Rocking chairs, or rockers, are chairs mounted on curved bands attached to the bottom of the legs. Earning the rocking name by allowing the user to move forwards and backwards along the bands, rocking chairs naturally adjust to a person’s center of gravity and the body’s preferred ergonomic posture.
