Accommodation for height adjustable seating for teachers

    With teachers sitting at eye level with students, there can be a risk of injury from repetitive sitting and standing from such an extreme position, much like deep knee bends.  Inquiring if anyone has used or knows of a supplier of height adjustable chairs with sufficient range to accommodate the change in  position.  Hoping a pneumatic lift, like on many office chairs, would do the trick to allow teachers to lower themselves to the student eye-level height and, likewise, lifted to a more normal sitting height from which to stand.
