Individually adjustable seat depth and tilt ensure a relaxed sitting position: No unpleasant pressure on the backs of the knees, no build-up of fluids in the legs. There's a better supply of oxygen to the muscles and the brain making it easier to retain concentration.  In harmony with one’s chair! Thanks to the perfectly synchronised mechanism, the seat and backrest follow the user's movements precisely.  This means that the spine is always ideally supported  and the shirt-pull effect is avoided.  

With its easy to operate adjustment mechanisms, Cato is a real help in the age of desk sharing and hot desking. Adapts perfectly to different body sizes thanks to height-adjustable backrests and individually adjustable lumbar support .  Everything is self-explanatory.
