legs at less than 45 degrees you can still get the benefit from an upright, posture. Move your feet back under the seat to obtain the 45-degree angle (135-degree torso to leg.)

Raising the seat to a seat height just slightly below standing – with the seat slightly tilted forward — you will be able to sit down and rest … and take weight off your legs and feet.
