The above chairs were reviewed considering these comparative factors: ergonomic design, comfort, maximum height, maximum weight capacity, tilt and swivel functions, stability, style, and price. Initially, a broad range of wobble stools was considered. Then, those were winnowed down to five finalists using the above criteria.
These final five were then compared to each within this review using the same criteria as above. Of the five, one was selected as ZDNet's top choice for best overall. The four runners-ups were each chosen for exemplification within a specific parameter or a specific demographic. For example, while the Varier Move was selected for 'best overall,' the Sun-Flex was chosen as 'best for affordability.'
Some variables were given more weight than others, with ergonomic design and function being treated as the most important. Maximum weight capacity and height maximums were weighted as the next most important variables. For the most part, the price was relatively consistent between a majority of standing desk chair options, with some notable exceptions.
