Hi, I am in the process of being diagnosed with RA. I am a science teacher in a secondary school and am finding work extremely hard at the moment due to pain and fatigue. My employers are being very supportive and trying to put things in place to help me. One of the issues I have is that I am sitting at a science bench during the day. They have asked me to look into a type of stool/chair that would be appropriate to use at a science bench that would help with my shoulder, hip and back pain but I don't know where to start and obviously I want to get it right if they are willing to buy one for me. Can anyone recommend a good ergonomic chair that has adjustable height? The other issue is I am only 5'1" so my feet don't reach the floor when I sit at the science bench which causes more pain in my back and legs. Thanks in advance for any suggestions x
