The Intensor was designed to be used with or without the chair base. Taking both modes of use into consideration creates a unique and challenging design task. BSG Labs did an excellent job of meeting the challenge. Mind you, the Intensor as an office chair won't fit in with your other office furniture - unless, of course, your office is aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise.
The Intensor is very solidly built. Constructed of hard plastic with removable cushion pads (attached with velcro), the Intensor cleans up easily. In addition, the cord that connects the Intensor to its power supply unit is a thick, durable cord which terminates in a sturdy connector.
