Mobis Seat’s minimalist design encourages you to use your muscles to support a better posture versus other traditional seating options. It supports a leaning posture that encourages a hip-to-torso range of 130 to 135 degrees, which may provide less pressure on your spine and connecting muscles when compared to standing. Pivoting seat leg encourages dynamic movement to keep users active throughout the workday, and the ellipse shaped base with non-slip rim provides stability for active postures. Seat features a non-slip, easy-to-clean, contoured seat cushion, which may help to reduce pressure points. Built-in handle for easy portability, and easy-to-adjust handles raise and lower the seat from 25" to 35"H. Seat pairs with any standing desk or table, and is rated up to 300 lbs. Simple, two-step assembly. Pair with the Stabilizing Foot Rest Model FFR-1000 (sold separately). Designed by Martin Keen.

It's definitely not designed to be "comfortable". The idea is to ease the pressure of plain standing, and keep you shifting position. Stand, perch, stand, perch--then maybe sit down awhile in a chair. I don't see how this could be used as an actual stool to sit on. If that's what you need, this isn't for you.
The quality is solid. I'm a heavy person, over 220 lbs and 5'10" (33" inseam), and I'm using the seat at about 80% of its maximum height.The pneumatic support feels very sturdy, and the base grips the rug tightly. I feel no danger that the stool will slide back or tip while I'm perched against it. The slight sway of the column in its socket on the base lets me fluidly shift and adjust my position in relation to the work surface. The lift mechanism works smoothly and feels well made.
The handle built into the seat makes it easy to lift and move the seat. The minimalist look blends in with my decor, and the small footprint has been perfect for my very small space.
I chose the Mobis over the Locus or the Mogo because I wanted to be able to walk away from it without it falling over (unlike the Mogo) and I wanted to be able to slide it back if I want to fully stand or have someone come to my desk to chat (unlike the Locus).
I love the fact that it keeps me mobile. I can walk away from it in a second to go talk to someone, grab a cup of coffee, or to just move around. I can slide it out of the way or carry it with me into the conference room.
The only negative is that when you shift your weight (which this thing encourages), it creaks like a cheap office chair. I'm hoping to find a fix that doesn't require me to take the whole thing apart. If the creaking doesn't bother you, this is an excellent chair.
I bought this after finding that the Mogo was great, but would slip out from under you. (Mogo Portable Seat With Black Cushion)
But there is one major, sad flaw in the Mobis. The angle of the seat does not angle down far enough.
You'll find that when you are at a standing desk, the straighter that you stand, the *more* angle you need in your standing perch, not less. But there is a complication to this - once you do stand up very straight with a perch, you can then stick your legs out, but still keep them perfectly straight, which feels great and is half the reason I *want* a perch stool to begin with. In that position, you still need more angle in the standing perch. But in this position you still aren't sitting at all - you really are standing, because your legs are completely straight.
Once you make the angle of the stool less, so that the stool points a bit more upright, you're forced to start bending your knees to be able to use the perch at all.
My point is that the Mogo angles enough (I think 8 or so degrees, but I might be off) that I can use it well as a standing perch and be nearly perfectly upright with my legs perfectly straight, even if they're angled out.
That standing position is, sadly, unobtainable with the Mobis. The Mobis' range of motion - the number of degrees it leans forward - isn't enough to support a true standing experience with the support of the stool (at least for me). This was the whole reason I bought the thing.
That said, I do use it for more 'sitting' purposes occasionally. It's a great stool for being in a very upright sitting posture with a nice angle and range of motion to move your hips and legs around while you work. And it is such a compact, solid, well made unit, with a base that will nonetheless never slip, that there's no way I will give this three stars. Like I say, I like having this around, it is so easy to grab and move from room to room, and I use it occasionally. I love this type of orthopedic seat overall as I can't stand regular chairs. It's just that --- I really wish I could use it as a standing perch, and I can't. Maybe that's why they call it a 'leaning' perch. Don't be fooled. Standing may be leaning, but in the case of the Mobis, leaning is not standing.
I hope Mobis comes out with a redesign to provide greater angle for the seat. That is all it would take, if the base were still able to support that angle without slipping. That would be 5 stars. As it is, this is a great, solid, compact piece of equipment - but not 5 stars, given the reason I bought it and my hope & desire for it.
UPDATE: I do use this with a slant board / foot rest, which brings out the true 'standing perch' benefit of the Mobis. The need for a slant board could be optional if the angle of the seat were greater, which would make the Mobis gain benefit as *both* a quick, easy-to-use slant seat when you don't want to deal with, move, remember where, or store a footrest - *or* with a footrest / slant board if you really want to get set up in a good position with the slant board, you can do that too.
