I have been using the Lifeform 6780 Eclipse High back chair for approximately three months and I’d like to share my user experience. The key feature I’d like to emphasize is the Core-Flex technology seat pan that I had retrofitted to the chair. This feature entails a split in Lifefrom’s traditional contoured seat pan that, “adds a small range of natural motion to stimulate core muscles, improves comfort and increases circulation.” Lifeform’s motive behind the design is to promote movement while sitting. Core-Flex technology claims certain benefits such as: preventing cramping in legs, promotion of circulation, increases in metabolic rate, and increased pelvic tilting and core muscular engagement. However, these claims require stringent testing with biometric equipment to verify the benefits.
