Product Description

This is the saddle seat version of the famous Swopper (manufacturer: aeris GmbH).

Sitting on a saddle seat automatically puts you in a position that produces the least stress for muscles, ligaments and joints, which in turn relieves the stress on the lumbar discs and spine because the pelvis is properly positioned and stabilised. The pelvis is central and critical to correct spinal position because of the way it is attached to the spine by muscles and ligaments. Its position controls the curvature of the spine, and this, in turn, is pivotal to how much stress is induced on the spine when someone is seated.

Horse riders have great posture and a strong back - but not just from sitting in the saddle. It is sitting upright in the saddle combined with the movement and keeping balance through the horse's movement that produce the beneficial effects for the back. It is exactly this combination that the swopper with saddle seat provides.

Its great ergonomics for anybody that needs to sit at work, and its also a lot of fun. Movement and pelvic tilt all wrapped up in one product from German market leader Aeris.


Sitting on a moveable surface requires the active use of the legs and torso, and the Swopper Saddle is a fantastic way of combining movement with pelvic tilt.

Using your Swopper Saddle:
