New Ergonomic Kids' Desk from Knelt

There's no end to the various ergonomic products I've tried, or considered trying, to keep my body ache- and pain-free. What I haven't thought about are ergonomic pieces for my kids. What is wrong with me? Then I found Knelt, a desk and chair that is designed to "enhance neutral posture" in kids.

The Knelt system not only allows kids to sit in a comfortable, natural position, its aesthetics are clean, modern, and sleek. The line was designed by company founder Tim Spencer, who has a design degree and is a pediatric nurse. With that history and an interest in Scandinavian design, he created the minimalist set that features tilted surfaces that promote proper body alignment.

We like the Knelt line for its good looks and its functionality. How important is something like ergonomics when you choose children's seating? Is it high on your list of priorities or just a bonus when you get it?
