The CoreChair is an office chair recommended by Chiropractors, Surgeons, Physiotherapists, Massage Therapists, Personal Trainers, and other healthcare professionals across North America.


Pelvic Support

Unlike traditional office chairs with tall back “rests”, the CoreChair addresses back pain from the root cause– the pelvis. The sculpted seat cushion works in conjunction with the pelvic support cushion to provide you with the foundation for a healthy spine to prevent slumping, optimize sitting posture, and reduce back pain.



Movement helps avoid and alleviate back pain and stiffness. Our innovative patented technology allows you to move in all directions up to 14 degrees with an adjustable resistance feature.


Highly Sculpted Seat

The seat of the CoreChair is aggressively sculpted to embrace your sit bones and provide you with even weight distribution to relieve pressure points, prevent sliding, and deliver luxurious comfort. The sculpted seat may dramatically help relieve sciatica and other nerve pain.



All components of the CoreChair are made from recycled or recyclable materials including post-consumer water bottles! We also participate in the UPS carbon neutral program to help offset our environmental impact of shipping the product to you.

Innovative Pelvic Support

Unlike traditional office chairs with tall back “rests”, the CoreChair addresses back pain from the root cause– the pelvis. Tall backrests serve little purpose other than to allow your back muscles to turn off and rest all-day. Instead, we removed the backrest and designed an office chair with a highly sculpted seat cushion that works in conjunction with the pelvic support cushion to hug the top of your pelvis to automatically sit you up in an upright posture. This prevents slumping, optimizes sitting posture, and reduces stubborn sitting back pain.

Fluidic Movement

Movement helps avoid and alleviate back pain and stiffness. Our innovative patented technology allows you to move in all directions up to 14 degrees with a pivot point immediately underneath the seat pan to allow you to stay balanced and have complete control over the chair’s movement. The CoreChair also features an adjustable resistance lever giving you the ability to lock the chair into place to restrict movement when needed.

Highly Sculpted Seat Cushion

The seat of the CoreChair is aggressively sculpted to embrace your sit bones and provide you with even weight distribution to relieve pressure points, prevent sliding, and deliver luxurious comfort. Customer reports has shown that the sculpted seat cushion may dramatically help relieve sciatica, tailbone, and hip pain.

Backed By Research

Do you know of any other office chairs that have undergone significant research studies? We don’t! The CoreChair has been rigorously tested to validate the CoreChair’s effectiveness and safety through various research studies at esteemed institutions including MAYO Clinic, University of Waterloo, Cornell University, University of Guelph, Memorial University, among others. In fact, the MAYO Clinic even awarded the CoreChair with a NEAT™ Certification!


All components of the chair are made from recycled or recyclable materials including our seat covers which are made from 100% post-consumer recycled water bottles. These covers are proudly knit in North America to help support our local communities. We also participate in the UPS Carbon Neutral program to offset the environmental impacts of shipping the product to you.

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’ve talked to two different people in the last two weeks about how much I love my CoreChair. It truly has made a difference in my lower back in particular. And it is super comfortable and fun!
Nicole Judice Campbell, Ph.D., University of Oklahoma

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 used to get stiff shoulders and tension headaches on a regular basis. The occurrence of these headaches has been drastically reduced I have been using this chair (about a year now). You can also do stretches right on the chair that helps with lower back pain as well.

The CoreChair fundamentally changes the nature of sitting from a passive activity to an active one. The effect that this has is principally on the muscles and joints of the body– particularly the low back. When the muscles are active they are coordinated and  strong… and they stay that way– they become healthier.

Chiropractor & Director of Recharge Wellness, GSH Medical Clinic

I have experienced the ride of the CoreChair and believe that it is an excellent therapeutic adjunct to my chiropractic objectives. In addition to mobilizing the critical joints impacted by chronic sitting, it also stimulates core muscle endurance to further stabilize these joints and provide an optimal function sitting posture.
Dr. Howard Zamick, DC

Doctor of Chiropractic

One of the biggest issues of people sitting all day long is the postural muscles and core muscles are weakening over time. The great thing about the CoreChair is that it works on strengthening those weaker muscles. The better stability the person has, the better chance of long term recovery.
DR. DAVID LEE, BA, Bsc, DC, Masters Arts, FDM, NKT, SFMA provider


I recommend this chair to all my clients. A lot of my clients spend 12 hour a day sitting at their desks not moving… with the CoreChair they are able to keep everything moving throughout the day.

Will CoreChair really help my back pain?

The CoreChair has helped thousands of people suffering from back pain caused by stiffness, scoliosis, poor posture, and other back issues.

The CoreChair was designed and developed by someone who truly understands the human body– Kinesiologist and Human-Movement Expert, Patrick Harrison. Unlike most office chairs that are designed to look a certain way, the CoreChair was designed with a research-based approach to address back pain, sitting discomfort, and sedentary behavior.

The innovative pelvic support cushion (in conjunction with the sculpted seat cushion), works to re-align your pelvis with your spine–creating the foundation for a healthy, balanced spine. Often when we experience back pain, our tendency is to rest up and stop the activity. However, moving on the CoreChar gradually works the back muscles in a controlled manner helping to avoid stiffness and alleviate pain. CoreChair combines optimal postural support and movement to create the perfect solution for sitting back pain.

In fact, a study completed by Memorial University concluded that participants sitting in the CoreChair adopted a more upright posture, experienced less back pain and stiffness and had enhanced blood flow when compared to sitting in a traditional office chair.

If for any reason the CoreChair doesn’t help your back pain, you can return it within 60 days for a refund of the purchase price. Please feel Return Policy for details.

Does the CoreChair help sciatica pain?

Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve becomes pinched. This typically happens because the pressure is being applied to the nerve from a herniated disc, spinal narrowing, or even from the piriformis muscle that is located under the glutes. In any case, the Mayo Clinic (2019) suggests that in order to relieve pain and prevent it from occurring one must keep their postural muscles strong through regular exercise and maintain good posture while sitting. Both of which, the CoreChair promotes.

By re-aligning our pelvis into an upright and engaged position, and relieving pressure points under our pelvis while seated, the body is able to release pressure off the sciatic nerve. Then, through movement, we are able to improve the blood flow to the affected area and promote healing.

Is it an orthopedic chair?

CoreChair is designed to provide an ideal combination of optimal support and positioning with safe movement. It can be a perfect orthopedic intervention, supplement to other healthcare initiatives or even preventative measure. In contrast to traditional sitting solutions, CoreChair encourages healthy movement which is necessary to provide ideal nutrients to your supportive soft tissues (muscles and ligaments). CoreChair has proven to be a very effective contribution to persons with chronic back pain.

What is it like to sit in a CoreChair?
Reports arising from thousands of CoreChair users suggest that they feel:

  • More alert and productive throughout their work day
  • Less stiffness in their hips and low back that they would normally experience when they stand up from a traditional chair after sitting for a period of time
  • More comfort under their sit bones and tail bone
  • Reduced upper back and neck pain
  • Less strain on their back when reaching
How is the CoreChair different from other ergonomic chairs?
Traditional ergonomic office chairs still include a tall back as a reflection of corporate advancement. Contrary to popular belief, tall backs serve little purpose other than a carry-over of prestige or an opportunity to lounge in a diminished functional position– relaxed (case in point: the iconic Aeron Chair by Herman Miller was originally designed as a chair for the aging population!). This allows the body to settle into a reclined position which is most cases results in poor alignment of the user’s body relative to their work station.

Armrests are another hazard to our health. Their only function lies in allowing for an inappropriately supported person to lean to one side to stabilize their upper body. Armrests are also the most common inappropriately adjusted features on an office chair. When they are too high they tend to push the shoulders high causing discomfort in the upper back and neck. When they are not fitted properly they tend to contribute to nerve impingement in the forearm and neck.


So what does CoreChair do differently?

CoreChair addresses the “cause” of poor posture and back pain by creating a more aggressive posterior pelvic support. It promotes optimal sitting posture because it embraces the pelvis with an aggressively shaped seat complimented by snug support at the top of the back of the pelvis, near your belt level. With the pelvis supported in this manner, the user experiences a natural balance of their spine from their pelvis to their head. Most people using traditional chairs either perch on the front edge of their seat or completely slump into the tall back, causing excessive demands on their musculoskeletal structure.

CoreChair eliminates the need for armrests by providing the foundation for a properly balanced seated position. Without armrests, CoreChair users are able to move freely throughout their workstation without the interference of armrests hitting their desks.


CoreChair provides a pivot point immediately beneath the users’ center of balance which provides natural movement in all directions up to a safe range of 14 degrees.
