A person sitting on a saddle seat automatically assumes the position that produces the least stress for muscles, ligaments and joints, and so relieving 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 actually 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. Available with or without rollers.
Ideal as working stool for many jobs. And, of course, for all those who just have fun sitting on a real saddle seat.

How the Swopper Revolutionised Sitting
Designed and developed 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. Endorsed by ergonomists and architects alike, it’s certainly one of a kind!
