The history of the open angle sitting is derived from CHINESE TRADITION:
.. “In Buddhist tradition a bench or a pillow is often used to create a kneeling-like position that can be maintained for extended periods of Zen meditation discipline. The weight of the torso is lifted off the ankles and the forward tilting seat opens up the angle between trunk and thighs, putting the back into its natural S-shaped alignment." ... Three Norwegian designers Oddvin Rykken, Peter Opsvik and Prof. Svein Gusrud developed chairs based on this principle. This way of sitting became known in countries all over the world. One chair in particular sold in high volumes in Europe, USA and Japan; the Balans Variable, designed by Opsvik. See also HAG capisco chair, which is developed for dynamic office use.

A good posture keeps the skeletal structure balanced and aligned; we manage the force of gravity running through the body by aligning the bones, rather than holding the muscles in a rigid pose.

Beside the healthy upright sitting position, there are much more advantages using saddle-like WEY-chairs. Used together with height adjustable desks, they significantly can increase collaboration and communication in an office. Foster teamwork and emotional qualities within a corporate culture. Additionally enhance the dynamics within an office, while people stand-up more easily and frequently.

This is achieved by lifting all office desk's heights to a higher level, which is closer to a stand-up position.
