    Lower Back



    Leap is designed with our LiveBack® technology to encourage movement while keeping your full spine supported.

    The spine doesn’t move as a single unit.

    When you recline, your upper spine moves backward and your lower spine arches forward.

    Each individual’s spine motion is unique.

    Even for people of identical size, age, and gender, each spine moves differently.

    Lower Back

    Lower Back

    Your lower back requires firm, constant support while your upper back requires more support as you recline.



    Vision and reach impact your postures. Designed with a Natural Glide System™, the seat glides back and forth as you recline – keeping your posture in check and moving you closure to your worksurface. When you recline in traditional chairs, the distance between you and your work can increase, which in turn can strain your eyes, arms, and neck – pulling you away from your work and flow.
