Product Description

The HÅG Capisco is ideal for those of you who like variation and movement in your working day. You can adjust the HÅG Capisco saddle chair from a low seated position to a half standing position, which is just great for sit and stand chair adjustment.

No other office ergonomic work chair is so well adapted to working surfaces with different heights or to height adjustable work tables. HÅG Capisco saddle chair inspires you to try variation and new seating positions.

Capisco means 'I understand' in Italian, and few office chairs meet the body's natural need for movement and variation as well as HÅG Capisco saddle chair.

 Dr Judy Ford PhD  

  "High testicular temperature frequently contributes to male infertility...The problem is caused by heating of the testes during long periods of sitting...The temperature of the testes increased when the men (in the study) sat on any of the chairs other than the saddle chair...In some cases the temperature reached as high as 36°C. When men sat on the saddle chair the scrotal temperature did not increase; the average temperature was less than 33°C."

Dr Judy Ford PhD on a recent Finish study that investigated the impact of sitting on chairs on scrotal temperature and poor semen quality.

The human body is not designed for sitting still - this is why HÅG is different and provides the best sitting solutions by bringing variation and movement to the workplace.

Review by:
I have had this chair since 2009 and although it was not a BadBacks item back then I can only say the chair has been the best investment my company has made. We did research on all available ergonomic chairs and the reviews lived up to every expectation. If you spend any significant time at your desk then this is the chair you need. Do not hesitate to invest in your overall health. (Posted on 14/02/2017)
