The human body was not designed to remain in the one position for long periods of time. Active sitting, also referred to as dynamic sitting, encourages the user to engage in alternating postures and movement. The concept is that flexibility and movement while sitting can be beneficial and make many seated tasks easier to perform.
In the field of ergonomics, the concept of active sitting is now gaining recognition and evolving, particularly among people whose work involves prolonged sitting. Moving while sitting strengthens and protects your back as well as enhancing alertness and concentration …. and the bonus is, it’s just a whole lot of fun.

American studies have shown that by loading the body slightly, the mental performance increases by about 15%. You achieve exactly this level of activity with the new ‘sitting in motion’ active seats. They ensure that you keep in motion even with sedentary activities; you always automatically sit correctly and thus avoid bad posture and tension of your body's entire support system.
In addition, sitting in motion keeps your body's neurophysiological functions ‘awake’; the nerve metabolism is stimulated, which in turn makes you more alert and helps you concentrate better.
New To Active Seating?
We suggest you start slowly. We recommend you start with 30 minutes of continuous use, and gradually build up each day by the same amount, depending on your level of fitness. Because you are actively using your muscles, it is important not to over do it!
"In the evolution of mankind the pelvis has become a "key organ". It is therefore the most important task of a society degraded to permanent sitting to maintain unrestricted mobility of the pelvis with a sitting angle as open as possible.
As a consequence of the open sitting angle and the ensuing relief of pressure on the internal organs, the body can develop freely and unconsciously. This in turn has a positive effect on the complex interaction of our biological functions (vestibular-kinaesthetic system, cardiovascular system, cerebral metabolism, internal organs)"
