Why Swopper is good for your spine

Swopper is the original active chair from Aeris.

The Swopper can be configured to suit your own individual needs, add rollers, a back rest, choose a colour or fabric finish. Or choose the complete ‘Swopper Work’, designed specifically for the office environment.

All our Swoppers are fully adjustable. You can easily adjust the height, set the spring tension (how much it bounces), and even the amount the swopper sways. So any Swopper can be adjusted to fit you and your workspace.

How can you always keep moving? Just sit down.

From birth on we are programmed for movement; we need movement for healthy development and a healthy life. Unfortunately our modern daily life demands hours of sitting. Much as we would like to, we at aeris cannot change this – but we can change the way you sit!

Your body cries out for activity. Take heed of it.

The swopper is the first seat in the world to move in all three dimensions. For dynamic, ergonomic sitting. The function, design and engineering of the swopper have won many awards. However, our greatest reward is that the swopper fulfils your individual needs. Every second you sit on it. And move on it.

When you sit on the swopper you…

• strengthen your back
• train your muscles
• keep your intervertebral discs, tendons
and joints fit
• breathe deeper
• improve your concentration
• stimulate your circulation
• have fun sitting and working

Good circulation. Good mood.

Sitting on the swopper makes you straighten the upper part of your body, which frees the diaphragm, you breathe deeper and your circulation is stimulated. The result is better performance and higher concentration. Apart from that, bouncing up and down is good for the mind and soul – because it is purely and simply fun.

Always in motion.

By keeping balance on the sprung seat your body is always slightly in motion. Since the swopper can tilt towards your working surface, there is no longer any need to hunch your back.

Training for your 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.

Keeping ligaments and joints fit.

Moving your joints, even when sitting, stimulates the formation of synovia (joint fluid). This prevents arthritis and tightens the ligaments and tendons. In this way you can avert joint diseases.

Healthy intervertebral discs.

The swopper encourages you to sit up straight and change your position the whole time. This means that your intervertebral discs are loaded in parallel at alternating pressure points. This keeps the vertebral connections healthy and the cartilages well nourished so that your back remains elastic and resilient.
