Osmond sells the Checkmate in the UK.

"For years I have had painful legs after work, but not since I have been using the chair. Why couldn't I have had it years ago?"
A senior secretary

"After I injured my back, for some time I could only stand or lie down. But the chair gave me another choice, I could sit without discomfort!"
Senior Scientist

A sewing machinist in a textile factory was given the opportunity to use the chair. When asked her opinion of it her one-word reply was, "Brilliant"!

A secretary to a research institute had been using the chair for some two years. When they were moving the Institute to a new building she said, "If you take away my chair, I'm leaving."
