The Swopper

This Sparked Me!

What on earth is this ? It's an "active chair" which moves into three dimensions and supports active sitting. I use it in my office. It looks quite odd but it is a superb tool: I had very severe back pain a couple of years ago, and then switched to The Swopper. The chair encourages me to sit up straight and change my position (just a tiny little bit) the whole time. This is very healthy.

    You can also use a fitness ball (balance ball, physioball) as a chair - costs less than $25 and you can do all sorts of exercises on it (including core work). emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for the info! As someone with a bad back, this might just be of help!
