The age-old problem: straitjacketed sitting.
Life means motion. The human body is not made for staying in one and the same position for hours on end. No wonder that almost 80% of the population of industrial nations suffer from backache. On a conventional office chair your body is locked in a seat pan between two armrests and the backrest and has to adapt to the inflexibility of the seat. The result: hunched back, tension, pain.
The solution: sit your way free!
The ergonomic, sprung, active swopper swivel chair adapts itself to you - not vice versa. Thanks to its worldwide unique flexibility, the swopper provides active sitting in three dimensions: backwards, forwards, sideways and up and down too. This dynamism supports and encourages healthy sitting in ever changing positions. Scientific studies confirm that on the swopper you move twice as much as on conventional seats.
6 powerful arguments for the swopper
1. Always sitting properly.
By keeping balance on the sprung seat your body is always slightly in motion. The frequent change of position animates you to adopt different postures. You automatically sit up straight more often. The joint in the spring strut permits the swopper to tilt towards your working surface. This means: you no longer need to hunch your back and your spine retains its natural S shape.
3. Training for the muscles.
Since your entire body is slightly in motion all the time on the swopper, practically all muscle groups remain active and well supplied with blood. The entire musculoskeletal or locomotor system is strengthened and can better keep your back upright. An active back cannot tense up and causes no pain.
5. Keeping ligaments and joints fit.
Moving your joints stimulates the formation of synovia (joint fluid). This helps to lubricate the joints. Static pressure on the joints – through hours of rigid sitting or standing, for example – squeezes out the synovia and the cartilages rub against each other. Nature has built our body to use our joints slightly all the time. This tightens the ligaments and tendons, which helps avert joint diseases. The active functions of the swopper and muvman keep your joints fit and healthy.
2. Good for the intervertebral discs.
Sitting upright and the constant changing of posture mean that your intervertebral discs are loaded in parallel at alternating pressure points. They are not squashed on one side for hours on end through hunching your back. This is important for the elasticity, resilience and health of the intervertebral discs
4. Avoid veins problems.
The swopper is effective against vein problems in two aspects: thanks to its arched seat there are no pressure points on the underside of your thighs and congestion is prevented. Furthermore, the sitting and moving on the swopper stimulates active transport of the blood to the heart via the muscles of the so-called calf pump.
6. Stimulation of circulation and mood.
Sitting on the swopper makes you straighten the upper part of your body. This frees the diaphragm so that you breathe deeper, the supply of oxygen to the blood is improved and your circulation is stimulated. You are more alert, more concentrated and perform better. Apart from that, bouncing up and down is not only good for your organs, but also for your mind and soul. The result: you will have a whole lot of fun with the swopper.
