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. Endorsed by ergonomists and architects alike, it’s certainly one of a kind!
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.
Designed and developed 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.
All of our chairs can be done in different fabric.
