About the Company

Josef Glöckl founded the aeris company in 1996. In 1997 he presented a world innovation to the public: his new three-dimensional seat - the "swopper". With this Josef Glöckl had opened up a completely new line of attack against the number one public health concern: backache. The numerous awards won by the "swopper", considered as a revolutionary active seat, and the rising sales led aeris to start up its own production.

The 100,000th "swopper" was sold in 2004 and in 2006 another active-dynamic seat was added to the portfolio: the "muvman" - the active seat for standing/sitting. The aeris company became one of the TOP 100 of the most innovative small and medium-sized German businesses in 2007, thus bearing witness to the potential and dynamics of the company whose success has been established and constantly extended through increasing international activities and a steady growth of the portfolio.

Review by:
Late 2016 I bought a Muvman seat through BadBacks online and received it via post in a matter of days. It was one of the faster online to delivery at my door experiences I have had. Today I made a visit to their store just before close and was welcomed by the team at their Hawthorn location and was able to test and find the right products for my needs. Great company, great cause, supported and made happen by a equally great team. I recommend visiting their online and offline stores. Five stars (Posted on 6/04/2017)
