A quick look back at what makes the best counter stool comfortable
Your time and guests that you spend in bar stools can be at least a bit dangerous to your general health even if you only sit for a short time, especially if there is a lack of general physical fitness in daily life. Scientists and researchers suspect so thanks to some ingenious tests done by the likes of the British Journal of Medicine. After over a decade of research into the musculoskeletal dangers of kitchen stools and chairs, it seemed obvious to researchers that spending too much time in chairs and kitchen stools more than likely caused even the smallest bouts of back pain.
