Chair Mechanisms - Synchronized Knee Tilt

Synchronized Knee Tilt Diagram

Practice synchronized sitting. Much like the knee tilt feature, this feature also allows the back to recline, while keeping feet flat on the floor. This is considered a “synchronized” knee tilt because it restricts the extent that the front seat raises when the back is reclined. This helps maintain an ideal posture while maintaining optimal leg circulation. We picked one of our favorite chairs with this feature to highlight.

Alera EB T Chair

Alera® EB-T Series Synchro Mid-Back Flip-Arm Chair

This chair was designed with ergonomics in mind. It features an airy mesh back and a well-cushioned leather seat with a gradually sloped edge, keeping you comfortable for hours on end. This chair gives the user control, with highly convenient features, such as flip-back height adjustable arms that swivel backward and out of the way when not in use. This chair also includes a synchronized knee tilt feature, to manage the extent that the back reclines and with that, the extent of which the seat raises.
