"I think I am in Love! @CoreChair"

     Marni Wasserman, The Ultimate Health Podcast


"I’m never, ever, ever parting from my CoreChair and here are the reasons why:

  • I find it helps with my posture because it has no arms to promote bad posture
  • The back of the chair is positioned in the perfect spot to adequately support my back
  • In short, I refuse to part from my CoreChair.

I can tell you with the two chairs in our office, there is a fight every morning either of them are away amongst the remainder of the team to steal one for the day. I personally do not wear my entire use of force for the day as I have an ongoing back issue that I suffered a few years ago. This chair and standing desk combination has done wonders for me. At first, it was a little hard to adjust to but once you correct your posture the chair is great. If you are feeling good and solid for the day you can loosen off the tension and move your core a ton throughout the day."

 "I am a radiologist and spend most of my day sitting and reporting cases. I have tried several ergonomic style chair and stools over the years. The CoreChair is the absolute best in my experience. I can sit through my work and at the end of a busy day I have no stress in my back or legs. The CoreChair is a must for anyone spending long hours at a workstation. Try it and you will agree."

     Dr. Jeffrey Jenkin, Chief of Diagnostic Imaging, Sault Area Hospital


 "My "Achilles heel" in life is low back pain. I wore a brace as a child for scoliosis. Today, if I don't stretch and keep my core strong, I experience back pain. Not surprisingly, my back is extremely finicky when it comes to my office chair. I've spent endless years adjusting my office chairs with pillows and pads - all to no avail. Enter CoreChair and active sitting. I purchased my own chair about six months ago, frankly expecting my back to reject it. But lo and behold, I love it! I'm sitting on it as I type this. The CoreChair actively engages my core muscles in a gentle way. And it's endlessly adjustable. Typing tendonitis? Gone with my CoreChair. I give this chair my highest recommendation. And they've got a great refund policy too so you can give it a thorough try before you commit, just like I did."

     Dr Kara Fitzgerald, ND Naturopathic Doctor


 "As a workplace ergonomic specialist, this chair should be everywhere I go and I should take it everywhere I go."

Kevin Honsberger, PT, ON, Canada


 "Initially I was a bit skeptical that this modest looking chair would take the place of my previous iconic office chair, but I quickly learned that my CoreChair delivered on all promises to provide long term sitting comfort and relief of my stubborn back pain.

I now feel that my personal quest for health and fitness is well complimented with this innovative sitting solution."

Well done CoreChair. This is a quality solution."

     Geoffrey Smith, President and CEO, EllisDon Corporation

 "I have lower back issues from years of neglect and poor posture. My job requires that I sit for long periods, which can cause chronic lower back pain and difficulty with movement. I was excited to try the CoreChair and after 6 month of use, I am finding that I have eliminated the lower back issues. I can sit with comfort and find that the action of the chair keeps me engaged with my body position and movements. When I have to sit in a regular chair for any period of time, I now find that I try to alter my position to mimic the CoreChair alignment since it feels better on my posture. Best investment for someone who spends lots of time sitting."

     Ilmar Simanovsk, ON, Canada


 "Thanks so much for touching base with me regarding my new CoreChair!!  Can I just say……I love my CoreChair!!!! 

I’ve only been using it for a week and a half and already I feel the benefits! I’m finding my knees and lower back feel better at the end of a long day at the desk.  I like the fact that I can set the movement to suit me and I feel like I am moving more even though I’m sitting at the desk. I love the ‘perch’ position best in the chair.  I like that there are no arms on the chair. It works better with my keyboard tray and I have more freedom of movement in my tiny office.  I love the fact that the back rest sits snug to the bottom of my back. I find it very comfortable and helps keep my posture throughout the whole work day which in turn makes me feel better by the end of the day!

My co-workers are envious of my new chair! 

Thanks so much CoreChair for making my long day at work a little more manageable and enjoyable! You rock………or should I say……you sway and perch! Lol"

     Suzanne Jessome, Woodstock, ON, Canada


"I have been suffering from lower back pain for over 30 years, brought on usually after long periods of sitting and working at my desk and computer. The usual symptoms I suffer after such a sitting session are the inability to stand straight and walk without lower back pain. After using your chair for only one day I noticed a vast improvement in increased mobility and reduction of pain and muscle spasm. After several weeks of regular chair use, I am now virtually pain free and no longer dread sitting at my desk. Thank you for designing and manufacturing such a high quality and useful product. I must also commend you on your excellent customer service and positive attitude of your support staff. All in all, another great Canadian innovation - I wish you continued success and the opportunity to bring lower back pain relief to many more sufferers."

     Larry Flader, BC, Canada


 "I’ve been having neck muscle pains and headaches for the last two to three years and I knew that it was caused by my sitting down in front of a computer for eight to twelve hours a day at my job.

I’ve been seeing chiropractors from time to time, which has not solved the problem. I was also exercising regularly. My neck pain would get better after I have exercised, but sitting down at my job would bring the stress back and cause pain to come back. At the end of the week, it would actually take a few days before I would feel okay again.

About a year ago, I got a new good quality chair in the hopes of improving the situation. This helped a little bit, but I had to constantly adjust the arm rest up and down, in and out and I was constantly re-adjusting the height, the angle of the back rest, etc. My neck muscle pains were always still there.

Finally, I went to the Partners in Crime Prevention Convention where I saw the CoreChair being demoed. I tried it while you explained the ins and outs and the purpose of the chair. I was convinced that this chair would solve my neck muscle pain problems. When I got back to work, I checked the CoreChair website a few times and then got my manager to approve the purchase of this chair. I ordered the chair on a Wednesday and received it the next Monday, assembled it and I’ve been using it for one and a half weeks now. I was impressed at how quickly I had received the chair.

My neck pain is no longer there. I keep moving all the time in my chair, which exercises several muscles and I don’t have any choice but to hold a good posture in it. Unlike other chairs that I’ve had before, which kept me immobile, this chair keeps me moving and exercises many muscles while at the same time letting me concentrate at what I need to do."

     Michel, ON, Canada


 "I LOVE MY CHAIR!!! My husband wants one too."

     Carolyn Turnball, ON, Canada


"I wanted to inform you that I presented the CoreChair to an orthopedic doctor and he was very impressed. He said that this chair is by far the best quality he has seen so far."

     Aziz Aljumaa, Saudi Arabia


"I have just had back surgery and have come to understand how problematic sitting at a desk all day has become and how it has contributed to my back problems. Your new chair dramatically changed my sitting posture and I am exploring different ways of using it to build core strength. I have been telling everyone that sitting is the new smoking in terms of health hazards. I think your new chair is coming on the market at the perfect time and I wish you all the best with it."

     Colin Callender, NY, USA


"Received my CoreChair last week and noticed immediately its benefits on my body! I knew I would not be disappointed…thank you!"

     Aimee Kilbourn, ON, Canada


"I have had a CoreChair for the last 5 months and I love it. I always had a “good” chair, but now my previous chairs feels like a park bench."

     Kevin Carter, ON, Canada


"My @CoreChair arrived today. This thing is amazingly comfortable. My core has been engaged all day. #chairevolution. This @CoreChair is great for #posture. I find myself w/ my feet flat on the floor most of the time, instead of slouching like I normally do."

     @teedubya


"I currently enjoy active sitting at my desk, in my CoreChair and I can honestly say that I haven’t seen my chiropractor since I got my chair! I can’t imagine sitting without it, my core is stronger and my posture is 100% better than it ever has been before."

     Sonya Latehman, ON, Canada


"I love, love LOVE my CoreChair! I saw it on Dragons’ Den and also go to test one out at a recent trade show. I received impeccable service from the online team after ordering and I even received a phone call to follow up with my order to see if I had any questions. Received it on a Tuesday at noon and set it up right away. Normally in the evenings my lower back/hips/thighs are very tense and sore from sitting all day. Didn’t feel any of these symptoms on Tuesday night! Yesterday was my first full eight hours with the chair and it really is life changing. I feel I have energy throughout the day and I am not forcing myself to sit properly in the chair. Not to mention it is so smooth and so much fun to move around on! (and comfy!) At first I was a little hesitant about spending that type of money on a chair but for a chair that I am sitting on eight hours a day from Monday to Friday 9-5, it was the best investment ever! Thank you CoreChair for being so awesome!"

     Amy, BC, Canada


"As a professional orchestral musician for many years, sitting for long periods of time while practicing and performing is routine. My old chairs were hard and uncomfortable, and I found it difficult to sit for any length of time without getting up and moving around. After trying out the CoreChair for a week, I am sold on it. The lumbar support is excellent and can be adjusted, and the contoured cushion is so very comfortable and supportive, that I look forward to heading to the practice room each day!! There is a resistance level that can make the cushion seat shift from looser to more sturdy, which is great for exercising. You can also find videos online with a personal trainer that one can access and exercise with…so this is indeed a two part chair!! I love my CoreChair and highly recommend it!"

     Jill, ON, Canada


"I love this chair! From the moment I sat down on it at the trade show where I was first introduced to it, to the moment I watched the Dragon’s Den episode, to the next and the next. 

The proof for me was in the pudding, as it is often said. As a graphic designer I have a sedentary job, with a day job and freelance clients at night, I spend more time than the usual person sitting so this definitely captured my interest. 

While I sat there talking to your sales and manager who happened to have a 6th degree connection through a friend in my field of business, I used the CoreChair, rocking back and forth and all around. After 15 minutes sitting in the chair I got up and my sore back was refreshed, it felt loosened and the compressed sensations I often get in my lower back were gone. That day had been especially tiring, walking the trade show floor for work, I was now feeling so much better. I have recommended this chair to anyone who will listen.

Thank you."

     Marie Vecera, ON, Canada


"After researching the CoreChair I was so interested in the science that went into its design that I purchased one for my home office. Love, Love this chair. It provides me with the lumbar support that I have always longed for but could never find in anything before this device. The motion of the chair has certainly strengthened my core because in the first week or two I noticed the muscles reacting to the full motion of the device. I know that the longer I use it the more I will develop better posture both on and off the CoreChair. I have even referred a colleague to the representative and he has bought one for his home office as well. As I said before… Love it!"

     Bill McBurney, ON, Canada


"I used to have lower back pain for years when I sit too long. With CoreChair, I have no pain at all. I love this chair it [is] the best acquisition I have done. No physio anymore! I recommend it."

     Jean Catafard, BC, Canada


"I have suffered from poor posture at my computer table and drafting table for years resulting in chronic back pain.  I purchased my CoreChair in March 2015 and have been enjoying its health benefits ever

since.  I ordered the [regular] version of the chair, but after a couple months found it was not high enough for my drafting table.  I contacted CoreChair and they immediately sent me the taller lift part.  Now my chair fits my needs at both stations. I appreciate the great service and my back appreciates proper support."

     Cathy Bauer, AB, Canada


"I have used my CoreChair for a year and it has been the most comfortable and adaptable chair I have ever used. One should have a good lesson to fully maximize all the amazing options.  I am most impressed how it has improved my posture together with so many movement options. It does not take up a lot of space and wheels around easily. We wheel it in for all our management team meetings offering the “funny motion” chair to whoever wants it. Change is good and this is a high quality product."

     Tam Matthews, BC, Canada


"The muscles in my back were sore the first week of using this chair…which means I was finally holding the correct posture for sitting. My neck and back have become stronger since I started using the chair and I have had a way more comfortable work day because of it. Thank you CoreChair!"

      Kelsey Leifson, ON, Canada


"As I sit here in my home office...I love my new chair. Most comfortable chair I've ever had. Great mechanics and I know helping with my posture/core. We actually have two in our house. Marie loves hers as well. Wishing you continued success with the CoreChair revolution!"

     Garth Wright, ON, Canada


 "As a typical ‘jack of all trades’ entrepreneur, I spend countless hours at my desk, which also means I spend too much time sitting in a chair without much physical activity. Prior to purchasing my CoreChair, I was buying a new office chair every year or two in an attempt to help fix the back pain I was experiencing from sitting so much. Each new chair would bring short term relief, but before long, lower back pain would return and stay.

Shortly after the Dragon’s Den episode aired, I was able to sit in a CoreChair for 20 minutes at an industry trade show and try it for myself. I couldn’t believe how much better my back felt just from sitting in this chair 20 minutes! I decided to make the investment and purchase a CoreChair that week. I reasoned that I sit in an office chair between a third and a half of my day and if this chair does what it claims, my back issues will be long gone. Besides, with a money back guarantee, how can one go wrong? Now, many months since acquiring my CoreChair, my only regret is not having known about this chair sooner. My lower back pain is gone, my posture is better and my core muscle group is more actively engaged when seated. All of these benefits have helped me be more productive at my desk and allowed me to enjoy the rest of my day pain-free. P.S. This was written while sitting in my CoreChair."

     Dan, ON, Canada


 "I've been working in the corporate world for a few decades now so I can tell you that I have been sitting most of my life.  I have always been an active person and know the benefits of taking breaks and moving when I can but as the years go by, so does my flexibility and tolerance to sitting. 

I knew I needed to make a change and do something so I brought an exercise ball into the office with the intention of using it a couple hours a day instead of my "ergonomic chair.  

I was told to bring it home because it was a safety hazard. I did and my problems continued. 

I saw Shirley Plant on Instagram one day and she was demonstrating a CoreChair. I was amazed that there was something made just for me. I contacted her and my life changed.

We connected and she took her time to show me the correct way of sitting and making the proper adjustments to suit my body and then invited me to try the core chair out at my office to see how I liked it. I wanted to be sure it alleviated my symptoms of low back pain and sore left arm from the arm rests on my existing chair. She provided me with literature and followed up with an email to see how I was doing.  The whole process was personal and caring. So nice to experience good customer service. 

I am extremely happy and feel better every day that passes. My core strength is coming back to me and I feel that it is improving my posture."

     Darlene, ON, Canada


"I didn’t like using a ball or ½ ball at my desk, it was too wobbly and was uncomfortable for my pelvis. The CoreChair is excellent as it is the right balance of comfortable support, it encourages a supportive posture, and it allows my pelvis axial and rotational movement which I can’t get in my regular office chair."

     Ryan Johnson, BC, Canada


"I was finding that my ankles were swelling by the end of the day in a regular office chair, once I switched to my CoreChair this stopped completely.  The freedom of movement it provides is tremendous and the smoothness of the caster wheels allow me to function within my area and then some. Great product."

     Sandra, ON, Canada


"Using the CoreChair regularly has all but eliminated the lower back pain I’ve dealt with for my entire adult life – this is by far the best my back has felt in over 30 years.  I’m guessing that much of the improvement is simply the result of the CoreChair’s unique cushion form helping me to maintain proper sitting posture, while all other chairs I’ve used allow (or even encourage) poor posture habits.  Get your butt in a CoreChair, you’ll be glad you did."

     Eleu Um, ON, Canada


"My CoreChair was a very significant therapeutic compliment to my double hip resurfacing in 2013 and I continue to enjoy the comfort and added benefits of reduced back pain. I never really considered myself an early adopter of such innovative technology but I am certainly pleased that I got my CoreChair."

     David McFarlane, ON, Canada


"My chiropractor visits have disappeared since using my CoreChair. It’s a high quality chair, comfortable, works as promised and after 2 years, still looks like new."

     Else Pedersen, ON, Canada


"Thank you CoreChair for making multiple hours of sitting far more comfortable for me! Not only is it stylish addition to my office but I love the adjustability for freedom of movement through my day."

     Heather Lyons, ON, Canada


"I’m a former professional athlete with a severe L5 disk problems, and the CoreChair literally saved my business life. I’m now able to sit at my desk in the office for a full day without back pain. It’s the only chair that worked for my back…worth every penny!"

     Stu Bundy, ON , Canada


 "I had suffered from recurring lower back pain on and off for 20 Years and was soon approaching 60 years of age. I purchased a CoreChair in 2014 specifically looking for a better, healthier way to spend my 7 to 9 hours a day at a desk. After being on the chair 2 years, my back, posture and overall strength in my torso has never been better. I believe CoreChair has made a meaningful benefit to my overall health and could not live without it! It’s the best investment I ever made in terms of my health and it continues to operate flawlessly."

     Dave, ON, Canada


 "Prior to getting my Core chair, I used a $1000 “executive” chair that I assumed was the state-of-the-art seating experience for those of us who sit behind desks. The CoreChair was a Christmas gift that I immediately adopted. I am now always comfortable sitting at my desk and no longer feel the need to continuously adjust my position. Well done CoreChair guys!"

     David, ON, Canada


 "I LOVE my CoreChair! I have always hated sitting still for long periods of time, but I can keep working and rocking all day long in my CoreChair. As someone who perpetually squirms and fidgets in other chairs, CoreChair facilitates healthy movement throughout my day."

     Heather Higgins, Colorado, USA


 "I asked myself, what kind of office chair has no armrests…sitting in the CoreChair, I felt comfort…the support, immediate warmth and release on my lower back felt very good…not only that…I can feel my abs working…the kind of chair that provides for a healthy lifestyle, freeing those who feel chained to their chair. Thanks CoreChair."

     Michael


 "I love my CoreChair and wish I could bring it with me when I work elsewhere.  Two days in my CoreChair at home office and my lower back is thanking me - two days on a regular office chair and my back suffers.  I have even started to go and sit on it to read the newspaper or a book.  I love the lumbar support and the fact that I can move around, shake it up a bit, and keep mobilizing my back while sitting - it also keeps my brain focused! I have had my chair for over a year now and the quality is outstanding."

     Danielle Heine, Calgary, Canada


 "As a creative agency, we sit at our computers too long—sometimes 8-10 or more hours a day. One of the major complaints from my staff was back, shoulder, and neck pain. We upgraded our old chairs several times but to no avail. We’ve had our CoreChairs almost a year now and there have been ZERO complaints. Pain and discomfort are gone, myself included! From a business perspective, it’s been a great investment! I also love watching the CoreFit videos available on the website that feature stretch routines I can do at my desk. If I’m having a particularly long day, I’ll take a break to do one and feel so much better afterward."

     Maria Papadakis, ON, Canada

 

 "I am an 81 year old Mother and Grandmother who has spent 35 years in the past sitting in an office at a desk with poor Office Chairs, I now have arthritis and back and neck problems because of the "Sitting Disease" as they call it today.  My Hobby is knitting and I spend many hours sitting but now that I have a CoreChair it has changed the way I feel, if my back is aching and I sit in the CoreChair it relieves the pain.  A lot of older people like myself have trouble getting up after sitting for a while with the CoreChair there is no problem it moves with the body, also with Seniors exercising is a struggle but with the CoreChair you can exercise while sitting which helps build muscle strength which we lose as we get older.  The CoreChair is not just for the younger generation but more importantly it is for us Seniors as well."

     Letty Forsyth, ON, Canada


 "I absolutely love the CoreChair.  I have been looking for a chair like this forever.  I've had friends over to my office numerous times, and without fail, they are curious about my “weird-looking” office chair.  When I invite them to sit in it for a while, they agree - it's crazy comfortable!  It arrived in a large, sturdy box.  Every component seems to be very well engineered - built to last - and why wouldn't it be with the very generous warranty that comes with it?  In combination with my sit-stand desk, I have a work space that moves with me all day.  I never could sit still - and now I don't have to!  Thank you CoreChair!!"

     Christian, Massachusetts, USA


 "I love my CoreChair! I have struggled all my life with bad posture. I tried it for a couple of weeks on a demo. For the first time, I did not have a sore back at the end of the day. It has changed my life! I love how it forces you to sit properly and pay attention to sitting up straight and it is very, very comfortable."

     Michele


 "The CoreChair was recommended by my physical therapist as a secondary option to an ergo ball since standing wasn’t promoting healing from my car accident injuries.

I am excited to finally be on the road to real healing.  I’ve been at a standing desk (by choice) for two years since traditional chairs are painful but the CoreChair isn’t painful!  I can actually sit in it all day long (with breaks) without blinding and debilitating pain!"

     Brittany


 "I am very happy with the CoreChair! I am using it in my office since this is where I am sitting pretty long hours, and my back is much better since the chair is there. I am actually missing it during the weekends at home. Just yesterday I had an appointment with my chiropractor. He was very satisfied about the progress I made and was impressed that my muscles are much better in balance than they used to be. The CoreChair has really improved my daily life!"

     Barbara, Weinheim, Germany


 "We have been very happy with the CoreChairs. It has been beneficial for ergonomics and my colleague who has 20 years’ experience from the engineering field, said that his back pains disappeared when he started to use this chair. He had those for years before coming to work in Matricomp. We now have CoreChair for everyone here (3 people). 

Also I am happy with your delivery and service. 

100% positive feedback from us!"

     Antti, Keuruu, Finland


 "Best chair I've used since becoming desk-bound 15 years ago. Took a day to get used to, (I'm pretty set in my ways), but now I would not want to give it up.

My back feels better than ever, and the design of the chair actually helps to reduce the visual clutter around my desk. Thanks CoreChair!"

     Matthew


 "Thanks for the core chair. Being an engineer I have a to sit a lot for my job and this chair has been a great investment. Over the last few months, I have seen myself slouch less at a desk. I also experience less back and neck pain and a lot of pressure has also been take off my tail bone." 

     Prashant Kandathil, BC, Canada


 "I'm extremely happy with my new CoreChair.

Bye, bye back pains and hello core workout/strengthening.
What an amazing product!  Thank you!"

     Andrée Kelley, ON, Canada


 "I have had the CoreChair for a month now, and love it.  As I have aged, my active work life started to slow down and I found I was spending all day sitting at a desk.  I found myself spending less time in the gym, I had become sedentary.  The CoreChair has been great for my core strength, back pain and stiffness is gone.  When I see the chair it is reminding me to get more active though the day.  It is a great product, simple to put together and solid.  Thanks."

     John


 "I have had lower back issues for years, and I have found that using the CoreChair for the last six months has lessened my back pain considerably and has also helped to improve my posture."

     Paul


 "My CoreChair is working out great for me. I especially like the way the backrest fits into the small of my back. I'm 62 years Old (retiring soon) and find that the chair provides options for stability and wab-bility making for different modes of comfort.  Thanks Again."

     Mike


 "Thank you!  I absolutely love, love, love my chair!  It has been the best investment I have made toward my back pain. I no longer get the spasms I was having.  There is a definite correlation between the time I received my chair and the pain stopping!  I wish I would have known about the core chair months ago.  I have felt my back and core muscles getting stronger every day.  I have not gone to the chiropractor once since using my new chair! 

Thanks so much for all your help.  I am a totally happy customer!"

     Jenine

 

 

 "I LOVE my Core Chair! Being able to actively sit while working is incredible. I no longer feel the stiffness in my back and neck that I used to, and it is wonderful to keep engaging my core while seated. The technology built into this chair is undeniable and it is so strong and supportive while also taking up FAR less space than other chairs I have owned. I would highly recommend this chair to anyone who works at a desk and I can't wait to see how far this company grows in the years to come as we all begin to realize that "sitting is the new smoking"! Well done, Core Chair, on doing your part to create a healthier workforce."

     Sarah Roberts 


 "I saw this on Dragon’s Den and decided to go for it.  I’m in my mid-60’s, retired and have lower back issues.  I use it 1-4 hours a day at my computer on the ‘loose’ setting so that I lean all the way back when reading etc. I found I can sit much longer comfortably and it helps my lower back immensely. I'm glad that I bought it."

     Ron M, ON, Canada  


 "Dear the CoreChair team,

As someone who has had the chronic lower back pain and receiving chiropractic treatment for over 2 years, I am thrilled to say that after only 2-3 weeks of using the CoreChair my back pain is minimal and I am able to spread out my treatments. I can confidentially say the activity aspect of the chair keeps my back feeling loose so I do not need to make as many laps around the office to get that much needed stretch from sitting all day.

Thank you for your impeccable customer service and invention of the CoreChair!

Warmest Regards from a very happy customer."
