The Learniture active learning stool is a very unique sit stand stool in that it features a non-slip curved base that allows you to rock it a little bit, and this helps strengthen your core muscles by encouraging an upright posture. The wobble stool is not only available in the color black – there are 5 different colors to choose from, so you’ll be able to choose the one that is well suited to match your space. The active learning stool is also height adjustable, so you’ll be able to raise the seat height up to almost 10 inches. Sounds interesting? Great. Stick around as we take you through some of the reasons why we think the Learnable adjustable height active stool could be the best standing desk chair around. And if you have a few minutes to spare, also check out our best office chair list.

Why We Like It – Learniture Adjustable-Height Active Learning Stool

The Learniture Adjustable-Height Active Learning stool is an easy-to-assemble, standing desk stool that has a non-slip curved base that makes the stool wobble, and a pneumatic gas lift that allows you to adjust the seat’s height.

Pros
  • Easy to assemble
  • Available in 3 different colors
  • Wobbles
Cons
  • Would do with more padding

Support

Back support is virtually non-existent on this adjustable height active learning stool, so if you tend to suffer from consistent back pain, please try the Flash Furniture Mid-Back mesh chair, as it would be a much better fit for you thanks to its ergonomic design. If your back is completely fine, then the Learniture height adjustable stool would be perfect to use because the stool features a wide range of motion, and this would help in keeping your core muscles in good shape.

Comfort

Unlike the Gaiam balance ball chair stool, the Learniture active learning stool features a polyurethane seat cover that’s just OK to sit on. It’s not as comfortable as the mesh seat that you’ll find on the Modway Veer Drafting chair, but you’ll still be able to sit on it for hours without feeling too stiff or getting tired quickly. Its backless design encourages proper posture, and its polypropylene frame is also very easy to clean. However, if you need back support that won’t make you sweaty, you’ll want to read our Poly and Bark Inverness ergonomic chair and our Knoll ReGeneration ergonomic chair review.

Adjustability

The range of seat height adjustment on this Learniture height active learning stool is just 2 inches more than what you’ll get with the Seville Classics Airlift 360 Sit-Stand Adjustable Ergonomic Active Balance Non-Slip Desk Stool, and this makes it a slightly better option, especially if you’d consider yourself a short person. The height adjustable seat has a minimum height of 18.5 inches and a maximum height of 28 inches, and can also lean just a bit to take the pressure off your lower back as you sit on it.

Breathability

There’s not much to say about the breathability of this stool, as it’s pretty obvious that it allows you to sit pretty well with your back exposed. Its backless design encourages proper posture, as well as airflow that’s a lot better than what you’d get from a leather chair.

Value

The biggest advantage of this stool is its seat’s ability to wobble and move around with the base remaining in one position. According to the many customer reviews that have been written in the critique of the stool, its curved base helps shift and redistribute the body weight to other parts of the body, like the legs, hence shifting pressure from your lower back.

Learniture Adjustable-Height Active Learning Stool Wrap Up

The Learniture Adjustable stool is a great option for anyone who prefers backless sitting, so if you’ve been thinking about it but never had the opportunity to try it out, then this would be the perfect stool to go ahead and buy.
