A Better Back App for the Modern Office
A healthy workday includes some time spent seated. But before you reach for that ergonomic chair with seventeen levers of adjustability, consider the fact that a comfy chair will only enable you to sit even longer than you should, not necessarily healthier. Instead, check out the latest offering in European design. Made in Sweden, the Back App 2.0 is an active chair that will keep you engaged and moving while you take your necessary sitting breaks.
The red ball at the base of the Back App puts the chair- and by extension, you- in a state of constant, smooth motion. Simply adjust the red ball up or down to increase or decrease the stability, and take a seat on the thickly padded seat. This chair's constant motions keep your stomach and back muscles active, thereby avoiding the atrophying effects of traditional chairs. The Back App's higher saddle seat encourages your pelvis into the ideal position, thus keeping your back, neck and head in the posture they were meant to be in, and taking the strain off your spine.
What's New With Back App 2.0?
The original Back App received high praise from the WorkWhileWalking.com product review site. This updated version keeps the variable imbalance feature (to keep your core muscles engaged and active even while sitting) and ergonomically-healthy saddle seat they loved about the original, while improving the active chair's overall aesthetics and seat design. Back App 2.0 features a less-pronounced saddle in the front and ridge in the back, two new features that make the seat more comfortable for more people. Additionally, the base is sleeker, slimmer, and more environmentally-friendly: Back App 2.0's base is made of 99.9% recycled, die-cast aluminum.
The Back App 2.0's sleek, Swedish design and excellent ergonomics won it the Award for Design Excellence by the Norwegian Design Council and received it a shining five out of five-star rating from WorkWhileWalking.com's expert review team. Read their full review here.
Note: The Back App does not adjust low enough to be used with standard desks that are 30" high or shorter.
Choose From a Panoply of Color
Back App 2.0 is available in black, blue, red, or anthracite Alcantara fabric – the same stunning upholstery used in luxury cars such as the Lamborghini Gallardo. It now also comes in Nordic Wool and Skai.
Active Chairs Use Wheels Too!
New to the Back App 2.0 is an optional wheel ring accessory. This add-on fits underneath the foot ring and makes it easier for you to move your Back App to another area, or even just scooch in an inch to find a better working position at your desk. The wheel ring is designed to preserve the Back App's variable balancing feature, so you can both rock and roll!
The Back App 2.0 is warranted against construction fault and broken parts for 2 years.
The Back App 2.0 arrives at your door in five to twelve business days from time of order and ships by UPS Ground.
