where it’s supposed to be.

It looks like a spine, doesn’t it?

The RBT will be available on Teknion’s website this month.
