This does not mean that they are floating around, but rather they are seated in a particular way to minimize the effects of stress on their body during takeoff.
There are many forces which must be absorbed by an astronaut's body during takeoff. NASA found that it could minimize these effects by seating the astronaut flat on their back with their knees raised. This enabled them to absorb the strong forces of gravity during takeoff.
