Features & Benefits:

Soma Rockit™ is the perfect standard chair for a variety of technical and anatomical reasons, but you'll love it just for the supportive plush comfort and the smooth relaxing rocking-chair-like feel. And that's just the start. What makes it the perfect standard chair is the combination of the state-of-the-art mechanism and the open-system backrest invented by the designers at Soma. This great combination gives everyone, including the individual user, business owner or facilities manager, what they want. One chair designed so well it fits everyone and is the easiest to buy and manage. You can let it adjust itself or you can fine tune it with individual adjustments. With the Rockit™ you no longer have to choose between an easy to adjust chair that automatically rocks and one with the important adjustments you need to accomodate individual preferences for size and posture. Some people like to sit upright and some people like to recline and rock. The Soma Rockit™ does both. No other chair does. And no one gets left out because it's available in 3 stadnard sizes so everyone can get the size that really fits. You can buy it as is, in any of 4 standard sizes or "customize" it to fit most any special need whenever you need to.

Now let's get technical and anatomical. Like all SomaChairs™, the Rockit™ has an open-system backrest that puts your entire back in the most comfortable and healthful posture. Especially your upper back, neck and shoulders which helps reduce upper back muscle tension and RSI's better than any other chairs in the world. The SomaRockit™ promotes Stress-Relieving Dynamic Natural Posture, helping you to get more done and feel better doing it.

More than a chair, the SomaRockit™ is also part of Soma's modular chair system.
