The brand new Swopper AIR features feather light sitting comfort with 3DEA high tech cushioning and a climate control mesh seat fabric - perfect for heat-regulation and pressure-relief. 


Product Description

Custom orders only .... allow 10-12 weeks lead time.

Developed and produced by aeris GmbH in Germany by husband and wife team Joseph (an engineer) and Dorle (a world famous physio) Gloeckl, the Swopper was designed to help people relieve their back and spinal problems, and overcome the challenges our bodies face with static sitting.

It is the only seat in the world that can adapt to all three dimensions of human movement. This means that the Swopper moves forward, backward, sideways, all the way around, as well as up and down! You can also adjust the tension and movement of the spring, and change the lateral movement, so it can become more or less stable.

This movement, sometimes called "active sitting" or "sitting in motion" has been shown to be the basis for many beneficial health effects. A person no longer needs to lean forward towards the table and flex their spine to work, as the Swopper's flexible centre spring will bend forward, so there is no one-sided pressure on your intervertebral discs.

The new Swopper AIR use a new high tech 3DEA spacer fabric, also described as a three-dimensional textile, consisting of a top and bottom layer of performance fabric, held at a clearly defined distance by pressure-sensitive threads. The result bears resemblance to a textile sandwich that can be used as an elastic climate-comfort element in many objects or applications designed for sitting and reclined rest.

In addition the Swopper AIR uses an AIR CLIMATE breathable cover material for a cool modern look

A Great Solution to a Common Problem

The Swopper supports the weight of the pelvis and facilitates the proper use of the sit bones, encouraging an easeful distribution of weight. The movement of the seat sends a continual subtle message to "move up" which keeps the spine from slumping in a C curve, and the seat responds individually to the weight and body movement of each user. Tension is released throughout the shoulders and back.

This is an ideal chair for people whose work involves long periods of sitting as well as for those who have injured their backs.


Review by:
"As a neurophysiologist, I consider the swopper to be quite simply the most accomplished seating concept. It gets everything moving that therapists have been advising their pain-racked patients from a preventive-medical standpoint, but to date all too often without success. Here you do not sit, you are seated! As a sufferer of chronic back pain myself, I am convinced by the 'swopper' concept. I now have two swoppers, one in the office and one at home."

Review by:
Sitting at a desk is normally a nightmare for me. I cannot stop fidgeting and find that, even with good posture, after a while, I am uncomfortable. This is in part due to an old herniated disc in my lumbar spine. Over the course of writing 17 books on Body Control Pilates I have experimented with countless 'back' chairs. Finally I have found one that enables me to fidget to my heart's content while keeping my back in good alignment and pain free...I cannot recommend the Swopper highly enough. It actually makes working at the desk fun! (Posted on 5/07/2016)
