Che Voigt believes his company has found the solutions to hunched backs, stiff necks and tight shoulders caused by the long-hours of sitting down in front of the computer.

They want to introduce a workstation that transions from a standing desk to a seated table and into a fully reclined chair resembling a dentist's chair, Stuff reports.

In order to support the whole body from head to heels, the seat expands and retracts to comfortably suit any body type. While the desk portion moves up, down and rotates as well as screen, keyboard and mouse that has hand-eye coordination with its user.

Voigt called it the way of the future since it can transform into any comfortable position for its users while using a computer, the site added. It is reportedly cost US$5900.

According to Che Voigt, before dismissing the idea of this "transformer" chair, you have to try its wonder first. He also added that people should invest on ergonomical items and furniture before it's too late.

 Voigt, 45, chief executive of Altwork, a company that builds each workstation by hand said, "Comfort is material to creativity. If you're stressed or distressed, the mind can't fall into creativity. We want to get into an area where you can be productive and do really good work," as published on Stuff.

Technology and innovation is where the future is and Silicon Valley tech companies are a living testament to it. They are known for supporting out-of-the-norm ideas and inventions that improves productivity and creativity.

"Being comfortable at your desk is really important," said Helen Wu, director of growth partnerships at San Francisco tech firm AppLovin, where employees can freely do work in whatever position.

Although, Wu doesn't have an Altwork Station yet, she is using multiple ergonomic gadgets and items and she added, "Having a setup where you don't have to worry about your physiology lets you focus on your work," Stuff reports.

The Altwork Station may be pricier than other offerings in the market, but we all know that people are willing to shell out if it induce creativity and comfortability.

Could this be the future of workstations?
