We spend almost two-thirds of our waking hours sitting down – working, driving, eating,relaxing, even playing. Human beings were not built for such a static, sedentary lifestyle,especially in fixed, motionless postures now known to be potential risk factors for chro n i cmusculoskeletal problems (most notably spinal pain). That’s why low back pain and othermusculoskeletal problems are at epidemic prop o rtions.N u merous chair companies have designed their chairs around the concept of total andcomplete
S TAT I C
s u pp ort, thinking that the more support the user has (and thusless motion), the better the seating device. Unfort u n a t e l y, thisonly serves to perpetuate the problem, leading the userdown the road to face more of the problems that as e d e n tary lifestyle has to off e r.The “evolutionof seating has finally produced abetter way to sit – Swopper!Swopper was developed by a German stru c t u r a lengineer and a world-class physiotherapist. Thishusband and wife team, Joseph and Dorle Gloeckl,combined both of their unique talents to bring about there v ol u t i on a ry Swopper. After years of treating patients forspinal pain, caused mainly by their bad sitting habits at work (sitting statically with poor posture for long periods of time),Mrs. Gloeckl realized that she needed to offer some newt reatment and relief. Understanding the physiological needs of thespine, she and her husband set out to create a therapeutic, energizing, painrelieving “platform” for those people who were truly interested in solvingtheir spinal prob l e m s .Swopper utilizes all of the principals of the physio-ball in a stable, moreadjustable format. The physio-ball is a mainstay within the physicaltherapy world. It allows the user to move randomly in multiple planes. Thiskeeps the spinal musculature and joints healthy and active. However, thephysio-ball also brings with it many hidden risks. Many people are unableto sit on the physio-ball due to clothing choices, work surface heights andspace re q ui rements. Swopper effectively solves all of these pro b l e m sby allowing users of all shapes and sizes to eff e c ti v e l yinstitute healthy sitting habits (with the addedbenefits of versatility and stability). We callthis “sitting in motion.”If you listen carefully to your customers,many will say: “I feel exhausted aftersitting all day – and my back hurts, too!Then they ask in wonder: “Why do I feellike this?” The answer lies in the ru l e s
