At RGP we take what the customer says to heart. At the recommendation of many of our long time customers, we have combined our 400 seating series with our Straddle Stool concept. This chair will provide superior back support but will also relieve leg pressure while allowing the user to sit either high up in standing posture or low with the legs at 90 degrees.
Introducing RGP’s new '400-Straddle Stool'. This unit provides optimal seating allowing for proper positioning of the spine and the pelvis. The equestrian style seat pre-positions you into an anterior pelvic tilt that is important to maintaining good posture throughout the workday. The angle of seat allows for proper balance of core muscles and allows for the maintenance of normal curvature or ‘Lordosis’ with or without the use of the backrest. You decide whether you want to perch forward and work using the saddle concept or if you want to lower the chair a bit and snug the backrest in to provide support to the lower back. This stool hits on all points and has been a huge success in the short time since it's inception.
The 'Active Seating' allows the user to adjust the chair into infinite positions. The chair comes built with a taller piston which will accommodate a very wide range of heights. Arm supports are available to help eliminate shoulder, neck, upper back, and arm fatigue.

Armrests or Shoulder Supports
Many practitioners experience discomfort and fatigue in the shoulders, neck and upper back. RGP’s shoulder support system provides range of motion to perform your task and removes the weight of your arm off your upper back, neck and shoulders.
Relax Armrest: Typically used on the non-dominant or mirror hand, the two dimensional shoulder support alleviates the stress and strain from your upper back, neck and shoulders while allowing you to retract or hold your arm pain-free and stable for very long periods of time.
Hydro Armrest: Used on your dominant arm, the three dimensional shoulder support provides full range of motion for your instrument side.
Foot Activator (adds 5″ to height):
The RGP Foot Activator is a small spring loaded ring that sits at the bottom of the 5 leg base. It is designed for quick height adjustment of the RGP stool. It also eliminates the possibility of contamination by allowing the user to adjust the height hands free. While seated, press the ring with the heel of your foot to lower the stool. To raise, simply stand while pressing the ring simultaneously. The RGP Foot Activator adds 5” to stool height.
Foot Ring: The foot ring is footrest that sits above the wheels.
Replacement Casters: In need of a new wheel for your stool? Sold individually. Shipping fee is based on quantity.
