How the Swopper Revolutionised Sitting !

Developed and produced by aeris GmbH in Germany by husband and wife team Joseph (an engineer) and Dorle (a world famous physio) Gloeckl, the Swopper was designed to help people relieve their back and spinal problems, and overcome the challenges our bodies face with static sitting.

It is the only seat in the world that can adapt to all three dimensions of human movement. This means that the Swopper moves forward, backward, sideways, all the way around, as well as up and down! You can also adjust the tension and movement of the spring, and change the lateral movement, so it can become more or less stable.

This movement, sometimes called "active sitting" or "sitting in motion" has been shown to be the basis for many beneficial health effects. A person no longer needs to lean forward towards the table and flex their spine to work, as the Swopper's flexible centre spring will bend forward, so there is no one-sided pressure on your intervertebral discs.

Ideal for the office and home, for physicians and therapists, artists, musicians and even corporate events and trade shows! The use of the chair is only limited by your imagination.

Features:

  • Sitting on a moveable surface requires the active use of the legs and torso, and the Swopper makes sitting fun and ergonomic in many ways:
  • Improves your posture through active sitting, relieving the pressure on painful discs.
  • Creates a fun way to sit, keeping the mind alert and focused.
  • Great for developing your core muscles (back and abdomen) - it is in fact a muscle toning device.
  • Improves nourishment to the intervertebral discs, keeping the spine uncompressed.
  • It helps promote circulation to your lower extremities, overcoming the muscle fatigue associated with sedentary work.
  • Actively assists lymphatic flow.

Using your Swopper:
