News Flash: CoreChair Achieves their Kickstarter Funding Goal

One of our clients, CoreChair, has come up with the idea for a revolutionary active seating system – starting with office chairs.  The CoreChair is a dynamic postural support system that stimulates your core muscles and prevents back pain. In research tests conducted by the University of Waterloo, the CoreChair was proven to engage the user’s core muscles while using it.  This fall, CoreChair embarked on a Kickstarter campaign to pre-sell some of these chairs to early adopters and not only reached but exceeded their goal by 40%!  Inertia’s Consumer Products team designed and engineered the entire chair and tilt mechanism for CoreChair. Congratulations CoreChair! Best of luck as you bring your innovative and healthy product to market.
