ACTIVE SITTING WITH "FLEXTECH inside"
Movement while sitting helps to counteract the negative effects of prolonged sedentary periods. Interstuhl has introduced the FLEXTECH design variant to its product range and is now also offering six popular chair lines as dynamic solutions for 3D sitting.
The human body is a complex organism. It requires movement to stay healthy. However, humans now spend a significant portion of their day sitting down. Research (such as that conducted by the Fraunhofer IAO Institute for Industrial Engineering and the Department of Sports Medicine at the University of Tübingen) suggest that even two hours of moderate exercise per day are enough to counteract the negative effects of prolonged sitting. One way to do this is to maintain a healthy balance by doing physical activity and taking breaks from sitting. Another is to make the periods of sitting themselves as active as possible.
FLEXTECH increases the radius of activity for the chair user, expanding their range of movement options while sitting. A flexible cone in the chair mechanism enables the chair to become mobile in all directions. The principle is comparable with that of intervertebral discs in the human body. In this way, FLEXTECH ensures that part of this essential physical activity is already taking place while you are seated.
